Fair Follies: Face Paint

Posted: Updated:

There are countless ways to spend --- and MAKE money at the North Dakota State Fair.

But instead of raking in, Jennifer Thorgramson tells us about a youth group that is giving back with a paint brush and a smile in tonight's Fair Follies.

 

A picture paints a thousand words.

Especially here.

"It says in John 3:16, 'For God so loved the world,' and he loves us so much, it's pretty awesome."

Something also pretty awesome, this 'free face painting and a gospel story' booth is for the kids, by the kids.

(Cindy Weltz, Child Evangelism Fellowship Volunteer) "Early in the spring they do a two week training course, it's mostly led by teens."

Child Evangelism Fellowship is an interdenominational youth program that reaches out year-round, worldwide.

(Bethany Kolschefski, Child Evangelism Fellowship Volunteer) "When the kids are super excited and they run off to their parents and they're like, 'Oh look what I got!' It's really fun because you know that the kids are really enjoying each painting."

No fair is complete without a little face paint, so it's certainly a valuable way to raise funds, but after a number of years at the North Dakota State Fair, the youth of the Good News Club have continued to deem their service: priceless.

(Bethany Kolschefski, Child Evangelism Fellowship Volunteer) "There's really no price on sharing the gospel with people."

(Cindy Weltz, Child Evangelism Fellowship Volunteer) "It is amazing, every year, 'You won't believe this!' or 'someone just sent a check in the mail!' It really even builds my faith."

Even if you've heard the story a thousand times, it will be the first time the painted-picture-reminder looks like this.

For Jennifer's Fair Follies at the North Dakota State Fair, I'm Jennifer Thorgramson, KX News.

They're located near the southeast corner of the 4-H barns.
