Back to what I started on:
Today we went street preaching / picketing [not sure if that is the right word] / evangelizing with a dear Brother, Pastor Manuel from Lighthouse Baptist Church. Pastor stood on a busy street corner and preached with his bullhorn, while Dad, my friend Josh, Levi, and I carried Gospel signs. No sooner had Dad and I walked onto the sidewalk than two men approached and asked what was up with the signs. Dad told them, but they got a cell-phone call and left. Later on, a man and his girlfriend stopped and asked. They were very interested and asked m…
