Sharing tracts online is a great way to share your faith in cyberspace. Bezeugen Ministries have several tracts that can be downloaded to post with hashtags on social media. I like to see what is trending on Twitter and "hijack" the hashtags. Sometimes people will respond. Just tonight, I posted the Play By The Rules tract to the CavsvsCeltics hashtag and 247 people had seen it in 30 minutes! The Yolo tract can be shared with #Yolo. The opportunities never end! Check out the link, pick a few, and start sharing online! http://www.bezeugen.org/tracts/

We had a great time at the Mardi Gras Parade outreach in Monroe, La. Christy, Chip, and Chris, who had never done an event like this, came with us. They were encouraged as they watched us for a while and gave out tracts with us. Bro. Marshall, Bro. Charles and my son Braylyn were there, too. I would guess that we gave out around 1200 or more tracts as we went through the crowds. My best conversation was with DeShawn, a young man he said that he didn't know where he was going when he died. I asked him to think about our conversation. I talked with several who had been drinking. Carl quoted a bible verse and said that he was raised up knowing about church, but didn't go to church. Reece took Seinfeld millions from us and gave them to people passing by. He said that he only drinks on his birthday and Mardi Gras, "but other than that, the Lord is my savior." Please pray for the seeds that were planted!

Our next big event will be this Saturday in Monroe. We have done this outreach for the last several years, giving out nearly 2000 tracts each time. We aim to get more out this year. We are praying for a larger team. Two friends who have never been out like this will be joining us. They are involved in jail ministry and one on one witnessing. Also, the youth from Brother Charles' church may be coming. Please pray that the seeds that will be planted will produce fruit!

As we did Christmas shopping today, there were so many opportunities for leaving and giving out tracts. Most people won't reject a tract when you say "Merry Christmas"! A Hindu, a Muslim, and two homosexuals were among those who took tracts. 5 employees at Raising Canes and 4 at the Chinese restaurant took tracts, too. I gave tracts to every cashier where we made purchases (except at the Christian bookstore!). I made a warm-up challenge on the tract club Facebook page for next week's Christmas Eve Scavenger hunt. I did at least 6 of them.

Carl and I had a great time sharing the Gospel at the State Fair Of Texas Gospel Outreach on Saturday. My son and Gary Lively came from Louisiana Jim Wolfe and Ash Price came from the Texarkana area. Craig come out to be with us, too. I met Keith Neds who witnesses with us. Students from the Gospel for Asia joined us in shifts throughout the day, helping us pass out over 5,000 tracts and taking people through the million dollar eye test. We had many conversations that had some thinking and some walk away when they found out we were talking about "religion". One woman told be that she was Jewish and walked away. A lesbian said that she was going to fly when I asked how she was going to Heaven. Maggie, Trey, and their friend listened to us as we took them through the law and explain the Gospel. Here are a few other names of those who I talked with: two young women named Hunter, Amber, Allison, DJ, Mer, and John. This is the 4th year that I have went to this outreach. Please pray the seeds that were planted.
