It's that time of the year!  The weather will be warming up very soon.  The time is coming when all the world will be out and about enjoying the weather and Melissa and I plan on taking full advantage of that.  We have just ordered our tracts for the coming 'season' if you will.  1,600 will be headed in our direction soon and I am excited to get started.  We also have the business cards we had printed this winter and so running out of ammunition simply will not happen.  It is time to go man-fishing!

The Plan:  We will be regularly stuffing envelopes and sending tracts, systematically working our way through the phone book.  We will probably first start by sending one to every apartment in our new apartment complex and then go to the phone book.  We will also be all over the city, seeking the crowds, so we can distribute as much literature as possible.  We will be making efforts to get into one on one conversations with people as we do this of course.

You'd better hurry up!  Before you know it, it will be Winter again and then you'll be using the same old excuse, "It's too cold!" and be regretting that you didn't go out last Spring.   A desire to do something obtains nothing.  If you truly cannot go out, then please pray for us as we go.  We could use some envelope stuffers.


  1. That's great! It sure is easy to talk about lots of plans to get out and do things for the Lord, but all too often we stop there. The lost world isn't helped at all if we only ever sit in our comfortable living rooms discussing with the church the best possible way to spread the gospel...

  2. Let me clarify something: I think that comment sounded sort of unkind. It was not meant to sound that way. I wasn't saying that's all our church does..."Living rooms" gives that impression, though. I simply meant it's easy to talk, but talk alone does not benefit. It's wonderful to see people living it. I'm grateful that the church does. I'm grateful you both do. I apologize if the above comment came across wrongly.

  3. It didn't come across as 'mean'. What you said is true.
