Money Giveaway and Stop Light Open-Air

Dan "The Man" Stokely and I started off our day at the Huntington Junior College. We decided to give away some money for trivia. After giving away several dollars Aaron decided to take the GPT. He failed of course...but was very humble and got to hear the Gospel. He said ( with tear filled eyes ) it made sense and he knew he needed to repent of his sins and put his faith in Jesus Christ. I encouraged him to take care of it before he put his head down on his pillow tonight.

One of the interesting things that happened while presenting the Law and the Gospel was that a woman came down the stairs from the school entrance to the public sidewalk where I was standing and asked me to move on down the street. I politely said I would when I was finished speaking with the students. She then disappeared.

Dan spoke with several people after the first quiz. Sean, Marty, and Carl. He had some great conversations with these people and handed out a bunch of tracts. Dan also took this weeks pics and video which may be posted at a later date.

Next we did another trivia money giveaway which worked great. The girls declared it was their turn Donna was up. She took the GPT and failed. She was a very nice lady and after going through the Law and the Gospel knew she needed to repent and put her faith in Jesus Christ. She tried to give the money she had won back to me but I told her to keep it. I also had a brief word with Classy who I've spoke with on several occasions. She said that she liked the way I explained the law and the gospel and that it made sense.

Dan and I headed for the courthouse to do some Stop Light Open-Air. As the cars stopped at the light for the minute and a half or so they got to hear the Law and the Gospel. So did the people in the Federal Building nearby as they stood outside smoking. I got several beeps and words of encouragement. We stayed at the courthouse for about an hour.

Alot people heard the Gospel and God was glorified! Keep Fishin!

July 4th - Independence Day - Ritter Park

The day started out with a bang...out of the gates I went..solo this time to Ritter Park. My goals for today were to honor my word that was given to Project Ezra and to those brothers and sisters around the world in Christ engaged in the public reading of Scripture and to share the gospel with as many as I could. Needless to say I was very nervous and wished I had some back-up. I then remembered that God was my back-up!! I started handing out tracts as people walked or ran around the park. Then I read 1 John publicly. People heard the Word proclaimed as they went by. After that I handed out more tracts around the park. Then I broke out some amplification for the open air time. (My first open air in Huntington, WV.) While doing my first session a guy named Chris walked up, sat and listened to the gospel being proclaimed. After I finished he walked over to me and we talked for quite some time. Chris thought because he went to church that made him a Christian. He understood he had broken God's law ...ect. He was very humble...I encouraged Chris to get right with God. He knew he needed to repent of his sins and put his faith in Jesus Christ. Hopefully I will get an e-mail from him soon. Pray for Chris. I then continued to open air two more times and was encouraged by several people. There was no better way to start the day then sharing the gospel on Independence Day....sharing the truth that God doesnt want people to live their lives independent of Him.....Keep Fishin!!
