The really hot days are past and folks are coming to the Fair in droves! Nearly 3000 people have heard the Wordless Book Story and 759 have accepted Christ as their Savior! Just three days to go! Please continue to pray for the Fair and the workers that the work would continue to be blessed. Below are some pictures from the Fair. The first is of a daughter of a Storyteller leading her friend to Christ. What a friend! Look how excited she is! Next is a young believer, also excited about just trusting Christ. The third picture is of a very tired missionary storyteller. There is some rest for the weary when there are other fresh storytellers. These missionary storytellers come from long distances, some using vacation time, to work the long hours (0900AM-1000PM) every day in the Fair tent! The last picture is of a food donation from Sonny's BBQ, one of several local eateries that support the ministry at the Fair. many thanks to them and the others for their support. All of these wonderful folks will be recognized in a future post and I encourage you to support them with your patronage as a thank you for their support.
431 people have accepted Christ as their Savior and there are six more days of the Fair to go! Below is a picture of the "original" Fair Lady, Mrs. Jean Snow. Unable to come for the past few years, she is back this year and still on fire to share the Gospel with a lost world. Also below is our newest storyteller, Antoinette. Bilingual, she is able to witness in English and Spanish. What a blessing!
So far, 1037 have heard the Gospel at the Wordless Book Tent Ministry. 278 of those made professions of faith. Praise God! Please pray that more would come into the tent and hear God's Word. Also pray for strength for the workers. The days are long and hot!
The GA National Fair started Oct 3 and the last two days have been scorchers. But people are hearing the Gospel and receiving Christ. You can be a part of this Gospel outreach too! The days will be cooler now and the harvest is great. We need workers for the harvest. Contact Mattie Lynn Coonce at 478-952-2745 if YOU would like to tell others about Christ at the Fair. Below is a picture of the tent just before the gates opened Thursday.

Big, big kudos to Lamar Colman for the donation of these wonderful bags to support the ministry operation. Also, many thanks for your generous financial support for the rental space at the fair. Without your support, the Wordless Book tent ministry may have not happened 2019. Thank you for these wonderful blessings!
Another big praise is the support of the Little Red Book Ministry in Spencerport, NY. These wonderful folks are dedicated supporters who supply our fantastic Wordless Book bracelets each year. Thank you SO much to Michele Feathers and her team for your AMAZING donation! I PRAY GOD WILL BLESS THE WORKS OF YOUR HANDS. I pray the ones who receive these bracelets will use them to GO and tell others the plan of salvation using the color beads!

It is not too late to sign up OR just show up! If you want to schedule a separate training for your group, please use the sign-up under the Wordless Book Training tab above.
The GA National Fair tent ministry trailer is being readied for the upcoming fair. It has been pulled from storage and the supplies are being inventoried, checked, and replenished. The trailer will be a fixture in my driveway until it is moved to the Fairgrounds in late September. It holds the tent frame, Wordless Book stations, lights, and all sorts of supplies needed to keep the tent running for the Fair. What it doesn't have is YOU! We need you to tell the Story! Please consider coming out and telling others about Christ.
Key to the success of the GA National Fair Ministry is prayer! Please join me in prayer for the Fair Ministry. Here are some specific items you can be praying for to prepare for the spiritual battle as prayer warriors.
1. Foremost, pray for the Lord of the harvest to send laborers to the field. We must have storytellers to tell the Gospel Story. If you have done it before, please sign up for a shift (or two, or three). If you haven't done it before, you're missing out on one of the great blessings as a Christian; leading someone to Christ. Trainings are available to help you get comfortable sharing the Gospel to others. Pray for these trainings that they would be fruitful. You can sign up for trainings and shifts at the Fair on this site!
2. Next, pray for those God has appointed to visit the Wordless Book Tent that they may hear and respond to the Gospel.
3. Pray for our core ministry team which will be traveling from Wisconsin, Kentucky, Florida, Texas, and across Georgia that they will have safe travels and be healthy for the duration. Pray for my husband and myself as we host these missionaries in our home that we would have strength and resources to accommodate them.
4. Pray for Bible donations and/or funds to purchase them. Additionally, pray that funds will be donated to help buy Fair admission tickets to help defray the cost of getting the missionaries in the Fair each day.
Thank you for your support in reaching others for Christ!
We are all part of the church, meeting in different buildings, but all brothers and sisters doing God's work. As such, we share and support each other. We provided 1000 Spanish language tracts, 1000 Wordless Book bracelets, Wordless Books themselves, and other supplies to support this mission team to Honduras. You can support this missionary effort as well by offering your prayers for the team for safety and effectiveness. Pray that many hear and come to Christ.
