Outdoor enthusiasts from across Virginia filled the halls of Thomas Road on Saturday, April 27th, for Beast Feast 2013. This annual event celebrating the great outdoors offered seminars loaded with information about fly fishing, black bear hunting and an array of other outdoor activities, local outdoor vendors, and of course, food!
Attendees sampled raccoon, octopus, venison sausage and wild boar. At the end of each row of food, the remains of the boar shot down hunters greeted Beast Feast patrons.
Al Linder, nationally acclaimed fisherman and Christ-follower, spoke to the many gathered. He shared a
testimony from his life and how Christ changed everythingfor him. He shared how God broke through his defenses and blessed him abundantly for it. Through that, he has been able to share the Gospel with so many, like those who were gathered that Saturday night.
When Al was finished, Pastor Jonathan took the stage to share the Gospel of Christ and the message of salvation. While prizes loomed at the end of the event, Jonathan preached of the greatest gift of all, leading over 200 in prayer to
accept Christ as Savior.
After prizes were passed out and the crowds had gone home, our team rejoiced in the success of the evening – new friendships formed and lives changed for eternity.
