Kathy from New York writes the following to Chick Publications.
“I just had to let you know that the Lord used your Adopted tract today to encourage a young woman to change her mind about ending the life of her baby. I live on Long Island, New York and was standing outside the Planned Parenthood in Smithtown this morning. A group of us were on the sidewalk holding signs exhorting those who were driving in to choose life for their babies.
Most people have their windows rolled up and pull in quickly so we don’t have an opportunity to give a tract or information from a pregnancy center that can help them. (“And we can’t enter the property and follow them into the lot.”) But one car with a young man and woman pulled in more slowly and had the windows down. I was able to hand the woman the pregnancy center’s flyer plus your tract.
“I pleaded with her to save her baby and told her that if she couldn’t afford to keep it that there were loving couples ready to adopt. Also, how much God loved both her and her baby and wanted to adopt them both into His family. I said, “Please, before you go inside, won’t you read this tract after you park, and pray to God, asking Him what He would have you do?” She said she would and they continued down the driveway.
About 20 minutes later they came back. She told us she had decided to keep her baby. Praise God!! I truly believe He used the Adopted tract to touch her heart. I encouraged them both to receive Jesus as Lord and Savior and told her that God was so pleased with her today for this joyous decision.
Thank you for the wonderful work that you at Chick are doing for God’s kingdom, and for the lives of these little ones.”
In Christ’s love,

Give out a gospel tract today; you’ll never know what will happen. My preacher friend from Pacolet, SC, Andrew Carrigan was saved through a gospel tract. One Wednesday in a small NC town, Andrew went to the local feed and seed company for some fertilizer and grass seed. He passed a man dressed in a blue suit on the sidewalk who politely handed him a gospel tract. He stuck it in his pocket and walked on it the store where he made his purchase. He then loaded up the bags in the back of his car and went home to finish the job. He sowed the seed and fertilizer and plowed it in. Later, he was sitting on this front porch, as we say, “watching the grass grow.” He began thinking about that piece of paper the man gave him and began looking for it. It wasn’t in his pockets; it wasn’t in the back of his car. Finally looking out across the freshly plowed yard, he saw a tiny white corner sticking up out of the dirt. He walked to where it was and carefully pulled it up and it wasn’t torn at all. He read the tract that day and prayed a simple prayer for the Lord to save him. A joy came into his heart that he could not explain. He wanted to tell his wife, but she was at work. He would be going to work before she came home. He went on to work with his new found faith rejoicing. His wife had been invited to go to church on Wednesday night and went. Andrew got off work and couldn’t wait to get home and tell his wife what had happened. As he went up the steps and across the porch, the front door opened. His wife was waiting for him. He told her what had happened that afternoon, and then she told him that she had accepted Christ at church that same afternoon. These two fine young people went on serving the Lord. Finally, they settled in Pacolet at Morning Star Baptist Church where they have been serving the Lord faithfully for decades. Andrew recently had a tumor that was cancerous on his brain. The surgery was successful and he continues on. Next, the church has built a beautiful new sanctuary. Each year they host a Mission’s Conference and encourage new recruits to keep on keeping on. All of this happened because one man politely stood on the street in front of the hardware store passing out gospel tracts, and one lady invited another lady to church. Don’t you just love this gospel of Jesus Christ?
