Day 20: Tracting and traveling
Saturday! Working for the weekend! Resting for my work week! No matter how you put it this was a day to hand out many tracts. My wife and I drove to visit our oldest son at college and for me to be with him on Fathers Day. We had a little extra time on the drive up. So we stopped at Lake Texoma and saw the spollway where water has only passed over it four times in history. It was an impressive site to see. Many others were there taking in the view of the water rushing over the spillway – almost all of them got a tract. I have some extra “Patriotic Bookmarks” that will be in the July mailing of the Bezeugen Tract Club, so I mainly was handing these out at these stops. I would simply hand it to someone and say, “here is a Patriotic bookmark for you.” They would look at it, take it and say thank you! With some I’d add, “there is some scripture on the back.”
At one rest area I purchased a small souvenir and gave the cashier an “Are You a Good Person” tract from the June Mailing of the Bezeugen Tract Club. A guy came up to buy something and I handed him one of the bookmarks and mentioned it had scripture on the back. He took it and then said, “you know I really needed this, I’m having a bad day, struggle with my wife, and this scripture will really help!” You see when you hand out tracts you never know who you might bless!
The #dailytractchallenge for the day was to to put a tract into a six pack of beer. I completed it at Wal-Mart – twice!
I also found this water gun had a nice tract holder to leave a tract for someone.
At McDonald’s I was able to give tracts to a number of employee’s and then leave some tracts for the next customers in line in this nice tract hold they had right at the cash register!
