2 Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.
On Monday, December 6, 2021, Amy, and I went to Sam’s Club on a cold windy afternoon. As we walked in, a short stocky older gentleman got Amy’s attention and said that she must be a tough lady. Amy only had on a short sleeve t-shirt and this man showed us that he had on 2 sweatshirts and a coat.
We went our own separate ways, and at this point, we probably wouldn’t have ever thought of this man again. However, about 15 minutes later we saw the man again standing in front of a display of Kraft Mac & Cheese. The man said to Amy, you are just the person I have a question for. What kind of cheese would you use to add extra cheese for more flavor?
Amy then gave her advice and I said to the man you don’t have a clue, but you just asked a person whose favorite food in the world is cheese. He said he told us that Amy was just the person to answer his question. He then said God crosses our paths for a reason.
Amy then said you didn’t know you were talking to a preacher and his wife. He shook my hand and Amy started explaining that we were at Sam’s buying groceries for a meal that our home church, The Father’s House would be preparing and delivering to about 25 people the next day.
At that time, the man reached into his pocket and grabbed some cash. He then handed me a $20 bill and asked if that would help us for the meal. We thanked and told him how grateful we were.
As we started to make our way down the next isle, the man called out again and said to us that God spoken to him and said that this man doesn’t believe as much as he should.
After asking him to repeat himself, I asked him why he thought God would say that to him. His reply was I’m not sure. I said we will pray that God shows you clearly what He means and as a matter of fact, let us pray for you right now.
Amy and I stood there in the aisle of Sam’s Club and laid hands on him and prayed that God would reveal to this gentleman what he needed to know.
We said our goodbyes and the man was totally gone. We didn’t see him again and actually had no indication (other than the $20 bill he gave us) that he even existed.
Amy and I walked a few steps down the aisle and then looked at each other and nearly in unison said do you think he was an Angel? Neither of us know for certain what had just taken place, but we hope we did ok in the eyes of the Lord – Angel or not.
As Amy and I continue with our online ministry efforts, we have started an in-home church called The Father’s House in 2021. As with most all ministry work, it takes a significant amount of money to make things run.
We have been in the process of making our organization an “official” (you know, the government gets involved in things) recognized entity. Doing so is not cheap, and we still have expenses coming in for that. Along with regular operating expenses, meeting our budget is difficult, but God has always blessed us in having our bills paid.
Amy nor I neither one takes any compensation from the church or ministry. Every dollar we bring in from tithes, offerings or gifts goes directly back into the work we do for God’s Kingdom.
First, we ask you to pray for all of our different ministry efforts. We have seen souls won, lives changed, and healing miracles, all that only OUR GOD can do. Then, we ask if you would also prayerfully consider giving a financial blessing to the ministry God has called us to. You can give by clicking this link:
Go here to financially support Ed Boston Ministries and The Father’s House.
As a ministry, we are always looking for new ways to get the Word of Jesus Christ out to more people. Having noticed numerous Pastors who are using this way of communicating, including Pastor Greg Locke – who I admire his work greatly, I have decided to test the waters.

Each night since March 18th (minus 1 night), Ed Boston Ministries has hosted an online Prayer Service in response to the National Emergency happening in the United States and around the world.
With this being Holy Week, we thought we would have a special Prayer Service on Good Friday at 7 pm eastern on the ministry Facebook page. The link there is www.facebook.com/edbostonministries. This service will be different than what we have been doing each night, so why not join us and help us observe Good Friday!
Beginning tonight, March 18th, Ed Boston Ministries will begin hosting an online Prayer Service at 7 pm eastern for the indefinite future. The world is experiencing situations like no other in our lifetime and the answer to this is PRAYER.
A few moments to look back, but more importantly a look at the future.
Ed Boston Ministries has gone by many names and has been primarily a Chriatian podcast since the beginning back in 2008.
There have been political discussions, interviews, road trips, celebrity friends of the podcast, sermons preached, and so much more.
The first 12 years have served as a huge learning experience and it’s now time to move forward and seek God’s deeper will for this ministry.
With a new Decade here, the goal for this ministry is to be more bold for Christ.
What exactly does that mean? What will be different in 2020 than any other of the previous 12 years?
The focus is what will be different. In the past, the podcast has been the central part of the ministry. The podcast will continue, but you will hear less interviews and more specific Ed Boston Ministries original material.
There will be a church service each week at 7 pm eastern that will be simulcast on Facebook Live and YouTube.
The service will be designed to be the same as if you were actually in the church building.
A greeting, scripture readings, music, sermon, alter call, offering opportunities and communion on some occasions will be part of the service.
Many believe that we are living in the end times. Again, with that in mind, top focus needs to be on winning lost souls to Christ.
Another priority will be short 4-6 minute YouTube videos on relevant Christian topics. Pastors need to share their take issues that affect our Christian walk and that is what the plan is for these videos.
There will still be interviews, but the focus on them will be much less.
It’s a New Year, a New Decade and now there is a New Focus.
Today is considered Giving Tuesday, and I have never done anything like this before. Everything that’s a part of Ed Boston Ministries – from this website to buying business cards and everything in between is funded by Amy and I, except for about $100 this year.
Something that each person that reads this can do is pray for us individually and our ministry.
