An Important Question

Wally Bruder has a burden for Spanish-speaking people in Southern California where he lives. “[The Holy Spirit] just put them on my heart,” he says. “I go wherever the Hispanic people congregate,” he says. “You do whatever you have to do reach these precious people.”
Six nights out of seven, you’ll find him where Hispanic people gather so that he can share the Spanish version of Life’s Most Important Question one-on-one. This past summer, he distributed tracts at the Los Angeles County Fair, Hispanic festivals, grocery stores, and even big-box businesses where he could encounter Spanish-speakers.
He remembers sharing the pamphlet with a man in Tijuana. “He just started sobbing,” Wally remembers. “He’d been asking the Lord, ‘How do I know You?’ It was a divine appointment. I’ll never forget the look on his face.”
The Life’s Most Important Question tract is a valuable witnessing tool for Wally. “I can’t thank the people at BMH Books enough for making this available,” he says. “This is the most important message anyone will ever receive,” he adds. “You want to make sure you have the best presentation. Your booklet has accomplished that.”
Published by 
BMH Books, a sister organization of GraceConnect, the pamphlets are available in Spanish and English, which use either King James or New International Version Scripture. A box of 100 is available for $15, or 15 cents each. A case of 1,750 may be purchased for less than $250.
It is time to re-order 
Life's Most Important Question in the Spanish language, but we need your help. Because we like to keep the individual costs low, we order larger quantities. Each time one of the versions is produced it costs $4,000 to $6,000 or more, depending on how many we order, plus shipping to our warehouse.

Occasionally, we ask you, as a subscriber of GraceConnect eNews, to support financially the work of GraceConnect and BMH Books, both ministries of the Brethren Missionary Herald Company. This is one of those times.

[Your Turn]


"The church of Jesus is a different place. We don’t gather here because we have anything special, outside of Jesus. We recognize we aren’t the most talented, most obedient, most likely to succeed group. We don’t bring anything to the table, except for a deep-seated need for the love and grace of God in our lives."

Benjamin Russell, assistant to the pastor at Grace Church of Sebring, Fla. (Randall Smith, senior pastor), blogs at His latest post explores the last verses of Psalm 36 and our dependence on God as the key to overcoming adversity, trials, and temptations.
