You are not a missionary but you know and pray for missionary families. Maybe you are passionate about meeting the needs of orphans or getting God’s word into the hands of those who don’t have access to a bible. How can you share your passion and motivate others to be a part of God’s work in your community and around the world?
*Hold a monthly Missions dinner for a different country. Our church here in South Africa does this. Each month a different small group chooses a country in the 10/40 window. All month the church prays for this country. A dinner is served that reflects the food of that country. A short presentation is given on the spiritual state of the country or even better we Skyped with a missionary family from that country and were able to ask them questions. Donations for the meal are accepted and goes to missions.
*Become a blogger. Write about your passion for a cause through blogging.
*Use your crafting skills. Do you paint? Knit? Make jewelry? Use your skills to earn money for a missionary family or cause. If a 12 year old can do this, so can you!
*Organize an afternoon to make cards for missionary families. Set aside a time of pray for them. Share verses and encouragement then send the cards out. Emails are wonderful but so are getting those cards through snail mail.
You may not be able to go but God can still use you for growing His kingdom. Take up the challenge He places on your heart and help change the world all for His glory.
I would love to hear your ideas. How do you share your passion for missions/causes with others?
