Be Still and Know That I Am God

It was deathly silent—not a breeze, no vehicles passing, the birds spoke nothing. The short walk from the lodge to the trailer in the black night held utter silence. A thick cloud cover hovered in the air above and if you did not look toward the civilized buildings you would think that you were the...

Conquering the Fear of Witnessing

When I first heard about the Challenge II, I was excited because I loved the first one! But when I learned we were supposed to witness I considered backing out, for that was very much out of my comfort zone! Talking to anyone I didn't know, even a Christian, was a terrifying prospect.

The Battle Within

As the week of the challenge drew near, I began to pray every day and ask God for a love for the people around me, and a love so great for Him that it would overpower my fear of man.

I became convicted that, if God’s kingdom is truly my priority, sharing Jesus should be the first thought I think when I meet someone, so I am not caught off guard. The...

Stepping Out in Faith

When I first heard about The Challenge II, I knew that I had to do it! The motivation and accountability to get out of my comfort zone was just what I needed! After memorizing the Scripture verses, receiving the tracts in the mail, watching the DVD by Ray Comfort on The Secret of Boldness, and reading...

A Meaningful Conversation

While I was out shopping during the week of The Challenge II, I saw a man sitting on a bench by himself. I went over and sat beside him and said “hi”. He turned out to be a really nice person. I started talking to him about various things and then asked him if he had ever received one of these tracts...
