Tell others about Jesus like Wilfred Grenfell did:

 Though we are not all called to the ministry of a Pastor or Christian Writer, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). ____________

"The icy Arctic cold stabbed at Wilfred's fingers and toes.  A howling wind was pushing the ice pan he was stranded out to sea--and with it hope of rescue.  His clothes, soaked when his dogsled fell through the ice, were now frozen.  Lying near his sled dog for warmth, Wilfred fought off sleep, knowing he might never wake up.

...the wild, remote Labrador coast.

Adventurous Wilfred Grenfell was no stranger to danger.  As a new Christian, this English doctor ministered to fishermen on the deadly North Sea.  And when he heard about the appalling poverty and injustice across the ocean in Newfoundland, he went to work among the desperately poor fishing communities of the wild, remote Labrador coast.

...life-saving hospitals, schools, orphanages, and fishermen's co-ops...

There Dr. Grenfell pioneered life-saving hospitals, schools, orphanages, and fishermen's co-ops as he shared the hope of the gospel with people whose lives had offered only despair.  For good reason, everyone from heads of state to destitute children revered Sir Wilfred Grenfell for his kindness and courage. ________________________
