Dear Friends, April 2014
THANK YOU for all of your help in this first quarter of 2014. We have been blessed to see our Lord work in many
different situations and locations already this year. We started the year in Bible Baptist of Conroe where there was at
least one young lady that called upon the Lord to be saved and we finished up March in Lighthouse Baptist of La Porte
where at least one young man called upon the Lord to be saved and many others calling for help from God. There were
several people in between that did the same. There was not a mass movement of people but praise God, there was
some moved to call on the Lord. HE is still calling people to be saved, sanctified, and to service through the preaching of
HIS glorious Gospel and we are thankful some are responding to those calls. It encourages us to see the power of God
move upon a people, in a church, and in an era of time marked by a single summarizing term that I have not learned to
deal with, and that term is “whatever”. Frankly my friends I hope and pray that I never learn to deal with the attitude of
“whatever” because when it gets like that, if we wanted to be biblical with the word or term or attitude it represents,
then we would say “lukewarm”. We are encouraged to see that at least the Lord is still knocking on the door of the
heart and some people are opening their heart and inviting Him in, praise God!
We are looking forward to being in Calgary on April 13 – 18. Excited that we have confirmed dates to be in Bogota,
Colombia July 23 – 27 and in Cali, Colombia July 28 – Aug. 3. We are praying that it will still be open to get into Ukraine
in late Aug. thru early Sept., and we also have narrowed it down to late Sept. for our trip to Paraguay. I hope to have the
dates confirmed for each of these meetings soon. I have more fire in my heart than I have ever had for these
international meetings and I want to thank you for supporting them with your money and prayers, both are vital.
Your support helped us to preach in these places Jan-Mar, Bible Baptist Church in Conroe, TX / Shady Acres Baptist
Church in Houston, TX / Central Baptist Church in Harlingen, TX / Rock Bluff Baptist Church in Deleon, TX / Eastland
County Jail / Comanche County Jail / Smyrna Baptist Church in Union, MS / Grace Baptist Church in Evans, LA / Central
Baptist Church in Lanett, AL / Chattahoochee Valley Camp Meeting in Valley, AL / Lighthouse Baptist Church in La Porte,
TX . Without your support we would not be able to preach the Gospel in all the places, nor all the times God has given
unto us. Thank you for your sacrifice. Our God and His People have surely been good to us! Thanks!
In the Love of Christ Jesus,
Praise the Lord for His marvelous grace that He so mercifully blessed us with in 2013. After glancing back at where the Lord let us preach in 2013 ( 24 Churches with 18 in the U.S.A., 1 in Canada, 2 in Mexico, and 3 in the Ukraine,/ 8 prisons and jails, with 3 in TX, 2 in MS, 1 in TN, 1 in AR, and 1 in LA), I am amazed at the faithfulness of the Lord to call the sinner and comfort the saint with such a great salvation. I am amazed and thankful that even at a time that we see as the time of a great falling away, and even unto people who appear forsaken and dwell in forgotten places, the Lord is still redeeming, regenerating and registering in the Lamb’s Book of Life, the precious souls of all who will hear, believe, and obey His glorious Gospel. I am in awe of the great love He has demonstrated for His Church by not forsaking Her in this time that we see as the Laodicean or lukewarm era, but instead, Jesus has continued to knock at Her door to see if any will be zealous and repent. And some have done so and have experienced revival, refreshing, and a renewal of their love for God. I am thankful that we (you and I) have been blessed to be a small part of and to witness some of these great works of our Saviour. I pray that we will see some more get in before He comes again! Amen!
In Nov. and Dec. I preached at Havins Unit in Brownwood, TX / Forest City Federal Correction Inst. in Forest City, AR / Faith Baptist Church in Lambert, MS / Nimrod Baptist Church in Cisco, TX / Bible Baptist Church in Cisco, TX / Comanche County Jail in Comanche, TX / Eastland County Jail in Eastland, TX / Northwest Correctional Center in Tiptonville, TN
Thank you for all your support in 2013! I believe the Lord touched every bit of it and I know I used all of it. I am excited about the possibilities of God’s work in 2014. It appears that He has kept the door open for me in the Ukraine, Mexico, Canada, and that He has opened the door for me in Columbia and Paraguay. Help me pray because with these exciting possibilities comes some big responsibilities. First meeting of the year is a revival meeting Sun. Jan 5 – Wed. Jan.8 at BBC of Conroe and the services will be live streamed on stevebrownministries.com. Shady Acres Camp Meeting starts the next Sun. Jan. 12 and goes thru Fri. Jan.17 and it will also be live streamed. Praying sinners will be saved, saints will be edified, and our Saviour will be glorified. Again thanks for all your help and God bless you!
In His marvelous grace,
Dear Friends, Time has gotten away from me again, but it is only a month later than I had planned to write. I am happy to tell you that the Lord has continued to bless the meetings this year and the meeting in the Ukraine went very good this year. I amthankful for the Lord and his work there in the Ukraine, as He continues to grow His Church there. It is a great joy to seethose who have been saved in past meetings still there with a smile and a radiance that can only come from Christ. It is ajoy to see The Lord still use these meetings to save souls, as at least 2 young men confessed the Lord had saved them this year. It is a joy to see the intensity of this meeting has not diminished, but rather has grown. It is a joy to see theyoung Pastor Bro. Danic growing at such a rapid pace, both in wisdom and passion. It is a joy to see the Lord blessing Bro. Andrei’s business as he continues to be faithful. It is a joy to see the Lord bless and use Bro. Chuck and his family insuch a great way for these many years now. I look forward to next year, Lord willing.In the last 3 months I have had the privilege of being in these places, Comanche County Jail – Eastland County Jail –Shady Acres Baptist Church in Houston, TX – Olden Baptist Church in Olden, TX – Novoselitsa, Tzintini, & Hreatska,Ukraine – Grace Baptist Church in Evans, LA – West Baptist Church in Oakdale, LA – Rock Bluff Baptist Church in Deleon,TX – Northwest Correctional Center in Tiptonville, TN – Calvary Independent Baptist Church in Hornbeak, TN – Haven ofRest Baptist Church in Calhoun, GA – Bible Baptist Church in Conroe, TX – Lighthouse Baptist Church in La Porte, TX –Bible Baptist Church in Cisco, TX.I am excited about having been in 3 mission conferences in the last couple of weeks, where there has been well over a million dollars promised to their mission giving through their Faith Promise for the next year. My international schedulefor next year looks like it will be growing again.I have dates set for Canada, Colombia, and Ukraine, and tentative datesfor Mexico and Paraguay.My schedule for the rest of 2013 is not nearly as full, which will give me some much needed time at home. So help me to pray that I will be able to get caught up on some things that need to be done and I will be able to get some rest in theprocess. Through your support of finances and prayer, I have been given the time, money and power of God to serve in all these places. Thank you! I pray all that has been accomplished is added to your treasures that are laid up in heavenand that God blesses you and your families here and now for your generosity to me.Bro. Terrell
I am thankful that the Lord saw fit to show Himself strong in the meetings we had in June and July. I can only pray that he will give you a glimpse of how your prayer and support for us was answered, for it is not possible for me to do justice in telling of all He has done. Even if I tell about how in the First Annual Missions Revival at Faith Baptist of Lambert, MS, which is in the poorest county of one of the poorest states in the USA, there was over twenty thousand dollars given to pay off some property for a Christian transitional house in North Carolina for newly released prisoners with no place or people to go to, except the streets. Even if I tell about how the Lord touched the hearts of many teen-aged boys and girls at Shady Acres Teen Camp, giving them an opportunity to be saved and live for His glory now, hopefully escaping many of sorrows and scars this sin filled world would leave on them otherwise. Even if I tell about the Pastor’s Conference at Calvary Baptist in Santa Catarina, Nueva Leon, Mexico where there was over 50 Pastors and another 20 or so Missionaries and Evangelists, along with many of their families and some of their flocks, all amounting to several hundred people a day that the Lord came and met with in a mighty way, bringing hope and help in a difficult time. Even if I tell of the Lord bringing healing, hope, and the Spirit of revival to the men in the Northwest Correctional Center in Tiptonville, TN, a place where few would believe that could happen. Even all of that would not come close to telling all that He has done for us in these last 2 months through your prayer and support for us. Thank you and thank God!
In June and July we were allowed to preach at Faith Baptist Church in Lambert, MS - Shady Acres Teen Camp – Faith Baptist Church in San Antonio, TX - Calvary Baptist Church in Santa Catarina, Nueva Leon, MX,- Bible Baptist Church in Cisco, TX – Northwest Correctional Complex in Tiptonville, TN – Havins Unit in Brownwood, TX – Comanche County Jail – Eastland County Jail.
I pray that you would ask that God would give us life changing help for His glory in the Camp Meeting at Shady Acres this Aug. 11-16, and also for the Third Annual Meeting in the Ukraine from Aug. 22 – Sept.4. I will actually be leaving on Aug.20 and returning on Sept.5 having a one night layover each way in Timisoara, Romania. The good part of that is it has provided me with the chance to be with Bro. Peter Heisey, who is a missionary to the Gypsy people there. So please pray the Lord will supply the spiritual, physical, and financial needs, for I do need all He can send.
Thank you my friends for all that you have done and are doing for me! God bless you!

February and March were exciting months for me. There were over 70 people who made professions of faith in the Lord and numerous others came to the altars, at the meetings that I was in these last two months. I am always amazed at how the Lord works and changes lives through the preaching of the Gospel. I am thankful for the Lord allowing me to be involved in His work, as there is no other work that compares to His.
February and March were also busy months for me. This is a list of the places I was in these last two months.

My international meetings for 2013 start this month at Solid Rock Baptist Church in Calgary, Canada (14-23)
and then on to Lighthouse Baptist Church in Mexico City, Mexico (May 11-16). I am looking for God to do a real work in each of these meetings for our friends in the north and the south. I am also scheduled to be in Novosolytsa, Ukraine (Aug. 22-Sept. 5) and Colombia (tba). I hope that you will help me pray for enough financial support to not only do these meetings, but also to do some more international and evangelistic meetings that are on my heart.
I am thankful for your prayers and financial support; frankly I would already be done without each prayer and each dollar you have generously offered, (sweated for, labored for, saved for, traded for, done without for, i.e. I know it cost you), on my behalf. Knowing that, I ask that you pray with me that the urgent needs that I am (we are) facing will not distract, discourage, or detour me (you) from the course the Lord has set before me (us). Thank you and God bless y’all!
Through HIS Grace,
Evangelist: Terrell Jackson
January 2013 is now just history, I will remember it as a month that was full of God’s presence and blessings. The meetings that I was in this month were full of the presence of God, as He made known His great care, compassion, and comfort for His people, His desire to fill them with the Holy Ghost and wisdom, and also His great desire to save the lost. Yes, He made it known that His great commission still is to seek and save that which is lost and was urging the Church to get involved with Him and go and win the lost. It is amazing to me that our Lord does this even at a time when most people are uninterested and unmoved by any of these things, which inspires me to believe that our, wonderful Lord Jesus Christ is still willing to bring revival to His Church, both individually and corporately. I am thankful that He is not only able to perform, but that He is also still willing to perform the greatest miracle, saving a sinner such as me.
I was allowed to preach this month at Bible Baptist Church in Conroe, TX, Shady Acres Baptist Church in Houston, TX, Central Baptist Church in Harlingen, TX, Rock Bluff Baptist Church in DeLeon, TX, Crockett Elementary School in Houston, TX, Grace Christian School in Harlingen, TX, Comanche County Jail in Comanche, TX, Eastland County Jail in Eastland, TX
Feb. is shaping up to be a unique month. Since no Churches wanted me for a meeting in Feb. The Lord allowed me to fill my schedule with all prison meetings, so I reckon Feb. is prison month for me. I am excited to be working with Cross-Roads Ministries in Brownwood, TX, Calvary Prison Ministries in Tiptonville, TN, and Sealed Unto Redemption Prison Ministries in Vaiden, MS and Baton Rouge, LA this month. Please pray for these men who will be at these meetings that God would save them. Why even the lost praise God when men get saved from this so called life of crime and chaos.
My international meetings that I have scheduled so far for this year are Calgary, Canada on April 14-19, Mexico City, Mexico on May 11-16, and Novosolytsa, Ukraine on Aug. 22 thru Sept. 05, and Columbia’s date is still pending. I am praying that the funding for these trips will come in soon, since that seems to be the most difficult part of the task for me.
Thank you my Friends for your faithful prayers and generous support. I pray that our Lord will bless you greatly for your continued sacrificial giving, so that we together can preach the Gospel, to His glory, where He sends us. God bless you!
In His service,

Rom. 10:14-15 - And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent?
As I spent a few moments reflecting on 2012, I was wondering how to tell the story of the people that were able to hear the blessed Gospel of the God who loves them and gave Himself for them preached because of your help. I wondered if I should tell of the Church members that were down and on their way out, but were refreshed and encouraged by that preached Word of God to go on a little farther for God. Or if I should tell about the preacher who was ready to quit on God, the Church and his family, but God sent the exact message they needed to hear to rejuvenate them. Or tell of the family that was broken and falling apart at the seams, but a preacher was sent with the Gospel of forgiveness and love, and the family is together today. Or do I tell of the young man in prison that was living like and looking like a girl, that came wandering into a prison revival meeting and was so moved by the Word of God that the tears looked like a small river channeling down his face and he came back all four other nights I was there looking and acting different than he came originally. Or can I tell of the four young men gathered around an altar calling on God with some receiving salvation and others even answering the call to preach. Or should I tell of the young girls who were saved in Mexico, the folks in Canada who were renewed and inspired, or even of the deep burning fire of God placed in several people’s hearts in the Ukraine, or maybe the young single mom in Mississippi that got gloriously saved, who had been forgotten by all but the Church and Christ. The limitations of time and space prevent me from being able to tell all their stories, but I just want to remind you that you have treasures in heaven from what you have sown in sending me. I have trips to Canada, Mexico, Colombia, and the Ukraine tentatively set for 2013. There are also some other evangelistic meetings that I am praying about and am fairly sure the Lord would have me take, so I need to start raising support for these now because I am still in the red from last year, but I am determined to keep going. I hope you will pray with me about these matters. Thank you for continuing to send me, as I am most thankful for that privilege, and couldn’t go without you.
In Nov. and Dec. I preached at Central Baptist Church in Harlingen, TX, T.R.Havins Unit in Brownwood, TX, Eastland County Jail in Eastland, TX, Comanche County Jail in Comanche, TX, Bible Baptist Church in Cisco, TX, Rock Bluff Baptist Church in DeLeon, TX, and Silvery Lane Baptist Church in Dearborn Heights, MI.
I am excited to see what will happen in 2013, my second full year in Evangelism, and there are many gaps in my schedule. I am eager to see who I will be sent to. Again thank you for all your help and support as we labor together with God . I pray that He blesses you richly for your efforts.
In and through His marvelous grace
