No problems at all!

Yesterday was a tough day. My desktop computer broke down. It wouldn't start so I had to resort to my laptop, that's on it's last leg (when I hit the power cord, slightly, it shorts out). In the midst of all this, I was listening to the ESV bible on MP3 and then the batteries died (I guess I better get with the times and get an ipod or something). Then I looked over at my adorable dog, Baby, and she was making a weird noise as if she was going to get sick...then all of a sudden I saw a big mess on the floor. She must have ate something bad.

But instead of complaining, I rejoiced at the fact that I had a laptop to resort to, that I live in a free country where I can listen to the Word freely, without persecution, and that I have enough paper towels in my kitchen to clean up my dog's mess. I am so grateful to live in America!

Then I began to think upon the fact that I am saved from Hell through the work of what Christ did on the cross. What a dreadful day it will be for those that die in their sins without Him. In actuality, I have no problems at all! Oh and by the way Baby is fine :-)

Questions for a Professing Christian:

Here are some questions that I use from time to time when I encounter someone who is a professing Christian:

1. Do you share your faith?
2. Do you go out of your way to share your faith with strangers?
3. What do you say to people when you witness?
4. Do you ever mention judgment day?
5. Do you ever mention Hell?
6. Why should someone become a Christian? (What do they get out of it)?
7. Who in your life isn't saved or born again? Where will he/she go if he/she dies without Christ? 8. If a blind man were walking toward a 1000 ft cliff, what would you do? Let Him know about a good church? Warn him about the cliff?
9. If a non-Christian is unknowingly headed toward eternal Hell, What should you do? Invite him to church? Warn him about Hell?
10. When was the last time you read your Bible?
11. How often do you read your Bible?
12. How does someone to become a Christian?

Feel free to copy and paste this list and carry it with you. It might help jog your memory right before you go out to witness. These questions will come in handy especially if you are living in the bible belt like me. :-)

Roll with the punches...

I am always impressed with how Ray Comfort and Todd Friel are able to adapt to whoever I bring on the show for my fishing segments. They never know who they are going to witness to and it doesn't matter. They just seem to know what to say every time.

The obvious goal for each fishing segment is to find unbelievers. Which is what I always try to do. But as you can imagine, each week I face different scenarios and with limited time and living in the bible belt (everyone claming to be a "Christian") sometimes I just have to roll with the punches and put the closet person to me on the air. Speaking of roll--where you listening to the segment where I was in the cockpit of a race car and I referred to the bars inside of the cage as "crow bars" instead of "roll bars".... Silly me I even spelled it out loud, over the radio! C-R-O-W. Hilarious! I knew the correct name but apparently my brain was checked out to lunch. Later that night, I called my dad (who is a race car driver) and we both laughed about it. Of course he said I should have known better :-)
Back to the second segment of last week on The Way of the Master Radio...

Here is what happened. I saw a group of youth (as I was driving by) outside of a Pentecostal Holiness church. They were playing volleyball. We stopped the car with only about 7 minutes to spare before air time. Hoping to find someone (not a Christian) to be on the radio. I jumped out of the car and everyone, playing volleyball, stopped and came over to me.

Within seconds I was surrounded with at least a dozen people. I explained what we were doing and that's when Israel (a young man) raised his hand and said, "Sure I'll be on the show!" Then he dropped his head with a shy smile as all the youth cheered him on for his bravery.

We went inside the church because it was windy outside. After I handed the phone to Israel I went back outside to talk with all the others and to my surprise they were piled into a one single maroon Ford truck as well as gathered outside, around it. I laughed at the sight. The radio was blaring from inside the truck and now all I could hear was Ray talking to Michael (the senior pastor) and asking him, "Have you ever used the 10 Commandments while sharing your faith?"

After the show I had a captive audience and shared, with the group, why using the 10 Commandments in evangelism is so important and that no one is "good", that we have all broken the law....etc...etc. I could tell that Michael had never been exposed to anything of this sort. He was really listening.

The group huddled together and I demonstrated several tracts--they enjoyed the Curved Illusions (no surprise). I handed Michael a couple episodes from the ministry and thanked him for his time. He said that he would watch them as well as go online and listen to Hell's Best Kept Secret (which he had never heard before).

I made myself available to go back and do a One Day Seminar( Pastor Mike seemed interested. Will see what happens.

Not so interested

I finally found someone to be on the segment last week. For those of you that were listening, you know that I was having a very difficult time finding someone to be on the air. I have learned to be very flexible and not take it to heart. After all the poor people that get stopped by me are probably pretty nervous or shy or just think I am crazy :-) I guess it makes for good radio. We are all in suspense--wondering who is going to be on the air.

I turned around and this young man (Jeremy) was walking towards me (he was one of the workers at the car wash) so as a last resort, as I was on the air, I quickly explained what we were doing. He nodded in agreement and held his hand out to take the phone. I was relieved.

While Jeremy was on the phone, there was a long line of cars backed up of people waiting to get their cars washed. I quickly went up to each car and made a motion with my hand as if I was rolling down the window and one by one each car followed my directions. I handed the driver a Million Dollar Bill and said, "You're probably wondering why there is such a long line to get your car washed, well one of the workers is live on radio. Right now! And you, too, can tune into 91.3 and listen!" Before I new it there were ten different cars tuning into to the station. All hearing the same gospel message.

After Jeremy got off the air he didn't seem to have a lot to say. He said something to the effect of, "I believe differently than them." He appeared to be disinterested. Either way, I preached the gospel to him again just so he could hear the truth twice. That never hurts.

I was surprised to see a big smile on his face as I held out a Million Dollar Bill tract and then gave him an episode from the TV show. He said he would watch it.

I try to not be moved with how people respond after I preach the gospel to them. Whether they are what appears to be "moved" or "indifferent", I just do my part and share with them what the Bible says. I trust that God will do the convicting.

A Cure for Depression....

I taught a homeschooling co-op today and then we hit the streets for Christmas Carol Evangelism at a retirement center. What a great way to lift your spirit. Sometimes it is hard to go in to these places because they tend to be depressing. But as D.L. Moody said, "Be in the place where people die often."

This is healthy for us Christians. At times our soul can become down cast or maybe we experience what people call the "Holiday Blues" but a good dose of visiting the widows will quickly cure that. I am reminded of the verse in Proverbs that says, "As you restore others you will be restored." I left clicking my heals.

The Gospel in 30 Seconds!

Some of you might remember me mentioning that a wonderful couple (Manuel and Mariya) from Cannes, France (close to Monaco) who let myself and The Way of the Master film crew stay at their hotel (Hotel Alexandre III for no cost while we traveled to 13 Countries in 13 days. They are amazing people and they really love the Lord. It is a small world, because I got an email from them, the other day, that they were in the Dallas area, visiting family. After a short correspondence my husband and I met with them at a local mall. I was so happy to see them. I embraced them both and thanked them for all they did for our team when we were in France. We all had huge smiles. What a wonderful reunion!

We talked about witnessing and Manuel explained, "Ever since the team left, that day, I have not been the same!" "Yes!" Mariya added. "He preaches the Gospel now everywhere he goes." We had a great time of fellowship and at one point I shared with them that you can practically share the Gospel with people in about 30 seconds. I thought you, too, might like to read our latest correspondence.

Manuel and Mariya write:

"Hey Trish, while driving back home I tried to remember how did you preach the Gospel in 30 seconds... I couldn’t remember exactly. Can you please write me the logic you use? The way you put it yesterday was awesome and I think that if I can make it in 30 seconds too, will help me to share the Gospel. Sometimes my excuse to not share is that I have to take 10 minutes at least to take them thru the commandments, etc; the WDJD scheme... Can you write me the reasoning you used?"

Here's my response to Manuel and Mariya:

I will usually ask them "Which one is bigger?" While showing them the Pink and Blue Curved Illusion Tracts. Or I will hand them a Million Dollar Bill and say something like "Did you get one of these?" Then all I need is for them to show some interest and say, "Where did you get these" and if they respond like that I will usually say something to the effect of, "These are gospel tracts...they have a gospel message on the back...I got them from a Christian you have a religious background?" I let them respond and no matter what religion they are---even if they "say" they are Christians, I will still talk to them about the Gospel because many proclaim to be "Christians" but are not.

So then I quickly go through the good person test and say, "Here's why I give these out. Think about it like this, if you have lied or stolen something in your life (like I have) or used God's name in an irreverent way, the bible says that if you have violated one of the commandments then you have violated all--and because God is a righteous judge he has to punish law breakers and that place of punishment is called Hell -- but there is good news--the reason why Christ died on the cross was because we need someone to pay our fine---you see--you broke the law and He (Jesus) paid the fine for sinners and then He rose from the dead. If you repent (turn) from your sins and trust in Christ you will be saved. Saved from what? Saved from hell."

This seems like a lot but when you practice it over and over it becomes as easy and natural as drinking water. Just to comfort you, I still am gripped with fear almost every time I go to share my faith but I just think about their souls going to Hell and that pretty much will snap me out of it. Besides, it is sort of an adrenaline rush. Once you have passed out your first tract you want to keep passing out more and once you open your mouth and talk to someone sharing with the next person comes much easier. It is always the first encounter that is difficult.

And remember, you can never loose by giving out a tract. Either the person will, 1. get saved, 2. have a seed planted, 3. drop the tract on the floor and someone else will come by and pick it up or, 4. they will get mad at you and the bible says great is your reward, in heaven, when you are persecuted for the Lord's sake. So it is a win win situation! Now if I don't have time to say all of that, I will simply give them the tract and tell them to make sure they read the Gospel message on the back and to think about if they were to die tonight where they would go. That literally takes about 5 seconds to say. Then almost every time, I leave, people have their eyes glued to the tracts and you just put a smile on their face. Hope that helps. Thank you Manuel and Mariya for all you do!

Lucas Funeral Home and The Way of the Master Radio

I was asked the other day, how I found Jimmy Lucas, who is the owner of 11 Funeral Homes in North Texas, and how I was able to get him on The Way of the Master Radio. Well, it sprung up from a sad providence that occurred in my husband's family.

A few months ago, my cousin (through marriage) lost her twins in the womb, just about 1 month before they were to be born. The whole family was in utter shock--as you could imagine. Jimmy Lucas was the funeral director who got the call from my cousin about the death of the twins. Jimmy said he was so touched by their situation that he would cover all of the funeral arrangements and costs for the family. Then when I got the news, I was amazed at his generosity that I decided to call him on behalf of the family to thank him for his kindness. At that point, I offered him the opportunity to be on the air to share his thoughts on spirituality. I could hardly believe he took up the offer.

So fast forward to last Thursday and after Jimmy got off the phone with Ray Comfort and Todd Friel, I asked Jimmy, "Jimmy, if you were to encounter someone who had only 3 minutes to live--how would you share your faith--you only have 3 minutes to do so." So he tilted his head a bit and said, "Well...I would tell them that Christ died on the cross and rose on Easter but there is only one thing I would add, if I had 3 minutes to share my faith, it's what I didn't say on the air--the word "repent"...I would tell them they had to repent".

Jimmy told me that he believed what the Bible had to say, and that Jesus was the only way to heaven. I was very grateful to hear him say these things. But I had a hard time detecting any sort of urgency in him with regards to sharing his faith with the families that come into the funeral home. It didn't seem, to me, that he was looking or digging for any little opportunity that would provide him to do so. I hope that my visit made him think about eternity and the urgency to tell others about the Gospel. As Christian's we should be looking for every open door to preach the Gospel. This should be an all consuming passion.

We talked for a short amount of time, I thanked him for being on the air, gave him a gift filled with a couple episodes of The Way of the Master television show and gospel tracts (which he enjoyed) , and a bag of special Christmas popcorn. He saw the popcorn and said as he grabbed his belly, "This will go good with the episode you gave me." I laughed and so did he. "I will watch this with the whole family." He added. "Great!" I replied. As I walked out of the funeral home I looked back at him and pointed as I said kindly with a smile, "Jimmy don't forget to preach the Gospel." He listened intently.

I had a wonderful time at the Funeral Home--though I hope to not have to go back there anytime soon :-)

I rolled down my window a bit and said...

For the second segment of The Way of the Master Radio, last Thursday, we were approached by the mall security that we shouldn't be taking photos. I was glad that at least we were able to finish the first segment with no problems. We apologized, gave the security man a tract, and quickly got in our car to leave for a new location. But before we pulled away I saw a young guy getting into his burgundy truck which just so happened to be parked next to us. I was sitting in the back of the SUV. My in-laws were in the front and my cousin-in-law was sitting next to me. The young man's driver side window was right next to mine.

I rolled down my window a bit and said, "Did you get one of these?" I handed him a Million Dollar Bill tract and he smiled. "Are you going any where-I mean do you have a quick second?" I quickly inquired. "Sure. I'm not going anywhere. I was just doing my Christmas shopping so I have time." He said, to my surprise, as he leaned against his truck. I rolled down my window all the way and said, "What's your name?" I asked. "Ryan." He answered. "Well Ryan, I know this might look really weird, four people sitting in a care talking to you, but we are doing a radio segment and we were just about to leave to go to a new location but would like you to be on it. If you are willing to, you would share your thoughts about spiritual things all over a cell phone." I said as I held up my cell phone for him to see it. "Sure. I'll do it." He said. "Perfect." I smiled. "I can talk about this topic for hours." He added.

Just excellent…I thought…this will be wonderful we don't even need to move. We will stay in the car and take pictures from inside. So I handed him the phone and he sat in his truck while he talked to Ray Comfort.

After he got out of his truck he said, "That's their view and I have my view." So we talked and the more I explained, he seemed to understand where we were coming from and what the Bible warned us of. He really opened up and began to ask question like "How can we trust that the Bible is reliable." And I answered his questions. But shared how we will still have to face a holy God on Judgment Day even if all of our questions are not answered.
I am so honored to be able to follow up with people after they get off the air. It is so needed. So I showed off the Curved Illusion tract. He cracked up laughing. It's such a blessing to be able to make people smile in the midst of such deep things. Right as we were about to leave he added, "I still have a lot of questions." "Great!" I said. My family and I invited him out to a local bible study and encouraged him to bring a note book filled with all his questions. I told him that my husband would be glad to answer them in much greater detail. I pray he will come. But even if he doesn't my prayer is for him to repent of his sins and get right with God. He was a very nice young man.

An Encouraging Email

This came into the Living Waters Ministry, the other day, and it was such a blessing for me to read.

"A quick funny story, about Trish. This was months ago... she was witnessing to two unmarried young people on the radio, and as she was talking to them, I said to myself (out loud in the car) "She's going to ask them if they're fornicating. She's going to ask them. I just know it!"And no sooner did I say that she said something like, "Now I have to ask you, are you two sleeping together? Because if you are, God sees that as a sin and a violation of the 7th commandment" or something like that. I burst out laughing so hard, not because it is funny (because it's not) but because I KNEW you'd have the chutzpah to ask them that! I think I emailed Todd Friel that day and told him to give you a raise! God bless, sister! In Christ, Mark"

Thank you Mark for your encouraging words! It really means a lot.

Accountability through the Bible

I am currently going through the Old Testament with my good friend Liz, who is my accountability partner, was my maid of honor, and is my dear friend of more than ten years now. We are halfway through the book of 1 Chronicles. We try to go through a book of the Bible about every two weeks. Of course it depends how large the book is. For example since we are in the book of 1 Chronicles we will read 15 chapters the first week and then 14 chapters the second week.

Liz lives in Southern California and I live in Texas so I don't get to see her as much as I would like. But when Sunday rolls around we call each other late at night to do "accountability". She will ask me how I did with my reading and vice versa. We also talk about what God taught us the past week. I always look forward to Sunday nights. I am so thankful that I have a friend as faithful as Liz who seeks hard after God and sharpens me on a weekly basis. Her friendship reminds me of Proverbs 27:17 which says, "As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend."

What helps me to plow through the Old Testament is keeping a list either written or on a Word Document of the attributes or characteristics of God in each chapter. This causes me to know God in a deeper way, see how He worked with men of old, and worship him for his Sovereign control over the affairs of mankind. Here are just a few examples of what I discovered when I was in 1 Kings :
  • Chapter 1: God is Faithful, Powerful, Blessed above all other gods, Worthy of praise, Sovereign

  • Chapter 2: God is Sovereign

  • Chapter 3: God is Great, Steadfast and Sovereign

Ultimately we are to be accountable to the Lord first and foremost--for everything in our lives. But it is so important to have someone that will stretch us, encourage us, and challenge us in our walk with Christ. Thank you Liz for being such a wonderful friend for so many years.

"Josh has done many things wrong."

I asked Josh and his wife Kristen, yesterday, as they were walking into Best Buy if they would be on the radio program. They paused, smiled and said "Sure." I had only a couple seconds before air time. In fact, I had my cell phone to my ear as I was asking them-I could actually hear Todd and Ray talking live on the other end.

While Josh was on the air, his wife and I listened in through the car window on a local land line. I think she was shocked that all this was happening. It's not every day that some crazy lady walks up, out of the blue, and puts you on a radio show.

Kristen listened with a big smile and boldly said, "Josh has done many things wrong." She laughed. Then as Ray was bringing Josh though the law she got more and more serious as the seconds passed. I continued to listen in with her.

When Josh got off the air I asked, "So how did it go Josh?" "Well, I sure wasn't expecting that." He said. "Did it make sense Josh-I mean do you understand that you broke God's law and that you need someone to pay the fine?" He nodded.

Josh told me, "I have really cleaned up my life and hate living the way I use to." His wife nodded. They both were honest and Josh explained how he was trying to clean up his life, which I commended him for, yet reminded him that he still needs someone to pay his fine. I think they both got the message after we talked for a while.

I gave them a bunch of tracts which they seemed to really enjoy as well as two new bibles. I challenged them to read a chapter together, out loud, before they go to bed at night. They nodded and said they would.

When the Unthinkable Happens...

There are those moments in time when something so evil and so unthinkable plunges you face to face with reality. The last several years the world has had a good look at the unthinkable-- like the mass killings and massacre of 32 students on the campus of Virginia Tech University in Blacksburg, Virginia and now the killings in Omaha, Nebraska. Where a young man kills eight people and committed suicide in a shooting rampage.

At times like this we wonder how to make sense of something so senseless and repulsive. Our souls are gripped and afflicted with helplessness and utter frustration. There is nothing we can do to turn back the hands of time. All future preventative measures will never undo the events of the past. With such devestation and calamity there is awakened, inside of everyone of us, a cry of the soul which seeks to find purpose, peace and hope again.

If there is ever a time to ask the big questions of life--it is now. This however, is not easily done anymore in our society. We live in an age where ecumenicalism rules the day and tolerance is driven by religious relativism. As I watch the news, I am impressed to wonder how anyone could be comforted by the idea that religious pluralism is the remedy that the nation had prepared for its people.

So where does one find hope in the midst of such darkness? What Buddhism would suggest is that these shootings were simply a “real illusion” and that suffering is nothing more than negative misdirected energy and that no real answer for such a tragedy exists because logic itself does not ultimately exist only “oneness” does. But try telling that to the parents of those killed. Try telling these parents that any part of the death of their loved one is just not true or was just an "illusion". That is nonesense! We would quickly become aware to the reality that ecumenical unity solves nothing! Either someone is right or no one is right. But all religions can not be right at the same time. What people need in a time like this is real answers to a real situation brought about by real evil.

Christianty offers the only real and lasting comfort in which you have a true, sure, unshakable foundation in the midst of a world which produces these unthinkable events. Christ is the only one in whom there is everlasting life and where the answers to life are solved. The Soveriegn God of the Universe does all things so that He might recieve utter glory. This is the hope that the believer has. A hope that is not moved by cirrcumstances and events in life. We must cling to the Savior because we all have violated the Law of God and calamity one day will befall all of us. Death will kock on our door because 10 out of 10 die. This is a statistic that we can't escape. This could be the day that you die --every 24 hours 140,000 people die.

We die because we have sinned against God. Have you sinned? Have you ever lied (even once--fibs, white lies, etc.)? Have you ever stolen (the value is irrelevant)? Jesus said, "Whoever looks upon a woman to lust after her, has committed adultery already with her in his heart." Have you ever looked with lust? Or used God's name with discust. This is very serious. If God judges you by the 10 Commandments (which we just looked at) will you be innocent or guilty on the Day of Judgment? You know that you will be guilty, and therefore end up in Hell...because you have missed the mark and so have I. In fact everyone has. But wait! Listen...the Bible has the answer for this delimma that we all face--God sent His Son to die on a cross--then He rose from the dead and defeated death. He died for sinners like you and me. He died that we might live. He died for sinners. Taking their punishment upon himself. So what must you do? You must repent from your sins (turn from them) and put on the Christ (trust in him with your whole being). Cry out to God today. You will never regret it.

I just got a phone call that changed my day...

I just got a phone call that a long time family friend of my family named Karen Baugher was in a horrible car accident on the way home last night from a women's Christmas dinner--and that she is in ICU and not expecting to make it. Her husband Terri just called my step dad and was crying and completely broken up saying that "they are expecting her not to make it". News like this will stop you dead in your tracts. It did for me. All the memories of her flooded my mind as I remembered her life. Thankfully she is a believer and loves the Lord. But it just reminds me of the brevity of life and how we take people for granted--when the truth of the matter is every time we depart from our family and friends we should say our goodbyes as if it they were our last. To do otherwise is prideful--thinking that we have forever to live--and we presume that we will be here tomorrow. Please pray for Karen and all those who are involved. I am broken hearted over this but I know that God is Soveriegn and will use this for his Glory.

Mascara Mistake

Sharing my faith often helps me to take my eyes off myself. A passion for the lost will do that to you. One day I was in a rush to leave the house to run errands. I quickly put on some makeup, got dressed, grabbed my car keys and off I was. I enjoy running errands not for errands sake but because it gives me a great opportunity to pass out tracts every where I go. I passed out several dozen tracts and I even had a good one to one talk with someone at the store. I got home and after several hours, looked in the mirror, and to my horror I forgot to put mascara on the other eye...imagine that...a one-eyed mascara monster preaching the Gospel all over town. I'm glad God doesn't look at our outer appearance.
