In an effort to help interested clusters that are at the point of reaching out in their home visits to invite the general public to their core activities, Vahid Hedayati conducts weekend “Reaching and Teaching Seminars” to bring all the efforts to focus on sustained teaching campaign projects.  He designed a “Gift and Invitation Card” that can be used as a “golden key”  to open the door for the friends to reach the masses, when it is taken personally by the friends to the people in their neighborhoods, as a gift of prayers and  prophecy of Isaiah, and an invitation to the core activities.
