On day 5, I was in Hollywood and Glendale with the Living Waters Ambassadors Academy. We handed out tracts in both places. However this is not the easiest place to hand out tracts because people tend to be overwhelmed by the amount of “paper” bring distributed.
Despite that, there are several things that should be considered “as you go.”
First, we had to eat lunch, so I gave an “are you lucky” tract to the cashier simply saying “you can use this card to see if your lucky.”
Second, when we were in Glendale at a large open air mall, we went to the book store to get a cup of coffer. While there we put tracts in some of the books to leave them as bookmarks.
Third, when we came out of the book store, there was a kiosk there at an open mall selling cell phone covers. The guy said, “everything is half off.”. I said, “wow that is cool.” We looked around a little. Finally, I asked, “do you have anything that is free?”. He said no. I told him that I did. He said “oh.” So I asked if he wanted to know what it is. He said “sure.”. So I told him it was eternal life. He said he needed to get back to work. I said “ok” and that I had something else he could have for free. That peaked his curiousity. So I gave him a “where will you spend eternity card” and pointed out the free book offer on the back.
In closing, although each of you may not be ready to attend the ambassadors academy, I hope these simple ways if sharing the gospel during the academy will be an encourgeent to you to share the Gospel, “as you go!”
