The Soul Winner's Compensation

During our weekly outreach program at our church, a brief devotional is given by one of the members of the church staff using a one-page newsletter entitled "Go Ye." It is a brief study tool to encourage and help the soul winner. I thought I would share with you one of the "Go Ye" newsletters.
