Tell others about Jesus like Oswald did:

Though not all Christians are called to the ministry of an Evangelist, 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 King Went with the Missionary Celtic Monk Aidan, as Interpreter to Lead His People to the Lord

Actor Robert Duncan tells the story of the remarkable King Oswald.  The son of the King of Northumbria, he was forced into exile when his father's throne was seized.  

He became a Christian under the monks on the island of Iona.  He returned to claim his kingdom at the Battle of Heavenfield near Hexham.  

Now a convinced Christian, he determined that his people should be converted and called Aidan from Iona to found a mission on Lindisfarne, which became a powerhouse of evangelism.  Here is his fascinating story from the historic locations.   _________________________________
