Here are some ideas to help you reach out to your unsaved loved ones and friends this week.
* Write a letter to a friend or a love one telling them how you got saved and how Christ has made a difference in your life.
Here is how Diego put it last week during Sunday School:
L-ove...remember to write the note in love - don't criticize or condemn the person whom you are writing to...the Holy Spirit will work on them.
E-mpathize - think about what they are going through in their live right now.
T-ruth -remember to include the gospel!
E-nd strong - remember that post people will remember the beginning and ending of your letter.
R-emember to pray for the person receiving the letter (this the "R" I added) and to read and reread your letter over and over again to make sure it says what you want it to and that the gospel is clearly presented.
*You can also send an email using the "LETTER" tips, instead of writing a handwritten note.
Be a witness in all your correspondence - use scripture or quotes from Spurgeon, Bunyan, Wesley, and other great men of God.
*Make a phone call to an unsaved friend or loved one. Invite them to church and tell them about Christ. I created an answering machine message on my cell phone that gave the gospel....I can't remember exactly what I said, but I used the verse:
Romans 10:13: "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
and used that to explain salvation....I wish I could remember exactly what I said.

Did you know that airplanes were made for passing out gospel tracts?
