I encountered an interesting and exciting article when I received my copy of the Southern Baptist Texan this week. I thought I'd share it with you and see if you think you could use the information.
A Houston businessman, David Howell wrote and published a tract/booklet, explaining "how to be a child of God". Howell's booklet is being handed out to prisoners by the thousands in Texas. Howell distributed 15,000 throughout Texas and had to print another 10,000. Chaplains love it, according to the story by David Roach. Howell is a member of Second Baptist Church in Houston and has a wonderful story of transformation in Christ.
I hope you can get a copy of the SB Texan and read the whole story about him. However, you can visit Howell's website and see the online booklet, How To Be A Child of God, the testimonials and a press release if you want. I copied the embed of his video so you can see it below. According to David Roach, of SBTexan, one pastor added Howell's site to his church website. I highly recommend you visiting the site to see if this may be something you think you could use to reach the lost with a simple presentation of the Gospel message. You may want to share it on your facebook page, too.
According to Dr. David Allen, Dean, School of Theology and Professor of Preaching at the SWBTS in Ft. Worth, Texas:
"David Howell is to be commended for producing a tract that goes beyond what one usually expects! The gospel is clearly presented, illustrated, and with an eye toward discipleship as well. I predict lots of people will take up and read, and may they come to Christ as Savior and Lord!”.
So what do you think? I'd love to know.[SORRY...I just noticed there was a note that none of David's site could be copied in any way. So I removed the video, but you can go to his site to see it. Apologies to David]
