PAIR Day


We had a booth at the Post Activities Information and Registration Day (PAIR Day) at Ft Leavenworth on Saturday. This event happens twice a year to coincide with the arrival of the new classes at the Command and General Staff College. We set up a table with Bibles, tracts, fliers, note pads, pencils, and candy and for 4 hours (10am - 2 pm) we stood at the table and gave away 3 or 4 hundred bibles and talked with dozens of people about our church. What a blessing it was as thousands of people came through the gym and received information about the businesses and organizations around the Fort. We could not have met and introduced Northwest Baptist Church to this many potential visitors in any other 4 hour block of time. I am excited about the visitors this will produce over the next several weeks to our church.
I have run tables at conferences many times, but I don't think I have ever been as encouraged about the prospect of reaching this many people before. Thank the Lord for this opportunity and we will most definitely have a table at all of the PAIR Days. I can't wait to see how God will bless our church as a direct result of distribution of so much gospel literature. I also believe we can learn a lot from this PAIR Day and improve on our efforts for the next time.
Thank you for praying for this great event and now pray the Lord's word will do a work in the hearts of those who received it.

Brother! How awesome! Whereever there is a crowd there is an opportunity! It's not often God brings a crowd right by us. Thanks for taking the opportunity.

What a blessing to be allowed to get to this needy group of people. I hope many young service families are helped throught the ministry there.
