Kalispell Fair Booth Does Triple Duty

December 01, 2002 | Darrell Babb

Kalispell and Columbia Falls church members in Northwest Montana jointly sponsored a booth at the recent Flathead County Fair, where visitors picked up many copies of Steps to Christ and Desire of Ages books and filled out religious-interest surveys.

Booth hosts also gave out 325 spiritual “Survival Kits,” with devotional items such as Bibleinfo.com reference cards, “Attack on America” flyers, and invitations to register for Discover Bible School.

The blessings then traveled beyond the Kalispell area. Project coordinator, Gail Metzger, agreed to lend the fair booth display to members of the Eureka Adventist Church, for a fair scheduled in their town the next weekend. Their display included a Bible Prophecy Chart, listing Bible prophecies fulfilled to date and a time clock that showed the nearness of Jesus’ coming.

The Lincoln County Health Office donated a glucose monitor and blood sugar strips, so Eureka members could conduct some 100 blood tests, as a community service.

Eureka members wrote the test results down in a devotional book, which visitors were invited to keep for reference.

The three churches thank God, who inspires and encourages cooperation among brothers and sisters, and all volunteers who helped make the fair ministry possible.
