ON STAFF SINCE 2000
For many years of my life, I wondered where I would go when I died. I never found out the truth until I was 35 years old! Up until that time, I thought heaven could be earned by being a good person. My sister, Ellen, said one day, “Susan, if you can earn heaven, then why did Jesus Christ suffer and die?” That question really made me think and I began to search the Scriptures for the truth. In 1985 I repented of my sins and trusted in Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior.
In 1989 I started attending a Bible-preaching and teaching church. Being in a Bible study and hearing God’s Word taught every Sunday caused me to grow in my faith. At this church, there was an evangelist named Eric Briscoe, who was a missionary with Open Air Campaigners. One Sunday during church Eric asked the congregation if there was anyone interested in going into Boston to share their faith with people on the streets. I went and found witnessing on the streets to be scary but very exciting. I did this on and off for ten years until God called me full time to this ministry.
In 1999 the Lord prompted me to quit my job of 20 years and attend Washington Bible College. I did this and earned my Bible Certificate.
Since July of 2000 I have been on the streets of Boston doing open-air evangelism. In ministering to adults we paint on a sketchboard until a crowd gathers. The Gospel is then preached. If people are interested, I will counsel with them one-on-one. I also run a Bible Correspondence School for people we meet who are interested in learning more about God in a personal and intimate way. In between Gospel presentations, I hand out tracts and often get to talk with people. We have three children’s Bible clubs every week throughout the winter. Also in the winter, we go down into the subway to preach and teach God’s Word and every ten minutes, with the trains coming and going, we have a new congregation. We pass out many tracts in the subway, too.
Hundreds upon hundreds of unbelievers hear the Gospel preached every day who may never enter the doors of a church. We take God’s command literally to “Go…!” We go where the people are.
