Chick tracts continue to lengthen the reach of foreign missionaries. One example is in Zambia where Andrew and Jill Schultz work. Looking for an opportunity to get a lot of gospel out at once, they discovered a local trade fair where they could erect a display booth. These pictures show how the people responded to the thousands of tracts and New Testaments given out.
The first day was quiet with vendors still setting up. However, visitors included a Muslim family who came with questions about "Christians" and, beside discussion, agreed to receive tracts and literature.
On the second day, the crowds picked up. A thousand tracts were taken and 9 people accepted Christ. "We have great liberty to witness not only in our booth but also to people walking throughout the fair," Schultz reported in an email. The third day was even busier: "Today we saw 5 people accept Christ as their Savior. Over 2,500 Chick tracts were distributed, and the Gospel was shared with many personally, one-on-one."
Through the Mission Fund, Chick customers have placed millions of Chick tracts into the hands of missionaries worldwide.
They report that saturation with tracts often stirs hearts enough that churches are easy to plant as a result. And it multiplies from there. The people already know how effective tracts are in extending the outreach of the new church.
