Day 75- Three Kids and a Grocery Store

Many people will say that witnessing with children is very difficult. I agree, but it is still possible. At the grocery store today I loaded up my three kids in a grocery cart and we went witnessing. We ran in to a lady in an aisle filled with golfing attire.

Me: Are you a golfer?
Women: Yes, my husband and I are getting out for the first time this year.
Me: Are you from here?
Women: No, we are from Wisconsin.
Me: Wow, that is a long drive. Did you know that there are over 200 churches within a few mile radius of this place?
Women: I did not know that.
Me: Do you have a church in Wisconsin?
Women: Yes, we are Catholic.

At this point, the kids began to get loud and their patience was wearing thin. I told the lady that I had to go and I left her with a gospel tract.

An interesting event occured as we were about to leave the store. Alyssa found a way to get her entire body, minus one leg, stuck in the cart where only one leg is to go. My objective was not to panic, but I had no idea how to get her out. A man down the aisle saw how confusing the situation looked and walked over to help. Together, we pulled her to safety.

Me: Sir, thanks a million (handing him a million dollar bill gospel tract). You are worth every penny!
