I am very thankful for all the Lord did to help me get this issue together on time! June has been an extremely busy month for us, with lots of company and several trips, yet Lord willing this issue shall still be mailed out on schedule. :-) The topic this time is very challenging to me, and I hope everyone else will also be blessed by it.

Online Resources
I've added one article to this website which complements this issue's theme -- please be sure to check it out!
Leading Souls to Christ
This article gives practical tips and lists of Scriptures to use when sharing the gospel.

I also found several excellent articles on other websites that I thought you would be blessed by. Please keep in mind that I do not necessary agree with every point made in every article listed here (much less agree with other articles that are included on each of these websites!), but I have included each of these articles because they are thought-provoking and they motivated me to check out the Scriptures for my own. I pray you'll be motivated to do the same!
