Carelinks | Canada
Bro Jim and Sis Anne Barton of the Kingston, Ontario ecclesia are the representatives of Carelinks in Canada and we’re much encouraged by their report as follows:
“Sunday morning, May 21st, Anne and I led a 45 minute Gospel Sing-A-Long at the Eastern Ontario Bluegrass Music Festival. It featured 8 popular Gospel songs with three short Bible talks in between them to explain the covenant of Baptism and the need to “repent and be baptized” for their salvation. We also stressed the value of reading the Bible to allow the Lord to speak, guide and instruct them along the way.
We had about 60-70 people in attendance and we concluded by offering to meet with members of the audience after our set to share free Bible materials. The reception was terrific. We distributed 14 NEV Bibles with reading schedules, 7 Bible Basics Books, 6 Introducing Bible Basics booklets, 1 Children's Bible book and numerous leaflets. We had many good contacts and conversations. On top of all that, the festival organizers were delighted with our show and immediately requested that we come back next year to do another. They were quite happy to provide us with a table at the back of the hall to meet with people and discuss the Bible. So it was truly a blessed day in the vineyard. It helps sometimes to think outside the box. This preaching effort didn’t cost us anything except for the cost of materials distributed. Thanks to all who have donated money to Carelinks and helped provide these valuable materials to help advance the Gospel in the hearts of many. Love in our shared hope, Anne and Jim Barton, Carelinks Canada.”
