Back in June we had our booth at the Vermont Dairy Festival in Enosburg Falls, VT. We spoke with about 80 people.
Some were concerned about dying. Another, a former christian, is now an atheist.
Please pray that the people we talked to read the tracts, and find or continue with a Bible study.
We gave several people the write-up “How to Find Help in the Bible” written by Pastor Scott Harris.
I have that info in a word document and a PDF file, so contact me if you would like it in that format.
We also talked at length to two Jehovah Witnesses and used the info from “The Deity of Christ”, also by Pastor Scott Harris.
One of the two Jehovah Witness admitted that we had a point about Jesus accepting worship as a god.
We also used the info from the “The Humanity of Christ”, also by Pastor Scott Harris.
Several local christians we met at the fair helped us make a list of local pastors and churches. Thank you.
We gave that list out to visitors who were looking for a local church to attend.
One of the other groups doing outreach at the fair is called the “Fellowship of Christian Farmers.”
They hand out free walking sticks with the “wordless book”, in bead form on the handle. Their web site is http://www.fcfi.org
Other groups were handing out bibles and one was supporting the pro-life cause.
A town church handed out tracts on the parade route and had a booth with “The 3 Things God has never seen”.
They had several baptism’s that Sunday, so praise God that the local churches are growing.
The festival is held in the center of town with about 40 vendors and a midway in the adjacent high school parking lot.
There was a Sunday service held on the fair grounds by the town church.
The pastor/speaker was also the ventriloquist act hired to perform at the fair.
He goes to fairs in the summer and incorporates biblical outreach in his ventriloquist act.
He used all his props from his fair act during his Sunday service.
So “the gospel message was delivered by a dummy”, a line he used in his sermon.
I am planning to post church info, outreach books, tracts, sermons, etc on “Resource” pages on our web site.
Please send the links to your church and/or your web pages with outreach/apologetics/bible help information, if you want us to list them.
The fairs we are attending or hope to attend this year are listed below.
Please drop in to see us again if you attend any of these fairs. If you know of a good fair for outreach, let us know.
If you want to join us at one of the fairs and help out, let us know so we can send you some training information.
Please forward this newsletter to anyone that is interested in doing outreach.
