Went to take my dog Lilly to get groomed, but I didn't have her rabies paperwork, so they wouldn't take her. Instead of getting upset, I ended up giving all the groomers Million Dollar Bills saying, “Thanks a million!” They all laughed really hard.
As I was walking out I saw two cashiers talking to one another at the cash register and since there was no one in line I decided to give them Millions too. One girl read the million dollar question on the back out loud, so I said, “You guys know where you’re going when you die?” The one girl, Leilani, professed the Lord really strong with a very strong gospel message; the strongest one I've heard in a while that had a lot of zeal and passion for the Lord. She unashamedly said the Gospel in front of her co-worker Kaitlyn. Then a customer came up to Kaitlyn’s register, but I could tell that God was really working on her. She said, “I hope I go to heaven when I die,” with a lot of concern in her eyes. Leilani offered to take her customer for her, and I ended up talking to Kaitlyn for a good 15 minutes or longer as she confessed all kinds of things to me. Then we both almost started crying and she said, “It's my son's one year birthday today and here you are talking to me.” I explained to her what it meant to be born again and that God wants her to have a birthday. She ended by telling me that she never works the front cash register, which Leilani confirmed. I'm glad that I missed that appointment and that they couldn't take Lilly in. Romans 8:28.

Have you seen my friend Ray Comfort's book "101 Things Dogs Do To Annoy Their Owners"? It's a hilarious read, and contains the gospel, so my friend used it one day as a gospel tract:
"I was waiting my turn at the salon when I heard the lady before me talking about the radiation treatments she is currently going through. She blasphemed a few times too. Then somehow the subject of her dog came up. Turns out she adopted it from a shelter after it had been tied to some railroad tracks in Dallas, but thankfully was rescued by the train conductor. The story made the news apparently.
I thought, 'This blaspheming dog lover that's going through a life-threatening event really needs the gospel.' I checked my bag and thankfully had a copy of '101 Things Dogs Do To Annoy Their Owners.' She loved it.
That was the first copy I've handed out since I got my order the other day. Didn't take long to find just the right person." :-)

After church one Sunday, my husband told me about the membership meeting he had just been in for a dear sister that had been attending our services for several months. She is from another country, speaks good English and has an adorable accent.
She rightly told him that “living for Christ is going to cost you something.” She went on to expound in detail about how she lost her childhood friend because she didn't want her talking about the Lord any more. She told her friend in her cute accent, “You can try to cover my mouth all you want, but a little bubble message will come out of my lips and it will tell of the gospel.” She giggled and said that she then told her, “Sorry, but my love for the Lord is only going to get worse (stronger) over time.”
And that was the end of their relationship. Her friend never wanted to speak to her again.
Saints, we shouldn’t be surprised by this; Jesus told us this would happen and to count the cost. Always remember His words in Matthew 10:34-36, “Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. “For I came to SET A MAN AGAINST HIS FATHER, AND A DAUGHTER AGAINST HER MOTHER, AND A DAUGHTER-IN-LAW AGAINST HER MOTHER-IN-LAW; and A MAN’S ENEMIES WILL BE THE MEMBERS OF HIS HOUSEHOLD.”

I was at the store last Friday night picking up some goodies for our weekly prayer meeting. I gave tracts to the people in the check out line and was heading for the exit when I saw a man standing there waiting. He wasn't very clean cut.
"He's a tract hater for sure. He's going to yell at me and throw it right back in my face," I told myself.
I shakily gave him a tract, exited the store, and hoped for the best. I made it as far as the Girl Scouts selling cookies right outside, when I heard, "Excuse me." I turned around and it was the tract hater. He put the tract right in my face and said, "This is a FANTASTIC way to share the gospel!" I couldn't believe my ears. His face was radiant. He was totally unashamed of the gospel and was going on and on about it right in front of the Girl Scouts.
I guess God was reminding me not judge a book by its seemingly tract hating cover. :-)

I have a friend that loves evangelism and who goes to the same neurologist and MRI place as I do. At one point we both had appointments at both places, either days or hours apart from each other. I was up first at the neurologist and called her after my appointment to tell her how it went and that the doctor professes to be a Christian, and also to let her know which tracts I had passed out, which included giving all the staff copies of Ray Comfort’s Evolution vs. God DVD. I did that so that she would be sure to give out different tracts since we have the same ones. A few days later at her appointment, she did just that, including giving out copies of The Biggest Question DVD. The staff must’ve thought that God was really trying to get their attention.
Then the neurologist sent me to have an MRI. I had never had an MRI before and was pleased when they told me to bring headphones and they would play any music I wanted to listen to off of the Internet.
On the day of my appointment the technician asked me what music I wanted. “It will play throughout the room too,” she said.
Hearing that immediately changed things;
“I want to listen to Hell’s Best Kept Secret,” I said. Since the staff would hear it play also, I decided I would let the audio clip do the witnessing for me.
After I had been in the machine for a while, the technician piped into my headphones to ask how I was doing. “I’m fine. Are you listening?” I asked.
“Oh, yes. We can hear everything,” she said.
After Hell’s Best Kept Secret ended I had them play True and False Conversion, and then left them all with tracts when I was done.
I called my friend to tell her what had happened. My friend has had several MRIs, but this place was new to her. She was excited and said that none of the MRI places she’s been to offer music; that she always just sat in the machine listening to the banging noise. At her appointment she (and the staff) listened to two movies by Ray Comfort, Genius and Noah. Eternity will show the reward. :-)

Got this email from a friend:
"Told my daughter that I want her to come with me when I witness to my mom (her grandmother) 'because you know the apostles were told to go out in groups of two.'
She said, 'I'm not a very good apostle, so take Trish.'
Lol. I told her that you're not a very good apostle either."
