What method of evangelism did you use and how did you start the conversation? What method did you use? Why did you choose to use that method? How did you start the conversation?

The friendship method of evangelism comes naturally, as it can be integrated with daily life in ways that other methods cannot. Using the friendship method also allows me to get to know the other person: what makes them "tick." Knowing this, I can approach spiritual matters in a way that is meaningful to them.

I become the vessel for Christ's will. With a friend, I can bring up the subject in different ways and in different times. Moreover, I can invite my friend to attend Christian events so that he can meet others who will share the gospel in their own way. This will expose him to different methods of seeing and coming to God.

Considering it was the first time that I brought up the subject of my spiritual life with this particular friend, he reacted well. I did not know what to expect. He seemed genuinely curious when I told him about all the amazing changes that have occurred….....
