Marion Francis Holt’s tract distribution


From January 1st to April 1st, 1942, I have visited 590 homes and have contacted 1,300 persons each month.  Tracts distributed:
1,200 In the Beginning.
1,200 Moses and the One like unto him.
1,200 The promise Land Joshua’s and Ours.
100 Facts concerning the Church of Christ.
150 Copies of the Enquirer
50 Copies the Unsaved Christian.
50 Copies More than Life.
75 Copies Church Music.
100 What a Sinner must do to be saved.
4,125–Total passed out.

Each of the five churches around which I have worked says the attendance was greatly increased.  In the Buena Vista Community we had five members.  While doing this work I found six others not attending anywhere.  One lady of this community, a teacher in the Methodist Sunday school for fourteen years and whose activity and leadership was responsible for that church’s existence there, obeyed the gospel on the strength of these tracts.  Then her husband obeyed making thirteen members there with which we will begin work in a regular way.

The Church of Christ at 26th Avenue and Jefferson Street, with which I have worked for the past ten years, [110] is now distributing 1,000 tracts per month.  This personal tract each month we believe was in a measure responsible for five baptisms, two restorations, and an increase in attendance such as we never had before.

Those who have fellowshiped this work, we thank you, Green Street Church of Christ furnished 600 tracts, Reid Avenue Church of Christ furnished 1,200; Vermont Avenue Church of Christ, Los Angeles, California, through Brother Ijams and Brother Pullias, 1,500 tracts; Mrs. Dr. Fittz, Gallatin, Tennessee, contributed $3.00.

M. F. HOLT, Minister,
Jefferson Street Church of Christ.
1416 Twenty Second Ave., No., Nashville, Tenn.
