Witnessing: Convincing Others

Go-p1

Witnessing to others is one of those things that can cause heart flutters and bouts of fainting in people! Sharing ones faith is not always an easy thing to do for many reasons. Fear of rejection, fear of ridicule… But we cannot let those fears prevent us from witnessing and we must encourage others to witness as well…

Witnessing: Following Through!

Go-p1

If you just carried out the first three posts about witessing we would be doing great! At least more people would be hearing the Gospel message personally.

GodBox

I have often told my wife that I have a box in the back of my head.
