9/1 – vs. Cal Poly
When I got to the evangelism spot many people were already leaving the game. The NDSU Bison had a huge lead by halftime and this led to many people leaving the game early. During the third and 4th quarter I had a very constant flow of foot traffic of a lot of NDSU students and some fans.
I was able to hand out a decent amount of tracts at the beginning of the outreach. During the rest of the outreach the people tended to not take tracts. When people didn’t take tracts I reminded people many times during the outreach was that their eternity was important, quoted Hebrews 9:27, and quoted the Romans 3 verse that talks about no one is good not even one. I find that doing any of those three things can be a means that the Holy Spirit convicts them of their apathy toward the gospel. In those several brief conversations with people who didn’t take tracts I noticed that many of them did hear what I was saying to them.
There were a wide range of reactions that I saw from the students and fans during the outreach. There were at least a few people who were very thankful that the gospel was being proclaimed. I don’t say that in a prideful sense but there were people who thanked me for sharing the gospel. The Lord used my presence there to encourage believers to share the gospel. Also there were a couple of Muslim students who took tracts and were reading them. At the same time there was a trend of spiritual apathy amongst a fair amount of the people. At least some of the apathetic people knew that I’ve been evangelizing outside the game many times. There were a couple of students who were trying to distract me while I was handing out tracts to people. Even though they tried to distract me the gospel went forth.
After the game was over I got on my bucket and preached from parts of Luke 12 and 13. As I was preaching many people walked by and heard the law and the gospel. I used those texts because there was a parallel between the gospel apathetic crowds I had and the apathy in the crowds that were around Jesus. I also noticed that several people across the street from me were listening to the preaching as they were walking back to campus. After I was finished preaching I handed out some more tracts to people. By the time the foot traffic had died down I was hoping I could try to do my usual phase 2 of outreach. Phase 2 consists of stoplight preaching to the people in their vehicles at a nearby stoplight. Unfortunately the car traffic was almost nonexistent so I wasn’t able to do phase 2.
After I was done preaching I handed out some tracts to fans and I was able to talk to a fan named Brad. Brad recognized me from an outreach I did at the FCS championship game in Frisco, Texas earlier this year. He and I talked for a few minutes about the gospel and the reasons for doing street outreach. From what I could tell in our conversation he was a believer in Jesus Christ. We mutually encouraged each other during our conversation and I gave him a tract so he could share the gospel with people.
