I am Pastor Brian Kelly. God has given me and my church an amazing place to witness at one of the main crossroads of the world: the New York 42nd street, Times Square subway station by the number 7 train. The thousands of people per hour who use that station are greeted by a banner that asks: "WHERE WILL YOU SPEND ETERNITY?" They also cannot miss the 100 scripture signs along the wall and 4 tables of tracts in dozens of languages. They are able to browse until they find something that catches their interest.
Members of our church, King James Bible Baptist Church, have staffed the outreach 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, since January 2007. We will go through 100,000 tracts in a couple of months. Over one million have been given out since the beginning, including 200,000 Chick tracts. Many KJV Bibles and New Testaments have also been distributed.
Many people will pause in their haste to catch the trains to scan the display. We have file cards in front of the rack pockets stating the language in that pocket. Non-English speakers are delighted to find something in their native tongue and will read it avidly. Over 1000 tracts go out every day in languages other than English. For some, this is the first time they have heard the gospel. As an example there was this one Finnish woman who broke into tears after reading the tract, "Somebody Loves Me". Early in the morning, thousands of Hispanic people come through, going to work. One whole rack is devoted to Spanish language tracts and it gets a lot of attention that time of day.
Many come back to ask questions about the Bible or tell us that they prayed the prayer in the tract. Every day someone is prayed with to accept Christ. Some days several will make a commitment to the Lord. Each of our tracts have follow-up information on the back page with our phone number. Some call with questions and often are led to pray for salvation.
