I've been having a great time with tracts this Christmas! I have gave out over 50 bags with tracts and candy, mostly at drive-thrus. I believe that I only had at least one reject. These are places where I've left tracts. The one on the Target buggy is just for the photo. I gave out several tracts there on the Saturday before Christmas

Bro. Gary, Braylyn (my oldest son), and myself left on Friday to be at the State Fair of Texas Gospel Outreach on Saturday. We had an encouraging time! We gave out and left out tracts on the way to Dallas. The new "What Happens Aftet #Yolo?" tract was taken by several people. Chris took a Thank You tract in Canton when we stopped at a travel center. He recommended a good Mexican restuarant called Carmona's in Terrell. That was our next stop. It was good! I gave a Spanish Ten Commandments tract to Carlos, our server. Juan and two other employees took the What Happens After #Yolo? tract. Also on Terrell, we stopped to meet One Bro. Gary's customers who builds trailers for race cars. We arrived at Arnold's house around 4:30 that evening. Carl Kalbfliesh, his wife Mande, and Brendan met us there for a good time of fellowship and a prayer meeting.
On Saturday, we arrived at the booth around 9:30. We had a great time of ministry throughout the day. There were so many that took the "million dollar eye test". We had several to repent and put their trust in Jesus. Stdents from the Gospel For Asia School of Discipleship worked the booth with us throughout the day in two hour shifts. They were from all over the country. One student, Grady, was from Australia. Many took tracts all day long. We had some very profiting conversations where seeds were planted. Mary Ann prayed after talking with one of the students. She had been in rehab. She was really broken. Brandon prayed when another student took him through the law. Rafael and Sandra really listened as Gary witnessed to them. Tristan prayed with Gary, also. He took in everything that was said. I spoke with Jason, who is the son of a preacher. Carlos thought he was going to Heaven without repenting. Adam sai that Jesus didn't mention Heaven. I quoted a few scriptures to show that he did. One man tore up a Ten Commandments tract and threw it on the counter. Here are few others who we talked to: William, Alex, Evonne, Daniel, Jerry, Diane, and Ricky.
It was great witnessing with Carl, Arnold, and Craig from Bezeugen Ministries. I am so thankful to be a part of the ministry. We can't wait till next year!

We visited Scott and Lisa. Lisa came to church last week with her Uncle David. Scott said that he would come in the morning with Lisa. He is an alcholic. Please pray that he will get saved. We stopped at a few more houses, seeing some of our old neighbors.

A short time later someone suggested, “why not a tract for you’re welcome also?” We werepraying about the idea when I had a meeting with two gentlemen with the Texas Alliance for Raceway Ministries (www.txarm.org). They described that their ministry is about servant evangelism. They are there to serve. But they are also there to share the Gospel. As we talked about what partnership the Lord may have for us together, I suggested that we could develop a racing trivia tract as well as a “You’re Welcome” tract that they could hand to people who thank them for their service. Both of these tracts were developed and distributed at the Texas Motor Speedway at an Indy Race the beginning oh June 2014.
With that in mind, we then create a different front for the tract and printed it for use in the Bezeugen Tract Club. The tract will be released to the entire tract club in the September mailing. However due to a mistake that was made it is referenced in the letter for the August mailing but only some of the members of the tract club actually received it in that mailing.
So whether you are serving someone or simply saying “You’re Welcome” after they thank you, may the You’re Welcome tract be used to glorify God and share the Gospel with the lost!

We had a great time at the local firework show. We had a team of 6 which included my 14 year old son, Bro. Gary, Bro. Garan, Bro. Charles, and his daughter. We were able to give out around 1900 tracts. I gave tracts to people who have taken them from me @ Walmart. I also saw Chris, who was dressed like a woman when we gave a tract to him on a street ministry night. I gave him and his two friends the Are You A Good American? tract. Bro. Charles and his daughter crossed the bridge to work the other levy. Most people took the tracts. We only had a handful of rejects. Several who had been drinking took tracts. On the way back to our vehicles, a train had stopped. This gave us opportunity to give out a few more until the train started moving again. What a way to end the holiday weekend!

We pray that the John 3:16 Gospel tract will lead to many conversations about Jesus and eternal life only found through him!

We had an interesting time on street ministry last night. We arrived at the bar a little after 10:00. A few tracts were rejected at first. Bro. Charles and I took a shift each with the cross. I had put the name of Jesus on the front. The business manager came out and talked with us without incident. Bro. Gary talked with a taxi driver for a few minutes. I talked to a young man that had played a set at the bar. He said that he played in clubs and played in church on Sunday as a hired musician. He obviously isn't in it for ministry, but for the money. While Bro. JJ was preaching, the bar manager approached us. He said that he didn't want us yelling at his customers. He called the police. This is the first time that the police have been called at this bar. Six police showed up to handle the complaint. They said that we were on private property across from the bar. We have always understood that we had about a three foot right away near the street. We will check out every thing before we go back. We also will record what we say next time in case they falsely accuse us for saying something that we didn't. We aren't like the "shock and awe" guys who get rough with the people. The police stayed for thirty minutes after they talked with us. I gave out 5 or 6 tracts while they were there. Prayerfully, we will have more one on ones next time. Next month, we are gong to the local Fourth of July Fireworks display. This is mainly a tract event with one on ones.

This is an exert from "How To Bring Men To Christ" by R. A. Torrey:
But how is one to get a love for souls? This question is easily answered. First of all a love for souls like very other grace of Chris- tian character is the work of the Holy Spirit. If then we are conscious that we do not have that love for souls that we should have, the first thing to do is to go to God and humbly confess this lack in our lives and ask Him by His Hol y Spirit to supply that which we so sorely need and expect Him to do it (i. Jno. V. 14, I5i Phil. iv. 19). In the second place Jesus Christ had an intense love tor souls (Matt, xsiii. 37; Luke xix. 10), and intimate and constant companionship with Him will impart to our lives this grace hich was so prominent in His. In the third place feelings are the outcome of thoughts. If we desire any given feeling in our lives we should dwell upon the thoughts which are adapted to produce that feeling. If any saved person will dwell upon the peril and wretchedness of any man out of Christ and the worth of his soul in God's sight as seen in the death of God's Son to save him, a feeling of intense desire for that man's salvation is almost certain to follow. In the fourth place, reflection upon our own ruined and unhappy condition without Christ and the great sacrifice that Christ made to save us, is sure to fill our hearts with a desire to bring others to the Saviour that we have found.

I heard that tomorrow is Star War's Day, so I gave out a few Star War's millions from Gospel Tract Planet. Chris took one at Ross. We went to Petco to get an item for our new puppy that we are getting tomorrow. Quinn and Dravin, two employees, took one there. At Walmart, a man who was asking for money at the front took one. He said that he was saved, but I think he was using that as part of his presentation. Several others took them inside and out in the parking lot.So many need the Gospel! The hour is urgent! Let's pray for workers for the harvest and the fields of the harvest! May The Lord be with you!
Have you ever tested your "Dark Side?" Everyone has a Dark Side, but most people have no idea how dark it is. Let's take a look at yours... Have you ever lied, stolen (regardless of value), or looked with lust? Jesus said "whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart." Guilt results in an eternal Hell because God is Holy.
Imagine a man in a courtroom; a criminal guilty of serious crimes. He is tried, convicted, and sentenced to life or a fine of a MILLION DOLLARS. when the judge steps down and pays his fine! Even though he's still guilty, his fine has been paid and justice has been satisfied! The judge was both merciful and just. This is what Jesus did for sinners. While fully God and fully man, Jesus lived a sinless life. In love He took the wrath of God and penalty for sin on Himself on the Cross. Then He rose from the grave, showing the penalty paid.
What should you do? God commands you to repent and trust in Jesus ALONE. Don't trust in "good works." Cry out to God for mercy and put your faith in Jesus, confessing and forsaking sins. God will change your heart so you will desire Holiness. Make peace with God today; you may not have tomorrow. Eternity is worth much more than a MILLION DOLLARS!

We were at Walmart tonight when our shifting cable broke in our van. Our friend from church, who is a mechanic, came to our rescue to give it a temporary fix. As we were going back into Walmart to get a few groceries, I saw two Mormon elders who were leaving. I approached them as they were going to their bikes. I recognized Elder Bloodworth, who I gave a Hoppy Easter tract to at McDonald's before Easter. He remembered me. Elder Mobley was the name of the other. I presented them both with a Spurgeon Million from Gospel Tract Planet. I told them that I was an evangelical Christian; that the tract presented the law and the gospel. I also told them that we did street ministry. We didn't debate doctrine or get into an argument. Please pray that's these two men will receive the truth and get born again!
In Walmart, I gave out several tracts. We ran into a man who I met there a while back. I told him what happened with the Mormons. He was well versed amount Mormon teachings and has witnessed to some. I gave him an invitation to join the Bezeugen Tract Club. A dentist, who I know, came up while we were talking. Later, he asked what we were doing. I was able to gib him a million dollar bill, too. He is Catholic, but he goes to a Church of Christ Bible study.
Afterwards, we went to Taco Bell. I gave Alfred a ManCard. He said that he was a Christian and that he was going through a divorce after 21 years of marriage. I said a quick prayer for him and his wife there. I also gave millions to several employees. As we were leaving, I gave a tract to a Buddhist college student named Sanjae. He is from Nepal. He said that there were Muslims, Buddhist, Hindus, and Christians there. Please pray that he will be saved through reading the tract. How did you do in witnessing today?

Download the app. Then load your favorite tracts into the app. Have fun putting a smile on people’s face by printing them a tract. Take a moment to share the Gospel with them when handing them the “printed” tract!

Easter is coming! This season presents opportunities to witness about the resurrection. The "Hoppy Easter" tract is one of my favorites to use. It can be ordered through onemilliontracts.com by going to the Bezeugen tracts - http://www.shop.onemilliontracts.com/Bezeugen-Gospel-Tracts_c28.htm
. Here is what the tract says on the back:
It's not a misprint. It really says "Hoppy Easter" Why? At Easter time many people decorate eggs and hunt for them. Others stand in line at the mall to see the Easter bunny. Yet, Easter is not about eggs and bunnies. The true message of Easter is that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, and that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). Christ had to die to pay for the sins of the whole world. Let's see if you needed him to die for you. The Bible says that it is appointed once to die and then the judgment (Hebrews 9:27). Ever told a lie? Stolen anything? Hated someone? Christ calls hatred murder (Matthew 5:21). That's just three of the Ten Commandments. Would you be innocent or guilty? Heaven or Hell? Because God is just, there must be a payment for your sin. Either you can pay by spending eternity in Hell or you can receive, by repentance and faith in Jesus Christ the free gift that God has for you (Mark 1:15, Ephesians 2:8-9). Instead of "Hoppy Easter", repent of your sin and put your trust in Jesus Christ. He will grant you eternal life. Happy Easter!

We had a great time with tracts today. We were in town for several hours. My 8 year old son and I gave out around 60 Lucky Bucks, Are You Lucky tracts, and million dollar bills while waiting on my wife & daughter at a shopping center. Courtney asked me for money, but he got a million instead. He said that he was a Christian, but found out that he wasn't when I took him through the commandments. I gave out several tracts at our mall. I gave one to a young man named Innocent. I had to ask him if he stood before God, would he be "innocent" or guilty! At one other stop, Marcus read the back of his tract out loud in front of several people. When it came to the part about adultery, he said "I've done that!". I asked him to think about what he read. At Walmart, I gave a tract to Casey. He said that he played music in church. He thanked me for giving our tracts. I invited him to join the Bezeugen Tract Club. It was a good day!

We had a great time last night, giving out 1500 tracts in 2 hours. Bro. Charles, Bro. Donnie, and I only went 1/2 of a mile during this time. Bro. Gary showed up at the end to give out a few. He had been on a Valentine date with his bride. I went on one side of the road while Bro. Charles and Bro. Donnie hit the other. There were people everywhere! Some were tailgating. Others were cooking out in front of their campers. Some were just waiting with their families for the parade to start. Dorian was the first one to get a tract. I gave him the "On a scale of 0 - 10" tract. He said 0. The 2nd man who I offered a tract to said "Don't need it! I'm an atheist." I said "Ok" and got back to tracting. There were so many responses. I only had two rejects for the night. Everyone else took the tracts. I was able to give 9 tracts to Hindus. I talked to one man named Varoon. Hosea asked me to pray for him after I talked with Chris, Charles, and him. When I offered a tract to a man named Michael, he said " If it has to do with religion, I don't want it" This opened the door for a good conversation. I was able to take him through the good person test. He took a tract at the end of our talk. Paula said "9" when I gave her the "On a scale of 0 - 10". She asked for me to put her on our prayer list because she was in need of a kidney. I also gave a tract to her daughter, Amethyst. Several people that were drunk took tracts. I pray that they read them when they sobered up. I showed a free people the new tract app from Living Waters. I received one of the tracts for that app in the mail on Friday. Carol said that she wasn't a Christian after taking a tract. I ran into several people that I know. One woman recognized me from my work place. As I gave tracts to some of the families, their children would reach out to take one. I keep a wallet full of tracts and cards in my front pocket. It fell out of my pocket when we were walking back to our vehicles before the parade started. Three people pointed out that in had lost it. I picked it up and gave them tracts. I hope that we can get more tracts out at next year's parade. Please pray for the seeds to bloom into salvation for those who received them!
