The Evangelism workshops on personal witnessing have been used of God to
plant new missions in Nicaragua over the past three years. We have presented
65 conferences in different locations in Northern Nicaragua. They have been
so well received that pastors and church leaders look for opportunities to
take a "refresher" course on evangelism with us. We can only praise the Lord
for the opportunity to serve Him. We are thankful that the emphasis on
evangelism has met a need in the churches, and they have caught the vision
of starting new missions.

In September 2011, Wil conducted workshops in Jalapa, Pueblo Nuevo, La
Libertad Chontales, and La Concepcion, Nicaragua. Each of these locations
was well attended and people came to a saving relationship with Christ as a
result of participants going door-to-door witnessing. We go to small rural
communities as well as larger well developed cites.

with the need for evangelism, personal preparation for witnessing, a clear
presentation of the plan of salvation using John 3:16 and the Roman Road.
The participants are taught how to mark their New Testament or Bible with
the plan of salvation. A demonstration is given in front of the class and
then the class is broken up into groups of three and each person has an
opportunity to practice witnessing to another person. During the three and
five day workshops the class goes into the neighboring community several
times putting into practice what they are learning. The course also includes
characteristics of the false gospels, cults, Mormons, Jehovah's False
Witnesses, and basic materials on helping new believers get started in
living the Christian life.
