Notable Quotes

“and I said, ‘you go down and tell them the next time I walk into that place, as a corporal, wearing the uniform of an Air Force person, that they serve me.”

In the Air Force Lincoln Alexander served as a wireless operator in the Royal Canadian Air Force in World War II. While stationed in Vancouver, Alexander was refused service at a bar because of his race. When he reported the incident to a superior officer, and the officer refused to take action, Alexander quit the Air Force, leaving in 1945 with an honourable discharge.

“at that time they didn’t know how to deal with race relations of this sort of thing, they just turned a blind eye to it.”

In 1985, Prime Minister Brian Mulroney appointed Alexander as Lieutenant Governor of Ontario. He became the first black person to serve in a vice regal position in Canada.

ABOUT – JesusWeen is a non profit organization also known as JesusWin. We are focused on helping people live better lives through the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. JesusWeen is a God-given vision which was born as an answer to the cry of many every October 31st. The dictionary meaning of Ween is to expect, believe or think. We therefore see October 31st as a day to expect a gift of salvation and re-think receiving Jesus. 

Every year, the world and its system have a day set aside (October 31st) to celebrate ungodly images and evil characters while Christians all over the world participate, hide or just stay quiet on Halloween day. Being a day that is widely acceptable to solicit and knock on doors, God inspired us to encourage Christians to use this day as an opportunity to spread the gospel. The days of hiding are over and we choose to take a stand for Jesus. “Evil prevails when good people do nothing”. JesusWeen is expected to become the most effective Christian outreach day ever and that is why we also call it” World Evangelism Day”.

OUR MISSION – Our mission is to ensure that JesusWeen becomes a global phenomenon. We have and will continue to share the word of God in love and by doing that, we seek to encourage a culture whereby Christians, regardless of their denomination, reach out to the world around them with the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. The bible references on which our mission is based are as follows: Habakkuk 2:14 “For the earth shall be filled with … ….

How It Started – In 2002, Pastor Paul requested 300 copies of New Testament pocket size Bibles from the Bible Society to use for personal evangelism. A few days before Halloween, a word came to him to give out bibles to everyone knocking at his door expecting candy. On that day over 40 bibles were given out without him stepping out of his house. All it took was putting a bible into every bag as they opened each bag with a smile. It was much easier than expected and since …

FAQ

Jesus Ween Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: I love the idea of Jesus Ween and I intend to participate. However, I would like to give out candy in addition to the tracts and bibles I intend to give. Is this okay?

A: The Jesus Ween initiative is not against candy. It’s all about spreading the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. So if you want to give out candy in addition to your Christian gifts, it is very okay.

Q: I want to participate in this initiative. Do I have to wear a white top on October 31st?

A: Feel free to wear whatever you are comfortable with as long as it is consistent with the message of Jesus you are spreading. We suggested wearing a white top because of those who have cultured themselves to wear an evil depicting costume on that day. You could dress as you do on any normal day.

Q: As a celebrant of Jesus Ween, what do I say to those who knock on my door to trick or treat?

A: Just say “Jesus Loves You” Please don’t get into any argument of some sort. Besides, Jesus did not send us to argue or to debate with the world, He sent us to spread the good news (gospel). Telling anyone (young or old) that Jesus loves them is the good news.

Q: Where can I get the bibles to give out?

A: You can click on the side menu on Jesus Ween.com titled “Bibles under $2”. It will bring you to a website where you can order as many types and quantity of Bibles you want. We also have tracts available on our website for free that you can print and distribute.

Q: Is it your objective to hijack Halloween and replace it with Jesus Ween?

A: No, that is not the objective. The objective is to spread the gospel and expand the kingdom of God here on earth. Jesus Ween is an alternative for anyone who chooses not to celebrate Halloween, and especially for most Christians. Many Christians are not knowledgeable about the spiritual implications of some aspects of Halloween which is why we encourage them to choose Jesus Ween, the Godly alternative on October 31st. Jesus Ween is about celebrating life not death.

Q: You could have chosen any other day in the year to spread the gospel but you chose October 31st. Why?

A: There’s no better day to choose. October 31st presents us with a unique opportunity to spread the gospel in that it is a day that is widely acceptable to solicit and go door to door, which is why we also call it World Evangelism Day. You don’t even have to go out of your way; people will come to your doorstep anyway. So why not take advantage of the opportunities presented to us to make an impact.

Q: What comes next after Jesus Ween?

A: The JesusWin celebration comes after Jesus Ween. It will run for two weeks (Nov 1 to Nov 15). This will be a celebration of the results. Many will share their testimonies on JesusWeen.com, in some churches and on the forums available to us. We will tell it on the mountain tops and praise God for making us relevant and for the opportunity to help others.

Q: What is Jesus Win?

A: JesusWin is a gift giving festival among Christians and Church friends. Its also a time to appreciate your Pastors and many others who volunteer or help promote the Christian faith. It’s also a time to help the poor by giving or volunteering with other institutions that help the poor.

Press Release

September 12, 2011

October 31st is fast approaching and God has inspired us to encourage Christians all over the world to do it differently this year. We introduce to you the JesusWeen Christian gift giving festival which we hope will be an alternative for those who don’t celebrate or believe in Halloween. The dictionary meaning of Ween is to expect, believe or think. We therefore see October 31st as a day to expect a salvation gift or re-think receiving Jesus.

We strongly believe this initiative will be beneficial to all Christians, Churches and Christian Bookstores as well. It will have a positive effect and provide an alternative to millions of people. JesusWeen (October 31st) is expected to become the most effective Christian outreach day ever and that’s why we also call it “World Evangelism Day”. It’s a day to give out Christian gifts, just as God gave us Jesus.

No more hiding on October 31st…You can participate in a positive way. JESUSWEEN is all about spreading the gospel on October 31st. We are not supporting or endorsing the celebration of Halloween but we have chosen to use the only day in most countries that individuals are allowed to solicit, interact and exchange gifts without breaking the law.

How to Participate:

JesusWeen has been carefully planned with everyone in mind. Churches, ministries, businesses, individuals and groups can all participate financially, physically and prayerfully. While we hope to impact more nations from next year, our focus for this year is to make major impact in Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton in Canada; focus on Maryland, Houston and Dallas in the USA; and London in the UK. In reality, JesusWeen will be held by many groups, individuals or churches all over the world, therefore it is not restricted to any particular city. All you need to do is pray first, then form a group and inform us via our email contact form by Clicking Here! and we will provide you with further information and guidance. You will do a great job, only believe!


Physical Participation:

INDIVIDUALS: can participate by giving out several Christian gifts on October 31st and especially when someone knocks on your door expecting candy, we prescribe you give a pocket size bible, Christian musical or teaching cd, Tracts, Poems, etc. You can print posters from JesusWeen website to post in your church or local bookstore. You can also give out your used Christian books and cds. Hope to have free publications and affordable links to buy helpful gift items.

GROUPS: can be formed through church fellowships, cell groups, friends and colleagues. Each group of at least two people can go door to door evangelizing. We recommend very little dialogue and more focus on giving one of our recommended gift items or Christian books you already read with the hope to buy new ones.

CHURCHES: can use October 31st to evangelize in the neighbourhoods close to them. The Tracts or Christian books can have the address of the local church or fellowship to help the recipients know where to get more of the Good News.
