Mardi Gras Parade Outreach Report - Feb. 18, 2016

We had a great time at the Mardi Gras Parade outreach in Monroe, La. Christy, Chip, and Chris, who had never done an event like this, came with us. They were encouraged as they watched us for a while and gave out tracts with us. Bro. Marshall, Bro. Charles and my son Braylyn were there, too. I would guess that we gave out around 1200 or more tracts as we went through the crowds. My best conversation was with DeShawn, a young man he said that he didn't know where he was going when he died. I asked him to think about our conversation. I talked with several who had been drinking. Carl quoted a bible verse and said that he was raised up knowing about church, but didn't go to church. Reece took Seinfeld millions from us and gave them to people passing by. He said that he only drinks on his birthday and Mardi Gras, "but other than that, the Lord is my savior." Please pray for the seeds that were planted!

Mardi Gras Parade Outreach - Feb. 18, 2017

Our next big event will be this Saturday in Monroe. We have done this outreach for the last several years, giving out nearly 2000 tracts each time. We aim to get more out this year. We are praying for a larger team. Two friends who have never been out like this will be joining us. They are involved in jail ministry and one on one witnessing. Also, the youth from Brother Charles' church may be coming. Please pray that the seeds that will be planted will produce fruit!
