Gus Wolman - Gus and his wife, Lisa, have started a "Music Ministry".  Our goal is to be able to get out and visit with folks about the good news of the Lord, Jesus Christ.  Gus will give testimony about how the Lord, Jesus Christ, took his addictions away.  "The Lord brought me up, out of the pit of destruction, out of miry clay; and he set my feet upon a rock, making my footsteps firm" (Psalms 40).  Gus' testimony will incorporate two/three of his country faith songs, which will make the presentation somewhat unique.  Gus performed on 8/26 at Richie's, just outside of Hawkins, in East Texas, where Gus and Lisa live.  Gus has another gig upcoming with the folks at "Sekond Chance Ministry"...note that the work "Second" is miss spelled intentionally, as the Load always give you a "second chance", and many more if you need them.  No mail marketing, etc...this will be a "word of mouth" project that will grow our Music Ministry over time.  "The proof is in the pudding", as they say.  We pray for all FWSA members and their families in these very troubled times.
