A Saskatoon member relates this incident of how God meets us in our need, "For some time in my pursuit of a closer relationship with Christ, I have been discouraged by temptation and defeat.... I came to the point where I wondered whether or not there was any use trying. Then before beginning my evening of study I opened one of your letters. The first tract that I removed was, 'How Prayer is Answered.' Since I enjoy poetry I read it and found the expression of my own desires and despairs with God's answer given.”
A tract is a portion of the Word of God applied to the human heart. God uses the printed page.
Steinbach, Man. - Bertha Wiebe - received letter from a girl on list, saying that the tracts and books sent, had answered many of her questions. She received Christ at Camp.
'Eric' Onamah - Sent by Robert Odumu - "Since I was a school boy I have not heard about God nor even know who is God, but I was just only attending church when I was young. When I left school I came from my town and settled in a foreign town, Warri. For years I had neither attended church nor spoken with a religious man, until not long ago a man gave me a tract and told me that I should turn to Christ. He quoted many verses from the Bible. I was so much pleased about the word of God so I told him to write for tracts as I am now a new born babe by believing that Jesus died for me; because of my sin He was killed and with His blood I was saved."
Are you encouraged to give someone a tract now?
