Over the last few months, I have been trying to mentor someone I met at work. Mainly because when I told him I was a Christian, over time he came to me and said (in his words) I need to get right with Jesus.
So far we have gone for coffee once and talked about salvation and I even gave him a pamphlet written by Pilgrim on salvation. He also went to Church with me once last month. He has started to listen to a Bible app. And on occasion, he asks me Bible related questions via text.
I have been encouraged by some of his progress; yet I am concerned in other points. One is that on a few occasions now, a day before I was supposed pick him up to take him to Church, he said a family matter came up and he cant make it.
As I was praying and thinking about this, what came to mind is an audio sermon on the importance of the Church. He seems to like audio more than reading.
Does anything come to mind, as you think about this?

The New Testament on cd? Maybe something like that would work for him. Some people are not readers but they will watch videos or listen to cds.

As I already said:
Quote
He has started to listen to a Bible app.

So that is not the problem.
Just so you know, I ended up writing my own article to him about the importance of the Church. He was quite responsive to it, however he says because he is in the process of moving and has some family issues; he is too busy to go to Church. Perhaps after his move when things slow down he can make it back to Church.

Please be in prayer for Ryan.

Will do brother. I pray that God will use you to influence him to see the importance of the church.
