It was great weather for a football game, which means it was also great weather for evangelism.
We arrived at the stadium around 9:00 am and set up just a hundred feet or so from our usual spot from last season, which turned out to be a great spot. Week one we had tried the other end of the stadium but we wanted to move back closer to where we had been preaching for years, so we located a spot that gave us a little shade as well as kept our equipment safe and didn’t interfere with the fans looking to get a glimpse inside the stadium. We had Chike Uzuegbunam, Mike Asher, Scott Phillips and Jamie Smith out today. It was the first time Jamie had been out with us.
Many Gospel tracts went out, the Gospel was shared in one on one conversations and was preached for about 3 hours, finishing shortly after kick off. Mike, myself, Scott and Chike preached and gave away Gospel tracts as Jamie engaged people with conversations and Gospel tracts.
As always, we missed those who couldn’t be with us physically but we know they were praying for us, and we are very grateful for that!
We have an away game this coming week that we will not be traveling to, so we will take advantage of the break for some rest and family time.
Thanks to all the saints who support us in prayer and for those, whom we do not even know, that come by giving us encouraging words while we are out. I’m not sure if they really know what a blessing they are to us! Also I need to thank my wonderful wife, Kim, who spends her Saturdays dropping us off at the stadium and waiting around in Athens to pick us up. Love you bunches!
Here is a link to a video of some of the preaching.
9/1 – vs. Austin Peay Governors
Opening Day at Sanford Stadium.
Rich, Chike, Scott and I were dropped off about 15 minutes from Sanford by my bride, Kim. Bobby has moved away so we had to find a new ride. Thanks to Kim for assuming that role!
Over the off season the stadium has also been renovated with a new scoreboard and a bit of a redesign on the bridge. Since the guardrail where we used to preach has been removed, we decided to try a new spot at the other end of the bridge.
It was a pretty good spot and had trees, which blessed us with shade. Even with that, it was a dry muggy afternoon. I do not remember feeling much of a breeze at any time.
Scott started us off in Ephesians, which I had also planned to preach from, but neither of us knew that. Great minds and all that, right? 🙂
When he began we had a few tech issues because someone (me) forgot to bring the antennas for the new amp. Fortunately, it still works without them, we just had to stay close to the amp.
When Scott was finished, Chike preached, then myself. We were able to preach for two and a half hours and gave away a lot of tracts.
We had some believers give encouraging words and a few foul mouthed folks hurling insults, but the Gospel went out to many people. We are very thankful for the opportunity to share with so many people.
Please pray for these fans and the fans across the nation who heard the Gospel today!
Until All Hear!
