It was a holy convergence, a God-incidence to the max! The Hope Chapel evangelism team of fifteen parked and were walking toward the Coliseum and the campus of USC where they were to play the Ducks: a sold-out game with 93,000 in attending the game. At the stop light, the Holy Bible Team—25 strong—gathered with their signs of judgment and grace. (This is unusual for “sign guys.” Most focus on judgment and condemnation only). These were the “Good” sign guys.
We had three sound systems and a mixed age group of men and women ready to hand out about 6,000 specially made USC tracts. They had a mixed group as well with at least as many sound systems. We all converged together at the traffic light.
“From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember’d;
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers [and sisters]”
After crossing the street, they went to the south, to surround the Coliseum with their signs, spaced apart for maximum effectiveness and preachability.
We went to the campus and sent a team inside the university to hand out hundreds of tracts while we stationed ourselves across from the campus at two preaching stations.
The result: The Word was proclaimed.
