This Week In Witnessing (7/16/12 - 7/20/12)

Monday - AM- I parked in the library parking lot beside the loan store where I pay my electric bill. When I came out, I saw people in front of the library. I went over and spoke with Paul first after giving him a million dollar bill. He saw himself guilty after I took him through 3 of the commandments. Quincy said that he was going to Heaven. When I took him through the law, he said that he was going to hell. I challenged him to read Romans 10 and 1 John 5. I talked with Smiley at the Thomas Rd. NowSave. I told him to keep on smiling. He said that I has made his day.
After work, I gave a Bible Belt tract to the woman at the register in the lawn and garden dept. of Walmart. I went the opposite direction of where I parked when I bought a gas card for the pumps. I gave Destiny and Corey a million dollar bill tract. Corey had her hair dyed in wild colors and several body piercings in her face. Pray that the Lord will speak to these young women.

Tuesday - AM - At the I-20 Nowsave, I gave 2 million dollar bills to men that were in front of me in line. When the woman at the register saw me doing this, she asked for one. I had gave her one about a month or so ago. She is a Hindu. As Keith was leaving the store, I gave him a tract. We talked for about 3 minutes.
PM - After work, I went to the Monroe Walmart. I gave Miguel a Trivia Del Futbol tract. I gave a million dollar bill to Lamarcus, who was working at the self-checkout. In the parking lot, I spoke with Larry. He was parked beside me. I asked him to read the Bible that night.

Wednesday - AM- I went to pick up tracts at the post office. I gave the Bible Belt to a man inside.
PM- After work, I went to the car wash beside where I had parked. I had left two tracts in the change machines that morning. They were on the ground. I motioned to a man that was driving off with a cup on the top of his car. I gave him a tract, How Much Would You Bet?, when he got out. I explained what the tract was about. He said that he wasn't saved. I challenged him to read Romans 10 and 1 John 5.
When I was going home, Quez and Kevin were standing in the driveway that leads to our home. Kevin asked me for a quarter. I gave him 50 cents and a million dollar bill.

Thursday - At lunch, Matt was walking on the sidewalk in front of where I work. I gave him a million dollar bill. He said that he was going to Heaven. J pray that he reads the back of the tract. As I was leaving the bread store, a young Muslim man receive a million while he was on the phone. The woman behind the counter at Circle K took one, too. Before going into the Sterlington Chevron with my children this evening, I gave Scotty a million dollar bill.

Friday - AM- At the I-20 NowSave, I offered a Bible Belt Tract to a man outside. He said that he had been saved for a long time. I gave a How Much Will You Bet? Tract to a man that was walking out of the store. Near the coolers, I gave a tract to Monquez. He asked if I had singled him out. I told him that I had gave a tract to the man that was leaving the store. He saw me give a tract to Ladarrius in the front. David took a tracy as he was going in. At the pumps, Brad told me that he was a devout catholic. Marcus opened the door of his work truck which gave me the opportunity to give him a million dollar bill.

PM- At Walmart, I gave a Where Will You Spend Eternity? tract to Tim. Marcello and Carlos took the Trivia Del Futbol tract in the clothing department.
I gave Clay a How Much Would You Bet? tract when he choose a beer.
At Fred's, I gave a How Much Would You Bet? tract to Quincy at the front. I talked with Jordan when I gave him a Bible Belt tract. He is hitchhiking to central Louisiana. I also gave him a Where Will You Spend Eternity? Tract (which is in this month's Bezeugen Tract Club shipment).

Where are the lost? Everywhere! I get excited when I witness! There are times when I wish I had more time to witness when I am at different places. Who is going to tell them about Jesus? Who is going to reach out with the Gospel to the perishing? It's got to be believers who are obedient to God's commands! Paul told Agrippa: Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision: (Acts 26:19 KJV)
What has God told Christians who have been washed In the blood of the lamb? Go! We have to go with the Gospel everyday, every place! We have to tell them! Mark Cahill said this:

"It's not how can I share my faith, It's how can I not share my faith."

We can't afford not to witness! If we keep silent, more will plunge into hell! If we don't move toward them, the cults will! The reason I post these witnessing encounters is to encourage others in soul-winning! This also encourages me! We must ask the Lord to lead us to divine appointments! Let's run after the lost!

Fourth Of July Fireworks Display / Monroe,La. -July 7, 2012

Before I made it to meet up with everyone, I stopped in Sterlington to give tracts to Mike and his fiancé where that had a firework stand. They were waiting for their fireworks and tent to be picked up. I had met Mike at the laundry mat last week. He is from Sibley, which is near New Orleans. I wanted to make sure he had got a tract before he left. While I was talking to him, his fiancé came out of their travel trailer. I gave her the Bible Belt tract, too. I gave an Are You A Good Person tract to Mike's grandson. When Mike saw it, he said that he had picked one up at the gas station. It was one that Bro. J.J. had placed on the gas pump! Tracts do get taken!
We met a little after 7:30 behind the golf course of Forsythe Park. The Monroe Jaycees were shooting off the fireworks on the Ouachita River. The crowd was gathering on the levee and at the Forsythe Park. We passed out tracts as we walked toward the levy. Bro. Gary gave a tract to a deaf man. We gave out tracts to some young people in the park. Everyone split up in different directions. Most of the people were taking the tracts. We were giving out a lot of The Bible Belt Tracts. I gave out the rest of the Celebrate Freedom tracts, except for one that I found in my pocket later.
One of the highlights was talking with a Jewish man named Tripper. I gave him a tract to start the conversation. Bro. J.T. talked with him about Isaiah 53, Psalm 22, and the prophecies that pointed to Jesus being the Messiah. He was real open. Bro. J.T. gave him a This Was Your Life tract, also. Please pray for Tripper.
I talked with John, who was a Vietnam vet. He said that talked to God everyday. He thanked me for giving him the tract. Bro.J.T. gave tracts to 3 men who were Muslims.
Walking back to where our vehicles were parked, we handed out tracts as we went. Then, we had to wait for traffic to die down in order to leave. While waiting, I gave out around 20 million dollar bill tracts to some who were in vehicles. One woman who was in a convertible offered me frisbees and can huggers. I said " I'll give you a million for them!" as i gave her the tract. Then, Bro. J.T. gave her The Bible Belt tract. The frisbees and can huggers were from a bar in Monroe called the cave. That woman could have been one of the owners!
I would like to thank all the men that came out to evangelize at this event: Bro. McGuire, Bro. J.T., Bro. Ian, Bro. Garan, Bro. Gary, and Simon. Pray that we can see some fruit from our labors!

This Week In Witnessing (7/2/12 - 7/7/12)

Tricia, a carhop at Sonic, took a Celebrate Freedom tract. Jamal got one, too, while getting cash from an atm at the Chevron.

I gave a Celebrate Freedom tract to Chris and his co-worker. They worked for an automotive shop. That evening at the mall, I gave a tract to Isaiah. He said that he didn't know where he was going when he died . I challenged him to read Romans 10. I gave three Celebrate Freedom tracts out at bus stop in front of the mall. One man was interested in ordering tracts. At the Dollar General, Derek was the first to get The Bible Belt tract in Sterlington.

He had a broke arm. I heard Cedric's name called as he walked by. The next time I saw him, I said his name and gave him a Celebrate Freedom tract.
Lester and Terry took the Bible Belt tract after I got our van to pick up my wife at the front.
This is got to be the highlight of the week! We went to McDonald's for lunch before I went to work. I was putting our trash in the can when a man who I was going to give a tract to spoke to me. He asked if I was a doctor from the hospital that is across the street. I told him what kind of work I do. He said that he grew up in the optical business. His name is Mohammed. He is a Muslim. He asked about the million dollar peso that was in my pocket( I offered it to a man named Mark who I thought was Spanish). I told him that I gave out tracts everywhere I go. He said that he was studying about the Trinity. He was real sincere and seemed to be seeking. I gave him several tracts and the link to the blog. This is most likely the best conversation that I have had with a Muslim. Please pray that Mohammed will put his faith and trust in Jesus!

Friday - I gave out 2 tracts before work and 4 at the hospital while visiting a sick co-worker.
After work, Fernando and Antonio were waiting in line at the money service center in Walmart. Fernando is catholic. His brother is a pastor in Monterrey, Mexico. I gave them million dollar pesos, the Trivia Del Futbol tract , and a Gospel of John in Spanish. I also spoke to Octavio, who is a Christian.

Witnessing should be the normal for the Christian who wants to be used of the Lord. There are so many that need to be saved, but time is short. Let's be bold and strong for our Savior so others can know Him! Happy Soul-Winning!

Gospel Tract Spotlight: The Bible Belt

Bro. J.T. Strong has wrote a new Gospel tract for those here in the south who have a profession of faith, but are not really saved. In witnessing, we run into many who say that they are Christians, but their lips don't match there lives. He had these made through Custom Tract Source. The tract can be
viewed and ordered here:

This is how the back of the tract reads:

In the "Bible Belt" multitudes claim to be Christians. However, Jesus said, Not every one that saith unto me Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven (Mt. 7:21). Has a supernatural change occurred in your heart that caused you to hate sin and love God? Many say, "I am saved by faith not by works!" We are saved by grace alone through faith alone in the finished work of Jesus Christ alone (Eph. 2:8-9), but Grace gives us the desire and power to overcome sin (Rom. 6:1, 14; Titus 2:12-14). When we are saved by grace God changes our hearts and desires (Eph. 2:12-13; 2 Cor. 5:17). Many reply, "But I know in my heart that I am saved" Jeremiah 17:9 says "The heart is deceitful above all things." Sadly, many will spend eternity in hell who thought that they were "saved" but were deceived. Some say "But I believe!" Are you sure that you believe? The Bible says believers will be conformed to Jesus (Rom. 8:29). Are you becoming more like Jesus or the world? Those that are friends of the world are enemies of God (James 4:4)? Christians do not live a life of sin. (drunkenness, drug abuse, sexual immorality, pornography, lies, stealing, homosexuality, violence, abortion, etc.) [Gal. 5:19-21; 1 Cor. 6:9-11; Heb. 12:5-11]. Although not without sin, believers don't live in continual, willful sin (1 Jn. 1:8-10; 1 Jn. 3:6-9). Please read First John. If you are not a Christian according to the Bible, then you are not a true Christian. Turn from your sins today and trust Jesus as the only sacrifice for your sins. Jesus alone can free you from a life of sin, save you from eternity in hell, and grant you everlasting life.

This Week In Witnessing (6/24- 6/29)

Monday - At the I-20 NowSave, I gave a tract to Anthony. He was in a halfway house. He was going back to south Louisiana when he got out. He said that he didn't know where he was going when he died. Dan also received a tract. I gave a Trivia Del Futbol tract to Fernando, Arturo, and Hosea at Walmart on lunch. I talked with Nick and Jamichael, too. I challenged Jamichael to read Romans 10. After work, I gave another Trivia Del Futbol tract to Spanish man who was on his phone while walking into Walmart.

Tuesday - After work, I did what I call a Walmart walk-about. I talked with Hosea and gave him a Spanish tract. Two employees, Dexter and Andre, received the Are You A Good Person tract. Dexter remembered getting a Mancard several months ago. Keontae, another employee, said that he was a Christian.

Wednesday - Walmart has been my hot spot for witnessing this week. I gave a tract to Shon by the laundry soap. I spoke with Ryan while giving him a tract. At the checkout, I asked Luke about the tattoo on his arm. It was "I am my beloved's and He is mine" in Hebrew. He said that he had it because he is a Christian. I am trying to use more things like the tattoo to start conversations with people.

Thursday - I took a vacation day to take my wife to a doctor appointment. While we we there, a man named Marshall sat beside me. We talked about the number of people that were there. He talked about lot of people being in Chicago at a certain place. He said that is was enough people three where you could probably step on to get to Heaven. This opened up a brief conversation. I gave a tract to him and his lady friend. I placed several tracts around the clinic. I spoke with Allen, a Spanish man that had fractured his foot when he fell through a roof. I found out that he was a Christian who listens to some of the same Spanish Christian music that I listen to. At the Dollar General, I asked a man about the barcode tattoo that he had on his neck. He said that it was just a tattoo. He took a Are You A Good Person tract.

Friday - Alfredo and his friend received a Trivia Del Futbol tract after getting breakfast at the I-20 NowSave. After work, I gave one to Fernando at Walmart.

Saturday - Walking into Walmart that afternoon, I gave 2 Trivia Del Futbol tracts to a Spanish couple. Inside, after handing a man a tract, he said that was from Heaven, was a lone star, and from one race. He said that he didn't have time to talk. You will meet all kinds of people when out witnessing. You never know what to expect sometimes.
Steve Sanchez met this guy while witnessing at Venice Beach in California:

We have to be patient when dealing with those who aren't saved.
The fruit of the Spirit should be in operation in our lives at all times.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. (Galatians 5:22, 23 KJV)
Will someone see Jesus in you this week?
