WITNESSING FOR CHRIST---THE FIVE T'S

helpful. In the training of telephone operators, the
tone of voice is to be pleasant and attractive to
people. We cannot speak to people in harsh tones and
expect to win them. It just doesn't work that way.
Recently in teaching a soul-winning class I mentioned

difficulties. I must be more watchful of my tone of
