SOS Ministries - Free Street Witnessing Book

You Shall Be My Witnessess; How to Reach Your City for Christ

by Larry Rosenbaum

You Shall Be My Witnesses - RosenbaumJesus said, "On this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it."
The picture is not one of the gates of hell attacking the church, but of a victorious church storming the gates of hell and rescuing those held captive inside them. God wants to use ordinary people like you and me to change our communities. He wants to make us bold witnesses for Him. This book is a practical guide to how you can join with other Christians to change your community for Jesus in these last days. It is also the story of what God has done in San Francisco and other cities through Christians who have said, "Lord, use me."

* Note for Internet edition: I wrote this book in 1986. I printed 5000 copies. All but 200 have been sold or given away. In time, I hope to do a complete update. Meanwhile, many of the ministry addresses have changed. Also, many street ministries that were operating in 1986 no longer exist. Also, the International Street Ministries Association no longer exists.

Let me know if you need to reach a person or ministry mentioned in this book and I'll try to get you a current address or phone number.
