What’s Your E-vangie Tale? Summer 2011


UPDATE: Sadly, the 50% Rule is in full effect. That’s right. We’re down to about 15 people with only three more classes yet to go. Who will finish out their commitment?

A new crop of about thirty-one people showed to the first class of our summer session which will last ten weeks. I always guarantee them that if they stick with the class and apply what they learn, their lives will change. That’s what happened to me on July 31, 2005 when I first heard Hell’s Best Kept Secret (Read about it here.) I’ve never looked back. Please keep reading for an another amazing story below!

Here’s where you can post your E-vangie Tale, a three sentence paragraph that tells what you experienced while sharing your faith. Example: “I saw an atheist and gave him a tract. He bared his fangs. I ran away.” You get one point for every E-vangie Tale you write, unlimited. Persevere to the end! Now read the amazing “life-change” story.

The two in color had their lives changed in a significant way in the class that was held in the spring. Ray and Jennifer Scott both realized that they were false converts after the second week!

A few weeks after the class I had the privilege of baptizing both of them. I now disciple Ray. In this newest class, Ray is bringing ten of his family members! Didn’t I say that this class can change you?

My new ten week class notes will be ready soon for those who want to teach this course at your own church. For those who have already requested a copy of my teaching and student notes I’m sorry for the delay. I hope to have them ready in the next few weeks. If you would like your own free copies, drop me an email at


  1. Went out for a walk with my 2 sons around the block. Before we left the house I took some tracks with me. My 4 year old said he wanted to take some also. I ran into a large group of grade school children walking towards us. My 4 year old starts giving million dollar bills to the kids. The kids are getting excited and so were the teachers escorting them. I gave the teachers some and wished them a blessed day. We all had a great time and talked about why it i so important to tell people about Jesus during the rest of our walk.

  2. I passed some out today getting my sister food at del taco haha I gave some to the workers at the drive through window =]

  3. To All Who are New Here from my Class,

    There are about half a dozen atheists who post here and some are not very nice. So, if you get a negative comment or two, understand that these people do not know God and may be rather rude.

  4. Pastor Steve, I saw you on “on the box” a few weeks ago and absolutely loved the 2 shows that you were on. I try to watch “on the box” as much as possible. So far those 2 shows are my favorite. I have learned so much for watching you and reading your blog. Thank you for all that you do. I am very interested in your notes for the 10-week class! Can’t wait! One of my very first experiences of handing out tracks was almost 2 years ago at Halloween. I purchased the “kid” million dollar bills and the kids would run to their parents from my porch screaming “Hey mom, I got a dollar!!” Or, “Hey mom, I got a million dollars!!” It was great! I am a huge fan of the million dollar tracts and Ray and Kirk. Anyway, just wanted to say that you are such an encouragement and a great teacher! Blessings to you and your ministry! Amy from Alabama.

  5. Thank Amy! Make sure you send an email and I’ll get the notes out to you soon. (Remember, Jesus said he was coming soon.)

    For those tuning in here for the first time, “On the Box” is a web show from Way of the Master. I was on it two times awhile ago. You can watch the episodes by clicking here.

  6. “God using me wonderfully”
    I was riding my motorcycle on the way to church. A man cut me off & had a huge;”Jesus is Lord” sticker on his rear windshield. Well, another man passed me laughing because he saw what had happened.When we all were at the street-light; the man apoligized for cutting me off. I said;”not a problem”.The other man said;”You guys really are different”. Our Lord in action!!! Craig

  7. @ Jim

    Jim, do you have anything really constructive to say or discuss?

  8. @ Jim

    Jim, he calls you rude because you’re rude. This is Steve’s website, the fact that he allows you to speak on it is entirely up to him, and subject to his censorship at any point in time. The reason he probably doesn’t is because…

    He’s trying to be the bigger man and stick by that whole principle of freedom of speech despite all the rude comments you DO make.

    Taking the moral high ground makes you and your cause look better. If someone is spewing rude or nasty comments demeaning your cause and you turn the other cheek so to speak, you look that much better in the eyes your contemporaries.

    Ultimately your comments are self defeating Jim, so I’d recommend trying to be far more civil, far more constructive, and try and enlighten the conversation rather than reducing it to childish taunts and insults.

  9. GOOD morning!!
    Had the chance to give the Good News to a neighbor yesterday. He took the Million dollar bill and asked where could he cash it in. I told him when he gets to heaven. He said that he did not want to wait that long. So I said never know when your time is up, now is the best time to receive salvation and forgiveness from sin.He said he would think it over.
    “If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”” Luke 11:13 NIV

  10. Jim, you’re not doing that. You’re being completely childish and ultimately self defeating. The only thing you’re doing is making yourself sound like a rude and immature atheist and playing up to every stereotype Christians have of those people. Be the bigger and better person, because the worst way to convince someone of your point of view is to insult them and be belligerent about it, they end up resenting you and not taking anything you say with any consideration. Ultimately what you are doing might feel good and self satisfying but for everyone else its just eye rolling inducing and immature. If your real goal is to make atheists look bad and you’re just trolling, congratulations you’ve accomplished your mission, if your goal was something else besides this, you’ve pretty much failed at that.

  11. GOOD afternoon!!
    What a awesome day The Lord has made. I got to talk with a friend of mine today about Jesus, salvation, the need for forgiveness of sins and the Cross Jesus died on. (Via handing him a million dollar bill) Turns out my friend is a believer and has asked Jesus to live in his heart. Good to know there are people that know Christ that you might not have known about unless you ask. Now I know we both have the same Father in Heaven.

    Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains. You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near. Don’t grumble against one another, brothers and sisters, or you will be judged. The Judge is standing at the door! James 5:7-9

  12. The word intellectual in that statement you made Jim is key, you don’t win philosophical debates by insulting the people you’re speaking with. If you’re trying to make a point or raise an interesting point of discussion then do so, but just insulting Christians is childish and self defeating. In a battle of ideals you win by convincing the other side that your ideology is better and that they should adopt it in favor of the one they currently hold. You are not doing that Jim, you are just hurling insults for your own personal gratification and at the same time building sympathy for those you’re hurting with your words. Congratulations, self defeating, either come up with something interesting to say or walk away.

  13. I left one in the mailbox for the mailman with a note saying it was for him. =]

  14. “I saw an atheist and gave him a tract. He bared his fangs. I ran away.”

    This happened to me! But I never bared any fangs!

    I saw three or four middle-aged women get out of a mini-van in front of my house. When they walked to the door, I seriously thought they were lost and in need of directions. (The door-to-door evangelists are usually young adults, in pairs not groups, and walk house-to-house.) So, I was very surprised when they started evangelizing.

    I said, “Oh, that’s okay (big helpful smile). I’m an atheist.”

    There jaws dropped. The stood there for a moment without saying anything, then turned around, fled down my steps and into the mini-van and left.

    I felt really bad.

  15. Greetings in the name of Christ,
    I had the opportunity to give the GOOD NEWS to several people at the Santa Anna Zoo. What a great time discussing God’s creation and wondering how people believe in vain that we are descended from monkeys. I bet even the monkeys find it amusing how easily people believe what scientist tell them. At any rate The Word was made known and It will achieve it’s goal.

    Praise be to God,

    See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ. Colossians 2:8

  16. @Perdita

    Did you feel bad that you didn’t get a chance to turn the sprinklers on them?

  17. Did you feel bad that you didn’t get a chance to turn the sprinklers on them?

    lol – (At least I hope you were making a joke).

    I truly expected something like, “Well, okay. Bye!” or… I don’t know, just not to be treated like an object of fear.

    But they seemed completely side-swiped and treated me like I was Satan incarnate. I was still fairly new to the area and truly did not expect such a reaction.

  18. Love this class! After the first class was over, I decided to go and get some food from Carl’s Jr. I drove through the driveway and as the employee gave me back my change, I handed her a million dollar bill and said,” This is for you.” She smiled and said, “Thank you.” =)

  19. Yesterday I stopped in to a Ralphs grocery store before work. As I was leaving I saw a young mom with her little daughter and handed her a million dollar bill. I said, “I think you might need one of these.” She took it and said, “Thank you.” I told her to read the back of it because there is a very important question for her. =)
    After work that evening as I was at a light, I saw a homeless young man with a sign. Don’t remember what the sign said, but I called him over and gave him a real one dollar bill along with a million dollar bill. I told him to make sure he reads the back, it has a very important question for him! He said, wow..thanks.

  20. Saturday night I was out with my kids and I held the door for a few ladies walking out of a restaurant. They were so thankful (I don’t think men do that enough anymore), so I handed one of them a tract. The tract says “Judgment Day” really big on the front so many people are easily offended by it. She looked at it and thanked me and said Amen!

    Then my 8 year old son who had stuffed about 50 Bezeugen tracts in his wallet took a couple out and handed them to the other two ladies in the group. She looked and me and said, “Good job, Dad!”

    The encouragement I get sometimes from handing tracts to people who are already born-again is immense. And seeing my son have a desire to share Christ with others is so pleasing to me as well. It is always worth it, you will never regret trying to help someone know about Jesus; we will regret the times we didn’t.

  21. Good Afternoon,
    Was at the park this morning playing baseball with my two boys, and handing out million dollar bills. Succeeded in handing out around 20 bills in the name of Jesus. Most took it well when asked to read the back and answer the million dollar question. The people that did not take the bill, we prayed that someone else would share The Good News with them. God is GOOD!!

    One thing I ask from the LORD,
    this only do I seek:
    that I may dwell in the house of the LORD
    all the days of my life,
    to gaze on the beauty of the LORD
    and to seek him in his temple.
    For in the day of trouble
    he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
    he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
    and set me high upon a rock.
    Psalms 27:4-5

  22. Way to go Trisha!!!
    It’s not hard to be nice and share what is truly on your heart. Don’t stop spreading The Word!!!!!!!

  23. I had to go get my sweater from the car. So on the way back to see my wife who was in the mall I was able to pass out six tracts. This mall was in orange county. I was in a hurry and could only tell them that the bill had a question on the back.

  24. I ran up to a man. I gave him a gospel tract. Iwas so nervous I walked away kind of fast.

  25. “Matt, help me with my homework”, I asked my Christ-believing roommate. “Would you like to have a Million Dollar bill” we kidded. “There, go ask that police officer”, Matt joked back. I accepted the challenge as he agreed to pray for me as I hurried a short way over to the police officer down the street. “No” the police officer replied with a thanks and said that he already got about four of the million-bucks at the Hermosa Fair a couple of weeks ago. After four more “no’s” from a young girl, her mother, a jogger; finally the 2nd of two friends on their way to the beach took a bill with a “Thanks”. Matt and I are praying that God will use these witnesses to call many to Him.

  26. I went to a dentist appointment. I was talking with my nurse for a long while and as I was leaving I give her a gospel tract. She took it and smiled.

  27. Good Morning,
    Went for a walk with my boys to the library and placed tracts on parent’s car windows for the local grade school graduation. Also asked one person walking if he wanted a million dollars, he said no. On way back home I noticed none of the tracts were thrown on the ground. I’ll take that as a good sign.

    “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him;
    I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
    He will call on me, and I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble,
    I will deliver him and honor him.
    With long life I will satisfy him
    and show him my salvation.”

    Psalm 91:14-16

  28. What is up???

    Have the unbelieving atheists been defeated or are they sleeping or busy traveling or deeply thinking. Haven’t seen that many posts and was wondering what’s going on? Also one other question, do atheists only post on Christian blogs and sites or do they post on say Buddhists, Hindu, Muslim, or humanist sites? If so could you please post those sites that you frequent so I/people can monitor and post with you my fellow bloggers!!

    At noon Elijah began to taunt them. “Shout louder!” he said. “Surely he is a god! Perhaps he is deep in thought, or busy, or traveling. Maybe he is sleeping and must be awakened.” So they shouted louder and slashed themselves with swords and spears, as was their custom, until their blood flowed. Midday passed, and they continued their frantic prophesying until the time for the evening sacrifice. But there was no response, no one answered, no one paid attention. 1Kings 18:27-29

    At the time of sacrifice, the prophet Elijah stepped forward and prayed: “LORD, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, let it be known today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command. Answer me, LORD, answer me, so these people will know that you, LORD, are God, and that you are turning their hearts back again.”

    Then the fire of the LORD fell and burned up the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the soil, and also licked up the water in the trench.

    When all the people saw this, they fell prostrate and cried, “The LORD—he is God! The LORD—he is God!”

    Then Elijah commanded them, “Seize the prophets of Baal. Don’t let anyone get away!” They seized them, and Elijah had them brought down to the Kishon Valley and slaughtered there.
    1 Kings 18: 36-40

  29. God Rules!
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh[a]; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself. If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other!!

    Galatians 5 13-15

    Had to give a tract to myself today.
    Do I feel it taste it see it? Feel it??
    Not until I got to the question.
    Why do I need this harassment ? I thought nothing worth wile inside out value.

  30. Good Morning!!
    Was out handing out tracts a person took it and asked what it was about. I said it is a gospel tract and please read the million dollar question in the back. The person wanted to give back to me so I stuck my hands in my pockets and said go ahead and keep it I have more. He kept it and did not throw it on the ground. Good technique it really worked that time.

    Do not be surprised, my brothers and sisters, if the world hates you. We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love each other. Anyone who does not love remains in death. Anyone who hates a brother or sister is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him.
    1 John 3:13-15

  31. Yesterday I was with my friend Blanca and as we were heading into the elevator a man stopped me to ask a question after answering I handed him a tract and told him there was a good message on the back. He looked at it and smiled.

  32. Amen Brother Godfrey!

  33. Good Morning!
    Was out for daily walk and handed out several tracts and everyone took them and said thank you. I will be praying that they repent from their sins and receive Jesus as their lord and savior. What a privilege it is to be working for Jesus.
    Come Lord Jesus come!!!

    For the Lamb at the center of the throne
    will be their shepherd;
    ‘he will lead them to springs of living water.
    ‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.

    Revelation 7:17

  34. The other day I went to the supermarket with my mom. While walking in the direction of the store I passed one out to a woman handing out flyer’s. Later inside while selecting corn I began to talk to one of the produce men and at the end of our conversation I handed him a tract.

    Oh I’ve also been sending tracts to credit card companies (prepaid postage envelopes)! What a great idea 🙂

  35. I asked the worker at the Salvation Army pickup station if he was going to heaven. He answered, “I don’t know”. He refused the million dollar tract that I offered and said that he already has several of the same tracts at home. I asked him to read the back and shared that it contains the path to heaven. These three posts are from about twenty evangelism contacts that I had through the past week.

  36. A vendor at Costco was advising me on a very nice barbbeque/smoker. He accepted a millioin dollar tract as we parted and shared that he is a believer in the Lord as well. The salesman helped me reach my goal of handing out at least one gospel tract per day.

  37. I ran into a friend of my brother two days ago while I was out for a walk. She commented on the Hope Chapel T- shirt I was wearing and asked about the Church. She shared her distaste of religion because of some over-zealous religious family members in her upbringing. We chatted a little about the peace and purpose that Christ gives. She accpted a gospel tract as we parted ways. Sharing my faith with people that I know has a different set of difficulties. However, if I don’t learn to give this gospel that I have to people close to me then I don’t feel like much of a friend at all.

  38. This class has really pushed me to step out of my comfort zone from passing out tracts to even posting my experiences here. The class and the outreaches have really inspired me to want to share my faith with others and to start share my experiences here.

    The first tract I handed out was on June 26th at a restaurant. I really wanted to hand it to the waitress but couldn’t bring myself to do so, so I left it with the tip on the table and then quickly left the restaurant.

  39. The second tract I handed out was at the Redondo Beach Pier outreach I went to on July 1. Since I had yet to get up the courage to hand out tracts on my own I initially planed to just observe the others hand out tracts and witness to people at the pier and then maybe hand one out the next time around. I even told some of the people I was with my plan. Well that obviously wasn’t God’s plan. As we headed out towards the pier Eric handed me a tract and told me to give it to a dad and his son that was walking our way and without giving it much thought I did. The son was reluctant at first in taking the tract looking at his dad to see if it was okay and wound up taking it. I have to say that first tract is the hardest one to give. Thanks to Eric’s prompting I was able to do so. Once we got to the pier I noticed others giving out tracts so I decided on my own to give a few out and was rejected several times. I quickly got discouraged and decided to give it a break and just watch the others. Later on Eric stood in the middle of the pier and started preaching. I was amazed at his boldness to do that. That moment encouraged me to give handing out tracts another try. I actually succeeded in handing a few more tracts out before leaving and didn’t let the few who refused get me down. I felt really encouraged by everyone on that team as we were leaving and was even looking forward to joining them again next week.

  40. I went on my second outreach to the Redondo Beach pier today. I split off with Mirma (I think that was her name). After watching her hand out a few tracts I started to hand some out and it was much easier this time around. So much so that I lost count of how many I handed out. I also had the opportunity to share the million dollar question a couple of times. The first person was pressing us to exactly what was the message on the million dollar bill and so I replied it started with the million dollar question and told him what that was. He said yes because he was a Christian, thanked us and then left. Another person was equally curious and I replied as I did before and he smiled and kept on walking. I quite honestly had no intentions in sharing the million dollar question; I was still getting used to the idea of handing out tracts. It was totally God that made that possible. I also wanted to say Brian was real encouraging to me today and shared with me he felt the same way I have been feeling when he first started handing out tracts. It was neat to hear someone who had the same struggles in sharing their faith as I am now but persevered anyways. It is my desire to persevere as well and plan to join them again next Friday.

  41. I was out passing work flyer’s today and came across a bored receptionist. I handed him a tract, he responded wishing it was real money.

  42. Went to Marshalls today and spoke with the cashier for a long while. When it came time to leave I said “Here’s something you can read during your break” and gave him tract. He smiled and wished me a good day.

  43. Went to Staples yesterday. As I was leaving I noticed the security guard was looking quite bored so I gave him a tract. We both began to talk and I left him with an invitation to Hope Chapel 🙂

  44. Good evening,
    Was out at the park playing basketball with the boys. Ran into a man who had a son the similar age as my sons and started up a conversation. Gave him a Gospel tract and asked him the million dollar question. Turns out he claims to be a Christian. So I continue to follow the WDJD method. Much to my joy he answered the questions with Biblical correctness. I said nice to hear that and we are going to get together at the park later on next week.

    Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.

    1 Thessalonians 4:13-14

  45. I was leaving Target and gave a tract to the security guard. We began to talk and I eventually had to leave so I left him with an invitation to Hope Chapel.

  46. Good day,
    Had the chance to pass out several tracts at Jo Ann’s. Everyone recieved them well and I even had the chance to do WDJD the person said they were concerned about the afterlife and that they would think about it. I told then don’t wait to long and to read the rest of the Bible tract.

    Blessed are those whose ways are blameless,
    who walk according to the law of the LORD. Blessed are those who keep his statutes
    and seek him with all their heart—
    they do no wrong
    but follow his ways.

    Plalm 119:1-3

  47. As I was walking along in Playa Del Rey I gave a man a tract and wished him a good day. Hey gave a big smile and wished me a good day as well.

  48. Praise the Lord on Jennifer and Ray! Whoot on evangelism classes.

  49. Went out with the evangelism team to the Redondo Beach Pier July 22nd and handed out several tracts. This was my 3rd time going with them. It gets easier to hand tracts out each time I go.

  50. “I saw an atheist and gave him a tract. He bared his fangs. I ran away.”

    Wait, we get fangs!? How come nobody told me about this? (I do occasionally worry about catching fire when exposed to sunlight, but I think that has more to do with being a computer technician than an atheist.)

  51. Hello Pastor Steve,
    do you offer the class just to people in your assembly or is it advertised in the local paper and opened to everyone?

    When people drop out of the class, do they give a reason? Does anyone return to take the class again and finish it?


    • Hi Eric,

      Yes, the class is open to everyone! Our next 10 week course will be starting on Oct. 13.

      Very few offer a reason for dropping out. When I see them I say, “We miss you in the class.” At that point they will offer a reason (I don’t want to guilt them).

      Every so often people will retake the class and finish it.

      Thanks for asking!

  52. Good Morning,
    Handed out some tracts at the park. Asked the WDJD twice and took it through to the end but no decisions for Christ that day. I was reminded of how not to get down when someone refuses to tack a tract, it only means someone else will next.
    “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. Even now the one who reaps draws a wage and harvests a crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together. Thus the saying ‘One sows and another reaps’ is true. I sent you to reap what you have not worked for. Others have done the hard work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labor.
    John4: 34-38

  53. Good Morning,
    Was at Target and tried to hand out a tract to a employe, he refused and said he did not need a million dollars. I asked the million dollar question and he said heaven. Took him threw the WDJD said he was not concerned with being a lawbreaker and still thought God grades on a curve. I asked him to repent for the kingdom of God is at hand!!

    “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life. Very truly I tell you, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live. For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself. And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man.

    John 5:24-27

  54. Good Morning,
    Went to give a tract to person at the park and he refused, stating he did not want any of that “church c@#p”. I asked if he had received a million dollar bill before and if he knew what the tract was about. He said to go away and leave him alone so I did.

    Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
    1 Thessalonians 5: 1-3

  55. Good Afternoon,
    Was at the Galleria Mall handing out tracts when a saw a man with a Green Bay Packers T-shirt. Being a TRUE Packers Fan I struck up a conversation. Turns out he was visiting from Australia and his friend he was visiting with was from Milwaukee. I handed him a million dollar bill and said he could show it to his friends when he got back home. I told him it was a Gospel tract and had the million dollar question. He asked me what it was so I took him through the WDJD to include the Good News. He did not want to make a decision right now. I encouraged him to not wait because it is a long flight back home and anything can happen!!

    But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away.
    Matthew 24:36-39

  56. Went out with the evangelism team this past Friday to the Redondo Beach Pier. I handed out several gospel tracts. With much encouragement from Eric I stood on some steps and and proclaimed “Repent for the kingdom of Heaven is near.” I thought I would feel foolish after doing so but I didn’t. God is good!

    • Great job!! Nothing to it now!! Keep on with the keepin’ on!

      “‘Go to this people and say,
      “You will be ever hearing but never understanding;
      you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.”
      For this people’s heart has become calloused;
      they hardly hear with their ears,
      and they have closed their eyes.
      Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
      hear with their ears,
      understand with their hearts
      and turn, and I would heal them.’

      Acts 28:27 Isaiah 6:9,10

      • Thanks for the encouragement. I enjoy reading your e-vanigie tales on here. Keep up the good work!

  57. Good Night,
    WOW!! what a wonderful day as a soldier in The Army of The Lord. I was up and at it early at a park in Torrance. I was minding my children and pushing them on the swings. A mom and her small daughter set up camp near where we were and I asked if she knew the million dollar question? She said yes and that her faith was in Christ alone. I asked if had you ever heard of Ray Comfort and WDJD? Mom said yes and we began to talk about our LOVE for Christ. As the day progressed other moms began to setup in the area, and my new mom friend and I began to develop a relationship with then through our shared experiences with our children. We then began through our witness to share the Gospel with them. There was anxiety, doubt, and questioning by the moms, but we found common ground in The Bible and together we went through the WDJD good news asked the question. Have you ever trusted Jesus like a parachute like your life depended on it, and they said not really. There were three moms and there assorted children listening to the GOOD NEWS!!!!!! It felt awesome to have a in-promptitude conversation about salvation with people that may have thought they were Christian but did not know they were sinners in need of a savior.

    Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.”
    John 6:35-40

    • Praise God! I take my children to the park several times a week and plan to start handing tracts out when I go too. Thanks for the inspiration.

  58. I went out with the evangelism team this past Saturday to the Redondo Beach Pier and lost count of how many tracts I handed out 🙂 I even asked the million dollar question several times.

  59. While at the Redondo Beach Pier with the evangelism team I had my first one to one. A man asked me about the tract and I told him the million dollar question and he really wanted to hear more about it so used the WDJD method to share the gospel with him. He said he would definitely think about it. It was the first time I had ever done this and my heart was pounding afterward. I am glad I was with the team when I did this for the first time because they really encouraged me afterwards and told me I did great. I always thought if I tried this I would mess up some how but God was good and definitely gave me the words to say. I give Him all the glory for this one.

  60. I had one other one to one while at the Redondo Beach Pier this past Saturday with the evangelism team. When I asked another man the million dollar question he said his pastor told him that no one knows for sure if they are going to Heaven or not and that it is totally up to God to decide who goes to Heaven or Hell. I told him there was a way to know for sure and shared the gospel with him using the WDJD method. He had to get going so I told him to think about what I said and to read the book of John in his Bible. Praise God for giving me this opportunity and courage to speak to him.

  61. I finally open-air preached. I pulled my truck over to ask the lady sitting on the bus bench if she wanted to get blessed by hearing the Bible. She said “yes” but first we split my Apple Friter in half and ate that. While we were eating a man sat on a curb that was near the bench. Then Sung Ho a fellow member of my morning prayer group stopped her car to exchange hellos. There was my crowd of three. I stood on the bench and proclaimed: “Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.” I repeated this three times, once toward each person. I sat back down and the man got up from the curb and walked by leaning pretty close in towards me with an intimidating look. As he was passing he said “You know God is not the only way”. This inspired to post back up onto the bus bench. As another man was walking by I stood and repeated pretty loud “Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand”. I turned and saw my roommate who was working. He was a pretty good distance across the parking lot. I took that opportunity to shout the same thing loud enough for him to hear. By the time my roommate came over to investigate the situation he was there to share in the Bible reading and also brought our number of people back up to three. I continued standing on the bus bench and read Psalm 1 to my audience. I had fun. I shook hands with the woman I previously didn’t know. The man with the intimidating look also accepted my handshake as we parted ways and all said our good-byes.

  62. To all my classmates,
    Thanks for sticking it out and finishing the class. I know it’s sometimes difficult to make it to class all the time, but I’m confidant that God will honor our commitment to doing His will. In truth the journey is just starting for us, so let’s not forget the things we learned and keep on spreading the GOOD NEWS!! I certainly hope all of us will be found doing what Jesus told us to do when he returns!!!

    Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
    Hebrews 12:1-3
