An amazing response on Saturday at Wilson Park. It was our first "Concert in the Park" in Torrance and by what we heard, it may have been the first of any church. One lady said that she has lived across the street from the park for many years and has never seen a church do anything like this. Others made similar comments, mostly that they had never seen a church give away so much free stuff. Literally, people tried to give us money while we were giving out toys. We would reply each time, "Nothing is for sale; it's all free." One lady apologized for crying, because she was so moved by what Xclaimed Ministries was doing for the children. She said,"Besides the toys, I witnessed so many children come to forward to pray and ask Christ into their life. This is so wonderful."
This was one of the most expensive events that we have done in a long time, and it was further distance from our location than we have been in a long time as well. That may be why it drew so much skepticism. The most asked questions were, "Why do you do it?" and "Why Torrance?" It isn't that complicated, people need to hear about Jesus Christ. If we don't deliver the Message; who will? In the end, people got saved - that's why we do it!
