This was certainly an unforgettable, and ridiculous day! Jonathan preached the gospel open air at a gay rally! I was entirely thankful that I was just the camera girl and not the one up on the mic. As soon as Jonathan began explaining the gospel, about twenty-five very un-happy gay rights activists ran over to him and began chanting, “MARRIAGE EQUALITY FOR ALLLLLLLL,” while exposing their activists signs and posters in his face. I guess they kinda felt like we were stepping on their toes and crashing their party by showing up; which I can understand. However, what’s funny is Jon didn’t say a thing about homosexuals or marriage; so we were a bit confused as to why they so passionately hauled about equal rights. He started with the fundamentals of the gospel but rallyers found us to be downright offensive. As they got closer and closer to Jonathan I managed to inch my way closer and closer to the police in case they came and cussed me out too haha.
Our desire was to go out their and preach the hard truths and good news in love. We aren’t sure if it was received that way but the good news is the cops protected us,we didn’t get kicked out and the gospel was successfully delivered to several hundred people! Check out our video:)
Whats your craziest evangelism or open air story? We’d love to hear about it!
