Catch The Vision! Share the Good News!
The 2023 GA National Fair (GNF) Mission Field will be ripe for the harvest in October! Time to prepare!
Over 3900 people heard the Gospel Story at the 2022 Georgia National Fair Wordless Book Tent Ministry and 929 made professions of faith! The 2022 harvest was smaller than some previous years, perhaps because of COVID fears or the economy. But God did a mighty work and called people to Salvation even still. We must realize and be reminded that our time to witness to those who are lost is becoming shorter each passing year. Our team is now preparing for the 2023 fair. We will soon be doing trainings, arranging for tent missionary workers to tell the Story, and working with local businesses to provide critical support. You can be an integral part of this ministry! You can use your voice to execute the Lord's command to spread His Gospel to the "ends of the earth." Jesus will come as a thief in the night. No one knows the hour except the Father. Let us be found doing work for His Kingdom when He comes!
How does the Fair Ministry Tent Work?
The 2023 Georgia National Fair is October 5th-15th. Think of it as a mission trip to your own community! To effectively equip the Wordless Book Tent mission field each year, we need missionaries to man the storytelling stations. It normally looks like this:
Eight Storyteller Stations inside the tent with three ministry mission periods per a day = 24 missionaries needed per day. For the ten full days of the GNF, that means 240 missionaries are required! Of course, some missionaries may want to do multiple mission periods. That's great!
Out front, we also have people to invite the mission field (fair attendees) inside the tent. We use two to three mission workers there for each mission period; another 40-60 missionaries needed!
Those numbers include Spanish speaking missionaries. We usually need three per day for a total of 30 missionaries for the fair duration. In addition, we use at least one worker out front to invite for each mission period or about three per day. Usually the weekends are the biggest need for Spanish workers. Its hard to know when is the best time, so we must be ready all the time!
As you can see, the Wordless Book Tent Ministry is a huge production. The Fair Lady is simply the coordinator. For the mission to be successful, God wants to use people who are concerned for the lost of this world to share the Gospel. If you are looking for a way to follow Jesus and experience what it is like to be a missionary in the field, please sign up to work the Wordless Book Tent. The training is free; however, you need to contact me to get a training set up. Check on this site for trainings already scheduled. Training is offered year round except during the GNF mission period.
Have You Heard the Story?
Well, have you? If you've been to the Georgia State Fair recently, chances are you have. Once a year, a modest tent is set up to accomplish a big purpose. It is filled with people just like you ready to tell The Story. So, what exactly is it? "The Story," as we call it, is much more than just a story. It is the Way, It is the Truth, and It is the Life (John 14:6). It is the reason we are here on Earth and the most important thing can do. We are talking about God, the Creator, and His plan of salvation for mankind. (John 3:16). If you are someone who wants to know "The Story," you can read all about it. If you are someone looking to get involved in this mission opportunity, browse around and see how you can get involved!
