Dear Brethren,

I like to share a handout “Helps for Witnessing”. In our sharing of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to unbelievers, we should present the Gospel clearly, orderly and supported with Bible verses. Beware of digressing and argument which is not beneficial to the unbeliever at all. As someone says, we can win an argument but lose the soul. Pray and stay focus in sharing the Gospel. Most important, have a genuine heart of concern and care for the soul of the unbelieving person that we share the Gospel to.

Our 9 March 2013 (Sat) Chinese Gospel meeting and 24 March 2013 Gospel Worship Sunday are opportunities for us to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ and invite some unbelievers to come. There is a big harvest field and labourers are few. Will you do something good for Christ this month in March?  May the lyrics of this chorus stir our hearts to seize every opportunity to evangelise for the Lord.

Lead me to some soul today,
O teach me, Lord, just what to say;
Friends of mine are lost in sin,
And cannot find their way.
Few there are who seem to care,
And few there are who pray;
Melt my heart, and fill my life,
Give me one soul today
