and life you had before. We promise you will be in some shock. Follow the guidelines

MINI-NIGHT OF MISSIONS (evening guide)
When you return home, don’t be shocked if your family and friends aren’t that
interested in all that you experienced in your DTS.
The answer is simple. Have someone you know host a living room gathering at their
house or even yours and invite as many as you desire. As a result, the caring people
attending your meeting will be the ones who share what they heard to others.
