How to be a Good News Missionary
A few suggestions
Join us (or become more involved) in the apostleship of the mission of Good News Ministries. You can be a Good News Missionary, serving the Lord with us, changing the world one soul at a time. Here are some ideas on how to do it, but of course you’re not limited to these.
Remember, most people do nothing to spread the Good News. Most people tell no one about the things they find that are helpful. A few people tell a friend or two. But some people tell everyone — and they do it with authority, with genuine interest for others, and with persistence. Please be one of the few who care enough to make a difference.
Thank you for your partnership!
- Make a list of people you know whom you’d like to see grow closer to Christ: List friends, family, coworkers, members of clubs you belong to, parish leaders and administrators, etc. GO TO http://gogoodnews.net/all-elists/ and sign them up for the Good News Reflections. This will send them an invitation that gives them the opportunity to subscribe or not.
- Use the same list to send personal emails recommending the gnm.org website for faith growth and inspiration, and the marriagevocation.net site for marriage support.
- Run a prayer campaign for them. How? Pray for them daily, fast for them, and ask the Holy Spirit to open opportunities for them to discover GNM. Include angels in your prayer campaign. Ask your Guardian Angel to speak to their Guardian Angels about nudging them toward this discovery.
- Frequently share the webpage http://gnm.org/good-news-reflections/ on Facebook and the other social sites you belong to.
- When viewing a Good New Reflection in your phone, long-press on its photo-quote to save a copy of the image. Then share it via your phone, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.
- Think of someone who’s suffering and recently mentioned it to you. Look through the Good News WordBytes (our online magazine of faith-building articles) and find one that will minister to him/her, then provide the link by email or text message.
- Once a week, find a Good News WordByte that ministers to you, and share it on Facebook and the other social sites you belong to.
- Send me your story about how the Lord has ministered to you through Good News Ministries. We’ll share it with others in our weekend newsletter Insider’s View or our website or Annual Report or other communication opportunities.
- Talk to your Pastor and Director of Religious Education or the leaders of organizations you belong to about hosting a Good News Ministries event (a parish mission, retreat, or seminar). Download our brochure; print it, fold it, and hand it to them. Tell them why you believe it would help the parish. Mention that the cost need not be a deterrent, because it’s flexible and, if necessary, we’ll find sponsors to help cover expenses.
