Every week, the Billboard Evangelism phone team talks with hundreds of callers. Many of the callers are seeking spiritual guidance.
Adam* called with many questions about God and faith. For two years, a phone team member had contact with Adam, teaching and encouraging him in his faith journey. Adam now attends a conservative Anabaptist church. He testifies of a peace with God and seeks ways to deepen his Christian walk.
Thirteen-year-old Felix was another caller. He was raised in a Christian home, but he became involved in witchcraft, immorality, and alcohol. Despair took hold of Felix, and on one occasion, he attempted to commit suicide. When he called the billboard number, our phone team member prayed with Felix and urged him to repent. He also sent Felix a Bible.
“Since I received the Bible, my life has changed for the better and I have become a man of the Lord. Your kind words changed my life.” Billboard caller
Four years later, Felix contacted our team member. “We last spoke in 2015 about my witchcraft and my sins,” he shared. “Since I received the Bible, my life has changed for the better and I have become a man of the Lord. Your kind words changed my life. God bless.”
Many callers express interest in receiving Christian literature, which includes Bibles, CDs of Gospel messages or songs, faith-strengthening books, or other literature pertaining to their individual needs. Literature in the hands of seeking callers multiplies the potential for Christian influence. People may not fully remember the conversation they had with a phone team member, but receiving a package of literature makes them contemplate truth.
The process of presenting a billboard message, talking with a seeking caller, sending literature, and offering discipleship is a powerful evangelism tool. This opportunity to touch Americans with God’s truth is possible because of your support. Thank you for your vital role in this work!
