Combining RR-BB.com into RaptureForums.com

Because it has become insanely difficult to manage a bulletin board these days, the managers of Rapture Ready and Rapture Forums have decided to join our boards together under a software program that is easier to manage. Because RF has their database operating well under an Enforo license, we decided to make Rapture Forums the focal point of a consolidation. Since Chris, the owner of RF, has long experience in running a forum, he can better manage the problems that come with this technology.

If you do not have an account at https://www.raptureforums.com/forums/, please sign up. By the end of November, it will become the forward address of RR-BB.com

I saw a few people and invited them to the revival in a friendly manner while giving them a little something to read later. They seemed receptive. I noticed that at one of the cars where I left a tract, a lady who left the store, got in the car and sat there reading it for quite a while. Somehow I'm starting to feel more of an urgency about this, and I know I'm not alone my friends. At the book store where I bought my last tracts the guy who checked me out said tract sales were up. and I can attest that the volume has dwindled, though they are getting more in.
    I just remembered. I was in the magazine and book section at walmart and thought of the suggestions I saw on here about leaving tracts in books,so I did that as well as in some Cosmopolitans and the pull out section of some mens exercise and sports magazines. I'm praying before I go out "tracting" these days too. It's a little scary sometimes.

    • This is such a wonderful thread!

      As I see, God has planted the same ideas in Christians in other parts of the world. I too do it the same ways like You since many years. Here are my additions:


      Put a folded tract in an empty matchbox and put matches over it. Then open it a bit so that the matches are visible. Then "forget" the matchbox on the table of a cafe, restaurant, etc. The next guest will see it and take it.

      Make a message in a bottle with a tract and throw it in the sea, a river etc.

      Wrap a tract around the stem of a rose, tie a nice bow around it, and hand it out with a smile to strangers. Say something like "Somebody who loves You has told me to give You this rose". Smile again and disappear quickly (I love the look on their faces!). You can also put the rose under the windshield wiper when just nobody is looking.

        • I like to leave tracts and bibles in the little chappel room at my local hospital. Many people go there to pray when they are seaking God for the first time because of tragic things happening. The one at my local hospital is a little room the size of a coat closet with no windows, 4 chairs, an alter, an antique King James bible that nobody will touch, and fake stained glass windows that really just have light bulbs behind them. Not very comforting, so I go there as much as possible and leave bibles on every chair that are bookmarked and highlighted, with a salvation tract and invitation to my church in each one.

          • It's so good to know that there are fellow "tracters" out there (people who use tracts regularly). I always have tracts in my pocket, and I also keep two or three Spanish tracts. I've found Hispanic people almost always take a tract. I don't speak Spanish, but I know enough to say, "Hablas espanol?" They get a big smile and say, "Si!" I then hand them a Spanish tract, and they always take them. I go for a walk on my lunch break, and I walk through a residential neighborhood, and there are a lot of Hispanic people mowing lawns, and they're usually more than happy to accept your tract.

              • Suggestions for any good ones? In the past, I have given delivery drivers a small booklet called, Heaven, from Eternal Perspective Ministries, written by Randy Alcorn. It's a brief summary of his larger book, also called Heaven, and at the back, the gospel is clearly presented. I have also handed out Spanish versions of this same booklet, 'Cielo' and the Hispanics for the most part are fairly receptive.
                Sometimes, I think I'd like to try something different, and would like to hear what others have used successfully. You've probably heard of (and maybe even read) John Blanchard's small booklet called, 'Ultimate Questions' that can be ordered from Mulitlanguage Media in just about any language. I've also used that when wanting to witness to someone with a more 'unique' native language. Most people who have immigrated to USA will enjoy reading just about anything in their native language, so that is a great mission field right here at home.
                Thanks.

                • Recently I've been using several different tracts from Ray Comfort's Living Water store (they're located locally here in Bellflower, but you can order online at www.livingwaters.com); the tracts are under the "Store" tab. They have several tracts that are the size of a business card, which slide perfectly on a car door, between the window and the rubber weather strip (right above the door handle). I actually got this idea seeing a guy putting flyers for a club or rave on a bunch of cars, and thought, "What a great idea..." It's hard to ignore the tract, and I've found that people generally don't like litering, so they'll usually take the tract and put in in their pocket. I've watched people come to their car, take the tract off the door, sit down in the car and read the tract. Also, these small business card-sized tracts fit perfectly in the credit card slot at gas station pumps; after I'm done putting gas, I always slide one in (leaving it partway out), so the next person can find it. Also, if you sign up for Ray Comfort's email, every Friday they send out an email with several of their tracts on sale. So, whenever I want to stock up, I wait until one of the tracts I like is on sale, and buy a bunch of them.

                  Another tract I like is the Smile Jesus Loves You booklet from www.sowersofseed.com; if you buy in bulk, the tracts are 4 cents a piece, which isn't too bad, considering it's a little booklet, not just a piece of paper. I like those because you can leave them somewhere (park bench, bus stop, etc.) and the wind won't take them.

                    I use this booklet also. I carry several in my car along with other tracts. Once I went into a truck stop while we were traveling and when I paid I gave the cashier a copy of the Heaven booklet. She was thrilled and wanted to know if I had others because she wanted to give them to other co-workers who she had been trying to witness to. So, I went to the car and brought her several in. It was a great encouragement to know that others were trying to witness and I was glad to help.

                        I wasn't saved by a Tract but finding one about five years ago on a park bench is what gave me the idea to start using them. So, you never know. Someone who is already saved may find one or use the one you give them to witness to someone else. I've even told people I've given them to that if they can't use it to share it someone else.

                        • Thanks everyone for the suggestions. Living Waters is a good site for evangelistic materials. I may even have some of their tracts that I forgot I had. so thanks for the reminder.

                          • Some great ideas here. BTW, anyone care to share what they usually say at times when they actually hand them to someone? What words/approach are people most receptive to?

                            Thank you, Mary Rae, for your lovely picture!

                            • Well, I like to put a Scripture Booklet in a bag of candy, and hand the candy out. "Help From Above" is a good one. http://www.wmpress.org/bksavail.shtml

                              "I got you candy" and "I'd love to give you some candy". Some people take out the booklet for themselves and give the candy, back.

                              • When I am paying bills I put them in the envelope along with my check... I also have a shop on etsy and when I make a sale I include a tract with my business card.
