Marie, the Shy Soul Winner

Marie is a mature lady, probably in her early 60’s. She has been a Christian for many years and has served the Lord faithfully. Church secretary, Sunday School teacher (for very young children), and a blessing to her friends and family, but had never won a person to the Lord.
The one thing that kept her from being a witness for Christ is that she Is painfully shy.
Staff from SOS Events came to her church to teach soul winning and to witness at a county fair.
The Pastor asked for volunteers to go to the training and sign up for a shift at the fair.
Marie wanted to do as the Pastor asked but she could never talk to strangers, she thought.
She did follow though, however, and her turn came to work in the booth at the fair.
The SOS trainer sat beside her and 2 young girls were brought to the table.
Marie would say, “what do I say now?” And the trainer would guide her through each step to led those girls to JESUS.
Both girls prayed and invited JESUS to be their Savior.
Marie was so excited. She needed a little more instruction but before her shift was over she had led several more people to Christ.
On the following Sunday, the Pastor asked for testimonies from the people who had worked at the fair. He said, “I will not ask Marie because I know she is to shy to come up and speak before the congregation.”
Marie spoke up, came up and gave a glowing testimony of how she was changed from being to shy to witness into a bold soul winner for Christ.
Soul winning not only changes the new converts life, it changes the person who is witnessing life.
Many Christians like Marie are to shy or afraid to witness for Christ. If you are one of them, SOS Events ministry can help through training, prayer and the Holy Sprit’s power. You too can become a bold witness for Christ.

Acts 4:31
And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.
