Academy Sept 2008 Glendale
I had the privilege again to lead a team of men for the Ambassador's Academy and was blessed to see and hear many conversations from all of them. God has lavished His grace on us and what better way to return the free gift of eternal life than to tell others why they are seperated from God and what they must do to be saved.
One of the locations of the Ambassador's Academy where we do evangelism is at the Americana in Glendale, California. This is a regular fishing hole for the director of the Ambassador's Alliance and for several other evangelist that regularly come out and share the Good News.
I'll never forget the first time that me and Tony and Mike from our church came out to the location and Tony picked out a spot on the sidewalk where he would do his first open air of the evening. My first thought as fear swept through me was that this wasn't going to work and people were going to walk away and we might possibly be forced to leave by security.
Here is how things went...
The results should not have surprised me that day since we had often drawn crowds when open air preaching at our old fishing pond at the Burbank Town Center which is another good location to engage people in one-2-one conversations and open air preaching.
Anyways. After being in Glendale for 10 months now I think back to all the conversations, open airs and fellowship and i'm glad that we didn't quit. I believe people have been saved from the wrath of God because the Word of Christ has been preached there and will continue to be preached as God allows.
