Patrick is 86 years old. He and his wife live in Arizona, a desert area of the U.S. during the winter. And when summer comes, they move up north to Minnesota.
In BOTH locations they are ambassadors for Jesus. No matter which location they are in, they consistently spend two hours every week doing something remarkable.
They go to the streets or park to talk to people about Jesus. Usually they have conversations with 14-24 year olds, because they have found that age group to be most interested in hearing about Jesus.
They have lead over 300 people to the Lord in the last three years. With each person they meet, they give them a little packet of gummy bears candy, a gospel booklet, and a EveryStudent.com card. And they ask “Do you have anything I could pray for you today?”
And they share the gospel with them.
When someone receives Christ, they ask for their name and email address, and permission to sign them up to receive “The Spiritual Starter Kit.” Then when they get back to their house, they sign up those who agreed.
What struck me is how faithful they’ve been to go out and do this. I hope at 86 I have both the strength, and more importantly, the love of God in my heart to motivate me to keep reaching out to those who have yet to know Jesus!

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith…” Hebrews 12:1
