What is practical evangelism?

​  It’s personal ministry through direct contact. God brings men into touch with those whom they seek to benefit.  Sometimes it’s verbal communication—Philip and Peter spoke the gospel to the Ethiopian and the Centurion.  On other occasions the practical approach was used:  the Good Samaritan, Dorcas, the maiden in Naaman’s home, blind Bartimaeus, the hungry 5000. In each case sewing, cooking, cleaning, gardening, building, and other practical skills were used in the service of Christ–these constitutes practical evangelism.  “To reach the people, wherever they are, and whatever their position or condition, and to help them in every way possible –this is true ministry.”— Ministry Of Healing p. 156
