At lunch I met Craig in the Dallas West End for some witnessing. This is one of our favorite fishing holes. There are always people there milling about and waiting for the train or bus. So it is easy to approach them, hand them a tract and then share the Gospel with them.

I had an assortment of tracts with me including Fried at the Fair (which is popular this time of year with the Texas State Fair now in its first full week), Dallas Cowboys football schedule tract and a new version of the Who do you say that I AM that will be in the November mailing of the Bezeugen Tract Club.

Many people took the Cowboys schedule tracts. I had several good conversations with people with the fried at the fair tracts. Those conversations go like this. Can you name 10 things fried at the fair. Regardless if they do, then ask “can you name the Ten Commandments?” I had two teens tell me that they could not name the Ten Commandments, but one boasted that he could name 20 types of weed! They both claimed to be Christian. I reminded them that the Bible says not to be drunk, but to be full of the Holy Spirit!

I gave out the bookmark that is pictured above along with a New Testament to a young lady who listened very intently to the Gospel. After a brief conversation that started with the Fried at the Fair tract, I asked if she had read the Bible. She said no. So I asked if I could show her a couple things. She agreed. So I sat down next to her on the bench where she was sitting, opened the New Testament and walked her through the questions. She took the New Testament and bookmark and thanked me for my time!

I didn’t go anyplace today where I could share the Gospel with anyone. But I was sending a letter in the mail. So I included the Gospel and also put some Play by the Rules tracts into business reply envelopes and put them all in the mailbox.2015-09-28 05.56.13

 

Day 150926: Camo Card

READ MORE

Today was national hunting and fishing day and the Daily Tract Challenge was to give out a camo card. I left one at the gas2015-09-26 06.21.16 pump. I also went inside the gas station and left some camo cards in a business card holder. On a trip to the grocery store I gave tracts to a couple people in the parking lot, left several in beer cases and gave one to the cashier.

Day 150924: State Fair Prayer Meeting

READ MORE

After work I drove to Fair Park for a come and go prayer meeting at the State Fair Gospel booth. For the past five years I have 2015-09-24 19.07.50brought a team of laborers to the booth to share the Gospel one day of the 24 day State Fair. This year I will lead a team on October 17th. The fair kicks off on Friday, September 25th and runs through Sunday October 18th. An estimated 3.5 million visitors will attend the fair making it the largest state fair in the country and one of the largest witnessing venues you could imagine. A booth is setup on Nimitz Blvd across the street from a row of fried food vendors and just a few hundred feet from the historic Cotton Bowl stadium. Each day during the fair people will come up to the booth to take the Million Dollar Eye test, get diagnosed by a spiritual doctor and then hear the only cure is through the life giving blood of Jesus! Please keep this outreach in your prayers.

So as I left the prayer meeting I had the chance to talk to a few people. I gave a Fried at the Fair tract to one of the vendors who was testing their food setup. I gave a football trivia tract to one of the workers sitting in a golf card. And I gave camo cards(from the September mailing of the Bezeugen Tract Club) to two guys who were from IBM and working on setting up the network for the coupon sales booth.

 

Day 150923: Date Night

READ MORE

My wife and I got to have an impromtu date night! Went to a nice restaurant for dinner. I left a tract at the check in and gave an “Who is described by” to the hostess. After dinner I left a John 3:16 tract with a generous tip.

I stopped for gas on the way home and put two football trivia tracts in the gas pump credit card slots of the pump I was at and the one on the other side of the island. As I was walking around to get back in my car, I noticed a guy standing there pumping gas. I walked over, said hello and handed him a football trivia tract. I said, “Here is some football trivia for you. It has the Gospel on the back.” He said thanks and took it. As I walked off he was reading it!

 

Day 150922: Choose your gift

READ MORE

I decided to try something fun today. I posted a picture on Facebook of four tracts from the September mailing of the Bezeugen 2015-09-22 06.34.12tract Club and asked people to pick which one I should hand out. I got a couple of responses, but not until after my wife and I decided to go to a convenience store to purchase a drink of water. While we were there they had ice cream so I decided to have one! At the check out there were two cashiers. I think one was in training. I took the four tracts along with a fifth that will be in the November mailing and laid them out in front of the cashiers. I said, “I have a gift for yuo. You can pick which ever one of these you’d like.” She picked the cancer awareness saying that it was a really important message. He picked play by the rules. I quickly explained that they both are the same – based on the message on the back. They thanked me and we returned to the park to pick up our son from Cross Country practice.

At the park I checked the Facebook posts and there were comments to hand out a play by the rules. Done! But there was also a comment to hand out a Camo Card. So I went up to a guy in the park and said, “have you got your camo card?” He said no and I handed him one. This part is kind of funny, and nothing bad is meant by it, but a new tract we have is called the “MyCard”. You’ll see it in the November mailing of the Bezeugen tract Club. I jokingly hand it to people as if it is my business card. So after handing him the camo card, I looked at his girlfriend and said, “here is MyCard”. She laughed, took it and said thanks!
