Ever since I read about the All Nations College Campout I've been SO excited! Now that I’ve finished my evangelism course I can’t wait to try out all of the techniques I’ve learned on all of the idolaters and sinners I’ll find there. I leave on Friday after lunch, and it’s over after a peace service on Sunday.
Back at last! It was such an awesome time! The first thing I did when I got there was to find the best spot to set up my tent-you know, near the faucet and the restrooms. I found one but someone else wanted it too. She looked like she was from India, so I stood my ground. After all, I knew God would want me to have the best place so that I was blessed as His child. After I set up my tent I chased her down and asked her all about her beliefs. She was setting up her tent in an OK spot, so I talked while she worked. Turns out she was Hindu; so I’m sure I impressed her with everything I’d learned about Hinduism. I got her on every argument she had, so now I’m going to pray for her to see the light and really think about how wrong she is. I can’t remember her name now; I hope that doesn’t matter when I’m praying.
The bell rang for dinner that night and I made sure I was one of the first in line. I threw on an extra chunk of cheese when the server wasn’t looking because I’d forgotten to make sure I had my 5oz. of dairy that morning. It’s very important to be obedient to the Lord in everything, and that includes making sure my body gets what it needs. While I was eating I noticed that some of the people at the end didn’t have enough food-guess they should have been faster at getting in line.
The next morning I sat under the most central tree and opened up my biggest Bible. It was a bit awkward making sure that everyone could see the outside cover, which said HOLY BIBLE, but I managed it - anything for the Lord. I also turned up my CD player to ‘superloud’ and played, Our God is an Awesome God, over and over. I needed to make sure that everyone knew what I stood for.
Once the professor had finished his talk on campus communication that afternoon, I made sure to ask loud questions about religious groups and their methods of communiqué. People need to know that we Christians are not a minority and need to be consulted before anything is organized. After all, we are a majority in the government.
Later that day I went around and passed out the tracts I’d made about hell. They had such awesome drawings. I’d spent ages making sure the flames were the right shade of orange and red, and am so thankful to the Lord for giving me the gift. I’d entitled them TURN OR BURN – it seemed apt when I was in the midst of such a cesspool of iniquity.
It poured rain that night, and one couple had the nerve to ask me if they could share my tent. They’d been camping in the woods but all their stuff was wet. I figured it was the time to give them a lecture on the consequences of their sin of sleeping together before marriage, and told them that God was judging them with the rain for their choices. I told them I’d let them in if they repented and chose Jesus as their Lord and Savior, but they told me I could…well, it’s too embarrassing to retype here. I’ve been praying for them too, that they would learn to choose righteousness and good manners over their sinful, lustful, fleshly desires.
On Sunday I could not believe the peace service. The teacher had the nerve to say that we all had the same God and went on and on about how we were one world, and could be one people group. It was all so shocking! I muttered many things and made sure I was loud enough for those around me to hear so that they could be sure to choose the right path.
Overall I am very excited about how far I got with my evangelism. This is definitely my gifting, and I hope to do more very soon. Come Lord Jesus!
