Many churches, particularly in the southern part of the United States, have long had a burden for the ready-made mission field that comes across our southern border.

Now, with such a massive flood of people entering, the burden of how to reach them with the gospel is almost overwhelming. In that southern area and even throughout the entire country, a ripe soulwinning opportunity is here.

Just in the last four years, an estimated 9.6 million people have entered. They are diverse both in religion and in language. Those from Latin America speak mostly Spanish and generally have a Roman Catholic background.

But we are also seeing individuals from China, India, and the Muslim countries as well as Haiti and Africa.

Cities across the country are beginning to feel the strain on their welfare systems. Many compassionate Christians have stepped up to provide basic necessities, but let's not neglect their spiritual needs as well, which can be highly complex.

Many have spiritual worldviews that make evangelism difficult because they were betrayed or even abused by their spiritual leaders. Now, they don't trust them!

Missionaries in the foreign fields have discovered that reaching multitudes in complex societies with the gospel can be daunting. But several generations of believers have also learned that printed literature is a powerful tool. Used properly it can be very effective in sorting out those who are approachable with the gospel message.

Chick tracts are highly versatile because of their cartoon format that gets the reader’s attention and can then speak to the spiritual needs of the reader —and in the person's native tongue.

Over the years, missionaries have helped us translate Chick tracts into more than 140 languages. All of the major languages are covered as well as many lesser-known languages from Africa and other countries.

In addition, they come in categories specifically related to Islam, Roman Catholicism, Hinduism, and other “isms.”

24-Page Engaging Story

The 24-page tract with its engaging story — in classic cartoon style — helps pull the reader through a simple gospel message, ending with an invitation to accept Christ.

God has blessed Chick Publications with high-speed, high-volume printing equipment capable of producing millions of tracts a month. In large quantities the costs can be driven down to make Chick tracts very near the price of simple leaflet tracts.

Some churches are already acting on the vision to reach this river of humanity with the gospel. They are taking advantage of the volume pricing that Chick Publications can offer and recruiting teams to go into the shelters to reach these millions of precious people.

Over the years, we've received testimonies from people who told us they received a gospel tract and at first disregarded its message. But they chose not to throw it away. Later on, they rediscovered it and were ready to act upon its message.

Chick Publications wants Bible believers to know that God has given us tremendous capacity to meet the needs of Christians who are ready to put their resources to work for the Kingdom of God.
