According to an email I received from Pastor Steven L Anderson, that's what happened to him:
Unfortunately, my fire alarm business has taken another huge hit because of my preaching. In the midst of persecution last September, our largest customer canceled all of our contracts, and I had to lay off all of my employees. Now, my other large customer that was keeping the company afloat has apparently decided to stop doing business with me because they found out "who I am."I think it's a blessing. Pastor Anderson can now preach the gospel in its fullness, without self-censorship.
Maybe this is God showing me that it is time to go full time as pastor since I keep losing business due to my preaching and all of the media/internet attacks on our church. I have some extra money that I have earned over the last few months that I can support my family on temporarily since at this point the church cannot afford to pay me a full time salary. During that time, I plan to work harder than ever w i n n i n g souls and reaching people, and pray that the church will grow to the point where I can continue to serve God full time.
Please pray for me and for our church during this time of possible transition. The good thing is that I will be w i n n i n g more souls than ever since that will be my full time job! Please pray that the church will grow and that the finances will be there for me to continue doing so and still be able to support my family of 7 (soon to be 8!).
God bless you all!
