While studying at Texenza Coffee Shop on Monday morning, I had a really cool experience. I walked by the bulletin board and it was totally blank so I posted a couple EASTER AT THE EMBASSY business cards so everyone could see both sides. I then quitely sat and worked on my computer.
About an hour later, one of the workers walked by the bulletin board and started looking at our cards. She said out-loud, “Oh, PromiseLand!” That is all she said.
However, the sentence was dripping with meaning. Obviously, the cards caught her attention enough for her to read the content. She could not tell who was putting on this event, until she read long enough. By the way, this is a great testiment to the designer (Harry). If an ad captivates someone’s attention this long, it is a great success. Her quest paid off when she saw our logo and name. She proclaimed loudly, “Oh, PromiseLand”. The way she said it meant that she had heard of it before, and it seemed like it meant “of course, this is PromiseLand.”
Now, the responsibility lies with us all when “Oh, PromiseLand” people actually visit. Have we all prepared spiritually to welcome these people?
