    At any rate, I have to say things are "worse" where I worked in Acres Homes. On a "scary" scale for me this was maybe a 3. Acres Homes is a good 7.

    Acres Homes I see overt dealing and prostitution, gangbangers in obvious colors up to no good. But I think I'm done there for now (it's been 2.5 years). I have distributed over 1000 Bibles there and when I hear "I already have a Bible" on my last two handouts, a good sign to move for a bit.

    Ron and I lived near a XXX bookstore in our first apartment. We had drugs, gangs, poverty, and prostitution. I also had creeps hassling me at the bus stop.

    Our second apartment we lived near a head shop (they sell drug using supplies). We had dirty needles around the bus stop, drug dealing, crack house, dope fiends, child molesters, and the friendly neighborhood prostitute who assured me she'd never do business with my husband.

    We lived there 7 years. God, of course, used all that as preparation for this. Amazing to think He knew we'd be doing this even then.

    Oh, and my psychiatrist is a Jew. He keeps an eye on my illness (no head shrinking, just medical) and writes me prescriptions. Today Ron mentioned the handouts and Doc was very interested in getting a Bible. I was thrilled. I gave one each to him and his intern.

    Later on the intern told me "You know he's a Jew." and I quoted John 4:22 "Salvation comes from the Jews". She was really impressed.
    Wow, wow, and wow! There is alot you've dealt with, but I know for His glory. I'm sorry that I didn't read enough to realize that you have a blog and facebook. I will check out your blog for sure. Thanks for the updates, because I love to read them, and they encourage and inspire me, thanks!

    Something awful yesterday. A driver asked me for a Bible and I didn't have any!

    I can't say how, but he got his Bible.

    Today I brought 5 with me. I handed them all out by 5 PM.

    Great. Then a driver wanted 3 more when we got home!

    I think I need to bring 10 a day now.

    Looks like I'm back to everyday Bibles in addition to the Handouts.

    I've done about 20 this week, including the pizza deliveryman just now.

    Boy, God just send them and sends them.

    Amazing he can use me at all.

    Busy weekend!

    I found an insane sale at Lifeway. http://www.lifeway.com/Bibles/c/N-1z...Sales-20131217

    I got a lot of Bibles. I love finding a good deal and God led me right to it. I even left you a couple.

    That was awesome.

    Today, when I got to church, Chuck told me he would be happy to help me print up my Where to Look in the New Testament tracts. I haven't been able to find someone able to do it. He runs a print shop, and is confident.

    But wait, Chuck said, we have something for you, and they brought out 2 cases of Lifeway's Outreach Bibles! I love these things, they have helps: where to look, common questions, etc, in addition to a nice-looking whole Bible.

    I gave one away on the way home. I'm still handing out Bibles everyday.

    This week, I would like to:

    Get a busy commuting hot spot very near my home, good median and traffic.

    Go back to hookertown, I mean Bissonnet, and do another handout.

    Now I have whole Bibles, and more to come!

    Exciting times!

    My sister found this guy while on vacation.

    I'm not alone!

    Firemen!

    Yeah, it was an interesting Handout.

    I went out with 25 Bibles, distributed 19, in 50 minutes. Considering I was working in a solid middle class residential/industrial area - I'm happy. Hey, one Bible makes me happy. Standing there with the sign makes me happy, because someone's going to think about God when they see it.

    Let me tell you, though. The haters were hating. You'd think I'd have this problem in the ghettoes. I don't. They just ignore me or want a Bible. These guys, boy were they scowly, shaking their heads, frowning at me, etc.

    To quote Taylor Swift, I just shook it off. I feel sorry for them. It was a much tougher crowd, but that made it more fun when I did distribute a Bible. One lady took 3, and wants to attend my church now. I was glad I put the church invite cards into the Bibles.

    One lady was dressed for a food service job, her hair in a bun, under a hairnet. She was surprised, but happy, to get a Bible.

    I gave out a couple of Spanish, that always makes me happy.

    I gave one Bible to a young man covered in colorful tattoos. I really wanted to get the garbage truck guys, but they couldn't get over. Instead, I had a FIRE TRUCK. The window was open. I dove into my bag, grabbing the biggest stack I could hold. I handed it up to the driver, who was grinning. "I'll hand them out to the guys" he said. YES.

    I did get some people, I believe to be Christians, nodding and waving back as I cavorted on the corner. One lady stopped and told me she really liked what I was doing. I told her God gets all the credit on that, I get panic attacks around traffic, but NEVER on a Handout.

    I'm just the tool, nothing more. I am only notable because I go.

    Please pray for the recipients!

    I walked over to the intersection, from my house, with a shoulder bag full of New Testaments, the ones I got on clearance for a quarter each. Not many left, now.

    Apparently, I wasn't done yet.

    I took what was left of my Bibles to the chicken place.

    Except we couldn't get a ride to the chicken place, we got there half an hour late.

    JUST in time to see the police talking to the mugging victim. She had been robbed INSIDE the chicken place. The employees are behind a plexiglass wall. If that road had a median.... perfect for a handout.

    Everyone was totally freaked out. The employees got Spanish Bibles, and I gave some Scripture booklets to the victim and her friends.

    Total 27 Bibles today, counting drivers, not counting the Scripture booklets.

    Sure glad our ride was late, or it would have been us, getting robbed.

    Got 172 Bibles today, and some Bible Promise books.

    I felt Holy Spirit prompting me to give one to our friend/driver. He is unreached "I am fine with God", believes those TV shows that say the Bible is corrupted, etc. Maybe the promise book will work on him in a way the Bible I gave him didn't.

    Needless to say, my shelving system is about to burst. Time for some Handouts!

    Please ask God to make it very clear - it's been all rain this week so no Handouts (I don't care, but the recipients do).

    You and your husband have such an amazing story. Your daily life would make an interesting reality TV show.

    You two are very blessed.
    16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.

    1 Thessalonians 4
