My Wife and I actually tried this one year and it was a great success. We were able to meet as memory serves me, between 10-15 new neighbours who actually did come! This is not the social gospel approach. We merely used this to meet the neighbours.
Now remember, this was a personal work, in the wild west of Alberta! We lived in the heart of a city of 55,000 called Lethbridge, at the time. You cannot convert people who have never met!!!
