Saturday Night Evangelism - Fourth Of July Fireworks - Monroe, La. - July 6, 2013

The fireworks display was moved to downtown Monroe this year to coincide with the Downtown River Market. There were different vendors  set up for shop and bands playing. We met around 8:00 across from the corner where I had my accident over twenty years ago.
Bro. Charles, Bro. Gary, Bro. J. J, and I were on hand, giving out around 450 tracts. We started out at the levee, where some were gathering for the fireworks. Bro. J.J. had one on ones with Derek and Edward. I gave a tract to a Hindu man that was walking with his daughter. We gave  out tracts as we walked toward the River Market. At one spot, there was a band playing outside. I gave a tract to a man who had a beer in his hand. Many drinkers were recipients of tracts this night. They don't know it, but they have an invisible sign over them that says "Give me a tract!" 
Bro. J. J. and I split up near the end to give out tracts before the fireworks started. I saw a friend that I haven't seen in a while. I was best man in his wedding. He was there with two of his children. I gave him a tract and got his number to catch up with him later.
I talked with Kevin, who didn't take a tract. He sounded like he was a Hebrew Israelite. I tried to take him through the Ten Commandments, but he side stepped my questions. I shook his hand and went back to tracting. 
Bro. Gary and Bro. Charles are Gospel tract machines! They came back to get more tracts after they gave out their stacks! We had a great time at this event! I am so thankful for men like Bro. Charles, Bro. Gary, and Bro. J. J., who have a burden and a zeal for the lost. 
Prayerfully, we will have more with us next year!

Gospel Tract Spotlight - It's 2am....

This is a brand new tract that is in the August mailing from the Bezeugen Tract Club. It is a great conversation starter. People need to be warned that their spiritual house is on fire. 

house on fire front iconWhat if in a very real way, your "spiritual house" were on fire? Would you want to be warned? Just like waking you from your sleep to warn you of a house fire, someone cared enough to give you this card to warn you that, "It is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment" (Hebrews 9:27). Have you ever lied? Stolen? Hated? Jesus calls hatred murder (Matthew 5:22)! Ever used God's name carelessly? That is blasphemy (Exodus 20:7). If God judges you by this standard, will you be innocent or guilty? Heaven or Hell? God does not want you to go to Hell (1 Timothy 2:4, 2 Peter 3:9). Two thousand years ago, God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to earth. Jesus being fully God and fully man; had no sin and lived a perfect life, fulfilled the Law and then willingly became the perfect sacrifice for the sin of the whole world. He died on a cross to pay for your sin (1 John 2:2). Jesus rose from the dead, defeating sin, death and the devil. "Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you" (Ephesians 5:14). If you repent (turn from your sin) and believe the Gospel, God will forgive your sin and give you eternal life (Mark 1:15).        80-BEZEUGEN        (802-393-8436

Evangelism Event - Fourth of July Fireworks Display In Monroe, La. / July 6, 2013

This Saturday, the Monroe Jaycees will be putting on the annual fireworks display. We have went to this event for the last two years, distributing tracts and having one on one conversations. We are going to meet around 7:30 while the crowd gathers to view this display. There will be about 6 or 7 of us going. Please pray that we have divine appointments. It is a great blessing to have the freedom to witness about the saving power of Jesus Christ!

Using The “Are You A Good American? Tract / Happy Fourth of July - 2013

I posted this originally on the As You Go blog from Bezeugen Ministries. 

I have been having a great time using this tract. Today, I gave out a few while saying "Happy Fourth of July! I still have several left to pass out at our local fireworks display on Saturday. There are many opportunities to use this tract.
I gave one to a veteran one day at Walmart. I gave two to a man and his son. After the man read the tract, he walked by and said that he was guilty. They both thanked me for giving the tracts to them. Another man that works at Walmart said that his mother was a Christian, but he we was not born again. I asked him to read the message when he had the chance. Displays with the American flag are great places to leave this tract.
Thank The Lord for the freedom that we
have to share our faith in America. We can preach on the streets, hold up signs and crosses, give out tracts, and have one on ones with the lost. Let's take advantage of these precious freedoms everyday! We were set free to see others set free!
