The fair is back in town ! We try to evangelize at this event every year. There was six of us this time: Bro. JJ, Bro. Buddy, Bro. Jonathan, Bro. Lanny and his friend, Bro. John. This is the largest crowd drawer that we go to in this area. There were people everywhere ! When we arrived about 9:30 pm, we took our position across from the main entrance on the corner of the city courthouse. We estimated that we gave out between 800 - 1000 tracts.We used most of our signs. We attempted to preach, but there was a steady flow of traffic. There were many who told us that they were saved, but there was a few of them that we weren't too sure about. Many people claim the name, but play the game ! A lot of people will tell you that they are a Christian, but their lives say otherwise ! One man, who had a bottle of beer in a bag, told me that he went to church every Sunday. We talked to him while his buddy threw his bottle down. I guess he didn't see the police that were about ten to twelve feet from us. These two were escorted from the grounds via police cars !
We stayed till about 12:30 am. I was hoping that we could have done more one on ones. Please pray for those who kept the tracts. We saw many put them in their pockets. I asked several to read their tract after the fair. God's will was done as the Gospel went forth.
I am so thankful for brothers who are willing to go to the streets to share their faith in our faithful Lord. How are you doing in your evangelism efforts ?
God Bless !

On August 22nd, Tony Miano posted on his blog about Professor Grant Horner's Bible Reading System. I have never had a solid plan where I have read all the way through or in a year.
With this plan, I will have read the Bible in 250 days. I am currently on day 31. I am very excited about this!
My wife started this week . Several people from our church have also got on it. Here is the link if you want to look at it for yourself : http://www.onthebox.us/2011/08/professor-horners-bible-reading-system.html
Each day you will read ten chapters a day with ten list to read from. I make sure I get at least ten read everyday. I have doubled up a few times, reading two days worth. This system is very challenging. In Sunday School this weekend, I am going to talk about this plan in our Adult class as I teach on the Word of God. My Bible-reading will never be the same!
