Reach Your Neighborhood with Real Life Stories Christian Testimony Books Carla and I always like to lead by example. We tried something new to reach out to people in our neighborhood. When the weather permits, Carla and I walk around our neighborhood for about 1 hour each day. It is a 3 mile walk. While on one of these walks, I heard the Lord say: “Take a Real Life Stories book to every house in the neighborhood.”
On another walk I heard, “Put a hand written note in each book”. On other walks I heard, “More details about what the hand written note was to say.” Read the details of the note below. Attached is a copy of Lighthouse 6, read it so you know what these people will be receiving. It will help you to pray with more understanding! Think about how you might feel if this book landed on your door step, especially if you were in the middle of one of Life’s Many Storms:
Hello Neighbor! We are Jim and Carla Barbarossa. You may have seen us walking around the neighborhood a time or two. We are co-authors of this book of “Hope”. You can read our stories on pages 28 and 32. You can see our pictures on the back of the book in the bottom right hand corner. After reading the book, if you would like to have extra copies to give hope to family, friends or co-workers just ask and we’ll drop them off at your house. We often pray as we walk through the neighborhood. If you need prayer for anything please contact us! Every other month we hold a Faith based meeting at our home and we invite you to join us. It is on Saturday nights, 6:30 P.M. on these dates : August 4, 2018, October 6,2018, December 1, 2018, February 2, 2019 and April 6, 2019. We hope you enjoy our book! God Bless You! Jim and Carla The picture below is what it looks like when hand written in a book
We then placed each book in a zip lock bag to protect it from the weather and deliver to every neighbor’s door
I believe this “God Idea” can work in every neighborhood!! What do you think?
How about Your neighborhood?
Our motto: Real Life Stories Books – Never Leave Home Without Them!
Within 6 weeks of the time we placed the books on the neighbors doors we noticed people waving as they would go past us in their cars as we were walking. We also noticed more people saying hello and being friendly when we would walk past their homes. Then people started stopping us and asking questions or saying you’re the people in the book aren’t you? Some said, “Hey Hello, really loved your book !” The Real Life Stories Christian Testimony Books have made us Know and given us Favor in our neighborhood! Over time through this effort we will make Jesus Know in Our Neighborhood!! How about trying this out reach in Your Neighborhood?
