Jesus Ween Frequently Asked Questions:
Qn: How is JesusWeen different from World Evangelism Day?
Ans: JesusWeen aka JesusWin is a dedicated day to uplift people by giving out Christian scriptural gifts to our neighbours and strangers, especially those who knock on your door, pay you a visit, or patronize your business. This takes place more within your home, work, or immediate neighborhood. The World Evangelism Day is similar but more effective if done in groups or as a church. This involves going out to parks, malls and the entire neighbourhood to give a Christian life changing gift to anyone that is willing to receive them. Faith groups and churches can create a plan for the entire city, or impact different areas of the city each year. We do encourage local collaborations to ensure churches are more effective. This joyful harvest outreach guarantees us working together and reaching the entire world regardless of our location or denomination. JesusWeen could also be done as a group but we recommend the focus area should be closer to your home or work, while the WorldEvangelismDay should be done as a group with a focus on your city and nation. It’s important to be strategic and thoughtful when planning. You may need a few weeks or months to plan, while a full year plan may be more appropriate if you are planning as a group or church. We should include prayers in our planning as well as fasting to ensure we succeed in winning more people to the body of Christ and grow yearly. JesusWeen is an annual global festival that holds every October 31st, while the next day is World Evangelism Day, November 1st.
Qn: What’s the meaning of WEEN?
Ans: Unless the dictionary meaning of ween gets revamped in the future, most of the dictionary meaning states ween is the ability to believe, think, expect and imagine. So JesusWeen is a season to think. expect, imagine and believe in Jesus.
Qn: I love the idea of Jesus Ween and I intend to participate. However, I would like to give out candy in addition to the bibles. Is this okay?
Ans: The Jesus Ween initiative is not entirely against candy. It’s about spreading the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, and some a welcome to give out candies in addition to Christian gifts. We recommend our energy should be invested into meaningful activities like feeding the poor while giving out life changing gifts instead of sugaring substance that will further destroy people’s health.
Qn: I want to participate in this initiative. Do I have to wear a white top on October 31st?
Ans: People are welcome to wear whatever makes them comfortable, as long as it is consistent with the gospel we are spreading. We previously suggested wearing white tops because of those who have cultured themselves to wear an evil depicting costume on October 31st. People should dress as they do on any normal day.
Qn: As a celebrant of Jesus Ween, what do I say to those who knock on my door to trick or treat?
Ans: Just say “Jesus Loves You” or “I have a gift for you”. Please do not 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 everyone (young or old) that Jesus loves them is the good news.
Qn: Where can I get the bibles to give out?
Ans: We previously helped with making bibles and tracts available, and we will help with such resources in the future. You can find organizations who provide bibles for free or for less than $2 online or within your city. You could also create your own tract or order from a Christian organization. Digital tracts and spreading of the gospel is also an effective avenue.
Qn: Is it your objective to hijack Halloween and replace it with JesusWeen?
Ans: No, that is not our primary 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, especially for 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.
Qn: You could have chosen any other day in the year to spread the gospel but you chose October 31st. Why?
Ans: There’s no better day to choose as the bible encourages us to preach everyday. October 31st presents us with a unique opportunity to spread the gospel. This is a day that is widely acceptable to solicit and go door to door, which is why we also call it World Evangelism Day and included November 1st for a peaceful outreach to show love by giving out free gifts like Jesus freely gave us salvation. You don’t 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.
Qn: What is JesusWin?
Ans: JesusWin is when a Christian gift of salvation is given to someone, or whenever the gospel is preached, or when someone receives salvation during a JesusWeen Outreach. The end goal is the seed of salvation has been planted and such a person either gets saved or has the opportunity to think and learn about God and to begin their journey that may eventually lead them to salvation. This is consistent with what Jesus did on the cross, by defeating death, sin, satan and other forces of darkness.
Qn: What comes next after Jesus Ween?
Ans: The World Evangelism Day is on November 1st and that encourages faith groups and churches to reach-out to everyone in our neighborhoods. This is also a time for us to gather in groups and churches to share testimonies, feedbacks and to pray for those we have reached. We also encourage participants to share their testimonies on JesusWeen.com or WorldEvangelismDay.com or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or our social media accounts, that’s assuming we are not yet censored. We will tell it on the mountain tops and praise God for making us relevant by giving us such a wonderful opportunity to uplift others.
