The State Fair Of Texas Gospel Outreach - Oct. 19, 2019

Another State Fair Of Texas Gospel Outreach is in the books! As always, we had a great day of sharing the Gospel from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM. We had several new workers who were encouraged by the ministry of tracts and one on one witnessing. We probably gave out in between 5,000 and 6,000 tracts that included Minion millions, Uncle Sam millions, Are You A Good Person?, Get Out Of Hell Free, Yolo, Rock And Roll Trivia, May The Lord Be With You, The Ten Commandments, Play By The Rules, bookmarks, and several others. We took many through the Million Dollar Eye Test, showing the law and grace. Those who came through the day to man the booth were Carl, Craig, Arnold, Matthew, Jennifer, Scott, Hayden, Paige Cervantes, David Brock, Mary, Betty, Jim Wolfe, Emma, Rob and Rebecca (from Gospel For Asia), Jaba, Marti, Maria, Michelle, and Mark. We appreciate every one who came out to help! Please pray for fruit from this outreach!

We appreciate the partnership with the Full Gospel Businessmen's Fellowship and their hosting this booth every year at the State Fair of Texas. This is an event that with bathe in prayer for months in advance. Planning for us starts more than six months in advance working with them to reserve our date to staff the booth, then inviting people to attend, working out the logistics of the schedule, travel, etc. It's a great day of fellowship with good friends and new friends. People that come down Nimitz Blvd at the fair grounds are intrigued by the "million dollar question". Some will walk up and ask what it is. We explain it is a quick, painless test to establish the value of their eyes. They agree to continue. What they soon find is their eyes are valuable and their soul is even more valuable to them. It is interesting that no one argued with us about whether they even had a soul. They accepted that as fact.

Throughout the day we had the opportunity to hand out thousands of tracts. Some were read. Some people heard the Gospel verbally. Praise the Lord, some repented and trusted Christ. Others rejected the Gospel (at least for now) as evidenced by the torn up tract (pictured above) and some other tracts we saw disposed of in the garbage or littered on the ground. But we give thanks that they heard the Gospel even if (for now) they reject it.

Some who came to the booth indicate they know they will go to Heaven because they have repented of their sin and trusted Jesus. We often invite these to join the Bezeugen Tract Club and start receiving Gospel tracts each month so that they can share the Gospel. This year at least five people have joined the Bezeugen Tract Club since the fair that had come by that day! It is encouraging to us that they were encouraged!

My favorite part of the day is observing people share the Gospel sometimes for the first time. The booth provides a setting where people can practice witnessing. Below are some testimonials of the participants that staffed the booth.

This is from Paige Cervantes -

This year was so amazing! I saw God really speak to several people. Even though I witnessed a couple of people showing their hostility towards God, I had the privilege of witnessing to a lady (I’m going to butcher her name - Hepziba) who had never heard of Jesus and she wanted to put her faith in Jesus that night! I had Betty pray with her. God is so good! I met many born again Christians who thanked me for what this group was doing! God definitely heard my prayers for boldness because, even though I was a little nervous, I had so much confidence. I know it was God! All the glory goes to my Lord and King!!

(I have been on a spiritual high all week long!)

This is from Jim Wolfe -

I believe that the booth at the State fair provides a way to get the Gospel out to many people that may not hear the Good News of Jesus Christ any other way. I had several fruitful conversations with a variety of people. I am so grateful for those involved in providing us with an opportunity to share the gospel at such a large venue! Thank you so very much! May God Bless You!

From Mark.....It was a great pleasure going fishing for Jesus last Saturday. Also it was encouraging watching brothers and sisters in Christ at work. A special thanks to The Full Gospel organization and all leaders / organizers. Great job!!!

From Arnold....

We had great time at the fair. We had an opportunity to speak to many people about the gospel. Many seeds were planted and we’re asking the Holy Spirit to continue the work in these people’s heart. It was a great time of fellowship.

From Betty...

This was my first year to volunteer at the FGBMF Booth at the TEXAS STATE FAIR, 2019.

Other than trying to find my way through the massive Police street blockages to get to the Will Call Booth for our entry tickets, the whole experience was THRILLING. Leading a young lady in a Prayer for Salvation and celebrating with her for her Born Again new life in Christ was the high point of the event for me. Also confirming the salvation of a mother and her young son was so special, too. I enjoyed helping to pass out thousands of tracks to passers-by, also. I definitely want to volunteer again next year. Thank you for the excellent training and coordination of the volunteers. God Bless you for assuming these responsibilities and providing these opportunities to grow The Kingdom Family!

From Rob....

I very much appreciate the gospel outreach booth and the opportunity it affords for us to share Christ with thousands of people. Many people came to the booth and were genuinely interested in having spiritual conversations. In 2.5 hours, I was able to share the gospel personally with about 12-15 people, and several of them were responsive.

I asked one group of four boys where their souls would go when they die. One said, “I think it would just roam around,” another said, “I might go to hell,” and a third said, “reincarnation.” They were quite open to hearing the gospel, and I gave one of them a Bible. Two ladies I talked to were seeking and asked for us to follow up with them.

The Ark-La-Miss Fair Outreach - September 20, 2019

We had a great time sharing the Gospel at The Ark-La-Miss Fair in Monroe, La. last night. It was was a little slower than usual, but we probably gave out around 350 - 400. I saw a friend from school who I haven't seen in 30 years. His friend rejected tracts. I used the lie detector on 4 men, including Allen. About 20 Spanish millions and Minion pesos were taken. Maddox, who was with us for the first time, got hooked on giving out tracts. He and my son Hayden made a great team. There was 8 of us all together. Someone tore up a Rock & Roll Trivia tract. I used the Texting tract, saying 'This is the smallest iPhone." The Yolo tract was well received. Several Football Trivia tracts and The Great Pumpkin tracts were taken, too.

Kiss Concert Outreach - Sept. 7, 2019

We arrived at the stadium before the Kiss concert began. We gave out 11 tracts before being told by security that we couldn't do what we were doing because it was private property. The first one who took a tract worked at the stadium. He called security when he took his. We ate at Carl's Jr where Jason took a Rock and Roll Trivia tract. I told him what we we came to do. Please pray for those who took the tracts. On the way back at the Ruston Walmart, several employees took the Yolo tract. 5 Spanish millions were received. Aj, the door greeter, took the Rock & Roll Trivia tract.

The 2019 CenturyLink Star Spangled Spectacular In Monroe, La. - July6, 2019

We had a great time of evangelism at the 2019 CenturyLink Star Spangled Spectacular tonight in Monroe, La. Thanks to all who prayed!  My youngest son and I gave out nearly 750 tracts and bookmarks with  only two rejected. One family remembered receiving Minion millions last year. Two lesbian couples took bookmarks. One man, Josh,  remembered me giving him a tract at Little Caesar's about two months ago. We saw my friend, Theresa, who was saved a year after me. She frequented the same night club that I was at the night I wrecked my truck on New Year's eve '92. I invited several people to join the tract club. We saw several people who have got glasses where I work. 4 men took the Rock and Roll trivia tract. I explained to a few what we do. Please pray for the seeds that were planted tonight! Let's go with the Gospel!

Weekend Witnessing - May 31 - June 1, 2019


 I had a great night sharing the Gospel with tracts. Jared recognized me at Captain D's from giving him tracts at Walmart. I remembered our conversation. He was wearing a Star Wars shirt that night and the same tonight. He took more tracts to hand out. At Dollar Tree, Gary took the Yolo tract. He said that he was looking for a church. Devin took one, also. He wasn't sure where he was going when he died. Several others took Yolo tracts. Outside, Paxton took a tract. We talked for  over 20 minutes. He said that he was saved two months ago. He had just got out of jail recently. I gave him my card. He said that God was working on him.


I gave out two Spanish Yolo tracts at Walmart when I heard two people speaking Spanish. Laura, a lesbian, took The Greatest Gift tract. A man took a Yolo tract in the parking lot

Saturday Evangelism


I went with my family to the new Five Below store. Mike rejected a tract. I left one in a gift card display and a phone case. Two cashiers took tracts when we were leaving. Outside, Bryant took an Eternity tract. Luke took the John 3:16 tract. At Walmart, I gave a Got Peace?  tract to Burrell. He tried to give it back, but I asked him to read it. He said that he didn't need a Gospel. He said that he was in the army and had killed 15 terrorist. It looks like he needed peace. Henry, who had been drinking, took the Eternity tract. I discovered that Junior was a Christian when I gave him the Spanish Yolo tract. I mistook Nate and Kevin for being Spanish. They took the Got Peace? tract. Two of four Spanish men walking into Walmart took the Spanish Yolo. I also did Twitter evangelism, too.

Easter Evangelism With The Hoppy Easter Tract

Easter is a great time to share your faith with the lost. For several years, Bezeugen Ministries has been sending the Hoppy Easter tract in the mailing for Easter month. One of the easiest ways to give someone this tract is by saying "Happy Easter!". I have gave out many at the stores this year. We used then in our door to door outreach this Saturday before Easter Sumday. Hoppy - I mean Happy Easter!!
