Christmas Tracting 2014

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

Tract Idea For Christmas

 This requires Christmas ziplock bags, candy, and tracts. Fill the bags with candy and at least one tract. Take them to Christmas parades and festivities, These are great to give out to people working at drive-thru windows, also.
I did this last year. I gave out about 50 bags at our local Christmas parade. All items in the photo were purchased at Dollar Tree.

Happy Thanksgiving! - 2014


 Praise ye the LORD . O give thanks unto the LORD ; for he is good : for his mercy endureth for ever . Psalms 106:1 

One man said that "Thanksgiving is thanks-living!" We should be thankful to The Lord in our everyday living, giving Him the glory and honor that is due to His Name. We can so this, also, by being a witness everyday. I had a great time giving out several Thanksgiving tracts this season. The Give Thanks tract from Bezeugen Ministries was in the tract club for the 2nd year. One Million Tracts has the Turkey Trillion, I've got a few more of them to give out. Let's give thanks by sharing the Gospel with the lost! 

The Tractcracker!

My 8 year old son left this one at Walmart onTuesday. There are so many places to leave tracts during the holiday season. Find an unique place to leave a tract today!

Tracts For The Holidays

Are you ready for witnessing throughout Thanksgiving and Christmas? These two holidays offer many opportunities to share our faith! The “Give Thanks” tract is an excellent tract to give out for Thanksgiving. Four tracts were sent out in the December Bezeugen Tract Club. The Legend Of The Candy Cane was put into bookmark form, also, to be used for Christmas. Prayerfully, we can show somebody the real Reason for the season! These tracts can be ordered by going to onemilliontracts.com, click on Bezeugen Gospel Tracts, and scroll down till you find the title of the tract that you want to order. Tis’ the season to keep on giving out tracts!

The State Fair Of Texas Gospel Outreach - Oct. 18, 2014

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!

Delayed To Meet Demarte

Do you believe that delays could mean that a divine appointment is about to take place? I was delayed from getting off of work on time by two customers this evening. I needed to go to Lifeway before going home. After getting what I needed there, I slipped in to Bed, Bath, and Beyond to get a phone charging cord. Antonio helped me to find one. I gave him a "What happens after #YOLO? tract. I stopped at the Circle K to get gas. When going inside to pay, I got behind Demarte in line. The woman in front of him at the counter couldn't find her debit card. This gave me time to talk with Demarte, who is a high school senior. Take a guess at what tract I gave him. I asked him "What happens after you die?" He said that we don't know. "It's up to 'the Man'. We don't know till we get there." I asked him, "Isn't that gambling?" He agreed. I told him the illustration about the 10 speed limit signs, using Hwy. 165 as the road. Please pray that Demarte repents and puts his trust in Jesus!

The Ark-La-Miss Fair Outreach - Sept. 19, 2014

We had a good night at the Ark-La-Miss fair with 5 of us giving out around 600 tracts in two hours. Rob, Braylyn, Steven, Jonathan, and I were on hand for this event.
There were many there for the first Friday night. Two tracts were well received. The What Happens After #Yolo tract was a hit with the young people. Almost everyone who took one knew what YOLO means. Some smiled when they were offered this tract. A few said that they didn't know what happens after living once. The $1,000,000 Eye Test was a good one to use, too. It is based on the $1,000,000 Eye Test booth at the State Fair Of Texas Outreach, where we will be on October the 19th. I would ask people to take the test when they read the tract. One young man said that he needed to get his eyes checked! I was able to ask a few about how valuable their eye sight is and how more valuable there soul is. We gave out three of the Spanish Ten Commandments tract. 3 young Christian woman told us that they were glad we were out there. I gave them 3 tracts each and invitations to join the tract club. I was able to take Michael, Bryson, and Mickey through the good person test. Each one said that they would be guilty and go to hell. I used the illustration about going through 10 speed limit signs over the limit and being taken to court. I used the street at the front of the fair as where they broke the law. Rob and I talked with a Hindu man who had just moved here from California. He took two tracts. Please pray that the seeds that were planted will grow into eternal life for many!

Upcoming Events: The Ark-La-Miss Fair And TheTexas State Fair

Oi
Two events on our schedule are the Ark-La-Miss Fair in Monroe and the Texas State Fair held in Dallas. On September the 19th, we will be giving out tracts near the front gate of the Ark-La-Miss fair. We have been to this one several years in a row. We always try to make it one night of the 10 that it is held on. Last year, we gave out a good amount of tracts and had one on ones. Please pray for fruit. 
On October the 19th, Bro. Gary and I will be going  to participate in the State Fair Of Texas Gospel Outreach. I went for the first time last year. (Check out my posts from last year about my trip and experiences.) The Full Gospel Businessmen Of America 
sponsor the Million Dollar Eye Test booth.
We will be wilth Carl Kalbfleish again this year. Last year was the first time that we have met in person. We work together through Bezeguen Ministries. I was really encouraged by being there last year. People stand outside of the booth, inviting the fair goers to take the million dollar eye test. The people inside the booth take them through the "test". They will ask if that person would trade one eye for a million dollars. Usually, the person will respond with no. The next question asks "What about both eyes for 100 million dollars?" The next question is "How much more valuable is your soul?" 
Then the person is taken through the Ten Commandments (the Good Person test). 
Please pray that souls are awakened to see that their need for the Savior. Please pray for these outreaches.

Gospel Tract Spotlight: What Happens After #YOLO?

A néw tract from Bezeugen Ministries will be in the October tract club mailing. Yolo (the acronym for "You Only Live Once" is used a lot today, especially  by young people. It was made popular by a Canadian rapper named Drake in his song "The Motto" from 2011. Many have made it their motto to live on the wild side. Several months ago, I started asking people what yolo meant. About 95% of those who I asked knew what it was.
I would ask "What happens after you live once?" "You die" some would say. Then, I would ask "What happens after you die?" I would get several answers. 
I told Carl Kalbfleish about what I had been doing and the response that I have been getting. I sent a  draft to him, he edited the content, and came up with the eye-catching design on the front. This is a good tract to start a conversation. It will be in the next Bezeugen Tract Club mailing. Enroll. to get 30 free tracts a month to hand out to someone who is living a yolo life!


This is how the back reads: 

YOLO - You Only Live Once. This is said by people everyday. It is tweeted with a hashtag on Twitter (#YOLO). It is actually stated in scripture: And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment; - Hebrews 9:27. What happens after you live once? There are two places mankind will live for eternity. Let's see where you spend eternity after YOLO  according to God's standards, The Ten Commandments. Have you ever told a lie? Stolen anything? Hated someone? Jesus calls hatred murder (Matthew 5:22)! Ever used God's name carelessly? That is blasphemy and is a very serious offense (Exodus 20:7). 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, 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. God "commands all people everywhere to repent" because "He has set a day when He will judge the world"  (Acts 17:30-31). If you repent and believe the Gospel, then God will forgive all your sin and give you eternal life (Mark 1:15, John 3:36) YOLO, then eternity.

The 10 Foot Rule

When I worked at Walmart several years ago, I was taught the "10 Foot Rule" in my training. To quote Sam Walton - "... I want you to promise that whenever you come within 10 feet of a customer, you will look him in the eye, greet him and ask him if you can help him." I practiced it then and I do it now in witnessing or acknowledging someone that in near. 
On your next trip to Walmart, see if the "10 Foot Rule" is put into practice. Most likely you will be disappointed. Employees and even managers don't even bother to greet anyone. I try to get a manager's  attention when  they just walk on by without smiling or acknowledging that I'm in the vicinity. I want to ask if they know what the "10 Foot Rule" is! 
Try it the next time you are out witnessing. Give a tract to people who are in 10 feet of your reach. Some people  appreciate the fact that you took time to hand them a tract! I had one man look at me like I was crazy! He had probably never received a tract before. The more you do this, the more you may give tracts out!

Door To Door Evangelism - August 23, 2014

We went out in two groups this morning. We went to where about 15 travel trailers and an rv were behind a convenience store. I had met a man who was staying there through one of our tract challenges. Isaac was from south Louisiana. They are working on the construction of a Centurylink in Monroe. We mostly left door hangers and tracts with our church address on the back. We talked to Roark, a Jehovah's Witness. He seemed pretty steeped in their doctrine. He tried to agree with us a about hell, but they don't believe it. He did take a door hanger. I gave a tract to Mitch who was working at a business by the lot. At Lampkins, the store, we talked with Brian. He was on work release. He has been off of crack cocaine for 10 years. 
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.

The "You're Welcome" Gospel Tract

You could probably say this is something like a “third generation tract.” Let me explain. For several years we had wanted to create a Gospel tract for Thanksgiving. We released the Give Thanks tract in the November mailing of the Bezeugen Tract Club. Shortly after releasing that tract, someone commented on one of our BLOG posts suggesting a Thank You tract. We prayed about the idea and earlier in 2014 released the Thank You tract. That tract has been very well received.

A short time later someone suggested, “why not a tract for you’re welcome also?” We wereYoure Welcome txarm Frontpraying 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!

This tract and many others can be ordered through One Million Tracts by going to the Bezeugen Gospel Tracts @ onemilliontracts.com

Share A Tract With........


The “Share a Coke” campaign is wanting people to share a coke with someone. As Christians, we share the Gospel everyday. A good way to do this is through Gospel tracts. A tract can be left anywhere for someone to read. A tract can be used to start a conversation with a lost soul. Tracts are ammunition to share the Gospel with anyone…. as you go!

YOLO ... what then?

YOLO - You Only Live Once. This is said by people everyday. It is tweeted with as a hashtag on Twitter (#YOLO). People say it when they have done something because of a wild and free spirit. I have been asking people lately what YOLO means. Most  knew what it was. A few didn't. I asked what would happen after you live once. Some said eternity would be next. Others said that they didn't know. I was able to give each one a tract and asked them to think about our conversation. Try this the next time you witness and see what kind of response you get. 

This is a good tract to use when you ask someone about YOLO. It can be ordered through onemilliontracts.com through the Bezeugen tracts. 

Live Each Day

Roughly 150,000 people die each day. What if today is your last? “It is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment” (Hebrews 9:27). Based on the Ten Commandments, how will you do? Have you ever told a lie? Stolen anything? Hated someone? Jesus calls hatred murder (Matthew 5:22)! Ever used God’s name carelessly? That is blasphemy and is a very serious offense (Exodus 20:7). If God judges you by this standard, will you be innocent or guilty? Should God send you to 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, 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. God “commands all people everywhere to repent” because “He has set a day when He will judge the world”  (Acts 17:30-31). If you repent and believe the Gospel, then God will forgive all your sin and give you eternal life (Mark 1:15, John 3:36). Do it today! www.AfterLifeCatalog.com       80-BEZEUGEN     (802-393-8436)

The Story Of The Tetelestai Tract From Bezeugen

This is one of the two new tracts in the August tract club mailing. This is taken from the Bezeugen website.

The Story of the Tetelestai tract

One day, a couple of years, ago I was standing in line at the Chick-Fil-A at the Stonebriar Mall in Frisco, TX to buy my lunch. While I was standing in line I struck up a conversation with the guy behind me, a young man probably in his mid to late 20′s. As we stood in line we were talking and I learned that he worked in the mall. Eventually, the topic of spiritual things came up. I was explaining that eternal life is a free gift because the penalty has already been paid for our sin. I said, it was as if his lunch had been paid for. I was next up to order. I placed my order and when the cashier, who turned out to be the manager on duty, asked me “is that all” I said, “no, I also want whatever he is getting” and pointed to the young man I was talking with. So that manager looked at him and said, “what would you like?” The young man felt uncomfortable having me, a complete stranger, buy him lunch and refused to order. But the manager, who had been hearing the conversation, said, “I can’t close out this ticket until you place your order.”

So finally he placed his order.

What happened next amazed us both!

As I was expecting the manager to tell me the total for the order instead he said, “I’ve taken care of it for you both.” WOW! What an awesome demonstration. The young man was deeply impacted. When I walked by the kiosk where he worked a little later he told me that he had called his wife and shared with her what an awesome thing had happened.

There are many ways to make the connection to something that has been paid in full. Start in the natural realm with things that people think about being paid. Or use a real world demo like described above. You can pay for someones coffee, gas for their car, groceries, etc. You can even pay for the car behind you at the drive thru and then hand two tracts to the cashier. Ask them to give one to the people in the next car along with their food and let the tract explain that their food has been “paid in full” just like their sin!

The week before Thanksgiving (2013) a friend and member of the tract club called me and suggested the idea for this tract. He described the whole thing in a voice message. Seemed like a great idea and it tied in nicely with the things that we have done to use the analogy. Then a couple days later another friend called left a message and said, “I’d like to talk to talk with you about an idea for a tract.” When I called him back the idea he shared was the same idea of a tract to hand to someone to let them know a bill had been paid in full. Isn’t it amazing how God uses multiple people to share an idea. Prompting each of us in our own way shows that He is at work in the midst of it. So we continued praying, had more discussion and this tract is the result of all of these things.

Fireworks Evangelism - Monroe, La. - July 5, 2014


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!

The Story Of The John 3:16 Tract

John 3:16 is perhaps the most widely known Bible verse for Christians and non-Christians alike. It is the simplicity of the Gospel in a single verse. What is the verse? And more importantly, what does it mean? We made this Gospel tract so that engaging people could be as easy as asking, “do you know John 3:16?” and seeing what they say. Either way whether they know it or not it is an opportunity to share with them what it means.

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

"The End" Is Here!

The July mailing of the Bezeugen Tract Club features a new tract called The End. I gave the idea to Carl one Sunday evening. He photo shopped the front and came up with an eye-catching design. Check out this video that describes this tract: 



Here is the content on the back: 


The End. These words appear at the end of a story. There is a lot of talk about these days being "the end" times. If your life would end today, where would you be in eternity? The Bible says in Hebrews 9:27 - And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
Let's see how you will do in the end based on the Ten Commandments. Have you ever told a lie? Stolen anything? Hated someone? Jesus calls hatred murder (Matthew 5:22)! Ever used God’s name carelessly? That is blasphemy and is a very serious offense (Exodus 20:7). Will you be bbfinnocent 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, 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. God “commands all people everywhere to repent” because “He has set a day when He will judge the world”  (Acts 17:30-31). If you repent and believe the Gospel, then God will forgive all your sin and give you eternal life (Mark 1:15, John 3:36).

Friday Night Witnessing - June 13, 2014



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. 

Happy Flag Day!

http://www.shop.onemilliontracts.com/Are-You-A-Good-American-100ct-pckg-2-x-3-1-2-051.htm

Here is a good tract for this day! 

America is a wonderful country, but what does it mean to be a good American? Is it someone who loves baseball? Football? Beer? How about this question, are you a good person? The Bible says in Proverbs 20:6 "Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness." Let's see if you qualify as being a good person. Have you ever told a lie? Have you ever stolen anything, irrespective of its value? Jesus said, "I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart" (Matthew 5:28). Have you ever looked at someone with lust? The Bible says that if someone hates another person they are a murderer (I John 3:15). Have you ever hated anyone? If you have answered "Yes" to the previous questions, then you have admitted that you are a liar, a thief, an adulterer and a murderer and we've only looked at 4 of the 10 Commandments. If God were to judge you by this standard would you be innocent or guilty? You know you are guilty and deserving of an eternity in Hell. Do you still think you are a good person or do you now understand that you are a sinner (Romans 3:23, I John 3:4) and deserve the wrath of God? Jesus Christ came to earth and died a criminal's death not because He had broken the Law, but because we had. Romans 5:8 "God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." What should you do? Repent, turn from your sins and put your complete faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. For more information please visit www.YouGotOurTract.com

A Love For Souls!



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.

May The Lord Be With You! Saturday Witnessing



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! 

Here is how the back of the tract reads:

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!

Monday Night Witnessing


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?

Friday Night Evangelism - April 4, 2014



We went to The Trial Bar on Friday night from 10:00 - 11:30. We took the "Are You Ready" cross with us. This usually brings people over without us saying anything. We started the night out  by doing our prayer walk. On the way back to the bar, we saw someone walking toward us on the other side of the road. As we approached the person, we realized that it was a transvestite. His name was Chris. After I gave him a Lucky Buck tract, I asked if he knew where he was going if he died in five minutes. He said that he didn't. I asked him to read the tract. 
We mainly aimed for conversations. It wasn't that busy, but there was lost people there. We talked to a young man who called himself "Rez". (Later on, we found out that his name was Mike.) He told us that he had a "spiritual" experience through drinking a tea. Bro. Gary told him that Satan comes as an angel of light in disguise. Rez is a talker and would make a good soul-winner if he gets saved. A man that apologized for heckling us the last time we were there said that he had a satanic bible with him. It seems that we started a few conversations by being there. I asked Derek if he knew where he was going if he died in 5 minutes. He said "hell". At least he was honest. I gave him an Are You Ready? tract and asked him to read it later. 
We plan on going out next around the middle of May. Please keep this street ministry in your prayers. 

New Tract Holder At A Laundry Mat

I've got several tract holders and baskets at three laundry mats and one convenience store. I went to restock at the West Monroe location a few weeks ago, but it was gone. I got another one at Office Depot on Thursday. I put tracts in it and placed it there on Saturday. The tracts get taken! Pray that no one will take the holder!

The Hoppy Easter 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!

Saturday Witnessing



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!

Mardi Gras Parade Outreach - February 15, 2014






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!
