3. Don't peek in the windows before you knock on the door.
4. Stop clowning around before you get to the next person.

6. Speak to people before you start with the plan of salvation.
7. Make eye contact when you are speaking to someone.
8. Knock on doors loudly but don't over knock.
9. Don't knock on doors when the lights are out in the house.

Prov. 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.

These are very good for anyone that is going to go soul winning. THe key I believe is to win the person to yourselve instead of presenting the gospel to someone that you don't even know. I appreciate these hints on soulwinning Bro Jim.

Sis. Julie and Bro. Tim,

Sometimes, we load ourselves up with the Word of God and our techniques for sharing the Gospel; but our own actions while going from door to door make our words and presentation shallow and we are powerless!!! Appearences and first impressions do count!!! I was glad to share some of these practical suggestions....
