For many years, the newsletters for Open Air Outreach were only published through email. Those newsletters were not posted online. We are now in the process of archiving these old newsletters online so that they are available to the body of Christ at large to read and be encouraged and edified by them.

Stephen Starnes and I decided to take a little but of the afternoon to go over to the local Tarrant County College and preach.
After finding a spot I thought would be good, I started to preach. A crowd of 20 people gathered in no time and we started going back and forth Q/A style.
Some of the crowd was a bit too wild. One girl hit me in the head with one of her books. But I would say it was an awesome open-air.
After around 15 minutes of preaching two police officers rushed over and said “Hey Hey Hey! Get down from there! Don’t you know the rules about preaching religion?” They went on to tell me that it’s called disorderly conduct if you offend someone.
They admitted it was a public campus, but that it’s only public to the students (that would make it a private school). I didn’t want to explain what a public campus meant and what free speach actually means so I asked if I could go to the admin to get permission to preach. They said it was ok!
I talked to a lady who was very nice, but she needs me to talk to her boss who was in a meeting. She wrote down my questions and gave me the # to call. She said I just have to let them know 24 hours in advance and get their approval first.
PRAY THAT THEY GIVE US PERMISSION TO PREACH. I believe that they will give us permission. If not, I’ll take them to court. I have the whole thing recorded. But I don’t think we’ll have to go to court. I refuse to go back on campus without approval from the admin, so I appreciate your prayers that they will approve us.
Also pray for November 16th which is when I have to appear in court for my federal lawsuit againt the New Haven, CT police department.
