Want to know what happened at the West Hollywood Gay Pride Parade last week? Team leader Tom Nance-Ulrich has this report. Hollywood Gay Pride Parade 2010 Outreach
as reported by Tom Nance-Uhlrich
Eight intrepid evangelists, ranging from a current student in Steve Sanchez’s “Sharing Your Faith Without Fear” class to an Ambassadors’ Academy Team Leader, set out to West Hollywood on Sunday morning June 13, 2010.
I was the only one who had gone to last year’s parade, shared some advice with the evangelists that “Righteous Richard” gave him last year: “Keep your eyes on faces, and the hand you are putting a tract into.” Tom warned the group that they were going to an event like they have never gone to before, and will see things they have never seen. Afterward this was confirmed by all.
The little band was able to hand out an estimated 6,000-7,000 pink “Got Equality” tracts, million dollar bill tracts and giant $100 bills. We walked the entire length of the parade from back to front. One evangelist was slapped across the face, another was propositioned, and another had his tracts ripped to pieces.
At one time a stack of giant $100 bills was stolen out one of the evangelist’s hands and the thief then tried to rip the stack of bills in half. Being unable to do so, he took them to a police officer and claimed that we were preaching hatred by handing out hate-filled tracts. The evangelist explained that we were there to preach love. He showed the officer the tract, who after reading it, said he found nothing illegal or inappropriate on them. He told the evangelist that he could continue handing out tracts, but that he had to keep moving so he would not be blocking traffic.
All of the team members reported several good conversations and were very happy to be used by the Lord to share the Law & Gospel with those who so need to hear the truth of Christ.
