Personal Evangelism

Practical Missions


“I got a phone call from a telemarketer. He was trying to sell me something. I shyly asked him about salvation. I explained that he needed to be saved.”

– Kacie Newsome

“In September 2020 on a Saturday, I had decided to catch up with a long-time friend from a few years back in college; His name is Brian. Brian has been laid on my heart for a while to witness to. I wanted him to know about Jesus and what He has done for us.”

-Cody Williamson

“My friend Satwikaa, a Hindu in India, likes to ask me spiritual questions like ‘What are demons?, How powerful are angels and demons?, Who is Satan?’, and others.  I have been answering her questions in accordance with the Bible for months”

– Cathy Danam
