Every year Hurricane, WV has a city wide yard sale. Our church decided to use that time as as means to get the gospel out to the community. We also used it as a time to sell some things and donate all the money earned to the daughter of one of our members who will be going to East Asia. Gerald and I hit the streets on this day and had several great conversations and were able to pass out hundreds of tracts. Praisethe Lord!!

Bill and I went to Ritter Park. I began with our "Project Ezra' scripture reading of Jeremiah 7 and then continued sharing the Law and the Gospel. Bill got up to do his open-air and we had a group of people come and sit down and listen to him as they ate their lunch. Several people were handed tracts and heard the gospel. Then we headed into Downtown and were able to hand out several tracts. One person said "He wasn't sure he was going to die"...he didn't want to talk about what happens to you after you die....he just fled..pray for him. We did have the joy to meet two Chinese guys who upon talking to them and offering them a Chinese Bible they told us they were Christians. Their faces just lit up with joy talking about Jesus. They told us how they read their Bibles everyday and love His Word. They attend a nearby church. Bill and I couldn't recall meeting American Christians on our fishing trips that were as joyful as those two guys and love to talk about Jesus! Praise the Lord!! Keep Fishin!!

I can't believe it been one year since last years Rib Fest. This year was about the same as last year. I had the opportunity to hit the Rib Fest with my friend Kenny Taylor who is also my pastor. He leads by example and has been a great encouragement to me. Kenny has a genuine heart for the lost. He schedules other evangelistic outreaches in the community. We had a great time and were able to share the gospel with many. We pray that they would come to repentance and faith in the Savior.
