Class Ends - Work Begins

We completed, last night, a series of about 3 months of classes on Thursday nights on Visitation, Door knocking and Soul-winning. We have had 8 (sometimes 9) people in the class. We ended the series with everyone coming to our house and we practiced knocking on our door and giving different responses at the door and how to deal with each.
The idea way (I believe) to train soul-winners is one-on-one, but we had 8 that wanted the training. So we had a corporate class and just tried to train them all at one time. We set up the classed so that they ended when daylight savings time begins. This will move the clocks forward one hour and we will have more daylight in the evening for door knocking.
I have a plan for covering the entire area. We will start a Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings door knocking time, going door to door covering all of the Northwest part of Leavenworth. Then move to the next part of town. I am excited to see how God will bless this effort. Along with the Church wide visitation times I will be going out with men in the church during the day time three days a week and my wife and two of the ladies are planning a Tuesday morning Ladies soul-winning time,
On Sunday nights we will pass out a slip to be filled out each week an put in the offering plates that records how many tracts were passed out, how many hours were spent door knocking and how many souls were saved. We will keep track of all our results and be encouraging others to get involved. By the summer we should have 6 or 7 ready to start training others as the Lord brings them to our church.
Pray with me that the Lord will send someone to direct the Soul-winning/Visitation program for the church. Someone with a heart for souls and a teachable spirit that I can train how I want the program set up and run. This person will be key to us being successful in the area of soul-winning, visitation, and door knocking.

I will be praying that the Lord will send the leader you are seeking for. Great organization and planning! I will also pray that God richly blesses your execution phase.

I'll be praying for the church to grow and that the Lord will send someone to train and then teach future soul-winners.

I'll be praying for you and your church. It is great to hear how fired up everyone is and how eager they are to get in the trenches and go to war with the devil. I pray the Lord's will would be upon your community and those going out to fulfill the great commision.
