"Do your utmost to present yourself approved to God." (2 Timothy 2:15)
Good preparation will help you to be poised and enthusiastic in the house-to-house ministry. While there is some benefit in silently reviewing what you are going to say, many find it more helpful to rehearse their presentation out loud. Doing so helps them to give their best to Jehovah. (Colossians 3:23) Practical meetings for field service contribute to our effectiveness and joy in the house-to-house ministry. Taking sufficient time to discuss or demonstrate a simple presentation that is well-suited to the territory or to consider other practical information that can be used in the ministry that day will further equip those present to give an effective witness. With good advance preparation, elders and others who conduct these meetings can accomplish this and still conclude the meeting within the allotted time.—Romans 12:8.
