In 1997 in prayer I received a vision to start a men's Christian group. The women were meeting weekly at McDonalds for fellowship, but I wanted more. The first meeting of this men's group was on a Saturday in the church fellowship hall. The response was less than enthusiastic. I did not continue this until one of the men said, why don't we start the group again? This time we went to a restaurant and began to meet on Thursday mornings. The group began in October of 1997 and is still continuing. I named it the MPJ fellowship, Men Praising Jesus, a name ignored, but a name from scripture verses. MPJ Bible and Prayer Fellowship
The initials MPJ stand for the three scriptures used as the guiding purpose of our Christian fellowship. Love - Unity - Fruit - These are basic to the Christian faith. Matthew 22:37-39 (Love) - Philippians 2:2-5 (Unity) - John 15:16-17 (Fruit)
Mat 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
Mat 22:38 This is the first and great commandment.
Mat 22:39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Phil 2:2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
Phil 2:3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
Phil 2:4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
Phil 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
John 15:17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.
The men's group was opened up to the ladies as well.
The next year I got on the Internet through AOL. Most people were introduced to this new thing called the Internet through AOL. I began ministering in Christian Chat rooms. On December 31, 1998 we began an online Christian ministry: Eaglewings ministries. One of the founding members was Gramdotmom who is still with us. We have a weekly Friday night Bible study called Grace4U2. Tricia, Gram and Lisa have a Monday night praise Chatroom called Jesus We Come Rejoicing. The first online convert was Sarah. The LORD had his hand on Sarah and brought her from the miry clay and set her feet on the solid rock. Sarah's thoughts
Seven years ago one of the last to receive Jesus online was Susy. She has a ministry online of graphics and sharing the word, a remarkable ministry.
It is December 31, 2013 our 15 year anniversary.We have led hundreds to the Lord in this online ministry. Not many are being saved now but the ministry still seeks the lost and is a place of discipling through the word of God. In 1999 I began a Daily Bible lesson for the new converts. This is now called the Eaglewings Ministries Journal. The web site began in 2000 to save the studies through the Bible and testimonies. The place is called Eaglewings Ministries , Eaglewings ministries invite you to study the word of God online. Many are being led to the Lord from the Internet, so this source was meant for those who wish to be discipled and grow in the word of God. I hope that you will spend some time looking at what is in this online ministry source. Keep going and be faithful for Jesus is coming back soon. Join us in ministry. Superragman@aol.com (Gary)
