I continued to hear the question, " how much does the face painting cost?" We continued to reply , " its free, as long as you can recite the bible verse" ...Matthew 22:37 "love the Lord with all your heart, with all your soul, and all your mind."'
I never knew the reward of a painted face would bring such enthusiasm for the word of God. My favorite part was hearing the parents and kids screaming to one another ,
" es gratis, es gratis, it's free, it's free"
Free? They were so excited to receive a free face painting, they ran and grabbed their friends, their neighbors, family; I even painted one of the mothers faces. They smiled and cheered, many children kissed me and graciously thanked me many times over for this free gift.
I began to think about the gospel and how it is the life changing power for all. It is the hope people are searching for and it's free, it's free! So much better than a face painting that will wash away and be forgotten.
Salvation an eternal gift that lasts forever.
That day in the park many people gave their lives to Christ, (Zoe and her friend even had the privilege of praying with a lady to receive the Lord) one couples marriage was restored and are now attending a local church, and many children went home knowing the word of God a little more.
Please join us in prayer; that the truth of His word would be near to their hearts and the seeds planted would grow into a beautiful testimony of His love for all. His Free love that is!!!!
