This is a series looking into scripture at individuals who after they met Jesus went into their community and shared with others the story of their life. They told about their life before Jesus, when they met Jesus, and how their life was changed after meeting Jesus. We will also look at some modern day examples of people telling their story and talk about how to go about sharing our story.
