Big Surprise!!!

Dear Friends,

While most assumed that the distance to the outer suburbs would place a tremendous limitation on attendance, the turnout thus far has far surpassed any of our expectations!   We are truly overwhelmed!  Thousands of cars fill the desert as crowds of people stand in hour-long lines, both to enter the fairgrounds and then again to enter each of the 2 large pavilions.  Along with this extra security, everyone is impressed with this beautifully designed and well equipped exhibition area.

Indeed the visitors seem to be more intentional and coming with purpose.  Happily this year, the 30 Christian publishers are scattered throughout both pavilions and no longer clustered in one area as before.  This means there are both deliberate customers as well as more “accidental” visitors who run across our booths as they browse.   Also surprising is the fact that we have much higher sales already when comparing these first days to the same period last year, with most of our stock there depleted on the first day!

These past years we have spoken of an increasing hunger and thirst for the Scriptures, and we see this trend evident with serious and candid discussions ongoing.  One man visiting from another country blatantly asked, “Don’t do business with me! I just need someone who will really listen to me and try to understand!”

We are so encouraged by the enthusiastic response of so many of you who wrote to say that you are praying.  Thank you each one, and please, keep praying!
