NEW! For use with travelers, such as tourists, that you will not be able to visit for discipleship, we suggest that you use a tract with "GodLife" in the filename. Instead of refering the reader to your church or pastor, these tracts refer the reader to http://godlife.com, a website with evangelistic and discipling materials, sponsored by Global Media Outreach.
We have designed a half-sized tract so that you can print two tracts on one sheet of paper. So for the same money, you can print twice as many tracts. The print is not too small for young eyes, but old people may need the full size tracts. These tracts have a smaller margin (only 0.18 inch), which may be too small for some printers. If your tracts are missing some letters near the edge, you may need to set your printer to a "borderless" mode.
The 'HS' in the file name stands for Half Size. If you don't have a paper cutter, you can fold the sheet in half and use a knife to cut at the fold.
NOTICE: All the Cebuano files have been changed to correct a wrong spelling of Cristo in Juan 20:11. If you are using Cebuano tracts, download your file again to correct the error.
This trifold tract, originally written in Cebuano (Visaya) and translated into other languages, explains the Biblical offer of salvation, using scripture references and a diagram. The tracts are available here in five languages, indicated by the word for "salvation" in each language in the file name, as follows:
Kaluwasan – Cebuano
Wokovu – Swahili
Warruok – Luo
سالویشن Najaat – Urdu

1,269,120 tracts (254 boxes) have been printed and distributed since June of 2015, except about 2 or 3 boxes currently in progress.
In November 2018, the total finally went over one million tracts! And the current rate of distribution averages 3,115 tracts per day. At this rate, the tracts total will reach two million by October 2019.
To save space, we now show the number of boxes beyond the first one million tracts (200 boxes) --
(Each box holds 5,000 tracts.)
The rate of tract distribution has been increasing, as indicated by the graph shown here.
These are mostly printed in Cebuano, English, Swahili, and Luo, and mostly distributed in western Kenya and southern Philippines (Mindanao). Distribution in Pakistan was stopped because of persecution. New areas are eastern Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, central Philippines, and The Gambia (western Africa). At least 127 pastors and evangelists (listed below) lead, or have led, evangelism teams that distribute these tracts. Please pray for these evangelists and for the readers of these tracts.

You can support this tract ministry by sending a donation to About-Face Missions, designated "SBS Tracts". (See https://afm.ngo/donate for details). The cost of 100 tracts is $0.90 in the Philippines and is $0.78 in Kenya. Reports suggest that on average, four priceless souls are saved for every 100 tracts, that is, for less than one dollar. Of course. souls cannot be bought for money -- the price of our salvation was the suffering and death of Jesus Christ. But God needs people to deliver the Gospel so that people can be saved. (Romans 10:13-17) Hundreds of volunteers are delivering these tracts, but don't have the money to buy or print the tracts. Your donations are needed, and the "four priceless souls for less than one dollar" estimate shows that your money will be well spent -- an enormous bargain from a spiritual viewpoiut.
is a box-enclosed area on the back of each tract for contact
information, beginning with the words "for more information,
visit" (or the equivalent in other languages). For files
with "blank" in the file name, this box has no contact
information, but you can add your own information before printing
it. The other files have contact information for various
pastors, with the pastor's name replacing "blank" in the
For help customizing a tract with your church information, email Jim Clark:
Files with "_big" in the file name are a large-print version, which use two sheets of paper for each tract instead of one sheet. Files with "_HS" in the file name are a Half-Size version, which provides two tracts on each sheet of paper. Files with "_A4" in the filename are formatted for A4 paper; otherwise, for 8.5 by 11 inch paper.
Click on any file name in the list to view the file. (If you don't have the PDF file viewer "Adobe Acrobat Reader", go to Adobe.com.) When you see the file in the PDF file viewer, you can:

add or edit the contact information.
(For HS tracts, the information appears twice, but you only need to edit one.)
(flipping on the long side if HS, else flipping on the short side).
After printing, you can:
the tract as indicated (for full-size tracts)
(but no trimming for a "big" version)
(only cut in half for half-size version)
the tract (in thirds, for the full- and half-size versions -- look
for the guide-mark;
or each sheet in half for the "big" version).

A few of the files listed below are not tracts. One is an account by one pastor about how he has used tracts in evangelism and church planting. Another file is a "prospect slip" for recording the name and location of each person that needs follow-up because they accepted Christ as Savior or have questions or need prayer for some special reason. The "response record" file is similar. There is also a file with illustrated instructions for folding and cutting the tracts. You can print these instructions and give it to those that will do this work.
Below is a list of files that you can access. Just click on the file name, and you will be able to view the file or to download it.
