TEN STEPS to help you make an intelligent decision regarding your role in missions
1. LISTEN TO MISSIONS SPEAKERS
Get as much input as you can from a variety of missionary speakers.
2. TALK TO YOUR PASTOR
Ask how you can get involved in missions in your local church. Ask if you can help with outreach.
3. WITNESS RIGHT NOW
In fact, get some evangelism training that will help you where you are right now.
4. WRITE TO MISSIONS BOARDS
Ask about opportunities for short-term service. Ask about requirements. Write ACTION! We’ll help!
5. WRITE TO MISSIONARIES
Start corresponding with several missionaries that you know. Ask questions!
6. MAKE FRIENDS WITH INTERNATIONALS
Find some foreign students or new immigrants and help them in their adjustment. You will learn a great deal.
7. READ MISSIONS BOOKS
Check your church library for mission biographies and current, thought-provoking missions literature.
8. PRAY FOR PEOPLE
Pray for non-Christian family/friends. Pray for specific missionaries. ACTION can provide a monthly prayer guide you would enjoy using.
9. STUDY GOD’S WORD
Learn the Scripture so you can share it.
10. LIVE A LIFE OF HOLINESS
Don’t wait till you become a missionary to live the Christian life. You will never make it if you don’t start practicing obedience to God now.
