I turned around and this young man (Jeremy) was walking towards me (he was one of the workers at the car wash) so as a last resort, as I was on the air, I quickly explained what we were doing. He nodded in agreement and held his hand out to take the phone. I was relieved.
While Jeremy was on the phone, there was a long line of cars backed up of people waiting to get their cars washed. I quickly went up to each car and made a motion with my hand as if I was rolling down the window and one by one each car followed my directions. I handed the driver a Million Dollar Bill and said, "You're probably wondering why there is such a long line to get your car washed, well one of the workers is live on radio. Right now! And you, too, can tune into 91.3 and listen!" Before I new it there were ten different cars tuning into to the station. All hearing the same gospel message.
After Jeremy got off the air he didn't seem to have a lot to say. He said something to the effect of, "I believe differently than them." He appeared to be disinterested. Either way, I preached the gospel to him again just so he could hear the truth twice. That never hurts.
I was surprised to see a big smile on his face as I held out a Million Dollar Bill tract and then gave him an episode from the TV show. He said he would watch it.
I try to not be moved with how people respond after I preach the gospel to them. Whether they are what appears to be "moved" or "indifferent", I just do my part and share with them what the Bible says. I trust that God will do the convicting.
