A friend of mine stopped by today and noticed one of the pocket testaments sitting on the coffee table. He asked me if it had anything to do with nascar since it had the checkered flag on the cover. I took that as an opening for witnessing. I told him that God is about everything including NASCAR. He said that he did notice that an opening prayer before the races was given, but he figured it was just done due to tradition. I told him that God is and should always be part of everybody's daily tradition. Well this conversation went on for a couple of hours as we took turns reading from the pocket testament aloud. After we finished reading a few chapters, my friend surprised me by asking if I can help him accept God into his life. I told him yes, but then I pointed out that he actually started the process himself by asking about the pocket testament. He chuckled and agreed. After that, we both prayed together and my friend accepted Jesus as his one true Messiah. He will be joining us this sunday for church.... Thank you for giving us all this powerful tool to be used with our witnessing!

Sharing these Gospels of John is a unique opportunity. I gave one recently to a friend. He and I have talked about his need for Christ several times lately. I gave him a copy of the Gospel of John and ask him to read it. He came back a few days later and told me that he had gone to church and gave his life to Jesus. He told me that reading the story of Jesus touched him like nothing else could have ever done. Thank you for allowing me to give my friend this greatest of all gifts.

I have wanted to start "missionary" work for a few months now, but was not sure how. I heard on a Focus on the Family broadcast about these booklets. I hope to use them as an aid to spread the good news of Jesus to those He puts in my path. Or maybe I will go out and pass them out somewhere. Thank You for this opportunity.
