Chandler Parade of Lights

In the thick of the crowd!
Each year in early December, Chandler Arizona celebrates the Christmas season with a tumbleweed Christmas tree lighting ceremony and light parade. The event draws many thousands of valley residents and provides a great opportunity for evangelism and fellowship.

This year, I was joined by my friends Greg Ortiz and Robert Quiroz from my home church of  San Tan Bible Church in Gilbert, AZ. We partnered with a couple of other local churches endeavoring to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with a sound biblical message. Sherry Pierce of First Baptist Church of Chandler does a great job organizing the distribution of thousands of gospel tracts and is always happy to accommodate fellow laborers who are willing to help. Before the night was over, we were able to distribute over 6,000 gospel tracts before the parade even started. Please pray that those receiving  tracts would  hear the message of eternal life in Christ and reach out to Him in faith.
