Fishing at the Arizona State Fair!!!

Yesterday me, my Dad, Mom, Isaac, and my cousin Mariah went to the AZ State Fair. And as usual, we took lots and lots of tracts. We had a really awesome time just handing out tracts and talking to people.

This is Ron the Atheist. My dad talked to him for about 20 minutes. About 30 minutes later we ran into him again, and dad talked to him again!

When we went to Mill Avenue last week, it seemed like the people wouldn't really take the tracts. But not so at the fair! The people were really excited about getting tracts and we even had people coming up to us and asking for more!!

At one point we went on the Sky Ride (it is like a ski lift) and we dropped Million Dollar Bills so that they were falling from the sky. It was so fun to watch the people pick them up and even a couple of people running after them! This was us when we first got on the Sky Ride to drop tracts from the sky:

We had so much fun that we decided to do it again. But this time, when we were getting on the ride, the guy running it said, "I don't think you guys should drop those anymore." His name was Jason. My dad had already talked to him, and he claimed to be a christian. This picture of Jason was taken before he told us to stop dropping MBD's from the Sky Ride:

My dad and mom had conversations with about five other people, none of which were repentant or anything like that, but it was still really awesome. We had a great time, and I can't wait for next year's State Fair!

The Crash Course and Mill Avenue

Last Saturday was our Crash Course at our church. I realize that my dad and my brother have already posted on their own blogs about Saturday, but I still want to post on my own. So it went really good. The Crash Course was great, and I made it all the way through even though I was really hungry by the end!!! :) So afterwards there were nineteen of us, not including the leaders that came from Phoenix to help my dad, that went to Mill Ave. Thankfully, we had no problems on the way down and made it there safely. When we got there we split up into groups of three or four and started walking around. I was with my Dad, my Mom, and my brother, Isaac. We started handing out tracts as soon as we got there, but the people just didn't want them. We had very few people who take them. Even the MBD's were not grabbing their attention. We found that most of them had already gotten one. Anyway, the first person my Dad talked to was a street kid named Ghost. Dad talked to him for probably forty-five minutes and didn't really get anywhere. He said that he hung around Mill Ave. a lot and I think some other people had already talked to him in past weeks. He was really smart and knew the Bible better than most professing Christians do.
Then we talked to a black lady named Deedra, and her male friend Lexis. Deedra said she was a Christian, but said that Lexis was the one that we should be talking to. So Dad talked to Lexis and found that he had been raised in a Christian home, but was not walking with the Lord. Dad gave him the Law and he seemed convicted. Then Dad gave him the Gospel and finally ended up saying, "Lexis, is there anything that is stopping you from getting right with God?" And Lexis said, "No." So Dad encouraged him to read his Bible and told him to get right with God before he went to bed that night. Dad also gave him his phone number, but as far as I know Lexis hasn't called.
So we had a couple of good experiences, but the most encouraging event of the night happened to my mom's friend Donna. Her leader was named Dave. I guess what happened was this: Donna and her husband Joe were talking to some people and Dave kinda strayed away from their group and was talking to another guy. When Dave finished, he came up to Donna and Joe and said, "That guys seemed really convicted." So they started walking along when that same guy came running up behind them, calling Dave's name. When he caught up with them he said, "Dave, what do I do to repent?" Isn't that awesome??!!! So Dave and Donna and Joe prayed for him and then he prayed himself. Dave told us later that his prayer was really contrite and repentant. Isn't that awesome???!!! It just makes me want to get out and witness more!!

Evangelizing and Me

Four months ago I did not care about evangelizing. I was familiar with the Way of the Master and I knew that unsaved people would go to Hell for eternity, but to be honest with you, it didn't concern me. It wasn't me going to Hell, so I didn't care.
Then my Dad went to the Ambassador's Academy. I was expecting him to say when he came home that it was great, he had fun, etc. But he didn't. He was totally changed. When he told us about it he couldn't stop crying. It was amazing to see how broken he was before God and I could just tell that he was more in love with the Lord than ever before. It seemed like over a period of 3 days he had suddenly grown a heart for the lost and a greater love for Jesus.
It was like it was contagious. My whole family was suddenly energized by the thought of sharing our faith. And it didn't stop at our immediate family but wore off onto my cousins and many in our church. It was so cool to see everyone so on fire for God. Now my best friends are asking us, "Are you guys going to go pass out tracts toady? Can we come with you?" It is so cool. And now, to build an evangelism team, my dad is having a WOTM crash course at our church. Afterwards a bunch of people from my church are going with us to Mill Avenue to evangelize.
I just praise God for the change in our church and in our own lives. It is so exciting to tell lost people about Jesus!
