Bucket List

Day 150721: VBS on the road


Our church put on VBS on the road at a local apartment complex. It’s a great opportunity to build relationships, get to know people and share the Gospel with them. I got to talk with several people and give out a few tracts including a Bucket List tract from the July mailing of the Bezeugen Tract Club.

Day 150719: Heading home


Went down for breakfast at the resort. Gave tracts to several people. Gave tracts and tips to bellman and valet. Valet got the Bucket List tract from the July mailing of the tract club. Gave a tract to the cashier while checking out. Stopped at sonic on the way home. Gave a tract to the car hop who brought us our drinks!

Day 150718: Valet


My wife and I received a certificate to spend a night at a resort a little ways from our house. While driving there we made several stops and we were able to hand out some tracts. At a gas station I was able to have a conversation with a cashier and share the Gospel with him.

When we arrived at the resort, they even provided a free valet! So I gave him a Bucket List tract along with a tip. Tipped several other resort workers with cash and tracts.

Day 150716 : Salt and Water


Got to hand out a number of tracts and talk to several people about Jesus today. On my way to work I had to stop by the post office. One the way back out another customer came in, so I handed her a Bucket List tract from the July mailing of the Bezeugen Tract Club.

I got off of work early and met my wife for a date! We went to the movies and saw Inside Out. That was fun. At the theater I gave MyCard to three employees working at snack bar. They were all checking to see if they were good enough to go to Heaven. The ticket taker got a Ten Commandments tract. After the movie ended, when I came back out four employees were waiting to clean the theater. Three of them were standing against the wall and one was holding the door. I gave each of the three Camo Cards, Ten Commandments and Are You a Good Person respectively. The third one asked “what is it?” so I told them they are Gospel tracts. When I went to hand one to the guy holding the door he reminded me that he already got one at the snack bar!

After the movie it was off to Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner. I handed a Get Out of Hell Free card to the host who seated us. After2015-07-16 19.28.05 we sat down and placed our drink order one of the hostesses came over holding the Get Out of Hell Free card. She said, “you gave this to someone when you came in….” Kind of funny is I was thinking, “oh, no”, I am about to get reprimanded for handing out tracts. Then she said, “can I get one too?” I asked if she was a Christian and she said, “kind of”. So I gave her a Get Out of Hell Free Card and then gave her a few other tracts that i had with me.

Then she explained further, “my grandmother is a Jehovah’s Witness, can you tell me the difference between that and Christian?” I told her that the full explanation might take a little while, but I’d summarize. Then I gave her my card and invited her to call me and she and I and my wife could have a longer conversation about it.

I explained to her that Jesus must be God in order to be the perfect sacrifice to pay for the sins of the world. I told her that if he was not God, and was just a man, then he would not be perfect and His payment on the cross would not be sufficient. She nodded in agreement. Then I said, “the difference between Christian and Jehovahs Witness is that the JW deny the Deity of Jesus.” I explained to her that John 1:1 indicates that the word was God and that John 1:14 indicates the Word became flesh. So I said, “from these two verses it is clear that Jesus is God.” Again she nodded in agreement.

I then explained that the problem with the Jehovah’s Witnesses is that they have a translation of the Bible that adds one letter there in John 1:1 which says the word was “a” god. In essence they strip the Deity of Jesus with one letter.

Finally I explained to her that there are many “Jesus’s” and that people call them all the same as if they are both the same. I picked up the salt shaker and my glass of water. I told her, let’s say I tell you these are both water. Then I offer you a drink. Which would you want to drink from? She pointed to the water.  I said, in the same way, it is important to follow the true Jesus!

She thanked me for the conversation. I invited her to email or call and I’d provide her more information.

When we paid the bill I left a Thank You tract for the waitress!

Day 150715: Business Reply


There are literally days like today where I get up in the morning, drive to work, work all day, and drive home. I am not around2015-07-15 21.59.49 anyone that I can hand a tract to. Even on my walk to and from the office, there was not anyone around to talk to or hand a tract to.

But, I had some business reply envelopes that had come in the mail. So I put tracts in four of them, including a Bucket List tract from the July mailing of the Bezeugen Tract Club and put them in the mailbox!

Someone will open those envelopes and receive the Gospel!

Day 150710 – Mary Poppins


I drove to Oklahoma City after work and went to see Mary Poppins with my mom. En route I stopped at a visitor center near the11350913_1013959685281473_5511535084073488511_n Oklahoma border and one of the workers gave me some travel info. I said, “if you are giving me something, then I need to give you something too” and handed her a Bucket List tract from the July mailing of the Bezeugen Tract Club.

At the Civic Center, I parked in a lot where I have parked before. I gave the parking attendant a Thank You tract. He gladly accepted it an even remembered getting one from me previously. I gave out several other tracts to some others at the show.

I was blessed to be able to spend the night with Brady and Trish Brewer. They are good friends and faithful witnesses for Christ sharing the Gospel in OKC! Brady and I have known each other since we met at Ambassadors Academy #10 in May 2009.

Day 150711: Bucket List


I love Saturday’s. Much more time to wander around, talk to people, give out some tracts and share the Gospel. Today was no 2015-07-11 18.02.56different. Went to the gas station – twice – and left tracts at the pump. Went to the store and gave a MyCard to the cashier.

The Bucket List tract from the July mailing of the Bezeuegn Tract Club went to the cashier at the restaurant where I ate dinner.

That restaurant also had a bulletin board where people put their business cards. So I had to leave MyCard there. See if you can find another tract that I left there previously in the picture!
