The next time you go to an amusement park, take advantage of the many evangelistic opportunities that will await you as you wait in those interminably long lines. We went to Disneyland on Saturday and had a great time! I promised my daughters that I wouldn’t have conversations with people (that would take up too much ride time), but I did hand out hundreds of Gospel tracts.
When standing in line, I did a little show to get people’s attention. I use a little disappearing cloth trick to arouse curiosity. I hold out a yellow cloth and make it disappear in front of everyone’s eyes (little kids get a kick out of it). Google “Thumb Tip Trick” to see how this works.
Then I use the Mind Game trick for the adults. This is great. I tell people that all they have to do is pick a card from the front and I’ll make it disappear from the back. It works—and baffles every time!
I then tell people I’m from “The Department of Annoyance” and show them my “card” that lets them know that I’m the “Director.”
After all this—my routine—I reward everyone who was watching with Million Dollar Bill Gospel tracts. I am actually meeting a need: helping would-be riders with their boredom issues, and showing them how to avoid hell if they should die of a heart attack on The Matterhorn. (Read this horrible article if you don’t believe me.)
Standing in long annoying lines can be aggravating; your time spent waiting doesn’t have to be.
By the way, we rode 27 attractions in 14 hours. And I honored my promise to the kids, too!
