The Lord saved me at the age of 15 as a result of the infamous 9/11 attacks.  I had been attending the St. Amant Baptist Church in St. Amant, Louisiana, as a bus kid since I was five years old.  I remember being talked to about salvation often as a child, but I don’t think I really understood it.  When I became a teenager, my understanding of the Gospel changed. I knew that I was a sinner and that I must trust Jesus alone for salvation; however, my pride, rebellion, and self-reliance made me confident that my sinful lifestyle was okay the way it was without becoming one of “the church people.”  Yet, when I heard that the Twin Towers had fallen to terrorists, I didn’t feel so invincible after all.  As a result of that tragic day, I neither slept nor ate well because of the deep fear in my heart that I might go to Hell. God definitely had my attention. I thought, What if I had died in one of those crashes?  On the next church service that came around, I fell under the conviction of the Holy Spirit for my sin and asked Jesus to be my personal Saviour.  He has forever changed my life.


I was privileged and blessed to be reared in a loving Christian home.  My parents made sure from the time I was a baby that I was at church three times a week. My kindergarten Sunday school teacher asked me in class if I knew for sure when I died if I would go to Heaven. I told her, “Yes, I would go to Heaven,” and I honestly thought I would because my parents took me to church three times a week and made me behave.  She told me I would not go to Heaven, because being good does not save you. I realized I was a sinner and could not go to Heaven on my own. That day after class, I bowed my head and asked Jesus to come into my heart.

Through much prayer and listening to the Holy Spirit’s leading, my wife and I have decided to join forces with veteran missionary Brian Johnston and his family in reaching the people of Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area.  Bro. Johnston has labored for ten years in the Toronto area to win souls, disciple believers, plant churches, and build a strong, pattern church, the Gospel Light Baptist Church.  Our plan is to join his team in planting, multiplying, and strengthening churches all around the Toronto area.

Brian and Liz Hebert Prayer Letter: Springing Forward

Brian and Liz Hebert Prayer Letter: Springing ForwardWe’ve had a busy past couple of months, and we’re grateful to have you be a part of it through your faithful prayers. March started out with a very helpful time of enrichment for my wife and me, as we attended a seminar for mental health, which taught about how to handle life’s most stressful and difficult challenges with Christ as our guide. It was a blessing to me, as this is something God has led me to focus on as I pursue continuing education in Biblical counseling. My heart’s desire is to share the love of God through the counsel of His Word.

Our youth also had a great opportunity for a unique Youth Rally that centered on training teens for ministry. There were several messages from young men called to preach, classes on evangelistic song leading, how to write a sermon, how to design Gospel tracts, painting, and other encouragements. I’m excited for what our youth can do for the Lord now and in the future. Please join me in prayer for their spiritual growth and training.

March is a time when Persian people celebrate their own new year called Nowruz (no-roos). Pastor Johnston felt the Lord would have us dedicate a Sunday to celebrate and invite many Persian people in our city to come and hear about the true hope for a new beginning—the Lord Jesus Christ. Everyone put in a lot of effort to give out special invitations to neighbours and to others all across our city. We had several visitors, one of whom is still coming to this day. Praise the Lord!

Speaking of Persian outreach, please pray for a lady with whom my wife had been meeting (we’ll call her Martha for privacy and safety) to go through an evangelistic Bible study. She has certainly rejected Islam but isn’t saved yet. She is open to the Gospel, and I believe Liz was making great strides in getting through to her about Jesus. Unfortunately, some unforeseen circumstances have interrupted their meetings, and they won’t be able to meet for some time. Please pray for the Gospel seed already planted.

In April, I had hernia surgery, and by the time you’re reading this, I’m well on my way to getting back to semi-normal. I had the surgery at the world-renown Shouldice Hospital in Thornhill, Ontario, which has developed a remarkable method of treating hernias that heal relatively quickly. I thank God such a place is available near us.

Continue to pray for me as I disciple and counsel a couple of men, and others as soon as the Lord gives me opportunity, who are going through difficult times. I believe strong, encouraged men make for a stronger church that can go forth in power and love to reach others for Christ. God be with you all as you serve where you are.

Your friend and co-labourer,

Brian Hebert
