Most people who want
to witness fear rejection. You will see very little rejection giving
gifts to people. People love gifts and to get one from anyone is sheer
uplifting and joy to them. You need to try these methods. Having
a "gift ministry" is fun and wins souls for Jesus of Nazareth.
Also, people think you
are a very rich person to be giving away what they see as real gold coins.
Nobody is going to question you as they inwardly fear people in authority.
You instantly control the situation at hand. You will find that people
will simply be dazzled seeing the gold coin in their hand. They will
not will argue or cast doubts. They simply take the gift.
Imagine if some
perfect stranger walked up to you and handed you a gold coin. It would
shock you! Things like this just do not happen. In fact, it
never happens! It is like a dream come true when it does.
If you are shy or fearful to
witness? Then try these funny ways to proclaim the Gospel. They will
give you boldness. Remember, everybody wants to have fun and they all
appreciate seeing something funny or unusual.
see a small child with parent. Just approach and say, "A seagull
(or black bird) flew by and dropped this gold coin into the parking lot and
told me to give it to him (or her)." The child sees the gold coin,
saying "Wow!" The parents laugh and everyone smiles.
You see a person with a dog. "Wow, that's a money dog. You
must have paid a lot of money for that dog." The dog owner at this
point is confused and off guard. "Can I pet the dog?" If yes,
go into the dog's fur and retrieve a gold Gospel Coin. This always is
funny and people love it. Kids then start searching the dog's fur for
gold coins. But only you can find them, so you search the fur and
deliver more coins. Even the dog is happy to get all those wonderful
back rubs! This works good where kids are near the animal.
If you can't pet the dog, then just say, "If you look into it's fur you
will find money. That is why they call this breed money dogs." Then
pretend you found a gold coin on the ground where the dog was and give it to
are driving slowly down the street. You see some kids on bicycles or
skateboards, or just loitering. Toss a few coins from your window.
the coins will cling and clang and roll around. The kids see this and
will instantly rush with pure greed and delight to get those gold coins!
You have got to try this. It is fun to do. Kids will even
violently throw their bicycles to the ground so they can race on foot to get
those gold coins. Note: do this in
low speed or zero traffic areas so kids will not run into a busy area or
street and get hit by a car. There are many empty parking lots and
school yards where kids play and these are good places. Keep in mind a
child will chase a rolling ball into a street. So, don't toss a coin
that will land on a busy street. Vacant parking lots and playground
areas are best.
see kids playing basketball behind a tall fence. Toss some coins onto
the court and leave. Suddenly, sports do not seem so important to them
right now. The power of seeing a gold coin is amazing. It makes
people stop and chase them.
is near the Christmas season. You see a child with parent looking at
pine trees. You reach into the tree they were looking at and say, "Did
you know there are gold coins in these trees?" Then you pull out the
gold coin and give it to the child. "Wow! Mom, look at that."
The kid will then go searching for more gold coins. Give a coin to the
You can be very bold walking up to
complete strangers saying, "Hi, I am from the North Pole and Santa Clause
sent me to deliver to you your Christmas gift because you were good this
year." You hand them the gold coins. This most always gets a
good smile and a laugh.
maybe you would like to wrap the coin in a small jewelry box with gift wrap
and a bow, then give small gifts away. However, it is not really
required. Just give the coin without any wrapper at all.
is near the Easter season. You see parent with child in a restaurant,
parking lot or anywhere for that matter. "I saw the Easter bunny
plant these coins right over there. Did you find golden eggs like
these?" Then hand out the gold coins to the kids.
people enjoy wearing costumes to entertain children. You could use these
costumes when giving away Gospel tracts in public places just for the fun
of it. Santa Clause, Easter Bunny, scary Halloween monster, a funny animal
or clown costume can be used. People like to be entertained with the
unusual and they will gladly accept your Gospel tract.

loudly and people begin to search for it. When the person finds the
gold coin it creates curious interest. In many cases the person who
found the coin reads aloud the Gospel message engraved on the coin.
You just turned an unbeliever into a street evangelist - ha!
are taking a lunch break dining outside. Sit where you are near a
walking path. Place a gold coin on the step or pathway where customers
or pedestrians walk by. Then watch the excitement as some lucky person
finds a brilliant gold coin. You can also place on the seat of a
nearby chair. In moments, it will be discovered and treasured.
Often, you will see the person pass it around to everyone at the table.
You just reached more people with only one coin. More people will see
and read the coin's Gospel message when they take it home.
you walk, pretend you are fixing your shoe and slip a gold coin under your
foot, then walk away. Stop and watch who finds the coin. It is
most comical to see people freeze in their tracts, bend down and retrieve
the coin. Nothing else will stop them, but the Gospel Coin will.
Today, they get the Gospel message they otherwise never would have.
at a tourist attraction sites such as zoos and amusement parks, plant coins
like an Easter egg hunt. Leave some where they can easily be found
too. As you walk you will begin to hear kids find the gold coins,
"Mommy, look, I found gold." But there is something else that is
going to happen. Kids can't hold anything in their hands. They
always drop the coin so it "clings" on the ground. As you walk you
will hear all day long "clings" in the air. Kids everywhere are
"clinging" like bells a sweet song to the Lord. You have got to hear
this song. It is lovely and funny, too.
mounting tape on the gold coin and paste it to a leaf dangling from a tree
over a walkway. You have created a real money tree. Somebody
will find it and be overjoyed.
is funny to see people stop and pick up gold coins. The best place to
plant them is on steps and curbs. People's eyes must always glance
down at these points, so the coins get found quickly. It is fun to see
their reaction. Some take it so seriously they look over their
shoulder to make sure nobody is looking at them.
Another good place to leave a gold coin is by a
jewelry store door entry. People who find it think somebody dropped
and lost it from the jewelry store. You will witness a person
stealing. They will not turn it in, but God catches them in the act.

the gold coin.
you ever visit a historic or old gold mining town people will be quick to
pick up a gold coin all the more. Many are tourist and think they have

as they walk on, eyes glued to the sidewalk.
see a mother pushing a baby carriage. Say, "Did you know that is a
money baby?" Then reach into the carriage pretending to snatch
something, then reveal a Gold coin. Then say, "That baby is going to
get you rich." Give a gold coin to the mother too.
see some kid following his parent. "Hey, excuse me. This gold coin
fell out of his (or her) hair." Then give the kid the coin, saying "You
should not let your gold coins fall out of your hair like that, you could lose
Another technique is to just lob a coin
near the child and pretend you don't know what is going on. The kid will
gladly chase it down. When parents and kids look in your direction you can
play dumb, or just say, "Did you see that? A bird dropped it from its
beak. Amazing, I have never seen that before."
see a person wearing Christian jewelry. "That's a neat necklace (pin or
ear ring). Are you a Christian?" Regardless of answer, "Here,
this is your gift." or if they say they are a Christian you can say, "The
Lord rewards those who witness for Him" then hand them the gold coin.
Normally, I do not hang around. After I give a person the coin I walk
away. Why? Because I am approaching people who are on their way
doing things. All I want to do is give them a gift, then get out of the
way to let God do the rest.
is easy to just walk up to someone you do not know with the gold coin in hand,
saying, "Did anyone give you a gift today? Well, here, you have
one now." or if they said yes, "Here, you deserve another one."
walking or shopping have you ever had a stranger look and smile at you?
Wave them over and say, "Just for being a nice person I have a gift for you."

out of the ordinary it just makes people laugh. Or, someone smiles at you
and you say, "I know why you smiled at me. You knew I had a lot of
money." Then hand them the gold coin. This really stuns them and
is fun to do.
are standing in line waiting for the cashier. Don't just be a silent
person, talk to the other person ahead or behind you. Just say, hello or
whatever you want to say. You'll talk a bit then before they or you leave
just turn around and say, "I want to give you a gift that will last a
lifetime." Then hand them the coin.
Once in a great while someone will take the coin and then say, "I can't take
this, it is too valuable." Just say, "That is why I gave it to you.
You deserve to have it for being nice to me." They usually then accept
it. You will develop your own responses as you get the hang of it.

That monkey just threw a gold coin at you." This will get a laugh as
kids really believe the monkey did it. It could be another animal, a bird,
elephant or giraffe. Use your imagination. You may think this is
silly, but kids just love things like this.
needs an excuse to go somewhere and to get badly needed exercise. Why
not fill your pocket with Gospel Coins and go to the local events in your
city? Satan is promoting events to gather people to keep them
busy and entertained. All you have to do is show up, enjoy the event
and you will be proclaiming the Gospel to the lost while having a ton of
laughs at the same time.
will find that you can't do these things with other gift items or with Gospel
tracts. These Gospel Coins are truly a unique means of witnessing unlike
anything else you have tried before. You will be able to boldly walk up to
complete strangers and give them the coin with ease and they will thank you for
it. You can do this with tracts, but they usually know you are soliciting.

courthouse just so you will feel more comfortable that you will not be robbed.
"Free money, free gold coin. Yours for the asking." People
will take the coins, especially kids. You could say, "Free gold
coin if you take and read this Gospel tract." This way you give them a
tract and coin. It is funny because people don't know how to react seeing
a man with a palm full of gold coins giving them away. Things like this
don't happen every day, right? When was the last time you saw this?
a gold coin on a ATM machine at a bank, then step back and watch the next person
find it. Often, they will look carefully that nobody is looking and pocket
the coin. Seeing this is fun and funny.
