Shawn called to inform me today that Orlando Magic basket ball player, Rashard Lewis was going to be at the grand opening of Circuit City in town. Circuit City is located in our fishing hole an outdoor mall called The Loop. We figured a professional NBA player in our small town would draw a crowd. And with a crowd brings about a great opportunity to hand out gospel tracts to the masses.
When we arrived there was only a handful of people who came out for the opening. We saw Rashard Lewis pre-signing some basket balls. I seized the opportunity, stepped over the velvet rope, and stuck my hand out to shake his. He looked confused, but was polite, so I followed my handshake with, "here's another mill to add to your collection" and handed him a Million Dollar Bill gospel tract. He smiled and proceeded to autograph it. Two other tall men, who were probably his friends, asked if it was real. I said "Oh yea, its got a real message on it," and handed them each one a bill. After Rashard Lewis handed me the signed bill back, I made sure to hand him another.
What an awsome God I serve! Pray for Lewis and his friends.
