County Fair Ministry Part 2

If you missed Part 1, you can read it here.

We’re grateful for opportunities to share Christ and love a whole bunch of children. The County Fair has been a channel to do just that. You should see the joy on kids’ faces after receiving their balloon creation or face paint, the eagerness with which they take the tract—opening it to browse it and telling us they would read it—the patient waiting in line, pouring over the face paint option board, and their words of gratefulness.

Since we’ve been back to the fair four years in a row, parents and children eagerly anticipate finding us. They look for where we normally are. Our desire is that those we come in contact with feel loved and ultimately the gospel is shared through tracts.

Christopher and one of his children came out several nights to witness while walking around the fair. He said the teens were the most open to the gospel.

We’re so grateful for the support of our family in this endeavor.

I think those puffer fish have to be my favorite.
One night, when I walked around at the fair, it seemed I saw a lot of octopus creations. You don’t exactly hide with them. 🙂
How is that for octopus hats?!
Anna often had quite a group around her.

Kids were often very much interested in their balloon creation.
Puppies still melt me.
Anna made farewell heart balloons with a message to some of her frequent flier friends.

children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of
such is the kingdom of God.” Luke 18:16

  1. The girls are so talented! I wish I could bring my nieces and nephews to your booth, but we are a little far away!?
    I am curious about the goodbye balloons, though. Is this the last year for Anna at the County Fair?

  2. So wonderful to know that the Gospel is the forefront of this whole Fair Ministry! I love to see this taking place for the glory of God!!! Thank you for sharing this with all of us! The talent they have is phenomenal. Romans 10:15

  3. No appearance from Lolly the Clown this year?
    Mary’s face painting is getting so good. She’s amazingly talented – she could do it professionally!
