I like this definition of proxy – The ability to do or be something without actually physically doing it. I gave 5 of the Texting tracts to a man who gave my order to me at Podnuh’s Barbecue.
I asked him to give them out to his co-workers. I’ve done this a few times with the holiday themed tracts. Sometimes when I hand we are out witnessing, I’ll ask someone to give a tract to their friend who has walked on ahead. At other times, someone will ask if they can have another tract to give to a friend or relative. This is what I call tracts by proxy.
