Note From Sis. Cindy:
Hello Saints,
   On our way to Florida to start the semester of preaching, Bro. Jed dropped me off for a week at my mother's in Albany, Georgia, to help her with some decluttering and have a much-needed visit.  Mother is caring for my step-father who had three major strokes a couple of years ago.  The negative of all this was that Bro. Jed had to start the first week of preaching with a bad cough and chest cold.  For the first time in 4 decades, his voice was weak!  I was torn about not going with him but a angel, Sister Angela Cummings saved the week!  She met Bro. Jed on the campuses this week and did a marvelous job of ministry. Thank you Sis. Angela Cummings! (Pray for her now ministering in Europe and follow her on Facebook.)
   Sis. Pat and I joined Bro. Jed at the University of Central Florida for Week Two.  I am glad that we brought our winter clothes for this 3 1/2 month trek across the southern states because we have had some really cold days!  We are now in our fourth week of ministry and we have had great crowds and many open hearts to talk to. Don't miss the pictures and details in the upcoming journals. The Holy Spirit is moving! 
   It is not too late to be a part of this Winter/Spring Mission. Gifts for expenses are always a blessing, large or small.  Prayers are coveted and much needed.
Love in Christ to you all!


January 7, 2014, University of Florida,

It was only in the thirties when Angela started the meeting at 12:45. I was concerned that my voice was not strong enough to gather a crowd and my cold (mostly cough) has sapped me of much of my energy.

Angela spoke of a Florida pizza delivery man, who was arrested for bestiality with his roommate's mixed German Shepherd. She reported how yesterday some student claimed that anal sex was a gift from God. Lust knows no bounds. Once men get into masturbation and pornography, they are liable to do about anything. The fantasies they dwell upon in their perverted minds will eventually be brought out in practice. When youth are taught all their lives that they are animals, perhaps it should not be surprising that they will end up mating with brute beasts. The name of the Pizza Company that the pervert worked for has been publicized. It could result in ruining their national franchise. No wonder the OT called for the death penalty for bestiality.

Sis. Angela starts the meeting at UF with mention of a recent bestiality case involving a pizza delivery man and his roomate's dog.

Angela worked hard and after 30 minutes drew a crowd of over fifty, which was spread out in a large circle. She was unable to get much interaction going with the students. One professing Christian interrupted her to state, "God is all about love not hate. One everyone needs is a good hug." He then went up and hugged a gay blade. When I started preaching, my voice was weaker than I can ever remember. I had to turn the meeting back to Angela within fifteen minutes after losing much of the audience. I probably could have continued if I had been successful in engaging the students in dialogue.

In Angela's second round she acknowledged that many opposed women preachers. However, she reminded everyone that the first person to announce Jesus' resurrection was a woman; she was used to instruct Jesus' skeptical male disciples of the good news.

Small groups gathered to hear in the freezing temperatures.

This time Angela drew an audience of about 20, who gathered much closer than the first crowd. She interacted with three boys distributing coupon books. Meanwhile, many students on the side wanted to have their picture taken with me holding my YOU DESERVE HELL sign. I was happy to accommodate them since I figured the pictures would end up on FB. My second turn was also difficult. I did have support from a large black girl, who would often quote along with me that Bible verses which I proclaimed. There were several Christians in the crowd, one of whom was witnessing to a few students. I spoke until almost 3 PM but once again my voice was giving out. I could not locate Angela in the area; I assumed she left for the day. However, later I learned that she had just taken a break for hot tea.

Angela carried the load of the preaching. Students did not get angry at our preaching today. Maybe the cold weather froze their fury. I was hoping to preach the cold out of my body. However, it did not seem to work as it sometimes has in the past.
January 8, 2014, University of South Florida,

As I was waiting on Angela, Bradley Orr, a FB friend, sat down to converse. Bradley is a maintenance technician on campus. He had been positively influenced by preachers J.K. and Larry Keffer. When Bradley first heard the campus preachers five years ago, he was a backslider, who believed the confrontational style to be too harsh. However, the Lord showed him that the intent was to polarize and force people to take a stand for or against God. He acknowledged that he has more opportunities to witness when the preachers are on campus.

Soon Angela arrived with a gay blade following her. He wanted to know why homosexuality made him deserving of Hell. However, it was immediately evident that he was not interested in answers but simply wanted to justify his perversion. I informed him his problem was not really sodomy but it was his selfishness.

There was a large number of sodomites in the crowd at USF making it hard to distinguish between male and female.

 Angela, "the drama queen," got things rolling by literally rolling on the grass with laughter at the thought of Pope Francis being named as the man of the year by Time Magazine. No one could accuse Angela of being inhibited, which is a positive and probably necessary qualification for an open-air preacher. Sinners certainly are not inhibited in flaunting their sin. She gathered a crowd of close to a hundred with many of them sitting at the tables outside of Cooper Hall, where they also get their lunch from the Subway Restaurant in the building.

I consider it an answer to the prayers of Sister Cindy and my friends that my voice was stronger today. Yet, it is still significantly weaker than normal. Perhaps, I will yet preach this cough and congestion out of my body. Can these ailments stand long against the Holy Ghost? With a significant number of sodomites in the audience, the questions dealt largely with sexual issues. There was one boisterous well-endowed female flashing much cleavage; she evidently did not care whether she was with a male or female sexually. I often wonder what these people are studying and planning to be, if they should end up graduating from these institutions of low-living.

I dealt with the accusation of alleged Bible contradictions. What these students see as contradictions are often a result of failing to understand the differences between the OT and NT and failing to make a distinction of the moral law which is everlasting and universal and the ceremonial law which is temporary and exclusively for the Jews. They claim they have read the Bible, when in fact they have usually just read a list of alleged contradictions from the Internet. Perhaps a few have actually read the Bible but they do not understand the book.

Bro. Jed explains the alleged contradictions in the Bible.

I preached and taught for over an hour and turned the meeting back to Angela. I had many photo ops with students wanting their picture taken with me holding my YOU DESERVE HELL sign. Jim Webber made several of these signs for us over the holidays, which are much better than the handmade signs we have using. Eventually, I took the sign back to the car to exchange it for my staff crucifix for my final session, during which I preached Christ crucified, which to the gentiles is foolishness. I finished up with my testimony. But for some reason I lost their attention before I finished as they began to converse among themselves. By this time my voice was weakening so I called upon Angela again. She made a short attempt to regain their attention, but failed. We departed at 4 PM. A number of students applauded us before we left.

Considering the weather was still cold, low sixties, for South Florida, we did pretty well today.


January 9, 2014, University of South Florida,

I have always said that a good preacher will use the arts, including theater, to convey his message. . According to a Wikipedia article, "Street theater is arguably the oldest form of theater in existence: most mainstream entertainment mediums can be traced back to origins in street performing, including religious passion plays and many other forms. The logistics of doing street theater necessitate simple costumes

and props, and often there is little or no amplification of sound, with actors depending on their natural vocal and physical ability. The performances need to be highly visible, loud and simple to follow in order to attract a crowd."

The logistics and requirements of open-air preaching are the same as street theater, except we have the anointing of the Holy Ghost and the Bible. Angela has the creative mind necessary for successful street evangelism. Today, for her prop she used a foam finger as a glove, like one might see at sporting events where fans promote their team as number one. She used the prop as a parody of Miley Cyrus' infamous, lewd, twerking dance. On the foam finger she wrote "no twerking--repent." The students are more into twerking than they are studying. Few are true thinkers, while many are twerkers. She drew a huge crowd; many recorded her performance, probably to later post on FB or even YouTube. Angela worked a gospel message into her lampoon of Miley. Unfortunately, a thunder storm scattered the crowd as quickly as it gathered.

The next hour was taken up in one on one witnessing. Angela witnessed to a girl from India with whom she also prayed and left with tracts. Another girl, who had never heard of twerking, listened to Angela for twenty minutes while holding a heavy box of stuff. I finally said to the girl, "You need to put down your box." She kept holding the substantial box. Finally, I exhorted her to repent. She left when I spoke up again. Angela explained that the girl's determination to hold unto the box, when she could have easily put it on the table, was representative of the heavy load of sin she was refusing to release. Meanwhile, an articulate girl instructed me for fifteen minutes on the proper way of evangelizing.

It can be demonstrated that much if not most of the Biblical preaching was done in an outdoor setting.

 At 3 PM it started raining again. So we decided to call it a day. The Wikepedia article concludes, "A street theatre performance is not a lesser form than an indoor performance, nor is it simply taking what you do on stage and placing it outdoors, but a form with an energy and an integrity of its own." The same could be said of street preaching in comparison to the sermons within the four walls of a church building. It can be demonstrated that much if not most of the Biblical preaching was done in an outdoor setting.

Angela told a group of students how once during Easter she preached wearing a rabbit suit and carrying a cross to illustrate that the true meaning of Easter is not about a bunny but about the crucifixion of our Lord. Ruben is famous for

his cow's outfit, which he wears when he preaches at Hare Krishna gatherings.

Angela is going to Europe within five days for an indefinite tour. Readers would do well to invest in her ministry. She should take Europe with a storm.

I did preach one straight gospel sermon to several students who were sitting at the tables. My voice and energy level is still below normal so I was happy to have Angela, who is supposed to be my backup, in the forefront again today. As we were leaving a few students came up to Angela and told her how much they enjoyed her sermon. 


January 10, 2014, University of South Florida,

I had low expectations since past experiences have demonstrated that this campus is relatively dead on Friday. Therefore, I started earlier than usual at 1O:45. I did gather an audience that at times reached close to fifty. A homo, Matthew, has been in the audience daily. I used him as my foil for my lecture "Sex Ed with Brother Jed." Students correct me when I say you must stop "homoing and lesboing" one another. "The word homosexual is a noun not a verb," they say.

Local brothers were at USF passing out tracts.
Three local brothers were on campus witnessing and passing out tracts; they appreciated my preaching. I was somewhat concerned since some of the brothers cannot handle my human sexuality class. One spoke boldly for about five minutes; he rebuked the homo as an abomination and commend me for preaching the love of God. It is always effective when other Christians affirm the preacher's message. I picked up that they were probably Baptists, who likely would not agree with some of my doctrines. However, they were mature enough in the faith to not make an issue out of differences since we apparently agreed on the basics.

Angela arrived at noon. She said she was distressed in her spirit over the fact that so many that she went to Bible School with that claimed to be called into the ministry are not active for the Lord now. She continued effectively use her prop, the foam finger.

I took another hour turn; I addressed some of the theological issues including the reasons that God will put us to the test, which is mostly to build our character. I explained how God also puts himself to the test as he did through the ministry of his Son Jesus Christ "who learned obedience by the things which he suffered."-Hebrews 5:8. God also put himself to the test in the Job narrative; Job proved that God was right about Job's character. Job's patience demonstrated that all men do not have a price as Satan, the cynic, claimed concerning God's faithful servant, Job. Our God will never test us above what we are able to endure. Job endured. And we must endure unto the end in order to be saved. Life is a constant test.

Sis. Angela was a great blessing this week. She pulled the load while I was getting over my cough. 

Today exceeded my expectations. At 2 PM I left the students with Sister Angela. I drove to Sarasota; Sunday I will preach in Punta Gorda for Pastor Clyde Swalls, my boyhood friend, who led me to the Lord. Each day my voice is regaining strength. The sun and warmer weather in the high seventies was helpful today.
