Zombies (and a vampire) united for Night of the Living Dead Christian

The Wesley Foundation at Stephen F. Austin State University did a fun thing for Night of the Living Dead Christian this year! They were planning to do a study of the book on campus, so to advertise for the study, they dressed up as zombies (and a vampire) and went out on campus, inviting people to sign up for the study in exchange for a chance to win a copy of the book in a raffle.

It sounds like they had a great time, and a good turnout for reading the book together! Here are some pictures sent in by Amanda Mauldin, one of the Wesley Foundation staff:

Undead handing out fliers for a book study. Don't see that every day.
As you can see, people felt excited to sign up when encouraged by zombies.

Red shirts are very enticing for vampires.
I spoke at the Wesley Foundation retreat this spring. We had a great time.
See if you can find me in the picture. 
The thing about being a zombie is that whatever you're wearing, that's your only outfit forever.
It's best if you can go casual and formal simultaneously like this gentleman here.
So happy to be a zombie. 
On further examination, this zombie has two right hands. Amazing!
I really enjoyed spending time with the Wesley Foundation, their ministers as well as their students. We had a great time at their retreat, and (bonus) since it's primarily Methodists, we never had to talk about Calvinism or whether women are allowed to do ministry. Nice!

    You're first (or last depending on how you look at the row) far right in the 3rd row from the front. Dad

  2. We really enjoyed having you speak at the retreat, and dressing up like zombies! --Tom (and the plaid jacket zombie with two right hands--it's hard to find spare parts on short notice...)
