Practice Sharing Your Personal Testimony

Darrell W. Robinson, People Sharing Jesus, (Nashville, TN: Thomas Nelson Publishers, 1995), pp. 203-207

Write out your testimony, using the three-point outline. Practice reading it aloud several times. Ask a person you know to allow you to share it with him or her. Ask God to guide you to a person with whom you can share. Introduce your testimony by saying, "May I share with you the most wonderful thing that ever happened to me? It changed my life!" In concluding your testimony, ask, "Has this kind of experience happened to you?"
