During the holidays, figures of the season are everywhere in the stores. I call these props or helpers. They are easy to leave tracts on for someone to take. I gave Santa a “It’s The Great Pumkin, Charlie Brown” tract to hand out at Walmart on Wednesday!
Greetings Club Members,
September was another great month to witness about our wonderful Savior! We pray that you met all of your evangelism goals. In many places, fairs and carnivals took place. We had an outreach at our local fair, where he gave out over 600 tracts. We had several good conversations, also. In the October tract club mailing was the new “What happens after #YOLO?” tract. I have been having a great time using this one to start conversations by asking people what happens after they live once. Most respond by saying, “You die.” Then I ask, “What happens after you die?” I’ve had various responses that have led into great witnessing encounters.
We are getting ready for the State Fair Of Texas Gospel Outreach on the 18th of this month. I was able to go last year the first time. We will be working the booth with students from the School of Discipleship at Gospel For Asia. Read about last years outreach here
Also, one of the most popular days for evangelism is coming up this month – Halloween. The “It’s A Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!” tract was in the October mailing, also. This one can be ordered through One Million tracts here:

All For Souls,
Another tract that was in the October tract club mailing is the “$1,000,000,000 Eye Test” tract. This was modified from the first time that it came out. The front asks the question “Would you trade one of your eyes for one million dollars?”. We will be using this one at the State Fair Of Texas Gospel Outreach on Oct. 18 where we will be asking people to take the million dollar eye test. Here’s a dialogue to use when giving out this tract:
“Would you trade one of your eyes for a million dollars?
Person: “I don’t believe I would?”
“What about both eyes for one hundred million? You could see the world!”
Person: “Definitely not!”
“Your eyesight is precious, isn’t it? How much more valuable is your soul?”
Person: “It’s valuable.”
Then, you can transition into taking them through the good person test or ask them to read the back of the tract. This is a great way to get someone to think about their eternal condition…..
As You Go!
Another tract for October is the “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” tract. I like to place this on Halloween and fall displays in the stores. It blends right in. It’s bound to be read! I also like to ask “Did you get this one?”. This is also great to put in the trick-or-treaters’ bags when they come to your door. You can order from One Million Tracts by going to onemilliontracts.com
The “What Happens After #YOLO?” tract was in the October Tract Club mailing. The idea for this tract came from asking people if they know what YOLO means. YOLO stands for “You Only Live Once”. It came from a rap song, The Motto, that was done by a Canadian rapper by the name of Drake in 2011. A lot of people live by this motto everyday. They live wild like there is no tomorrow. I started asking some if they knew what it meant.
About everyone one I asked had the right answer. Next, I would ask “What happens after YOLO?”. Most said that we die. Next, I would ask “What happens after you die?” I got answers like the after life or you get reborn. Then, I would say that this is something to think about. This is a good opportunity to take someone through the good person test.
People aren’t thinking about eternity. Let’s use this tract and others to get them thinking about “What Happens After Yolo”!
Greetings Everyday Club Members,
How was your month in witnessing? We are having a great time with the daily challenges on the Bezeugen Tract Club Facebook page. We’ve had challenge to give a tract to someone wearing a hat, holding a cell phone, or wearing a name tag. And… we have sent prizes out to selected winners who have participated!
A new tract called “What Happens After #YOLO” is coming out in the October tract club mailing. We’ve been asking people if they know what YOLO means. A lot know that it stands for “You Only Live Once”. This is good springboard into a Gospel conversation.
Local and state fairs are about to to be in full swing. These are great places to give out tracts and have one on ones! Are you planning on going to a fair soon? Let us know when you leave your comment for August at the bottom of this post on the As You Go Blog. You are welcome to join us at the State Fair of Texas on October 18th.
Thanks for your commitment to share the Gospel with the lost everyday! Have a great September!
All For Souls,
If you use Walmart for your prescription drugs, most of the time there is a line when picking them up. My wife has several prescriptions due to having rheumatoid arthritis, so I go there on a regular basis. This is a good time to give out tracts and start conversations. I usually leave a tract for someone to pick up. Look for opportunities the next time you go to the Walmart pharmacy. If you don’t need a prescription, just leave a tract or find someone to witness to. This is a great way to witness….as you go!
