Unique Fund Raiser Offers Tracks To Pay For Tracts
Tualatin, OR Move To Assurance (MTA), a non-denominational
Christian evangelism and discipleship ministry, is running a unique
fund raiser this summer. They are selling real dinosaur tracks to
raise funds to purchase gospel tracts for use in over twenty-five
outreach events this year.
Move To Assurance partners which local churches to share the gospel
at fairs, festivals, parades, parks and bazaars. They will take
their evangelism booth, or lead evangelism teams, any place there
are groups of people who need to hear the gospel. Last year they
gave out over 28,000 tracts and 2,400 DVDs. This year they are hoping
be at more events and reach more people with the gospel, and that
means more resources are needed.
An exhibit of real dinosaur tracks is commonly a part of the MTA
evangelism booth. The tracks attract people to the booth and open
the doors to conversations and the gospel. This year additional
dinosaur tracks have been made available for MTA to sell, with 100%
of the profits going to pay for purchasing gospel tracts and DVDs.
The dinosaur tracks are available online at:
www.BuyDinosaurTracks.com. This is a web site created by MTA
specifically to sell dinosaur tracks. Four tracks at a time will
be offered online, with additional tracks added as the ones currently
on the site are sold.
The Dinosaur tracks being offered are Grallator tracks which were
made by a raptor type of dinosaur. They come from a privately owned
quarry located in the Connecticut River Valley in Massachusetts.
They range from 4 to 6 in size. Dinosaur tracks are
a one-of-a-kind item typically only found in a museum. This fund
raiser offers a unique opportunity to own a real dinosaur track
of your own.
This summer the Move To Assurance booth is scheduled to be at events
such as the Sherwood Robinhood Festival, the Cannon Beach Sand Castle
Day, the Newburg Old Fashioned Days Festival and the Tualatin Crawfish
Festival. Evangelism teams were at Cinco De Mayo in May and will
be at major parades, such as the Starlight Parade, throughout the
summer. Churches and individual Christians are invited to help at
a booth or other events. In addition to dinosaur tracks MTA uses
illusions, balloon animals, jokes and other fun ways to share the
gospel using law and grace. MTA evangelism teams have fun and so
do the people who hear the gospel.
More information about Move To Assurance, and a schedule of upcoming
events, is available on their web site at: www.MoveToAssurance.org.
MTA provides free evangelism training through live seminars and
