Many of you may have heard of the Cross Canada Cruisers. A group of men are taking the gospel from shore to shore (actually two teams starting at each end of the country and meeting in Ontario) in old classic cars. I had the chance to meet and pray with some of these men and I met Jay while speaking in Tavistock. Here is his first report...(Be sure to park your mouse at their website www.crosscanadacuiser.com)
"Greetings in the name of our Father through our Lord Jesus Christ,
I arrived to Vancouver BC this past saturday. From there I took one of
the BC ferries across to Victoria island. The view from the ferry was
honestly one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
This week we are being taught the book of romans by John Allen, and we
are working with Tim Hood in our outreach. We have our teaching on
romans at the assembly out here (westview gospel chapel) every morning.
The first major outreach was had was the Victorian Day parade. I was
again amazed at the ability these classic cars have and their ability
to 'attract' a crowd. Especially the 56 mercury montclair with glass
packed dual mufflers, that I have been privileged to drive :-) The
parade lasted about 4 hours, and we were able to distribute just shy
of 6000 'worlds biggest lie' cds. Many of the people that received the
cd's were appreciative and polite, and nobody really gave us any
opposition. Tuesday night we went downtown Victoria to the parliament
buildings. I ended up talking to a couple by the name of Mike and
Nicole for about 45 mins about spiritual things. Pray for Mike and
Nicole. They are very interested, but are still somewhat resistant to
God's perfect plan of salvation.
This friday and saturday we will be going down by the water to watch
and witness at a boat race. We plan to park the cars right on the
dock, and allow people to come and check out the cars, while trying to
work the gospel into the conversations. Pray for the hearts of these
people, most people are very receptive to talk to us, but when we turn
the conversation to spiritual things, are usually quick to end it or
I would write more, but as you can see...I'm not very good at this
whole letter writing thing,
ps. the crosscanadacruisers.com website is up and running, for anyone
technologically advanced that wants to check it out :)"
