Report from the Wings, Wheels and Rotors Expo

In keeping with Pastor Curtis’s message at our gatherings Sunday, October 25th, several of us worked in unison and, together, were actually “A PEST” that same day!

At Good Shepherd, several of our members serve three or four times each year taking our message of the gospel to our neighbors in the community. Sunday, October 25th, we set up our church canopy at Wings, Wheels, Rotors and Expo, an annual event held at the Joint Forces Training Base in Los Alamitos. The event sponsors a gathering of some five to seven hundred antique and classic automobiles, as well as hot rods and other modified vehicles. To add to the excitement, there is always a fascinating assortment of old aircraft of many types, including “war birds”, helicopters, model aircraft, in addition to entertainment and fun for kids of all ages!

We operate from our canopy, handing out free cold, bottled water, “Dum-Dum” pops and cards with information about our church and who we are. Yes, we actually stop strangers and tell them about Good Shepherd and all that we offer! Once one becomes accustomed to evangelizing with total strangers, it gets to be surprisingly easy and fun! Those taking part in the endeavor with me were Bev Houghton, Dick Ramseyer, Chris Johnson, Claude Allison, and Tom and Laurelee Barnes.

The next event on our calendar is the annual “Winter Wonderland” Festival in Los Alamitos. The event takes place around the St. Isidore Church Plaza on Reagan Street, and it is slated for Saturday, December 5th, from 4 until 7:30pm.

The Winter Wonderland Festival is another fun opportunity for all participants. Those wishing to take part and actually be “A PEST” are invited to contactme at 562/304.3497 or .
