How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.” Isaiah 52:7
Last week we had the privilege of serving at Crossroads Christian Fellowship’s booth at Kauai County Farm Bureau Fair. The booth had free face painting, a drawing for a gift card, and different methods for sharing the gospel with the people who stopped at the booth. As parents and children waited in line for face painting or filled out a survey to enter the drawing, those who were at the booth had the opportunity to share the gospel with those who were willing to listen.
This last week was the first time for many of the students to share the gospel and lead someone to Christ. Everyone was very nervous about going, and many had no idea what they had gotten themselves into, but God used all of them to further his kingdom despite any fears. It is amazing how the gospel is so complex that we will probably never completely grasp it, yet it is so simple that every child at the booth could easily understand it and every student could easily share it without having much practice.
Overall it was a huge blessing for all the students who had a chance to either help with face painting or help in sharing the gospel. Showing God’s love to the children and parents and openly sharing about what Jesus Christ did on the cross for us was an amazing opportunity for each student. For me personally it was a huge blessing listening to the students and our brothers and sisters at the church share the gospel over and over again. – Gracia Stark
