    I was upset about not witnessing well called youth pastor prayed and talked to him. And today I got to witness to some one using a booklet. And also we place tracks in the bath room and every one is talking about them which is awesome to so praise God.

    Well done John, keep up the good work. The church needs more young men like you.

    God Bless

    I personally am not a fan of booklets... I've done the same at school as you did... all they do is bring out the Jesus bashers...

    I personally like to make friendships and talk about Him that way...


    A friend of mine, in his senior year, got the crud beat out of him because of a book report he did. He did a report on one of CS Lewis' books. From what I understand it was basically a sermon... which is good as he's been called to preach. They said that if "God really loved him he'd save him from a beating", my friend is no small dude and he came away with a few bruises... but he just defended himself, didn't get into it...

    anyway... I don't feel called to share with multitudes. I'm more of a relationship witness...

    I think the greatest witness is the Christian who leads by example:

    My first few roommates in college had drinking problems, were afraid of my music, were never there...but my last roommate was different. She was always home early. She bought me presents with scripture, and she gave them to me humbly (in case I didn't like them). "Footprints" carried me through my last year of school.

    She always treated me like I was a good person, she never judged me for my clothes or music, and she shared her life with me. When she was around, I felt like I could be GOOD.

    She never handed me a booklet, but her contentment intrigued me. Her life seemed to work in spite of some major obstacles, she had found a wonderful Christian boy who treated me with the same care and respect with which he'd treated her.

    I wish that I had known her longer, I might have made some better choices for myself.

    Don't underestimate yourselves as Christian examples. You might not ever know the difference you make in someone else's life.

    PS: She was the first Baptist I ever got to know. (I had been raised Episcopalian).
