In my hometown of Wilmington, NC, I'm starting a street magic show. This show will be for Christian evangelistic purposes and the donations will go to a) Keeping it going and b) If there is enough extra money, I would put it towards my missions trips to Haiti and perhaps getting a second sponsor child. The set up would cost ~$125 for a permit and equipment, if you feel compelled to donate, this is the link: http://www.rockethub.com...

Any thoughts on this?

Please make sure that you're not hiding your evangelistic purposes. I don't have a problem with evangelizing, but I do have a problem with the folks who use trickery to get people (not saying that's your intention).

In my hometown they were having kids hand out these cards for a "free community theater show" with "local actors", a "mystery drama". Nothing on the glossy ticket said anything about it being religious...but, being a naturally suspicious person, I googled the phone number and discovered it was for a church. So I called them and asked them...and after wiggling for a bit, on my finally explicit asking they admitted it was a show about Jesus and was intended for conversion purposes. Boy did they get upset when I pointed out they were misleading people...

The Vatican did the same thing and made a fortune off of their tricks to deceive all their new Christians.
