The Boulevard Church in Atlanta, Ga., agreed to receive 22,000 tracts for distribution on Super Bowl Sunday in Atlanta. Daryl Anderson, newly assigned pastor, wanted the members to take advantage of the opportunity to share the Gospel during the Super Bowl.
The task was daunting with only three weeks to organize. The church’s publishing director made an appeal to the members, and 35 volunteers responded. An assembly line was set up in the church foyer for tracts to be stamped and then stuffed.
It was a beautiful picture to see seniors, young adults, youth, and children participate in their “mission for Jesus!” In two short hours, approximately 12,000 tracts were stamped and stuffed. The following week, all preparations were completed. The work was peppered with laughter and praise, which made the task seem easier, and the time it took flew quicker.
On the Sabbath before the Super Bowl, the tracts were distributed to members and visitors, and in one hour, all 22,000 tracts were picked up for distribution!
The next day the organizing committee heard one complaint: “I wish I had taken more; I ran out so fast.”
