Excitement of Last Sunday

An estimated 10,000+ people gathered downtown to watch the St Patrick’s parade. Simultaneously, about thirty believers — ages four to sixty-five — gathered to share the gospel with the crowds!

It was freezing out, and even with all of our layers we were still COLD! But it was worth it. [smile]

Here’s a little glimpse of what happened.

A highlight for me was seeing the enthusiasm in the younger ones. It makes an impact to be a part of multiple witnessing conversations and realize how many people simply don’t know the gospel! But they were encouraged by how interested people were, and they saw that the Lord was able to use them at their young age. Now they are excited to come witnessing again next time.

Thank you to everyone at our church who helped fold tracts, and to Stephen and Andrew who captured all the video footage. Also thank you to Stephen who put this clip together.

Your God has commanded your strength; Show Yourself strong, O God, who have acted on our behalf (Psalm 68:28).

“I am ready [to give] even my life without hesitation; and most willingly for His name. And I choose to devote it to him even unto death, if God grant it to me.” – St Patrick

  1. Love it! How exciting! It’s so neat to see God at work! Watching the video reminds me of our time on the Louisville waterfront with you last summer. What a treat! Thank you for your encouragement then and now. I still have a lot to learn, but God has really used you, Grace, to stretch me in this area, and I am so grateful! 🙂

  2. It’s so neat to see a Saint Patrick’s Day outreach in action. Thanks so much for sharing!
    With a smile,

    P.S. Hats off to Stephen and Andrew! Great job on the video!

  3. Praise the Lord! What a wonderful testimony and example to both the lost and believers! I am so encouraged by this video – it put a smile on my face, and joy in my heart. 🙂 We did the same thing at the Saint Patrick’s day parade in Saint Paul Mn. It’s so great to see fellow laborers (even though separated by quite a few miles), working with us as a team! I plan on uploading a video of our St. Patrick’s day adventure, soon. Would it be okay if I post a link to it on here when I finish it? I’m so happy to see all the young kids you had in your group that are learning at an early age to be ambassadors for Christ. 🙂

  4. Loved the post, and the video 🙂 awesome! so great to see the enthusiastic responses of the young people you all witnessed to and how much the younger ones liked handing the tracts out! such a neat video, appreciated!

  5. Thank you so much for this video! It was so neat seeing the people so receptive of the Gospel! 🙂 I think I’ll have to look into this for our St Patricks parade next year….

  6. Grace, here is the link to our Saint Patrick’s Day Parade Witnessing video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dpsm5BNlVs0
    I had a lot of difficulties uploading it, and the final upload looks a little funny because the video is all stretched out…but nevertheless, you can see excitement of the day, and hopefully it will be an encouragement to you! 🙂 Also, here is the link to the video of last year’s parade (it turned out a little better! :-))
