It was a rare thing to find him without a smile and without his Bible or a tract to give out. He gave of his time and gave to others.  As seen in the picture, above left, he often stopped the bus to tell others of God’s love; as he did when he saw these children. His heart of compassion and love, compelled him to go; just like Jesus, he was always showing the Father’s heart toward  everyone he met.

He brought the sound system that was used for this event and at the same time, he was sharing the love of God, during set up and break down! Several souls came to know the Lord as Saviour!

When it got dark, he played the video of Father’s Love Letter, on the big screen, for the crowd that remained, as seen below.

At Super March for Jesus, the sound system was used to assemble the crowd for prayer before and after the Super March for Jesus. The same week was Super Bowl, where Bryan parked the bus in the midst of the crowd, along the river and shared the love of God with everyone he met, as the music played and the Gospel was preached.

Bryan saw the need and came to fill it with himself and The Jesus Bus; it becomes the sound system for a local church, that was burnt to the ground and now having to meet in a tent. Another outreach, below, giving out school supplies with other ministers…

And at the Baseball Stadium downtown for National Day of Prayer, below, to the right.   Bryan went from neighborhood to neighborhood, across denominational lines, racial lines and economic/social barriers to share the love of God…If he could not make it himself, he sent others to take his place, so that the love of God continued to flow into highways and byways of The First Coast.
