Pastor Kruse and I
had been witnessing in the park near the river when we came across a
middle aged gentleman I will call Jake. It was my turn to share the
Greg Hofler (G):
Hi! My name is Greg and this is my friend Dale and we are out today
taking a survey on this booklet called What Is Eternal Life?
and I wondered if I could take ten minutes of your time and get your
reaction to it?
You gave me one of these last year.
What was your reaction to it?
I thought that it presented the Gospel very clearly. I am a
What is your name?
Jake, how did you first receive Christ?
About ten years ago I prayed and received Jesus Christ as Savior and
Lord at a Billy Graham crusade.
Amen! Jake, I have this other booklet written mainly for Christians
titled May I take a few minutes of your time and get your reaction
I shared the
Evangelism Tract with him. The entire time I was sharing it with
him he continued to fish: casting out his line, reeling it in,
baiting the hook and moving around a lot. It appeared on the surface
that he really was not interested, but when I got the point of
commitment and asked him if he would like to pray and commit his
free time to Jesus to share the love of Jesus with others, he said
in response to my surprise:
Yes, I would!
I then led him
through the prayer of commitment.
Jake, I am glad you have made this commitment to share Jesus with
others. Pastor Kruse has written many books that are listed on the
last page which can give you the training you need to become an
effective witness for Jesus Christ. The Textbook titled
The Time Is Now!
is the Basic Evangelism Training Program I went through that taught
me how to effectively communicate my faith with others. I highly
recommend it! My address is here also. If you would like to go
through this program with a personal trainer like myself, please
write us at this address and express your interest and we will get
in contact with you immediately. The first book listed here titled
explains the importance of training and how this Basic Program of
Evangelism can give you the training and equipping to be an
effective witness of the Gospel for Jesus Christ. I encourage you to
purchase this book and read it!
Okay! I'll do that!
