>The Last Eight Days – Sunday Oct 31

Posted: November 7, 2010 in Uncategorized

>      What an amazing week! Let me give you the great details chronologically. Last Sunday we had a wonderful worship time at sojourn with about 35 of us worshipping together. Right after worship we stayed at Sojourn for lunch. We all brought in hotdogs and drinks and ate and fellowshipped for about an hour and a half. It was very good and fun. The mall was having their annual “Spooktacular” event from 3.30PM to 5PM with kids doing their “trick or treating” at the mall. We participated at Sojourn and at Ice Cream and Answers. At Ice Cream and Answers we ordered 17 cases of ice cream and at Sojourn we had about 30lbs of candy. At 3PM the crowds began to arrive with kids of all ages dressed up like werewolves and Spongebob and vikings. We think about 1200 people were here of which they all visited us at Ice Cream and Answers (we gave away about 900 ice cream bars). Then this same group came down to Sojourn where we had the band playing some of their best worship songs, several of our “worship stations” set up as displays and many of my fellow sojourners greeting people and giving away candy. It was an amazing day. On top of all this, we had two special visitors; a NAMB missionary from Virginia (Daniel Bannister) and a IMB missionary from India (Albert Garrou). Both missionaries had lunch with us and stayed all afternoon and worked Ice Cream and Answers with us. Daniel was extra valuable to us in that he speaks Spanish. (His church plant is among Spanish-speaking people in Virginia). We have many Spanish-speaking customers here and I’ve not been able to connect with them well. Daniel was able to do this very well. We ended the day worshipping with Ridgecrest Church. It was very amazing. Technically, we could claim 1200 visitors to Sojourn on Sunday, but they didn’t fill out visitor cards.
