Another 4th come and gone

Another 4th of July has come and gone.

This year we didn't have as many laborers for the gospel as we did last year, but what we lacked in numbers we more than made up for in heart, spirit and prayer.

Here is a great shot of our gang -

We handed out at least 1,216 tracts and talked to several people in just over a couple hours. We had some fantastic conversations that went in several different directions.

We talked to people who believed they were going Heaven because they were good people, we talked to people who were absolutely crazy as a loon (no, really), we talked to people whom the Holy Spirit was working on their consciences and we didn't talk to people who didn't want to be talked to.

I always want to mention how important it is for prayer during an outing. The fellow standing next to me below in the cowboy hat deserves special recognition.

He is a warrior among warriors. He was physically not able to walk the distance we were going to be covering in such a short time span, but he devoted himself to constant prayer the entire time we were witnessing...literally.

For more than two hours this man "held the rope" as we shared the gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost.

I cannot fully express my gratefulness for this....thank you Sir!

Thank you to everyone who came out and gave up some of their evening for the kingdom!

Father I pray for every single person who received a tract and for those whom the gospel was personally shared with. I pray that you draw them to Jesus and give them the faith to repent and trust Christ for their salvation.

Thank you Father for those who came out and shared the everlasting gospel and for the prayer warriors who interceded while we shared.


  1. I praise the Lord for such dedication from you, your team and the praying cowboy. God bless you all.

    Handing out tracts, especially at crowded festive occassions where people are generally in a collective upbeat mood anyway...nothing can be easier and can have such GREAT potential for even just one soul to make it to heaven.

    And glory is being given to God in the very act of passing these little gospel notes around. Good going team!

  2. Thanks to our cowboy prayer warrior !!!!
