This is an email I received from Bekah Wiedenhoeft, a high school student who is taking my evangelism class:
I had an amazing evangelism day and I couldn’t wait until Tuesday to tell you!
This morning after church I bought a stack of million dollar bills, then my family and I went to the Armed Forces Day thing at the Del Amo Mall. I was giving the bills out left and right! My first day “on the field” and I gave the whole stack away in about 2 hours!! Wow! That was amazing! After I ran out I felt weird not having any more because there were so many more people that needed them! But I’m so glad I could give them to the ones I did. I’m hoping that the soldiers will come to know Jesus before they go out on their next mission!
I only went through all the questions with about 5 people; the rest were just, “Did you get one of these? It’s a million dollar bill; the million-dollar question is on the back,” and walked away. I was glad my mom was close so she could help me out if I couldn’t find the words to say.
The first person I went through the questions with wouldn’t tell me he was a liar, since he had different definitions of lying, “I’m in the military and I can’t tell the parents of the soldier who died what really happened to him, so that’s not necessarily lying…” I wanted to tell him, “A lie’s a lie, no matter the circumstance!” I was getting kinda mad at him, so I’m glad my mom was there to take over.
Anyways thanks for reading! See you Tuesday!!
