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!!
