Mission Verse: Jer 1:7But the Lord said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.
Who am I? Instantly the trend of the mind is to say----“Oh well. I have not had any education”; “I did not begin soon enough.” Am I willing to surrender the whole thing, and go out in surrender to God? To go out of the carnal mind into the spiritual?----“fools for Christ’s sake”?
(Oswald Chambers- Daily Thoughts for Disciples). Our Lord is a wonderful Savior. Why would we not want to tell others about Him? After all He wonderfully saved us from the depths of hell. All men must be saved the same way, by the blood of Jesus Christ.
There is no other venue that we have seen that reaches as many for the Lord. There is no greater thing that we can do with our life. There is no greater joy than watching the Holy Spirit work in the lives of others and a miracle being performed right before our eyes. Many live their whole life and never see the salvation of the Lord occurring in another’s life. What an awesome privilege it is to be able to lead someone to the Lord using the Word of God. Knowing that it is none of us, but all of God.
We are so humbled to be a part of this ministry. The opportunity to work with so many that love the Lord and have a burden for the lost. So many Godly people that give up their homes and leave their families to join together to go to state and local county fairs and festivals to share the good news of Jesus Christ. Are they suffering for the Lord? No, they are doing exactly what the Lord would have us all do. The Lord’s word says in I Cor 9:16 "For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!"
We have professionals from all walks of life, including many former pastors, as a part of this ministry. Most of all we have laymen who have ....."determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ and Him crucified." (I Cor 2:2) The Lord is not looking for faithfulness to retirement, but faithfulness till death.
Do people get saved at the fair? Yes they do and we are so thankful. Remember John 6:37..... "and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out."
