The New Testament provides a method for spreading the gospel, which will also restore Tens and Hundreds to our community. Luke 10 describes how church and gospel spread in five important steps. A pair of Christians move to a new neighbourhood.

After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place (Luke 10:1).Finding an appropriate neighbourhood was really important. Christians should make their home in the new location.
Whatever town or village you enter, search for some worthy person there and stay at his house until you leave (Matt 10:11).Staying with the Person of Peace would not be possible in a Western culture, so the Christian pair would buy or rent a house as close as possible to that person.
When you enter a town and are welcomed, eat what is set before you. Heal the sick who are there and tell them, 'The kingdom of God is near you' (Luke 10:8,9).A healing will usually crack open the neighbourhood. When Paul prayed for Publius’ sick father and he was healed (Acts 28:8-10). All the people on Malta came and were healed (many would believe).
