    Last night Matt,Theresa, and I went to Gurnee Mills. Even before entering the bulding I bagan handing out gospel tracts as I went. Our first main contact was a young mom working a kiosk. She said she was a beleiver. We had a nice chat with her and prayed with her, but we did not ask the diagnostic questions, so there is no way of knowing what she means by “believer”. We gave her info about the church and we are going to have our chaplain intern follow-up with her husband.

    We continued walking and handing out gospel tracts. I stopped and talked with a woman named Sky. She did not believe there was a heaven or hell. She believed in “science”, and during our conversation began to laugh at what I was saying; essentially mocking me. The Scriptures inform us to give the Law to the proud and Grace to the humble. I informed her that I was an ambassador of Jesus Christ, the King of Kings, and focused the rest of my discussion on whether or not Jesus rose from the dead. She needed to find out the answer to the question. She said after she dies then she will know. I told her that would be too late. She could die tonight and go to hell. God is reaching out to her. He has sent three of His servants to give her a message. Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved. Ignore His loving offer of eternal life through His blood sacrifice on a cross and be eternally condemned. She was looking me dead in the eyes and was no longer mocking. Sometimes we must get serious. Spending eternity in Hell is serious business. Do you beleive that? Or are you planning your next vacation?

   My final contact was with a young man named Zach. He is from Round Lake and knew where CCLV was. Long time church attender, but has decided not to believe anymore. We were having a good conversation when a customer showed up. We waited, but the customer stayed a long time, and so we finally left. Please pray for “N”, Sky, and Zach, as well as the other 20 people who recieved gospel tracts.
