One great way to communicate the Gospel is through the printed page. It's not at all confrontational, for anyone who wishes to read it may do so and anyone who is not ready to receive the truth of the Good News may leave it lay for some other person to find. Some Christians claim that Gospel tracts don't work, that they're a waste of time, money and paper. But are they? Today I read about a missionary couple in Kenya, J.T. and Kayse Strong, who have distributed many tens of thousands of tracts among the people of that nation. J.T. said, "We have our ministry contact information printed on the back of the tracts and receive thousands of call and text messages of people desiring to be saved, to know more about Jesus, or to receive a Bible." The Strongs have a shipment of another 20,000 tracts en route to them. Some will be handed directly to people, and others may be left in places where folks may conveniently find them. Many people, even many in the United States, have said their lives were changed when God worked on their hearts through a tract they'd found somewhere. Not everyone is prepared to preach the Gospel directly (sadly this is true, for we disciples of Jesus Christ should have our feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel of peace, Eph. 6:15), but just about anyone can drop a little booklet tract on a countertop, a table, or any place where it may be found and read. Nowadays, effective Gospel tracts can even be downloaded for free and printed at home on an ordinary sheet of paper. Or a well-versed Christian could write one up himself. Evangelism doesn't get any easier than scattering printed 'little witnesses.'
