Frankly, I Am Bad at Evangelism!

"Bad” and “good” are relative terms and regardless of how bad we may be, or think we are, we can always improve. We can always become more comfortable in telling people about Jesus. We can all become more effective—effective enough to see God do some amazing things in the lives of unsaved friends and relatives, and even initial contact acquaintances. Here are three simple suggestions for going from “bad” to “better” and maybe eventually even to “good.” 

Venezuelan Pastors & Wives Energized & Equipped by Good Soil E&D

Over 800 Venezuelans arrive in Brazil each day, fleeing the economic upheaval in their country that threatens them with poverty, violence, and even starvation. One of the cities most impacted is Boa Vista, the first, major, Brazilian city south of Venezuela where over 40,000 migrants have settled, now comprising more than 10% of its population. In early December 2018, 58 more were travelling to this city, albeit for a very different purpose. They were a group of pastors and wives coming for three days of Good Soil Evangelism & Discipleship (GSED) training. GSED equips believers to share God’s story of redemption chronologically so that people will clearly understand, sincerely embrace, and firmly hold on to the gospel. 

Resolutions for a New Year

Are you like many or most of us Christ-followers—know you need to tell your friends and relatives about Jesus, but hesitate to initiate the witness? Maybe some New Year’s resolutions would help. So what if only about 46 per cent of resolution makers stick to their resolutions six months into the year, according to one recent study. Even that success rate is better than nothing—better than not resolving to share the good news with people in our lives who need to hear it. What Dr. John Northcross, a clinical psychologist, discovered was impressive: 46 percent of resolution-makers successfully worked toward their goal, while only 4 percent of those who didn’t make a resolution saw their desired outcome become a reality six months later. So, it’s better to “resolve” than not to resolve. Here are five evangelism resolutions for you to consider:
