Garrett in Guyana: Day 7

Pastor Roger Jimenez has a great soul-winning training seminar on video.

Foundation Baptist Church has a hospital ministry, and on Day 7 Brother Garrett Kirchway got to work in that ministry. It was Brother Kirchway and two other guys, and they preached the Gospel at two different hospitals.

Here’s how they do it there: First they pass out tracts to everyone sitting in the waiting area, and then someone preaches a Gospel message to the group. After that, they have an invitation where they ask for a show of hands of people who aren’t sure they are going to Heaven. Those who raise their hand are given the opportunity to be dealt with in a more personal way with an even more thorough presentation. Eight people were willing to come forward and listen to the Gospel that day, and three of those eight people got saved. After that, Brother Garrett Kirchway went soul-winning with the pastor of a different church in another part of town, and they got two more people saved.

That night they had the Wednesday night church service at another church that is showing Pastor Jimenez’ Soul Winning Seminar on Wednesday nights, and the people are really enjoying it. I am always glad to hear about churches using that course since it is such an excellent resource for learning to present the Gospel in a thorough way. It also has a lot of practical tips for being polite out soul-winning that you may have never even thought about.

Pastor Jimenez of Verity Baptist Church in Sacramento has been soul-winning every week since he was a kid, so he really knows his stuff. If you haven’t watched the videos yet, I encourage you to take the time to watch them—even if you are already an experienced soul winner.

A lady that Brother Garrett won to the Lord out soul-winning showed up to church on Wednesday night, which was a blessing. I definitely look forward to the updates from Brother Garrett each day, and I’m excited about what God is going to do through his preaching during the 40-day revival.

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Matthew 28:19-20

I couldn't find anyone that prints good Gospel tracts, so I did what many churches do. I printed my own tracts. Write down the gospel that you give when you go door-to-door. Condense it so that it will fit onto the tract. I lay it out using tables in Microsoft Word. Use a high quality laser/toner printer, so that the ink won't run if it gets wet. I use a razor sharp chopper to cut the tracts. Finally, fold and staple and you're done. To make the tract more striking, I like to use thicker scrapbook paper for the cover (I prefer the cloud pattern).

Thanks. That's what I will do.
