REACHING THE LOST – STRATEGIES FOR SUCCESS
Never Go Empty-Handed
Written by Rob L. Whitacre
Kindness and love are how Jesus opened the hearts of men and women. It is hard to be angry when someone gives you a gift. Prospecting is the second step in our HTHSOE model.

When you make a visit (Mission Monday/Transition Thursday), never go to the door empty-handed. Here are a few suggestions:

Before you proposed to your wife, you spent time (and money) winning her heart. You gave her gifts, spent time together, listened to her, and learned more about one another.
