From Area Leader Jeff Goss:

“We had several ministers give us there contact information to maybe help next year. Once again we had large numbers of people coming to our booth to receive walking sticks and to hear the Gospel.”

Brandon Byrd sharing with a young man. These days, it may very well be the first time he heard the Gospel.

“Last year, we had one Bible school student help us at this show. This year, we had five Bible Schools help us. The Bible school instructor said she wants to promote this even more, so we will have more help next year. She also was interested in getting students involved in helping us with the Louisiana State FFA convention this summer in Alexandria Louisiana. Bible school student Hunter Bailey said doing this outreach helped him immensely and that he wants to minister at another farm show in the future.”
