GREAT IDEA! - GIVING AWAY REAL LIFE STORIES BOOKS AS HALLOWEEN GIFTS!

Jesus Did It!

 

By: Michelle and Airel Otero

I just wanted to share with you the enjoyable experience my daughter and I had on Halloween last evening! (Oct. 31, 2011)  We received two cases of Real Life Stories Testimony Books - Lighthouse Edition from www.step-by-step.org - 88 copies (A box for me and one for my daughter).  We thought of the different times and places we would be handing these books out.  We where planning on going to a " trunk or treat" for our Halloween night.  Then we talked and decided - because we are new to the neighborhood - we would probably do better reaching our community by staying home and passing out candy and books in the Salt Creek Commons Subdivision here in Valparaiso, Indiana.

Little to our surprise, the books where a big hit!  As little ones came to the door and got candy, I simply said to the parents: "Hey - you do all the work walking your children around.  You deserve something too!"

Not only the shock and surprise on their faces that they themselves where receiving something , but the gratitude in their voices .... "Really?  Thanks!  This is for me? That's really thoughtful."  - where most of the responses I received!

But for me the most shocking where the teenagers who where behind the little kids that said, "Hey - can I have one if those books?  I'd rather have a book than candy."
So my daughter in turn gave them a book AND candy and we wished them a Happy Halloween!  That was one of the many experiences we had!

I must share this one with you because it was quite funny. A group of teenage boys came up (about six of them).  I looked at them, and having a teenage boy myself, I asked, "Do you get grounded a lot?"

They all laughed and said, "Yea!"

I told them, "I kind of thought so."  I then said,  "Well here's a book for you so when your mom grounds you, you can surprise her and say ... "Well Mom - I already have a book to read. And it will help my attitude!"

They responded, "Awesome! That's cool!"

As they walked off, I wished them well and told them if they had any questions, they know where I live and are welcome back anytime with their questions. They thought that was pretty cool.

Needless to say we went through two cases of books pretty quickly. My husband came back with our little ones after only an hour and said,  "Wow!  Did you really give away all those books already!?"

"Well dear...yes we did!!"

What a wonderful way to spend Halloween!  My daughter and I had a good time bonding on the porch, and we had a good time talking to the people in our community! But not only did we talk to them -- we offered to them what no one else did that night and that was hope!  Hope found in a little testimony book of what Christ has done in so many lives just like them!

I'm excited to see what Christ will do with the very tool He entrusted us with!  And with the people so willing to receive them!

Staff Note:  Both Michelle's and Airel's testimonies are in this Real Life Stories Testimony Book - Lighthouse Edition on pages 15 and 141.

 

The evangelistic ministries of www.step-by-step.org and www.precious-testimonies.com  have teamed up and are working with Christ-centered church fellowships to make these REAL LIFE STORIES Testimonies Books available as self-witnessing evangelistic tools in their respective areas to help reach lost souls.  If your church fellowship is interested in the possibility of producing a REAL LIFE STORIES Testimonies Book to be made available in YOUR area -- by testimonies from your church fellowship -- be encouraged to contact Evangelist Jim Barbarossa and ask him any questions you may have.  You can learn more about it on this link:  Real Life Stories Testimony Book From Your Church

In the meantime, these REAL LIFE STORIES testimony books can be used to help expand the Kingdom of God in your locality, simply by making these books available in your church fellowship.  An inserted message or hand-written message can be placed on the inside cover of each book, saying something to the effect:  "This book was made available by "Your Church, Address, and Contact Information. Consider stopping in and visiting us.  We CARE about your potential in Christ Jesus, and would be blessed to be used of God to help develop it!"

Be sure to check out this link if you represent a church or a ministry:  Sharing The Real Life Stories Testimony Book Vision

In a very tangible and fruitful way, these REAL LIFE STORIES testimony books are taking The Cardboard Testimony Concept off the church fellowship stage and putting them out into the highways and byways in your community for the Holy Spirit to work in the heart's of people who aren't attending a local church fellowship - yet.

These REAL LIFE STORIES testimony books are also a great way to help reach lost souls and advertise your business at the same time. If you are a business owner, why not make these books available to your customers?  You never know how much God will bless your business by your willingness to help expand HIS Kingdom in such a tangible way!  You can glue a business card inside the book so people know where the book came from.  You can even sell the book to make a little extra profit for your business, if you're so inclined, just like individuals can do.

If you are a business owner who sounds interested in this evangelistic opportunity, brother Jim will send you a complimentary copy of the book at no cost.  Simply give him a call at 219-762-7589, or you can email him and request a copy at: jim@step-by-step.org

You can order a box of 44 books (book display holder - picture shown top right - will be included) for a donation of $.80 a copy to help cover printing costs, plus if you help cover the shipping cost to your area, that too would be greatly appreciated.  Give brother Jim a call!

Dear Reader - are you at peace with God?  If not, you can be.  Do you know what awaits you when you die?  You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain.  Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!  And no one can prove He didn't.).  Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God?  We plead with you...please don't make such a tragic mistake.

To get to know God, to be at peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God.  What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one.  Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life, because in Christ, it is impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.
