Session 3: Giving Bible Studies (Part 2)

GIVING BIBLE STUDIES (PART 2)

 

Preparation

In preparation for this week’s D-Group:
Memorize and Meditate on Matthew 9:35-38
Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”

Continue to pray every single day for God to show you who to give Bible Study or invite to join a D-Group. Plan for a few days where you pray with your partner.
