Did you know that there is a way for you to advocate for missionaries right from your home? Yes, it's true, you can be an advocate! Advocating for native missionaries in the U.S. is one of the most effective ways to gain regular resources for their ministries. There are different levels of advocacy in which you can participate.
"Advocacy is the act of pleading for someone else... defending or standing up for someone else's cause... speaking out for those without a voice...interceding on behalf of another... bridging the gap between the need and the supply...linking hands of hurt with hands of help... connecting servants with sources...love that acts and faith that works... the natural expression of eyes that have seen, ears that have heard, and hearts that have been broken..." Jerry Harding, The Heart of an Advocate
For starters, you can like us on Facebook/follow us on Twitter and tell your friends to do the same. You could share one of our videos from Youtube. You can even invite a native missionary to share at your church or event. If you wanted to get really involved, here is a snapshot of what you might expect as a sold-out ANM advocate:
Host a missionary, no more than twice a year. During their visit, we would ask that you... - Coordinate four events where the missionary can share his/her testimony (i.e. small groups, church meetings, strategic dinners with missions-minded individuals, etc.) - Provide meals and transportation while hosting. - Plan one site-seeing day in the community. - Allow the missionary one full day of rest.
So you see, being an Advocate can be as simple as the click of a button or as exciting as building a long-term friendship with a brother or sister who is serving the Lord. Contact us and learn how you can be an advocate.
