  1. Can you share a testimony of a time when the Holy Spirit anointed you to be bold and fearless and share Jesus with someone? What happened?
  2. What are some of the many areas around you where people need to know Jesus? Have you evangelized in these areas? If not why? What is your plan to reach these areas now?
  3. Can you share an example of a time when you saw a powerful move of the Holy Spirit where many people accepted Jesus as their Savior?
