There wasn't many people out and about tonight. The few that were out were in a rush to get to where they were going. It was pretty cold outside.

I arrived at 8:00pm and met up with GNN Seed Sower, Michael Borich. While talking, a young man named Tim walked up. He had a guitar with him and Michael had his harmonica, so they began to play music together. After a little while, Tim began talking to us. He just moved into his apartment and decided to go out and meet people in the square area of downtown.

We told Tim that we go downtown and witness to others. He thought is was a great idea and couldn't believe that we were out witnessing and didn't even belong to the same church. He mentioned a couple of books he is currently reading regarding Christianity. Tim is very intellectual. He has some very good questions. We decided to take him through the "Good Person Test" (10 Commandments) to show him how we begin witnessing with someone.

About this time, along came another young man named "Ice". He said he was a Christian, but kept cursing. We began taking them through the Ten Commandments, and Tim was very evasive and didn't want to admit to breaking many of them, and kept changing the subject. We thanked Tim for his time, gave him some gospel tracts and left. Please pray for him.

While we were talking with Tim and "Ice", GNN Seed Sower David Lohn arrived, along with his son, Nathanel.  Also, J.J. Lindsey and Danika arrived. There were 6 of us out tonight.

We split up and began passing out tracts. We did more passing out tracts tonight than we did one-2-one conversations, due to the cold (no one wanted to stand around and talk). Michael decided to use some of the "St. Patrick's Day Quiz" tracts that he created. People were really taking them. There is questions about St. Patrick and who he was, etc. and it led right into asking someone if they were "good enough" to go to heaven.

We talked to a lady named Debra at the bus station. She has some medical issues that she is dealing with. We told her we would be praying for her and gave her a gospel tract and info that may assist her. Please pray for Debra.

We decided to leave early tonight. I went back to Michael's house and we watched ABC's "Nightline" interview of The Way of the Master. The Way of the Master is who I learned how to be an "effective" witness for Christ through. Overall, it was a good interview. It only lasted 10 minutes.

We want to thank God for those that did accept gospel tracts tonight and the few we talked to. We pray that the Holy Spirit will convict their hearts and show them their need to repent and trust in Him.

In Christ,

Brad St. Clair
