Pastor Randy Smith (pictured) of the Grace Brethren Church in Sebring, Florida, shares his excitement about his church’s outreach during its recent Fall Festival:
I came back from Europe in time for the messages Sunday AM and the Fall Festival in the afternoon. We had 968 people come out and 37 decisions to accept Jesus as Savior.
I am overwhelmed by God’s goodness, and frankly thrilled that the team seemed to pull off the event without me. I was walking around greeting people and every job was covered. We saw a marked increase in the Hispanic population as well, and had people stationed to speak in Spanish to them. It was thrilling to watch.
We had less than one pan of food left and a few cupcakes by the end. Fortunately, the ladies had prepped for a high turnout and Wal-mart is only blocks away (a shuttle kept supplies coming in on time!).
