I thought it might be fun to just track the tracts I handed out today and report on it here. Please feel free to leave a comment which how you handed out tracts in a day.

1) we ate lunch at Qdoba so I gave a Get out of Hell free tract to the cashier

2) I spent a few hours working from Starbucks. Gave a Bucket List tract to the cashier.

3) Put a 2+2 tract on the community bulletin board.

4) Gave Get out of Hell Free tracts to two guys that were sitting near me

5) went to the grocery store to get something for my wife. Gave a Get Out of Hell free card to the guy behind me in line

6) gave another get out of hell free card to the cashier

7) gave a name ten beers tract to the guy working in the parking lot who was collecting the carts

That’s seven tracts in one day just handing them out as I came across people. You can do it too. Need some tracts? Enroll in the Bezeugen Tract Club and we will send you 30 tracts per month and the encouragement to hand them out! Need more tracts than that? You can order any of our tracts in bulk!

At the store looking at netbook computers I typed a gospel message into wordpad for the next shopper to find.

RaceTrac

There is a gas station chain here near my house called RaceTrac. This summer they offered a promotion where you by a reusable cup and get free refill for until a certain date. We stop by whenever we pass near one of these stations to get something to drink.

It seems a little weird to use this cup because you can actually just walk in, fill your cup and then leave. You don’t even have to go to the cashier to check out.

What I have started doing is going to the register or any employee and saying, “you gave me something free now I must give you something free too.”

I hand them a gospel tract and briefly explain what it is pointing them to the message on the back. Sometimes it leads to a deeper discussuon. Otherwise not. That’s ok. The purpose is to honor God and share the Gospel.

Every time I’ve tried this the person receiving the tract says “thanks”

Perhaps you have a RaceTrac nearby or some other place doing the same thing. Even if not you can do the same kind of thing even when buy a drink.

Starbucks

I put a couple tracts on the community bulletin board.

I put a couple tracts on the table where the sugar and milk are. Customers slowly took them.

I gave one to the cashier.

On the internet

Most of the posts on this blog have been about how to witness “as you go” when you actually leave your house. But, what about if you don’t go any place. Are you “going” on the Internet? Well, you can witness there too. Here is an easy way. Put a signature on your email which provides the Gospel. Here is an easy way. Put the following in your signature in your email:

your name

Are you a good person?

Be sure to check the link. You’ll find a great new video version of the “good person comic” tract put together by Living Waters. The link on the web site also provides the opportunity for non-believers to request a free resource.

Gas station

READ MORE

Whenever I get gas for my car I put tracts in the slot for the credit card. Today there were three guys filling up the tank of a rental truck. I gave them each tracts. They read them on the spot.

Electronics Store

READ MORE

When I go to the Apple Store or other electronics stores that have internet access on their computers, I like to go to several of the computers and pull up www.AfterLifeCatalog.com, www.needgod.com or one of our preaching videos at www.youtube.com/user/bezeugen/. This way when the next person comes to use one of these computers or iPads or iPhones, they will see the Gospel message.

Recently, Christie, sent me a note that she is doing similar things:

Today at Best Buy it occurred to me that I could keep a gospel file on my e-mail site. While playing with their computers, I could cut and paste my e-mail into an iPad Note or other such program. When people are playing around with it, they may encounter the Gospel!

I hope you like these ideas. Just more ways to share the Gospel “As You Go!”

As many of you may know, I have decided to run a marathon. In the midst, Iam currently training for a half marathon on August 15th. So today, I was scheduled to run 10 miles. I picked a trail around Town Lake in Austin. Now, many of you may also know that I am not in particularly fit shape. So running does not come easily. Not like when I was in high school and could crank out 10-15 miles a day with no problem.

So, I found myself walking … a lot!

At one point as I was walking, a man called out to me. I did not really hear what he said at first because my iPod was blasting in my ears. But, I took of my head phones and went over to him. I knew my time was ticking on the stop watch that I had left in the car, but it really seemed like God would have me talk to this man instead.

Now, I don’t have any water (sweat) proof tracts so when I run, I don’t have anything to hand out. But, I’m always armed with God’s word. As I approached the man, it was as if he was invisible. There were probably a hundred people passing by per hour. Most did not even seem to see him sitting by the tree. Honestly, I can’t recall if I actually saw him before he called out to me.

I noticed that he had not had a shower or his clothes washed. He was wearing a shirt that had a SQL statement on it “select * from users where clue > 0 … returns 0 rows” and he had a cross necklace. I decided to ask about the cross first. “Does that cross mean anything to you?” He explained that he believes in God and Jesus. He then explained and showed me that he had prayer rocks and other things. I am not the judge of this mans faith. But, he did agree when I told him that the thing that is important about a church is whether it preaches Christ, and Him crucified. I elaborated and talked about sin, righteousness, judgment, God’s wrath and the perfect payment through Jesus and a mans need to repent and trust Christ.

He agreed.

So I offered to pray for him. He said ok. I gave him a hug and prayed for him. I think our 20-30 minutes together was an encouragement to us both.

Before I meet Donald, I was thinking of giving up on my plan to run a marathon. But, as I was running on from there, I was thinking if he can get through today because of the hope of Jesus, then I can also get through a run, a marathon, life through the same hope in Jesus!

In my previous post I mentioned handing out gospel tracts at wendy’s as I left wendy’s 2 men were walking in. Since I had coupons for free frosty drinks I asked them if they wanted frosty drinks. they said yes so I gave them the coupons. then I said hang on a second I have something else for you and handed one of them a baseball trivia tract and said its baseball trivia. I handed the other guy a name ten beers tract and said or maybe you can name ten beers. The first guy said naming 10 beers would be easier. They thanked me and I left. Two more seeds planted!
