FIREPROOF First Responders Outreach Wrap Up

With the full support of our local Police & Fire Chiefs and Sheriff,
Missional Church Network Churches

are purchasing the tickets for the movie FIREPROOF as a blessing for our
Harvey County First Responders
and their spouses:

Newton, Hesston and Halstead Fire/EMS,
Harvey County Sheriff's Dept.,
Newton, Hesston and Halstead Police,
Newton Medical Center ER,
Harvey County 911 Dispatchers.

Our goals are to appreciate them,
to build into their marriages and lift up their spirits.

They will receive free popcorn and soda and if they like, a copy of the Love Dare book for free too!

Our daughter tells of a 7th grade boy who came to school telling everyone
"I saw the movie, I saw the movie FIREPROOF and it was AWESOME!"
"I got free popcorn and pop and went with my mom and dad
and they got the actual book that is in the movie too!"

Here's the final numbers - the real life stories are what matters most,
but we count and tract because people matter...

132 tickets used.
72 had names written on them (as requested) and 60 didn't - so this is a very partial count.
All 40 Love Dare books were taken - one per family.
Each book had a listing of MCN churches and an invitation to
find a church home if they do not already have one.

Of the tickets that had names:
Newton Fire/EMS - 8 families
Sheriff - 9 families
911 - 7 families
Newton PD - 3 families
ER - 2 families
Hesston PD - 1 family
Hesston Fire/EMS - 3 families
Halstead Fire/EMS - 2 families
Whitewater Fire/EMS - 1 family.
36 Families accounted for.

24 families were sent follow-up thank you note with a full color FIREPROOF Love, Marriage and Gospel booklets with a listing of churches and information about ordering the Love Dare books and Couples Bible study. I'm still working on getting the addresses for others.

Nice work!
