I woke up this morning thinking that there wont be too many people at Marshall today because finals are over. We drove through downtown looking around and didn't see too much activity. We decided to just park and check it out on foot. As soon as we got out of the truck, put our quarters in the meter people were just coming from the right and the left. Dan and I first spoke with Matthew who claimed he believed in a goddess and would be reincarnated. He admitted to breaking Gods Law...but in the same breath denied Him. He said he would be going to hell anyway since he led an alernative lifestyle. We stayed our course on the Law with compassion for Matthew but in the end after speaking with us for about 10 minutes threw the tract back at us and walked away. Please pray for Matthew.
Dan conversed with Chris who was on his smoke break. Dan would come to find out the Chris had a patchwork theology. He took what he liked from each different religion and made his own. We told him that was idolatry..making a god in your own image. His co-workers called him in.......He took two Obama Millions. Pray for Chris.
We made our way towards the Big Sandy Arena and spoke with Tara and her two friends. It felt like a mini-open air. They were very receptive to going through the Law and the Gospel. Tara's whole demeanor changed going through the Law then the Gospel. "I understood and it made sense", she said!!! In fact her two friends were shaking their heads and agreeing that they too understood and thought it made sense. Tara and her friends said they would consider what we talked about. They thanked me for sharing the gospel with them. Praise God and pray for Tara and her friends.
Our last conversation took place in front of Huntington Community College. Spoke with Tiffany, Classy, and another young man. Mini open-air. Two of them admitted if they died right now they would go to hell. All three people were very receptive to the Law and the Gospel. They all understood what they heard. Tiffany and I spoke for several minutes. She asked if I knew of a good church that she and her son could go to. I gave her the name of my church and I hope she walks through the doors on the days to come. Please pray for Tiffany, Classy and the young man. All in all on a day when I thought not much was gonna happen (because of most of the college kids going home)...God had other plans and He gave us a wonderful day to proclaim the story of redemption and forgiveness to a lost world. Its all for His glory....Keep Fishin.
