Laurie is the GLOW leader of her local church. Every year she goes with a childrens' ministry at her church, called Helping Hands, to distribute GLOW tracts at the local fair. This year Laurie and the kids ran into some trouble. The fair officials said they would not be allowed to distribute tracts to people everywhere on the fairgrounds, but that they would be restricted to a booth space. This was troubling, because they would not be able to take GLOW tracts to the people, the people would have to come to them.
Laurie prayed about it and moved forward. She and the kids made a booth, decorated it, and made signs to direct people to come get free GLOW tracts. Incidentally, when they signed up for a booth space at the fair, they were placed in a very high traffic location. When the fair began, people started coming. Lots and lots of people came. So many people came by their booth and got GLOW, that when the fair was over, they realized that they had distributed more GLOW tracts that year than any of the years previous! Thus, what appeared to be a hindrance to their ministry, was turned into a blessing.
