Meanwhile, a number of evangelism activities for the rest of the year 2019 are in place to strengthen and encourage the implementation of the Integrated Evangelism Lifestyle (IEL) and live up its mission to “make disciples of Jesus Christ who live as His loving witnesses and proclaim to all people the everlasting gospel of the Three Angels’ Messages in preparation for His soon return (Matt 28:18-20, Acts 1:8, Rev 14:6-12)”.
