Every church we know of is looking for someone like Sandra.

This was either the start of Godís conviction or a new life in Christ.
We asked what she was going to tell her friends.
The Lord may have touched an unwilling heart.
Chelsey, while only 13, was carring a burden.
Gloria was a new person, but it was not a change she made, but God made it in her. That is her proof for the rest of her life that she was saved that day.

Boy said he was already saved. We gave him a tract and told him to give it to one of his friends who was not saved. He paused for moment, then turned to his mother wide eyed and said, "Murphy!" She nodded her head in agreement.
Everyone knows of someone who needs to hear how Jesus saves from destruction and gives life.
Church in Fort Worth
A pastor came by the booth 5 or 6 years ago and saw what we were doing. He copied the idea to be and used at his Fall Festival (Halloween replacement). They stopped by this year to tell us they have seen many, many children and parents saved. Pastor and his wife were very thankful to the Lord.
Many bus loads of students came to the Texas State Fair. One boy was already saved. He said a teacher gave them a project for class to take some pictures of a booth or exhibit and work-up a presentation for class. He said he was going to explain how we used the 3 Doors and the booth to tell people how to be saved. Good for him. There is always another way to get the job done.
Adela wanted to see how to be Born Again
Mary Ann 42
Yes, that is what she put down. We kind of like that wording. "Safed" sounds like saved and safe.
He was sent to get permission from his parents to hear the Gospel. 2 hours later he came with the whole family. Father, mother and 3 children asked the Lord to save them. Good job Jose.
Good for Sam!
It was his time to see it and the Lord did His job.
Those of us that are already saved, know what she is talking about.
Sin and guilt is an awful thing to carry around.

Karen knew where she was formerly going.
Mary June 17
Not just received the Saviour, but FULLY!
Lady (55+) who was certain she was lost
"How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher (not a sermonizer, but a lay witness)?" Romans 10:14
New Car Sales Manager
Teen girls can be very expressive.
She was doubtful to start with, but wanted to know more. She got it.
She told her mother how to be born again and as Olga prayed, Jessica did, too.
Elsa was skeptical, but wanted to hear how to be born again. After hearing she commented "What a beautiful story". She prayed and asked the Lord to save her and told Pat, "What a beautiful prayer".
Erin certainly understood what happened to her.
This is the testimony of almost everyone who sees their sin forgiven and their Saviour livin'.
Lisa had taken Jesus for granted, now she has taken Him as her Personal Saviour.
Very profound for a 17 year old.
It did not take much to show Jeanette, she was like a person waiting for a airplane: packed, and standing at the gate.
Kristina got her arms around what is difficult for many. The fact of being saved from all sin in the past and even those in the future. Not the commission of them but the judgment.
I felt chills praying to Jesus. I've been born. Thank you Jesus. Amen
Loreleen's father was with her. He had already been saved. As soon as the question was asked if they wanted to see it how to be saved, he immedi-ately said yes, knowing his daughter was not saved.
I listened to him explain about the reason we cannot save ourselves and must allow Jesus to be accepted as our personal Saviour. I have been saved.

Derek 12 - with older person
I asked Jesus for a home in Heaven.
I asked Jesus to forgive my sins and let Him know that I want Him in my heart.
Lacie knew what she needed.
I felt something - Whooo!
When Raquel was trying to write on the back of her decision card what had happened to her, we said, "You just asked Jesus to save you, what happened to you when you did that?" She said, "I felt something, WHOOOO!" We told her to write that down and she did. We know salvation is not emotion, but it is a change that is experienced.
Pat had an 11 year old boy come by the booth who saw the 3 doors and wanted to know what "born again" meant. Since we don't seat children 12 and under for a witness without their parent's permission, Pat told him the story while he stood outside the booth. He listened closely, the whole time tightly clutching one or several dollars in his hand. She did not extend a prayer because of his age (the one thing that can get us kicked out of an event immediately is an irate parent). He left and in 10 minutes was back with a picture he had won at a dart game. He showed Pat. It was a picture whose likeness many assign to Jesus. You don't know what an impact this had on us. He had gone to play this dart game with dozens of pictures (Sponge Bob, Batman, Tweety Bird, etc) to win and he chose Jesus. It is doubtful he had heard much about Him prior to Pat's witness, but somehow and for some reason, he wanted THAT picture. He was very proud of it and assumed we would be, also. He then asked a question, we have never heard before (and we have heard 99.9% of them). He asked Pat, "Have you been into Jesus since you were a kid?" It seemed that he was wanting to know if it was possible that kids could be "into Jesus" or maybe wondering if he was the only kid who was "into Jesus". Pat was stunned! No one had ever asked that . She told him NO, but at the age of 28 she did get into Jesus when she got saved. She talked and then he walked off with his Jesus picture. The whole thing was so sweet and innocent; we have talked about it for days. It seemed that somehow, God got a hold of his imagination and gave him something that we cannot comprehend. One thing for sure, even after people leave the booth, the Spirit is still working.
I accepted Jesus as my Saviour and was forgiven for my sins.
Laura was sure about forgiveness.

I believe in Jesus and now I know I am saved.
Rosa seems to have found what she was looking for.
I felt like God went in my heart.

I have been forgiven for my sin and I am saved.

Sandra over 21
Sandra saw it.
Don't know if Felisa got saved, but she was warned that an insincere prayer will not save.

It is good to understand it. We hope Angelia actually got it.
We thought these words were troubling for a 15 year old.
We feel most readers would be surprised how often this happens.
Most would be surprised how often this does not happened for people of this age.
It is difficult sometimes to realize that there are many at the age of 18 who would like to start their lives over.
