The following is an outrageous account from Kandra King who is a total extrovert/actress/performer—but was too intimidated to hand out some million-dollar bill gospel tracts. Read how God blessed her efforts when she stepped out in faith…
The first time Steve came & spoke on the new “million dollar bill” method for winning souls, I thought I’m happy for Steve, how great for the Kingdom… I wasn’t convinced it was for me. After all, my ministry is with kids. However, I did buy a stack of bills & was going to at least try & hand some out. I put 7 in my purse & the rest in a drawer. 3 weeks later, Steve returned to the pulpit with even more enthusiasm & excitement about evangelizing. This time my husband Jack & I bought stacks of bills for our entire mini-church. Later that evening at a church Leadership meeting, Steve re-emphasized its importance & I was determined to “take the next step.” Another week goes by, our Senior Pastor Zac expresses his urgent request to get on board with Steve. I still have not handed out a single bill. I know I’ve got to force myself to do what my pastors have instructed.
The next day, I was being blessed with a manicure on our Sabbath. I over-heard 3 teenage girls talking. They were speaking in ways that were definitely worldly & included a few barked out orders to friends. I saw this as my chance. However, it was like an angel was on one shoulder & the devil on my other. The angel saying “speak” & the devil, “don’t speak.” Finally the girls got up to leave & were on there way out the door. How can I hand out bills? My nails are wet! Just as they were leaving I suddenly shouted, “WAIT!” Unexpectedly, the entire place went silent; now I’ve done it. I told them I had something for them, but they had to come over & get them out of my fanny pack. They did. I then asked the million dollar questions before they left to hit the 3rd Street Promenade. I reminded them of the man last year that came crashing through 3rd Street killing over 15 people. The next thing I new they were ready to repent & actually prayed. I was flabbergasted. God moved so quickly. Next thing I know, every single person in the salon wanted a bill. Only one of the Vietnamese employees (the owner) could read English. She proceeded to read the entire back of the bill out-loud to them. WOW! I was so excited.
The next day, the devil was furious & decided to create havoc in our lives. We had just purchased a home (gift from God) and we received a call. Problems abounded. We had to drive to the Valley & then were asked to stick around the area because there may be new paper work to sign. We stopped in the nearby Coffee Bean. I tipped the gal & gave her a million dollar bill at the same time. I asked the question. She was confused, so I repeated it. Then she said, is this some kind of religious thing? I replied, “No, it’s an eternal destiny thing.” She said, “Oh, I’m already a Christian, you can have this back.” I then said, “No, you keep it & give it to someone that isn’t saved.” A few minutes went by & she came up to me & said. “I’m sorry I was so aloof; I’ve never had a Christian share with me before.” How sad.
A few hours later I arrived at Sports Authority to exchange the gloves Jack had bought me for Tae-Kwondo. As I was perusing the equipment a young man asked me if I needed help. He proceeded to tell me about all his black belts & trophies in martial arts. I acknowledged his triumphs. Then he said, “Martial Arts is the best exercise in the world & it’s the only thing that gives you real peace”. Well, if that wasn’t an open door… I gave him a million dollar bill and when we had gone through the questions, he stated that he didn’t own a Bible. I gave him a Gospel of John (now you know why my fanny pack is busting at the seems). He agreed to read it on his lunch break. I then advanced to the check-out counter. I set my fanny pack down & the clerk said, “I like those bills. What are they 100 thousand dollars?” “No, they are million dollar bills,” I said. “Would you like one?” “Hey look everybody!” he said. “I just got a million dollar bill. Now I can quit my job”. Five clerks rushed over, so I gave each of them one too. Now I’m at Sav-on and as I go to check-out the man asks me, “Are those million dollar bills?” “Yes, would you like one?” I answered. He took one, then came right back & asked for a second one because he had two daughters. When I called Jack with the exciting news, he said he needed a couple other things from Sav-on. “No problem,” I said & I returned to the store. Oh no, look at this long line Then I realized what an opportunity it was. I heard a man ask me, “Do you have 10 dollars?” “I have better then that, here’s a million dollar bill & if you follow me to my car, I have a bag of food for you too.” (I keep zip-lock bags of food for the homeless in my car & each of them has the Gospel of John & NOW a million dollar bill). I gave every one in line a million dollar bill. That afternoon was so awesome. I was very excited about the incredible response I was receiving.
At 6:59 I was running to the door of our favorite salad bar location to get a salad for dinner just as he was closing. I said Cory, please, I’ll be really quick & I’ll give you a million dollars. As I was rapidly making our salad, I could see him reading the back of the bill. I thanked him for staying open & he thanked me for the million-dollar bill. When I arrived home, I was sharing with Jack how thrilled I was with what God had done and looked down to discover I had only 3 bills left. It had been just 24 hours since I finally got obedient & I had almost gone through an entire stack of bills, led 3 teens to Christ, created potential for renewal of a relationship with God with another and planted seed all over the place. God is faithful. It was because I took that first leap of Faith that he was able to work. The stories go on & on.
I’m going to share one other experience. The Wednesday after my first two days of handing out bills I woke up feeling like I was hit by a Mack truck. I’ve only been sick one time in the last 6 years & it was a cold. Yet this day, my back was completely out. I had spasms and cramps surging through my body. (Satan will not like your obedience to this call). I had to go to North Hollywood regardless of the pain. I stopped in the Good Earth restaurant to pick up spinach salads as I always do every time I’m in that neck of the woods. As I was leaving I said while driving, “I’m sorry God. I feel awful. I just don’t feel like handing out million dollar bills today.” Then I heard, “I didn’t FEEL like dying on a cross for your sins.” I actually turned my head to see if Jesus was sitting in the back seat because it was so real. The Holy Spirit was at work. I turned my car around. The young lady at the Good Earth counter said, “Is something wrong?” I said “Yes, I forgot to give you this.” She responded, “Oh look I got a million dollar bill from Mrs. King. WOW!” As I was leaving the gentleman who always lets me park in the loading zone inquired, “Did you forget something?” I said “Yes, I forgot to give you this.” As I gave him the bill he said “Oh thank you, Senorita King. This is so special.”
I realize now that there is an urgency to share God’s word & that God is the one who waters what we plant. I’m glad Steve decided to make this strong dedicated effort to evangelize. I encourage everyone just to try it. You will be BLESSED!
In his service,
