I mentioned in my last post that we had a wonderful Halloween. It truly was a blessing and here’s why…
This is what our front yard looked like for over an hour on Halloween night. It was full of our neighbors and their kids playing games, eating free hot dogs and cupcakes, drinking cold lemonade. It was awesome!
About a month before Halloween our pastor began encouraging us to look at Halloween as a perfect opportunity to reach our neighbors with the love of Christ. We normally think of “witnessing” to our neighbors as something that involves going “door to door”, but on Halloween our neighbors come to our door! So we decided, along with the members of our small group, to set up a Halloween party in our front yard for all of our neighborhood to enjoy. Along with the games and free food, we gave out candy to the kids and a little package to each adult that introduced who we are, what we believe, and some info about our church. We had such a great turn out and it was so fun to see the reaction of people…this is all free?…you are doing this just because?:)
I think my pastor said it best…the devil doesn’t get any days…this is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!
