Mary’s Thoughts: I love opportunities to share Jesus. There’s no better witnessing opportunity than when a group of people are gathered together. Christopher has been an inspiration to me in sharing Christ. Although he’s not in these pictures, we had a great time going to another fair and sharing together a couple of weeks ago.
I try to look for other teens and ask them if they can name 8 of the Ten Commandments. It’s really wonderful to get the synergy going as they try to come up with the Ten Commandments. Often they call out to their friends for help.
I then take them through the “good person” test. It’s really amazing to watch their faces as the reality of their sin and their inability to get to heaven without Jesus hits them. Not everything was so easy, though, because there were a lot who weren’t at all interested. It took persistence to find receptive groups.
Sometimes I would make a child a balloon. I either gave them Living Waters’ “Hey Kids” tract (now renamed Albert Brainstein) or a trillion dollar bill tract. What’s really encouraging are the children who help giving out the tracts. I had a lot come back asking for more saying they wanted to give them to friends.
These times are exciting. Who knows what God’s plan is with those conversations!
“When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die;
and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest
to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to
save his life; the same wicked man shall die
in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.”
