As it turns out, reader Amy “won” one of the vests. She does appreciate the gesture, but she thinks she can do something even better with the gift:
For your bidding pleasure… a brand-spankin’-new, genuine cowhide vest, handmade and signed by, that paragon of Christian thought, Ray Comfort at Living Waters Ministries.
This vest would fit women sizes 6/8. (I’m guessing here. This is what I wear and it fits me.) It has a super-soft outside, two pockets and four shiny, new snaps. It smells great, actually (if you like cow-hide, and I do), and though it’s a bit crispy, would soften up with some wear. Plus, did I mention, Ray Comfort signed it?! (on the inside)
But wait, there’s more!
75% of the winning bid will go to the FOUNDATION BEYOND BELIEF! (www.foundationbeyondbelief.org)
They aren’t quite the fashion statement I would make… but others seem to *really* like Ray’s vests:
And just how fine is this garment, you ask? Another auction is offering a Ray Comfort-made vest right now, and it’s currently going for 1,007.00 — all of this to support Living Waters Ministry (omfsm!) Can we wretched non-believers raise a similar amount for works that will make an actual positive difference in the world?
It’s a wonderful, generous idea and I hope Amy’s new vest sells for a lot.
