Sharing the Gospel in Africa
“Indeed this will be a year to show many people the love of Jesus, and the Gospel Boxes ministry will be a great service in this agenda. My theme for this year is “arise and shine”, and together with other ministers we are embracing aggressive witnessing and evangelism. I have seen amazing joy and excitement from using the Gospel Boxes, and both adults and children are interested in these Gospel Boxes. I am a friend to hundred of churches and pastors here in Africa who are interested in the Gospel Boxes, and therefore keep sending me as many Gospel Boxes as you can.” Moses Maguro
Helping Others Share the Gospel
The Reverend Reagan Cocke led a St. John the Divine Family Retreat based on the book, Sticky Faith: Everyday Ideas to Build Lasting Faith in Your Kids by Dr. Kara E. Powell & Dr. Chap Clark. After exploring different ways to develop faith in the family, Rev. Cocke used the Gospel Boxes for his sermon message on Sunday. After giving each family a Gospel Box set of their own, he encouraged each of the 30 families to use their own box set to teach their children the true Gospel message & to get comfortable sharing their faith with others.
FROM A MOM
“Oh my! My daughter (15) has been struggling with her faith for a long time. I shared the boxes with her and asked her when I was done, “What do you think? Is this a good way to present the gospel?” She said, “Yeah, that’s cool.” “Do you believe any of this stuff?” “Yes, I do believe. BUT….I have a really hard time with the concept of what happens to us after death. Like, I get that kids have had NDE (Near Death Experiences) and seen the light of God, I just don’t know for sure what happens to us. It’s a tough concept for me to grasp, Mommy.”
I was praising Jesus the whole way I was taking her to her friend’s house. I thought she didn’t even believe, let alone that she was even having these thoughts. Thank you for this beautiful way to share the gospel!! What a sweet gift from the Lord!” Sylvia

WITNESSING TO UNSAVED FRIENDS
The Night of the Boxes!
“Recently I had the opportunity to share the good news of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection in less than thirty minutes! Asian friends had come to say goodbye the night they were returning home to their own country. They were not allowed to stay in the United States any longer, so I asked them if I could pray for them before they left. Hesitating, they responded by nodding politely. I invited them to sit down and I began by explaining to them why I would be praying in the name of Jesus. Attempting to tell them why this was important, my daughter spoke up and said, “Why don’t you use the boxes?” “What a great idea!” I thought, so I quickly said a silent prayer and began to demonstrate using the boxes. My daughter plus a Christian house guest who was visiting were also praying, l knew. After finishing, we hugged them goodbye, all the while praying that God would water and cultivate the seed that was planted. The three of us are still praising God for the “night of the boxes.” Ginny, Houston
