🎡 August 2015: Beit Shalom Balevav takes their Responsible Stewardship outreach to the general public at the Clark County Fair. Fair entrance this year was about 290,000 people at the gates! An estimated 50,000 fairgoers walked pass our booth and we had nearly 1,000 meaningful conversations about stewardship and the gospel.
Hundreds of Responsible Stewardship Handbooks were given out to fairgoers looking for a better way to live. The handbooks feature God’s wisdom to take care of His earth and are filled with Scriptures of love, hope, and peace. We educated people in our community on how to reduce, reuse, recycle, compost, and green clean. We had free handouts and information on how to do these things. We also provided displays, demos, and demonstrations available to those interested in learning. Three green cleaning kits ($50 value each) and a commercial backyard composter ($65 value) were given away in free drawings. We also gave away a Big Lake Youth Camp scholarship for summer 2016 to a local 16 year-old boy who lives in Vancouver. The intent of this scholarship is to bring a young person who is ready to enter the “real world” to camp. Once there at camp, may this young man have a great time, learn lifeskills, make friends, and learn about Yeshua, our LORD and Messiah.
Cast your burden upon the LORD, and He shall sustain you: He shall never allow the righteous to be moved. -Psalm 55:22
