In March, Maureen and David spent some time with some dear fellow brothers and sisters in Hammond, LA. at Southeastern Louisiana University.
Led by David and Kathy Grantham, a group of 12-18 people arrive on campus every Thursday for evangelism of the students from noon until 2 pm.
It was after being invited here that we decided that we were going to mirror them at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, LA.
The ministry at Nicholls has met some snags, but in the Lord’s timing, we are confident that things will work out.
The students at SLU are very receptive to what we are doing there. Several students approached us with the comments that we are not like some of the other groups that come there. They appreciate what we are doing.
On March 17th, we set up a booth at the Lockport, LA. Arts and Crafts show at the Bayou-side Park. Maureen, Toby and I were there all day with some of our dinosaur fossils teaching Creation Science to the people at the show. We were met by MANY people, and besides seeing the dinosaur stuff, we were able to transition to the gospel of Jesus Christ with them.
We had a lot of great conversations. We are not aiming for decisions for Christ, but rather “Repentance towards God, and faith in Jesus Christ.”
The next weekend, March 24th, we had a booth set up at the Southdown Arts and Crafts Show in Houma, LA. Again, we had our dinosaur stuff here for the kids to see and touch, and for us to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with the parents. It is sort of a bait and switch tactic.
We get allowed in the show because we have educational materials to exhibit. We lure the children in, sort of like the Pied Piper. Once we get them to see what we have, it is an easy transition to the gospel. The purpose of why we do this: that people might come away from their ignorance, have their eyes and ears opened, so they may be saved from their sins.
The evangelism team that participated in this event were Maureen, Mike, Brett, Joel and David. Zoe was on his way here from Tickfaw, LA., but got delayed a bit.
