Talking to non believers about Christ can be both spiritaul and physical events. If you want to talk to non believers about Christ, you should first of all pray about it asking God to help to say the right things.
Dont condemn them or condemn their sins straightaway. Take your time and share a practical story of yourself or any other you know who did not really had a good time practicing the sins they practiced. Be subtle about this but try to tell the story. It will be good if it's a story they can confirm.

Dont go into unnecessary argument with them. Learn how to withdraw when argument is heating up so that you can maintain the counselling friendship and you can always come back to them.

Pray for them

Witnessing must be led of the Holy Spirit. Men trying witness or push Jesus on others will fail. Only by the anointing of the Holy Spirit can a lasting impression be made on unbelievers. Before I was arrested by Jesus and convicted of my sins church people would come to visit from time to time to ask me to come to church. No sincere words about God's love for me or Jesus' sacrifice. Many times I want to witness but my mouth is kept shut. Without the anointing you are spinning your spiritual tires.

"some were sent and some just went".

Ezekiel 3:26-27 KJVS
And I will make thy tongue cleave to the roof of thy mouth, that thou shalt be dumb, and shalt not be to them a reprover: for they are a rebellious house.

I used to pick up hitchhikers as God led me and some of them I hit to witness to and others I didn't. I drive along praying in the spirit under my breath and waiting for the anointing to fall. When it did they certainly listened. I remember one fellow saying after the Lord finished speaking through me "where did you learn to talk like that "? I knew he'd heard from God.
Pray for God to pour out His spirit on you and give yoh His words. Remember Jesus told us to settle it in our hearts not to consider beforehand what we were to witness. The Holy Spirit is our guide in all things. Not our own ideas or some kind of plan. As many as are led by the spirit these are the sons of God.

He is the one to loosen our tongues. Him alone.
[27] But when I speak with thee, I will open thy mouth, and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God ; He that heareth, let him hear; and he that forbeareth, let him forbear: for they are a rebellious house.
