News from Sue   August 2016

Since my last letter I have been able to give out 86 bracelets. Monday I met an older man named Ron. As we talked, I learned he was a believer and we had a nice visit. That day I also met a lady named Hilda. She was still learning English, but we communicated fairly well. When we got on the bus, I tried to offer a bracelet to another lady, but she only spoke Spanish. Then Hilda helped me to tell her that I was trying to ask if she had children and wanted bracelets for them. (Maybe I should learn a few key sentences in Spanish.) I had a Spanish tract for her, and she began to read it right away. Tuesday I thought I could do my errands and get home before the rain because the weather report said the big storm was coming in the afternoon. However, while on the way home at 9:00 a.m. the rain began coming down very hard. I decided to stay on the bus to the end of the route and back. That way I would not need to cross the flooded street to catch another bus home. While on the bus, I heard two men speaking in another language. I told them that I had helped people learning English, and then I asked what language they were speaking. They said Farsi (Persian). I didn’t have anything in Farsi, but they knew English, so I gave them the tract, “Your story; Do you know it?” which is a clear Gospel presentation. At the same time, I heard a lady speaking on her cell phone. I thought she was speaking French. I had this same tract in French and she accepted it. I also had a nice talk with a University student who was just here for the summer from Dallas. Near the end of the route, it was only the driver and I, so I talked with her. She accepted a bracelet as I got off the bus. I wasn’t planning this long round trip when I left that morning, but I had some good opportunities.

Recently I had the tall weeds cleaned out of my yard, and made a little trail. It is only 46 steps or a half a minute to go around it, but I have been enjoying it in the early morning before it gets hot. As I walk, I have been reviewing Old Testament verses I memorized while in Bible school. I would encourage you to have verses on cards to meditate on in spare moments even if you don’t feel you are good at memorizing. I am going to do a little study on what the Bible says about meditating on the Word of God.

News From Sue Watt -Feb- 2016

First, a short report on the Tucson Gem show. I thought it would be a great opportunity to give out literature, but I found it took too much of my energy traveling and walking to find places. However, one day I met a woman and her son visiting from Oregon. She used to work here in Tucson and remembered seeing me since I bought things from that store. I gave her a tract and found out she was a believer.  I gave her son some gospel coins in foreign languages for his coin collection. Another day, I enjoyed seeing some beautiful gems, fossils and dinosaur bones. I had seen photos of fossils in creation magazines, but I had not seen any in person since I was a child at the Los Angeles museum. There is so much evidence of a Creator and the flood!


I asked for prayer in my January newsletter that I could find someone who reads Turkish and someone who reads Russian. I was given Gospel books in those two languages. A week ago, I met a University student from Turkey on the bus. She accepted a tract I had with me in Turkish, but I did not have the book with me. I went home and got the book hoping I might find her at the building for studying English on campus. I didn’t find her. A week later, I rode the same bus at the same time hoping she would be on it, but she was not on that bus.


Another time on the bus, I handed a bracelet to an older Asian woman with a girl that looked about five years old. The woman said, “Thank you, thank you” in Chinese to me. I know she said, “Thank you” because I know two words in Chinese, “hello” and “thank you”. I am guessing that she was a visiting grandmother who was picking up the child from school. (The child was wearing a school shirt.) I said “Hello” to them in Chinese as I left the bus because I don’t know how to say “Goodbye”!


I find it amazing the people God brings into my life. When I give some people a bracelet, they respond with an attitude of “this makes my day.” Other people refuse to take it, but most people will accept it when they know it is free. A few people have wanted to pay me for it, but I never accept. However, the other day a woman insisted I take an apple.


Another day, I decided to put some extra tracts in other languages in my purse. (I have a bag with lots of materials, but it is rather heavy to carry every day.) That day I met a Chinese university student on the bus and gave her both English and Chinese tracts. Another time I was able to give one in German. The bus drivers are usually quiet, but this one driver was very talkative. I learned she had come from Germany about 35 years ago, so I gave her a tract in German as well as English.


On January 28, I printed the new wordless book tract to give with the bracelets. I have given out 77 of them since that time. Thank you for praying for me. Please pray for my Chinese friend, Irene; she has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. She is only about 43 years old.

News from Sue January 2016

The big thing on my mind these days is the Annual Tucson Gem, Mineral, and Fossil Show. I went to the Tucson Visitors’ Center a few days ago to get more information. The woman there said the pamphlets telling about it had just arrived. I was the first to get a copy. The pamphlet tells all the times that various booths are open, and which ones are open to the public.  It also has maps showing the locations and special shuttle buses.  I noticed there is even an area of town with bead sellers. I think that would be an interesting area to hand out the wordless book bracelets!

Even though I have lived in Tucson over ten years, I have never been to the Gem show. I hope to attend as much as I am able to give out Gospel literature. The locations are spread all over town. Besides the bracelets, I will have other tracts and Gospels of John. Pray for His opportunities for me. There will be people from all over the world coming to buy and sell. I have some literature in other languages and one book in Russian and one book in Turkish that a friend from Rock International sent to me to give away.

I was working on a Word-less book tract to go with the bracelets. The kind of tract I was using was for children and I wanted to have something more for adults. I had a few setbacks with the project. For a while, I decided to continue using the children’s tracts. However, when I called to order them, the woman helping me said they had just been told that their organization was no longer offering the free children’s Bible study. These tracts were printed on heavy card stock because it included a pull off prepaid post card for the Bible study. Now that that the studies are no longer offered, I felt the cost of the tract was far too high.  Because of this news, I returned to making a simple tract. It is almost finished. I hope to print some this week before the Gem show begins January 29. (It ends February 14.) I also want to make more bracelets. I have 140 bracelets made right now. (It takes me about two minutes to make one.) Thank you for your prayers.
