Day 10 – Post Office

READ MORE

I had to go to the post office to mail some tracts to new tract club members. Since I had a nunber of envelopes that were all the same, the clerk asked me what I was mailing.

Wow! What a great segway to the Gospel.

So I said, “gospel tracts!” and reached in my pocket and handed her an Are You Lucky tract. She immediately read the front and then turned it over. Realizing there was a lot to read she set it aside and said she would check it out after work.

Now I realize that unless you were mailing multiple envelopes of tracts, the exact scenario might not apply. However, with any number of questions in a short dialog with the clerk you too could leave a tract with the postal clerk.

On a side note, at the post office, they ask if the packages contain anything fragile or harmful. I could say something like, “no, contents may prevent eternal death” or “no, contents promote life!”

 

Day 9 – Home Depot

READ MORE

Today I had to go to Home Depot to get a new water filter for our refridgerator. Since I’d be in the home appliance section, I figured it was the perfect opportunity to ask for help and then ask when 90 is greater than 100 and hand out a Microwave Oven tract. However, the guy working the section was one that I’ve already witnessed too, and he was not too receptive to the Gospel last time. So, once I got the filter I needed, I left the tract on the handle to one of the microwaves!

 

Day 8 – Riddle

READ MORE

I was walking through the mall. Came up to someone and asked if he liked riddles. He said “yes”. So I handed him a Microwave Oven riddle tract that asks on the front “when is 90 greater than 100?” He pondered the riddle for a few moments and then turned the card over and read the back!

 

Day 7 – Fryes

READ MORE

While browsing at Fryes Electronics store they had a sign that said “free delivery.” An employee was standing near by me. So pointing at the sign I said, “that’s lucky!”. He was then telling me what a good deal it is. When I asked if he could deliver to Dallas, he said yes from one of the Dallas stores. So then I asked him if he is lucky and handed him an “are you lucky” tract.

Of course I was simple trying to be funny witht the Dallas comment to engage him in conversation. His pager went off and he left.

The store was themed. Here is a picture of the octopus that wa breaking through one wall!

 

Day 6 – ATM

READ MORE

Here is an easy way to share a tract. Leave one at the ATM.

 

Day 5 – Do you have anything free?

READ MORE

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!”

 

Day 4 – Final Four Trivia

READ MORE

Checking out at the store. I simply handed the cashier, a young man, a final four trivia tract and said, “some basketball trivia for you.”. He said thanks and I left.

Try it. Post your experience in the comments.

 

Day 3 – WalMart Million

READ MORE

This morning I had to run to WalMart to pick up a couple of things. At the checkout, I handed the cahier a million dollar bill. She said “I already have one of those.”. So I reached back in my pocket, got out another style and handed it to her and asked if she had it. She said, “no” and took it.

I asked if she had read the message on the back. She said she had and that it was “nice.”. She said she did not belive it. Then another customer came so I left.

As I walled off I felt like I needed to tall with her a little more. So I waited until the next customer wa wrung up. I said, “you seem to be sincerely seeking the truth. I thought you might like to read a book that might answer a number of your questions. ”

She said she was interested. So I gave her a “where will you spend eternity” tract and pointed her to the web site on the back to order her own copy of Mark Cahill’s book. She thanked me and I left.

Day 3 down. Three of my tract club tracts have been handed out. How are you doing?

Are you enrolled? If not, you can request your own supply of 30 tracts per month at Bezeugen Ministries

 

Isn’t that luck

READ MORE

At the airport waiting for our plane. Across from the gate is an Irish Pub! Isn’t that lucky? I gave an “are you lucky” tract to the hostess. The manager came over and I gave her one too. Then I asked how many people were working. The hostess said eight. So I gave her tracts for each of them.

I explained to the manager that there is no such thing as luck and that God is in control of everything. She said that because of there not being luck that she had stopped going to the doctor. Now, I am not saying that is the right approach. She said “why go, I’m going to die someday anyway. ”

Wow!

The segway to the gospel does not get much easier than that. She said that everyone goes to heaven. I explained that some go to heaven and some go to hell. At that she said she had to go. I encouraged her to read the back of the card. She said she would.
