 Evangelist To Mexico!

Fluent in Spanish, as many as twelve times a year Monk Bob travels to Mexico to preach the Gospel there.

Street Witness with Monk Bob!

      Three times a day; Monday-Friday, and twice on Saturday; for about an hour each time, Monk Bob may be found preaching the Gospel in downtown  Portland, Oregon (except when he's preaching the Good News of Jesus in Mexico). 

     Often Monk Bob is joined by other  Christians.  Some street-preach, some do one-on-one witnessing, some pass out Gospel tracts.  If you are a Born-again Christian in the Portland area, and would like to join Monk Bob to do one of these; or just learn from listening and be there to pray for Bob's ministry; he welcomes you!

Tell others about Jesus like Monk Bob does:

Though not all Christians are called to the ministry of an Evangelist, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). ___________________________

    Three times a day, Monday through Friday, twice on Saturdays; and for about an hour each time; Monk Bob proclaims the good news of Jesus Christ to the lost in downtown Portland, Oregon.  Fluent in Spanish, many a year Bob travels to Mexico to preach the Gospel there.  In the past three years he has only missed four days when he was very sick.

   "If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you..."  

- John 15:20

   He is often threatened.  He has had boiling coffee thrown on him several times.  Verbal abuse and shouted obscenities are a daily occurrence.  One man that threw coffee on Bob returned a few days later to do it again.  Several days later he sat beside Monk Bob and apologized.  The man continued coming and sitting beside Bob, now attentive to and thankful for God's Word.*

 *Update: This event took place in 1999.  The man, who's name is Bryce, became a Christian through Monk Bob's ministry.  Bryce joined a Christian Church, and two years later, met and married his Christian wife.  Today (the time of this writing is May 14, 2002) Bryce came up to Monk Bob to show off his new four-month old baby.

God Uses Monk Bob's Street Preaching to Prevent a Suicide

      Monk Bob was preaching in Downtown Portland as he does three times a day, every day.  A man was listening to him and began crying profusely.  He said that he had been on his way to commit suicide when he heard Monk Bob talking about Jesus' love for him, and no longer could do it.  Please pray for this man, that he would receive Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Saviour.

    The greatest joy, Monk Bob says, is when he feels; "Lord, you used your servant and I feel so grateful.  Thank you, Jesus."  Often people come up to him and tell him how, several days before, he'd "made their day."

    There is the joy of "meeting someone you'd led to the Lord years before, who is still strong for Christ."  There are also the unexpected joys, like when a man ran across the street towards Bob, dropped his bag, fell on his knees, and asked to be prayed with to receive Christ's salvation.

    One woman came up to Monk Bob and said, "You preach with such love to the people."  Bob says, "That's what you want to hear."  He pauses, "There's been fourteen or fifteen times when I've felt God's love for the lost so strongly that I had to stop preaching before I started crying."
