The 2019 GA National Fair is history. Of the over 500,000 people who attended, 4065 found their way to the Wordless Book Tent and heard the Gospel Story. This was no accident! God appointed them to be there according to His will. Some were already believers, but found a new way to witness. Some of those want to be storytellers next year. Some heard the story, but refused the free gift of salvation. Pray that a seed is planted and they will someday accept Christ. Most exciting are the number of salvations. 1022 people accepted Christ!. There were 262 children, 599 teens, and 161 adults who professed. Praise God! A bountiful harvest indeed! The 2020 fair is less than a year away! You can be a part of this exciting work. Contact Mattie Lynn Coonce to learn how.
Here are a few more pictures of the Fair. The first is of Jean Snow, the original "Fair Lady." She is 88 and not too old to share the Gospel! In fact, we had another faithful storyteller this year who is 90! God can use anyone to tell the Story. Next is Missionary Eric with new story teller Lisa sharing the Gospel. She is on fire for this ministry! The next picture is of one of our new Spanish speaking storytellers, Carolina, sharing with a group. We were so blessed to have several Spanish speaking storytellers this year to witness. In previous years, many Spanish speaking people would pass the tent by because we had no one to witness to them in their language. The next two pictures are of believers who came into the tent and received "commisioning books." Developed by Eric, with inputs from many seasoned storytellers, the books provide step-by-step training and a script for using the Wordless Books These folks will use these tools to tell others about Christ! The last picture is of several of our Florida based missionaries leaving on the last day of the Fair. So long until next year!
Here is a pic of the daily tallies and the totals.
