Memory Cross has created the Roman Road Gospel tracts in English, Spanish and English, Haitian Creole and English and Romanian and English. Each tract fascinates children with four panels that makes an endless loop. The video below shows how each tract folds.
The tracts are printed in black and white so children can use their creativity to color the card, which makes it much more likely that kids will keep and read them over and over again. They measure 6 inches by 6 inches so if you are taking them on a mission trips they pack easily into a suitcase.
After going on several mission trips and getting feedback from others who took these tracts on mission trips we decided to make them bi-lingual in Spanish and English, Haitian-Creole and English and Romanian and English. We found that most children in other countries are interested in learning English, and by including English on the tract allows children to learn God’s plan of salvation in English as well as their own language.
Another benefit we’ve found is that once children learn the tract in English they want to tell their parents and friends, so they become little evangelists spreading the Gospel. One of the most important things you can do on a mission trip is to let kids and adults know that God loves them, and Memory Cross’ Roman Road Gospel tracts are one of the most effective ways to do that.
Roman Roads Gospel Tracts
If you are going to a country that speaks another language we can translate the card into any language. It takes 3 to 4 weeks to produce a custom order. If you would like a free sample or more information on any of the cards we’ve included some information below.
Memory Cross makes fun and creative Gospel Tracts for mission trips. Each tract is designed using our exclusive endless loop design, which kids love. They are printed in black and white so it can be used as a craft project. The card is also in English along with another language which allows you to teach children that God loves them and has a plan for their life in English and their language.
If you are getting ready to go on a mission trip and will be working with children here are some Christian tracts that are worth checking out. Tracts are available in a variety of languages using the unique Memory Cross endless loop design. Most are black and white, allowing kids to color them. If you don’t know how the card works, watch the video. I think you’ll be impressed.
Gospel Tracts for mission trips in other languages
They are available in English, Spanish, Haitian-Creole, French, Romanian, Wordless and can be translated into any language with a minimum of 250 cards. Most cards are in English and another language. This allows people going on the mission trip to share God’s plan of salvation better with children. Many use this card to teach kids the English words, which really helps make the card special, plus kids will then go teach the tract to their friends and parents.
Here are a few of the tracts available for mission trips.
The Memory Cross Gospel tracts offer a hands on experience for children, which helps kids better understand God’s plan of salvation. Kids everywhere love the endless loop design, which they will continue to play with even after you leave. The card also makes a nice craft project allowing children to make it their own through coloring or stickers. Finally the Gospel is presented not only in their native language but also in English. Most children in other countries want to learn English and what better thing to learn in English than God loves them and has a plan for their life.

Memory Cross has a new Halloween Gospel tract for children that makes evangelism simple.
Halloween is the only day of the year when children knock on your door and ask for a treat. With this new Halloween Gospel Tract for children you’ll not only give them something that is really “cool” but let them know that God loves them. Kids love candy, but candy won’t change anyone’s life, at least not for the better, but Jesus can. Here are some interesting statistics:
- Eighty two percent of people would consider visiting a church if asked.
- Ninety two percent (92%) of church members never invite one person in a given year.
- Two thirds of people are willing to receive information about a local church.
- Most people come to church because of a personal invitation.
Memory Cross’ new Halloween tract is a creative way to share the Good News with children while inviting the parents to visit your church. The copy on each panel is shown below.
As you can see this evangelism tract for Halloween lets children know that God loves them, has a plan for their life and wants them to live a full and abundant life. On the last panel there is a space for to write in the name and address of your church and a link in case children or adults want to know more about following Jesus.
As Christians Jesus commanded us to go and make disciples. The first step is telling people about Jesus. In America 92% of people do not share the Gospel nor invite even one person to church. At Halloween if you have 25 kids knock on your door, you can let 25 children know that Jesus loves them and invite them to church.
Does handing out a Halloween tract make a difference? We are called to sow the seed. God is the one that makes it grow but every year we receive stories of children who have asked Jesus into their hearts and adults who decided to start visiting a church. You never know how God is working in someone’s life. The video below is one person’s story of how an act of kindness and tract changed her life, the life of her husband and those of their friends.
The evangelism tract for children can be used for trick or treat or trunk or treat. Either way it is a simple way to share the Gospel that children will appreciate receiving.
This is one of several Halloween Gospel tracts Memory Cross has created to share God’s love with children. They can be ordered below or by visiting our website where you’ll find our other Halloween Gospel tracts and order a free sample pack. You’ll pay $3.00 to help cover the cost of shipping.
Halloween is a tremendous opportunity to reach children with the Gospel and bring new families into your church. “Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” – Matthew 28:19.
Fun Gospel Tracts for kids
Finding Gospel tracts written for kids that they enjoy and will keep can be a challenge.
Memory Cross noticed the lack of tracts written for kids and has created a number of Gospel tracts designed especially for children, who find the endless loop design fascinating. The tracts are available in English, Spanish, Haitian Creole, French, Romanian and a wordless version.
The image and video below show how each card folds.
Most of the Gospel tracts for kids are printed in black and white which allows them to also be a craft activity where children can color or decorate the cards with stickers. The tracts are in variety of languages including: bi-linguel in Spanish/English, Haitian Creole/English and Romanian/English which makes it easier to work with children on a mission trip.
Each card is printed on a premium 100 lb. uncoated cover that is made from recycled paper and measure 6 inches square, which is a good size for kids to handle.
There are tracts designed for mission trips which present the Gospel and tracts for use as a local outreach and with events like Halloween. Some of the tracts that are available include:
- God’s plan of salvation in English, Haitian Creole
- Roman Road in Haitian Creole and English, Roman Road in KJV, Roman Road NIV, Roman Road Spanish, Roman Road English and Romanian, Roman Road English and Spanish
- I am the good shepherd English and Spanish
- Wordless Gospel tract
There are also cards that are used to teach children Bible stories such as the 10 Commandments, the birth of Moses, the first Passover, creation story, God frees Peter from prison, God’s love doodling cards also available in French and Spanish along with Halloween trick or treat Gospel tracts.
The Memory Cross design is different from anything else currently on the market. Sometimes it is hard to grasp how effective the design is so we offer a free sample pack. Normally we ask that you pay for shipping but if you put int he code “new” in the discount code we’ll even pick up the shipping. (offer only good in the United States).
Gospel Tract Reviews: Do you use Gospel tracts? Why? Which ones do you like best?
Gospel tracts have been used for centuries as a short, effective (or not so effective) way to share the Gospel with both children and adults. While the internet has changed the way many of us share our faith, Gospel tracts can still be an effective tool. They are generally a short read and easy to carry around.
My daughter works at a Seafood restaurant, Sanibel’s in High Point NC and every week she receives 3 to 5 tracts. Some are well done with a personal invitation to visit the church and some are very ineffective.
Here is my opinion on what makes a good Gospel tract:
- Positive message that draws people to God. I personally do not like any of the burn in Hell tracts that she receives. Jesus came with compassion and love. His anger and warning to turn back and follow God or you will burn in Hell was mostly directed toward the religious leaders. While I know of a few stories that someone gave their life to God as the result of receiving at Gospel tract I think most are one step in leading people to God. I like them if they present the full Gospel or have a link to the web with more information. A QR code with a link is even better but I do not eliminate Gospel tracts that do not present the entire Gospel on them.
- An interesting design or graphics that draws attention. If you find one that captures attention either through really cool graphics or a creative design that Gospel tract will far more likely to be read and kept.
Top Gospel Tracts
Here is a list of some of the top Gospel tract companies that you may want to check out. I left out one because I do not agree with their methods (or designs. They make really ugly tracts). I know a lot of people love them and their message but personally I would not want to be standing in front of Jesus trying to explain why I handed out those tracts so here is my “sanitized list”
- Living Waters tracts. They do a lot more than just tracts but each tract that I have seen I’ve liked. Good message and nice design.
- Billy Graham Evangelistic Association – Billy Graham has been a beacon since the 50s sharing the Christian message and his organization continues to spread the Gospel in many different ways.
- Crossway – They are a large publishing house and purchase American Tract Society a few years ago.
- Memory Cross – Ok you are on our site but if you landed here from a search engine we make a variety of origami inspired tracts for children, youth and adults. There is a video below that shows how they fold.
- Tract Planet – They produce tracts both custom and standard
- Fellowship Tract league – They take donations to cover the cost of tracts and then offer them for free if you cannot afford to pay for them.
Here is the video I mentioned that shows how a Memory Cross folds.

Haitian Gospel Tracts – A Resource list
There are a lot of mission trips to Haiti so we decided to put together all the Haitian Gospel tracts we could find into one list with links. Sharing the gospel is one of our responsibilities as God’s people. Since we have been saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and we got our salvation at no cost, it would be really nice to be able to spread this wonderful message to others. The future after death of the lost people depends upon our courage to teach and preach the gospel.
Some people do not share the gospel because they don’t know how to. This problem has long time been resolved; there are so many trainings and discipleship seminars now that we can join in order for us to learn how to evangelize. Most of these trainings are free; some are even made for our access online at no cost because this is what God wants us to do: be able to share the Good News to as many people as we can in every way we can. We thought of creating and sharing Haitian Gospel tracts and here is the reason why.
The Language in Haiti
Creole is the only language spoken and understood by all Haitians, and the majority speak Creole only. Yet, the language of instruction in schools is French. Schoolchildren are penalized for their use of Creole, even though the State’s national curriculum prescribes its use in primary schools and even though the Haitian Constitution states that “Creole and French are the official languages.’’ English, at this time isn’t considered a primary or a secondary language in Haiti which means that it can be quite difficult for us.
The challenge in sharing the good news
Sharing the gospel to Haitians can be a very challenging part for those who don’t know how to speak in Creole or French. This is why most missionaries to Haiti have seminars to Haiti’s culture and language before going for a missionary exposure in order for them to be able to communicate to the Haitians.
Sharing the gospel to the people in Haiti
Whether you’re a missionary or not, if you have a friend from Haiti or you are planning on visiting Haiti for a vacation or a mission trip, you can take that opportunity to tell the Haitians about Jesus and His love for them as well as His desire to save them from the condemnation of sin and eternity in the lake of fire. Thankfully, today, there are many organizations and Christian companies who want to make sure that the gospel is preached to the people in Haiti. There are so many resources we can run to in order to spread the gospel to the Haitians. Here are a few of the many we can use:
Haitian Creole Gospel tract for kids from Memory Cross
Memory cross has finished a simple yet very effective tool in sharing the gospel to the children in Haiti. The tract is designed using the panel design that never stop folding it captures the attention of children while presenting the Gospel in their native language. The tract is made for the children to be able to color or put stickers on it. This tract is one of the best resources to use in sharing the gospel to Haiti children.
Haitian Gospel tracts from Hope Missions
Hope Missions also has Gospel Tracts (4″x 6″ card stock) available in several languages: English, Spanish, Haitian, Creole, Dutch, Portuguese, and Romanian. We can use all of these in sharing the Gospel.
Creole Gospel Tracts for Adults
Gospeltracts.org has more gospel tracts options we can choose from for our adult targets. Bible Gospel Tracts are simple yet powerful and illustrative for sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ and so we wanted to make sure these are maximized especially for those made for Haitian’s native language.
Operation Somebody Cares distribution tracts
Another wonderfully made gospel tract specially created in Haitian Creole is available in their website that we can order and distribute during mission trips to Haiti. This is about a story of an unsaved man’s life after death. Many Haitian adults can relate to this story. This tract can be a very efficient tool to use in sharing the gospel.
Free downloadable tracts from Tracts.com
Tracts.com has a great witnessing tool that can be printed and distributed for pennies a piece and is readily available online. In order to reproduce, all you have to do is print side “A” on one side and side “B” on the opposite side of the same piece of paper. Fold the tracts so the front cover (the first panel of side “A”) is face up. That’s as easy as 1, 2, 3 – you can distribute them right away!
Haitians are known for being very hospitable. They love having visitors in their homes. This is very comforting for us to know especially if we’re planning to visit Haiti for a mission trip any time soon. Sharing the Gospel to them can be challenging, but knowing that they are very adaptable and open to visitors, we can be assured that Salvation can be easily accepted and that, with God’s help, they will understand the Gospel of the Grace of God and will accept the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.
What a wonderful experience that will be! These Haitian Gospel tracts are just tools we can use: we have to leave the results to God and just do our part in spreading the Gospel. But there is no doubt that these tracts will be a great help for us in sharing the Good News of Salvation to the people of Haiti.

Evangelism began during the time of the Old Testament when prophets like Isaiah and Elijah were called by God to be his mouthpieces to speak his message. These were usually warnings, encouraging the people to repent and turn their back from sin to prevent the destruction that would fall upon them.
From reading the Old Testament, we understand that since the beginning of time, God has always wanted to reach out to his people and save them.
In the New Testament, evangelism continued and intensified. We know that the Plan of Salvation was ultimately fulfilled when Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose again after the third day. Through this, we now know for sure that Jesus is our Lord and Savior, the Messiah that hundreds of prophets during the Old Testament had anticipated.
Now, aside from repentance and punishment, evangelism today highlights Jesus Christ and the message of hope and salvation.
A Brief History of Gospel Tracts:
A common method of evangelizing today is handing out gospel tracts. A gospel tract is simply a piece of paper that presents a message or the gospel. Now, would you believe that the first gospel tract was written by someone who was not a Christian?
It is believed that the inscription placed on Jesus’ cross, which read “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews,” which was written by Pilate. Some consider this as the first gospel tract because of its message and because it is written in three languages, Aramaic, Latin and Greek, many understood it and were provided with a description of Jesus’ identity as a King but not of this world.
People contend that this inscription served the purpose of a gospel tract because some who have read it might have put their faith in Jesus. For example, the thief crucified beside Jesus recognized who he is and asked him for mercy. At that same moment, he received salvation.
Strictly speaking though, the use of what we consider today as gospel tracts could have originated as early as the 13th century, predating the development of the printing press and were used as persuasive religious material. They became popular during the Protestant Reformation, the most popular of which is “The Four Spiritual Laws” written by Bill Bright of Campus Crusade for Christ.
How do we use Gospel Tracts?
Today, there are many different kinds of Christian tracts and Bible tracts. You can see many forms of gospel tracts ranging from simple ones that present a text form of the message and creative ones like the popular $1-million dollar bill and origami tracts. I even saw some electronic Bible tract apps, which are also great to use. They are presented in many unique ways that grab a person’s attention. For example, written on the dollar bill is an immensely big amount of money, $1,000,000. The origami tract, because of its very nature, makes the opening and reading of the tract irresistible.
While different, all of these Christian tracts operate on the same principle: to show people that all of us are sinful in nature, introduce Jesus to them, and show them what Salvation truly means.
There are no clear-cut rules on how we are supposed to use gospel tracts, but this article simply sums up two instances when we are encouraged to give out Christian tracts: “when you do not have the opportunity to have a conversation” and “when you want to leave a person with some follow up material.”
The first instance applies to when we have a brief meeting with people such as with those in the service industry like waiters and cashiers, during long commutes in the bus or even during plane flights, or even during long queues. Generally, these are instances that don’t allow you to have a deep conversation with the person involved.
On the other hand, the second instance describes moments when we have already shared the Gospel to someone but need to leave them follow-up material that they can peruse after you go. Even better, they can use the Bible tract that you left to evangelize to another person.
Do Christians today still need to use Gospel Tracts?
While many believe that relationship evangelism works best, the truth is that it is imprudent to discount any form of evangelism or proselytizing as ineffective and totally dismiss them. We do not know the hearts of most people, and sometimes, a single tract is all it takes for them to believe in Jesus and accept him as their Lord and Savior.
On the other hand, it is prudent to not leave any stone unturned and considering using all forms of evangelism that result to people hearing and understanding the message of Salvation. Because it is not possible for all of us to sit down with every person we meet to share the message in an in-depth manner, it is our belief that God can use Christian and Bible tracts in order to make the message be read by more people.
Passing out gospel tracts or even just leaving them in strategic places is also a test of faith for us Christians. Sometimes, when we spend a lot of time sharing the Gospel to another person, it can become about us and our ability to persuade. This should not be the case because the Gospel is not about us.
But when we give out tracts, particularly in situations that we can’t control, we are reminded that the Holy Spirit moves in people’s hearts even without our help. God can and will use these tools to show the people who he really is and his plan for us. Thus, we believe that Christians today still need to use and distribute gospel tracts.

As Christians, we are expected to share the Gospel every day, but it is undeniably special to share the message of Salvation during Easter. Do you agree? I believe this is because during this holiday, the focus is on Jesus and on what he did when he went down to earth. Jesus died on the cross and resurrected and ultimately triumphed over evil, which are the essential components of the Gospel.
However, it is also easy to get caught up with the activities that go with Easter. After all, most Christians are expected to not only celebrate Easter but also conduct or attend activities at home and in church. But it is not impossible to share the Good News despite the busyness. On the contrary, we need to take advantage of the opportunity of meeting people during the occasion. I recommend you use Easter Gospel Tracts to share the message, and here are a few of the great tracts that you can use:
Easter Gospel Tracts
- “He Arose” by Clyde Dennis
This is a classic tract that is simple and straightforward yet very sincere in delivering the Gospel. It begins by telling the Easter story – from Jesus’ death to the resurrection. Then, using Biblical passages, it explains the meaning of Jesus’ resurrection and what it should mean to every person.
The tract is available here.
- “The Hope of Easter”
Like the first tract, this Easter Gospel tract also tells the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection and explains what it means. However, it gives more focus to what we need to do in response. Do you accept or reject the truth? What is your decision?
The tract is available here.
- “Six Little Words”
Reading the title of this tract alone piques anyone’s curiosity to know what these “six little words” are and why they are so important. Simply put, these are the six little words: Jesus lived. Jesus died. Jesus lives! The message inside the tract explains the relevance of these words.
The tract is available here.
- “What if there was no Resurrection?” by Dr. Charles Stanley
Yet another Easter Gospel tract that poses an interesting question is this tract. Have you ever asked yourself what would have happened if Jesus did not rise from the dead? Aside from addressing this question, this tract focuses on the truth about the Resurrection and challenges the reader to make a decision.
The tract is available here.
- “What does the Cross really mean?” by Memory Cross
Finally, here in Memory Cross, we have a Gospel tract that delivers the message through a unique premise, which is by answering a simple question that many unbelievers and even believers may ask: What does the Cross really mean? By answering this question, the tract aims to give light to Jesus’ sacrifice, triumph, and what it means for us.
The tract is available here.
What are you planning to do on Easter? We hope sharing the Gospel is one of them!
