Using The "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!" Tract

This tract was in the October  Bezeugen Tract Club mailing. There are endless places to leave this tract this time of the year. It can be slipped into Halloween bags and  buckets, on Halloween cookies and candy displays, pumpkin pictures and displays, and more. Here are a few places where we have left them this year.

The Story Of The Million Dollar Eye Test Booth At The Texas State Fair

This is from the site of the Full Gospel Business Men of America. They sponsor the booth - 
We rent a 10’ x 10’ x 10’ outdoor, weather protected, well-lighted, heavy duty canvas booth. It is strategically located on the busiest thoroughfare inside the Fairgrounds across from the world famous fried food vendors. We mount an attention grabbing sign in the booth that says “Take the Million Dollar Eye Test”. People are drawn to the booth to take the test. The test allows us to diagnose their spiritual condition; they are either alive in Christ or dead in their sins. We then proclaim the gospel to those who need it. This gospel proclamation process goes non-stop for 12 hours each of 24 days of the Fair.

We start the conversation like this (idea from Ray Comfort -

Would you sell one of your eyes for a million dollars? Would you sell both for $50 million? I’m sure you wouldn’t. Your eyes are priceless, yet they are merely the windows of your soul. What then must your life (soul) be worth?

Then, we take the person through the  law. (The Good Person Test.)

The State Fair Of Texas Gospel Outreach - 2015

My oldest son, Braylyn, and I joined Carl along with students from Gospel For Asia, Darrell Rundus, and several others on Saturday at the State Fair of Texas Gospel Outreach in Dallas. We gave out around 5,000 tracts throughout the day. We had many conversations as people came to take the Million Dollar Eye Test. At least 5 people prayed. Some left when we went from the natural to the spiritual. Several said that they were already saved. We asked them to join the tract club. Carl spoke with two young men who said that they were atheist. Mike said that he would believe if we could answer one question for him. We did, but it wasn't the answer that he wanted. He is real bitter. Please pray for him. Cylandria prayed after I took her through the law and told her about God's grace. We used the "3 minutes to live with a knife in my back" illustration  with several people. After I told one woman that I had broke all the commandments and was dying, she said "You're in trouble!" and walked off. You should have seen the look on another woman's face! Kimberly and her daughter were about to leave the fair when they stopped by the booth. She came back after our 1st conversation to inquire about the Ten Commandment coins. She then said that they were Catholic, but didn't believe in purgatory. She had a few reservations. She thanked me for being there and believed that God had put her in our path. Please pray for her family. This was my third year to be at this outreach. It is always an encouraging time.

The Story Of The Eternity: Where? Tract

The Eternity Where tract made its debut in the October 2015 mailing of the Bezeugen eternity where icon

Tract Club. Scott recalls, “A few months back, I was thinking about another idea for a tract. I remembered a sermon illustration that my pastor, Tracy Boyd, had used years ago. He got it from a sermon called “Eternity” by J. Wilber Chapman.”

This is that illustration: The old cobbler sat day after day on his little bench, hammering away at the shoes, and before him was an old-fashioned clock. After a while he thought that the pendulum of the clock was speaking to him and he heard it say as it swung one way, – Eternity, and when it went the other way, – Where? And the old clock became a preacher and he heard it speaking like this:

“Eternity, where? Eternity, where?

The question is a solemn one. Eternity, where?

I messaged Carl about putting the words “Eternity: Where” on the front of a tract. He designed the lettering with the clouds in ” eternity” and the flames in “where”. The result is an eye catching design with a solid Gospel message.

We pray that the Eternity Where tract will be useful in sharing the Gospel with the lost.

The Ark-La-Miss Fair Outreach - Oct. 2, 2015

We had a great time at the Ark-La-Miss Fair outreach on Friday night with a group of seven. Bro. Charles McGuire, Bro. JJ Austin and his new bride, Sis. Tiffany, Bro. Jonathan Day, Braylyn (my son), Bro. Stephen (Braylyn's friend), and myself gave out around 1700 tracts. We had several conversations and Bro. JJ did open air preaching. The tracts that we used were the Million Dollar Eye Test, MyCard, Got Peace?, and the What Happens After #Yolo?. We didn't have too many rejects. One young man named Charlestom told me that he was going to hell. He took a Yolo tract. Please pray for fruit from this outreach.
