Greetings Pastors and Spouses, Prayer Partners and Friends;
This week we started doing some preliminary work on our taxes. One of the things we need to do for our taxes is to calculate the ministry related miles we drive each year. As we have stated at the end of the emailing for the past few months, we have driven over 500,000 miles in ministry these past 21 years. That's enough miles to have driven around the world 20 times (the earth is approximately 25,000 miles around). Also we could have driven to the moon and almost back to earth (we would be 22,000 miles short of earth on our way back). We are presently raising funds to get our next car as the present car now has over 187,000 miles. For more information read the paragraph at the end of the emailing.
Now let me tell you about last Sunday! What a great day!
CRAWFORDVILLE, FL - This past Sunday morning and evening, Beth and I ministered at Ivan Assembly of God in Crawfordville, FL (located about 20 miles south of Tallahassee, FL); pastored by Dan and Gloria Cooksey. This was our first time to minister at Ivan Assembly and we were asked to minister on the Holy Spirit. In each service we preached on the baptism in the Holy Spirit and in each service there were people either baptized in the Holy Spirit or refilled with the Holy Spirit. Also, in each service there were people who responded to the first altar call to either commit their life to Christ, recommit their life to Christ or to make things right with God. In each service people also responded to the altar calls desiring God's work to be furthered in their lives. It was a great day at a great church as people were filled, refilled, revived, refreshed and renewed! We thank God for what He did and we thank you for praying! Be sure to read in the CLOSING THOUGHTS how we ended up coming to Crawfordville and the extra blessing they were to us.
SOPERTON, GA - This coming Sunday through Wednesday, Beth and I will be ministering at Trinity Assembly of God in Soperton, GA (located about 75 miles southeast of Macon, GA); pastored by Larry Hammock. This will be our fourth time to minister at Trinity Assembly but the first time since the Hammock's became pastors. We have been asked to minister on the Holy Spirit in this series of services. Please join us in praying that God will pour out His Holy Spirit. We need Him!
SCHEDULING - Since last week's emailing we have scheduled services in Jump River, WI; Chiefland, FL and Oconto, WI. Please continue to pray that the doors will continue to open wherever God would want us to minister.
SCHEDULE – If you would like to see our schedule through the end of May 2020 click here.
INFO AFTER CLOSING THOUGHTS - At the very end of the emailing please read the paragraphs about - MINISTRY CAR FUNDRAISER, BILL'S BOOKS, GOODSEARCH and FACEBOOK.
CLOSING THOUGHTS - We hear amazing testimonies of how God works to schedule us to come to churches. Our going to Crawfordville is such a testimony with an amazing extra blessing. Pastor Cooksey had received our mailing and as a result he signed up to receive our weekly emailing. After receiving and reading the emailing for several months, a couple of weeks ago he decided to contact us for services. He noticed we would be coming through the Crawfordville area on our way back from Pensacola a couple of weeks ago and asked if we could meet for breakfast, being we had never met before. He got us a nice motel room and we met him and his wife for breakfast. Meanwhile, on our way to Crawfordville, our car had begun to make a "whirring" sound from the front of the car. The car ran great but from working on cars I thought it probably was a wheel bearing going bad. After breakfast I asked Pastor Cooksey if he knew of a garage in town that could check it out. He said, "We have a man in our church that fixes cars". He called him and the man said bring the car over. He checked it over and it was the left front wheel bearing going bad. He installed a new wheel bearing for a very reasonable rate and a couple hours later we were on the road. The following weekend (last weekend) we drove back up to Crawfordville for the services. It was amazing how God orchestrated all of this! That's the kind of God you and I serve through Jesus!
Please join us in praying that God will pour out His Holy Spirit this coming Sunday through Wednesday in Soperton, GA!
Together in His Service with You,
Bill & Beth
MINISTRY CAR FUNDRAISER - We are now in our 22nd year of traveling as evangelists. Over the past 21 years we have driven over half of million miles in ministry travel, have spent over $50,000 in gas for ministry travel and have gone through three cars and almost our fourth car (we buy a low mileage used car and drive the car up to 200,000 miles and then start to look for another car and the "used-up ministry car" then becomes my "around town car"). Our present ministry car has 185,000 miles so later this year we will again be shopping for another car for ministry travel. This year we will be raising funds for our next ministry car. If you would like to donate to our "car fund" using your credit card you can go to our website at and click on the "donate" icon. It's simple, safe and secure. If you would prefer to donate using a check - please make the check out to "Fresh Fire Ministries", mark it "car fund", and send it to: Fresh Fire Ministries, P.O. Box 372, Whitewater, WI 53190.

People have been ordering them and buying them in our services! The paperback versions are available for $12.99 at Amazon and the eBook versions on Kindle are available for $3.99. You can order either book by clicking here. [The third book, 'Helping Others Receive the Gift' is a compilation with several other authors published in 2008.] If you enjoy the books, go to Amazon and write reviews. The reviews will inspire others to read the books.
GOODSEARCH – Each time you make a search using GoodSearch as your search engine and have selected us as the receiving non-profit organization, we get a donation to our ministry. The easiest way to remember to use GoodSearch as your search engine is to make it your home page. If you are interested, click here. Search for 'Bill Juoni Fresh Fire Ministries', click, and follow the instructions. If you have any questions, please feel free to either email us or call us.
FACEBOOK – Each week Beth continues to make new friends on Facebook. If you are new to our emailing and would like to connect with her on Facebook, create an account, and make a friend request to “Beth Ann Murray Juoni”. It's been incredible to see the people she has connected with from across the country and even overseas. We have found former parishioners, pastor friends, evangelist friends and many new friends.
