If you do not have a specific plan how to present to your family and friends the plan of salvation, consider using “The 5 Basic John Studies. Or if you like another plan such as “The 4 Spiritual Laws”, or some other tool that will help you explain your new faith. If you need a new set of John Studies, please request them.
