WHAT YOUR TRACTS CAN DO!
An awesome testimony
Ron, a young man, in his early 20s, had just been arrested the third time for burglary. He was addicted to heroin, infected with hepatitis C, was an alcoholic, along with many other bad habits. Even though he had a good job, his drug addiction was so severe that he had to burglarize homes to keep his habit fed. Once he had been processed into the St. Louis City lock-up, he was put by himself, into a jail cell.
Sitting on the back of the commode in that cell, was a small, red booklet that simply spelled out the "Roman's Road to Salvation." This young man, who knew that his life was just about over, turned the edge of the bunk bed into an altar and asked God that, if He was real, to show him. At that instant, the young man was delivered from his heroin addiction and alcoholism, and healed of hepatitis C. Amazingly, he was not convicted of the burglary charges, though he had been caught red-handed.
From that point on, this extremely grateful young Christian man laid his life into the hands of the Lord, and told the Lord that, if God wanted to use him, he was willing. And use him, God did! Very shortly after his conversion, his brother, who witnessed the change in him, also committed his life to the Lord. The two of them rented a small building in House Springs, Missouri, and opened a Christian "coffee house." It quickly filled with teenagers and young adults whose lives were dramatically changed. That coffee house was bursting at the seams, so they had to get a much larger space. That space opened, and it, too, was bursting at the seams. They then went on and opened another outreach in Festus, Missouri. From those two outreaches, they opened a Christian Outreach Center in Hillsboro, which is still a Christian school today.
Then Ron, and by now, his wife, went to the mission field in Mexico and in Costal Rica. They opened many churches and orphanages, which they are still involved in. He has also been used to begin churches in Africa, even in some of the most remote areas, where demonism is rampant. He was in charge of the School of Christ in Africa for many years. He then returned to the United States to assist his son, who is now a minister himself, with his church. He has assisted in the start-up and growth of many churches in rural Missouri. Many of the people who were reached through the coffee houses have gone on to become ministers and missionaries themselves.
There is no way of knowing, until he gets to heaven, just how many thousands, if not millions, of people have been saved, all because someone left a simple gospel tract on the back of a toilet in a jail cell.
