After a number of years of Appleby Show on a Saturday, it was back again on a Thursday but we were disappointed to see the rain falling and after a few attempts to reach our designated position, we arrive at our place on the Show field. Due to the rain, attendance was down, nevertheless, we had some profitable conversations.

One of our first visitors was K, a teacher from Merseyside, who was on holiday at Greenodd with her husband and three boys in their teens. They went to church only occasionally, the boys had been taught Evolution at school and were doubting God. We explained that it wasn’t credible to believe that nothing made everything and were able to give Mum and the boys “10 Reasons to believe in the Existence of God” and other tracts. K said “I wish we had met you a few years ago “- do pray this whole family will seek the Lord the young people remembering their creator in the days of their youth

Ron met friends who he had spoken to at the Gypsy Fair and gave the couple a DVD and bookmarks.

We were encouraged to meet Christians from Kilwinning who called to say how encouraged they were to see a witness at the Show, we also knew some of their friends and family.

A lady who we both knew was happy to talk and accept a tract.

Before we began putting everything away in the boxes, we were able to talk to a Christian young couple she had just lost her mother and asked us to remember them in prayer so we returned back home along the muddy track to the road home arriving back to Warcop we pressure hosed the van down ready for the next show. Despite the rain we continue to pray that there will be showers of blessing in our County.
