Sharing Christ: Part 3, Jesse’s Thoughts

Jesse’s Thoughts: I enjoyed the opportunity to go to the fair and witness last week. I spent most of the time walking through the carnival area looking for a chance to give a tract to and speak with young people. A number of the groups were interested in talking, and we had enjoyable conversations as a result. There were some who participated politely and then others who moved on. I appreciated every young person who took the time to talk about their eternal destiny, and I pray that the Lord might use the discussions to bring them to Him.

One of guys that I talked with and remember in particular was at the previous fair that we had gone to and had been part of a group of guys that I engaged with at that point. This time, though, he was with a different friend and as we were starting into a discussion about what he thought, he encouraged me to take his friend through the Good Person Test. His friend was extremely interested and thoughtful about what would happen to him after he died. The Lord also blessed us with nice weather that night which made for a great time altogether.

Serving Jesus,
Jesse

Sharing Christ: Part 1, Sarah’s Thoughts

Last night, some of our family (not everyone was available) went to the county fair. The purpose was to engage people in conversation and share Jesus.

We decided to split the report and pictures into several posts, so you’ll hear from a few of us. So stay tuned!

Sarah’s Thoughts: At first, I took pictures, but then I decided it was time to take the plunge. I spotted two teenage girls eating hot dogs, and I asked them if they’d like to take a survey. They readily agreed. I said if they got eight of the Ten Commandments right, they’d get $5. Clearly, they liked that idea. It’s a very simple way to witness.

On my clipboard, I had a little sheet that listed the Ten Commandments, and I checked them off as people said them. I also told them they didn’t need to give them word perfect–just the concept. I also didn’t set a time limit.

With groups of teenagers, you can get some real synergy going, as they all work together, discuss, and try to come up with the commandments. You can tell they like it, because of the way they interacted with me and asked me to tell them how many they had gotten or to read off the ones they had. They were very engaged. Afterward, I gave them a Trillion Dollar bill tract or Are You a Good Person? tract. One group of girls I had shared with and had earned their $5, stopped to talk later on. They said the $5 had been perfect because they had been headed back for $5 more for their ride!

DSC_7546I loved sharing Jesus last night. I’ll admit at first, it took me out of my comfort zone to walk up to someone, but as soon I took that step, it was awesome. It gave people opportunities to think about eternity. It’s forever.

The girl behind our trip last night—my sister, Mary. She has such a heart for sharing Jesus: it has been an example to me. You should see her face glow, and it’s inspired me. Sharing Jesus through the Ten Commandment survey, followed by however the Spirit prompts, is so easy. Just go equipped with $5 bills. You’ll need them!

Love,
Sarah
