TAILS. Yoido Pastor Yongii Cho: You know, we don’t do evangelism in Korea the way you do it in the West . . . We have 50,000 cell groups and each group will love two people to Christ within the next year. They select someone who’s not a Christian, whom they can pray for, love and serve. They bring meals, help sweep out the person’s store— whatever it takes to show they really care for them. When a person asks, “Why are you treating me so well?” our people answer, “Jesus told us that we’re supposed to do good to all men, and we want you to know that we love you, and so does Jesus.” After three or four months of such love, the hardest soul softens up and surrenders to Christ.[1]
