The most effective volunteers pray for God‘s blessing and smile as people walk by the kiosk. We train volunteers ho aggressively hand out flyers as people walk by. These flyers are designed to be colorful and attractive. For the young adults and teens we hand out meant4more cards; for the older foils we hand out Billy Graham magazines. We also use Church event flyers such as Kids Cub, or Easter musicals, etc. As the passer-by takes me free hand out, we ask them if they attend Church, or if they would fill in our spiritual survey, or if they would join our free raffle. We are simply trying to initiate a Godly conversation.
If the person stops to talk, we train the volunteer to draw the person to the Evangelism Explosion Booklet on the four Spiritual Laws (in plain English). Volunteers must be encouraged to be positive, even when their message may be rejected. Most people in the mall will not stop to speak with a volunteer. About one in a hundred people will talk with us. About one in five people will take a free flyer as they walk by. But, since there is so much pedestrian traffic in the mall, we still speak with about two thousand people in a month.
