We really believe in the use of tracts to get people’s attention. Since the Thai people mostly have never heard of Jesus and believe in a plurality of gods, a single tract could never lead a Thai person to the Lord. But, as we have found by experience, it does get their attention. We have watched people receive a tract and immediately start to read it. We have even noticed people still reading our tracts hours after we gave it to them.
On an average week, we will hand out around 400 tracts. During a festival, we often average around 5,000 tracts given to individual people. God says “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11 We rest upon this promise with every tract that we hand out.
