Dear Ones in Christ,
Spanish speaking multitudes are crossing
our borders and flooding our country.
But they`re not the only ones. People
are coming from nearly every country on
earth. Do we see them as a hazard —or a
field of souls ready for a harvest?
Tract evangelists who are obeying
the great commission (Go ye into all the
world and preach the gospel to every
creature) are discovering the openness of
these people. They find them eager to
read these little gospel tracts.
When we are able to get them into
prisons, a favorite among Spanish
speakers is Gomez is Coming. On the
streets, they love Tiny Shoes which
is also popular in Mexico and Latin
America. But then, they will take any
Spanish tract gratefully. It is so easy
to pass out these tracts to the Spanish
Spanish-speakers are not the only ones
coming to our shores. We are beginning
to hear more and more foreign languages
on our streets. What immigrant groups
are in your town? They are often anxious
to learn more about their new home
and its customs, and will accept a tract
with gratitude, especially if it is in their
language. Our nation, with its personal
freedoms, will offer them plenty of
chances to learn about sin. Let`s make
sure they hear about Jesus!
One thing that puzzles me is when I
hand a tract to a believer and they say,
"No, thank you. I`ve already read that,"
and turn it down, instead of saying,
"Great! I`ll pass it on to someone else."
The unspeakable joy in heaven will
be to meet the Lord Jesus, Himself, and
those who have gone on before us. But
another great joy will be when someone walks up to you and says, "I`m in heaven
because you gave me a gospel tract."
Beloved, don`t turn from these precious
souls crossing our borders. Give them
the glorious gospel. This is a golden opportunity. With tracts, you can do it
even if you don`t speak their language.
Your brother in Christ,
