2011 Beaverton Days Celebration - Face Painiting

Yes, there was a line of kids waiting to have their face painted (see above photo).

The Beaverton Days Celebration includes a parade that starts at 10:00 AM and then a vendor area from 12:00 noon until 4:00 P.M. The plan was to hand out tracts at the parade and then run the booth to do face painting for the kids. It didn't work out that way.

Beaverton Days CelebrationThe Lord's plans are always better.

The best time to hand out tracts at the parade is about an hour before the parade starts, so the volunteers started setting up the booth at 8:00 AM so they could be at the parade by 9:00. But as soon as the face painting banner was up people starting stopping at the booth.

Later in the day enough extra volunteers showed up so that several were able to wander around the vendor area handing out tracts and talking with people. Meanwhile, back at the booth it turned out the location was excellent. It was right at the entrance of the children's area. At times there was a line of kids waiting to get their face painted (and hear the gospel).

So many kids wanted their face painted that volunteers burned out after about two hours of face painting. It was a very busy, tiring and joy filled day!

This booth was 100% run by and staffed by SW Hills Baptist Church in Beaverton, Oregon. SW Hills has also been the primary supporter of our summer evangelism efforts.
