Sharing the Excitement of Jesus' Love

Info For Adults
 

What Are Kids Doing?

A few years ago, five children from the Zillah, Washington Seventh-day Adventist church decided they wanted to help native evangelists reach people for Jesus in their home countries.  These native evangelists must often walk 10-15 miles to reach a village.  The children decided to raise money to buy bicycles for these workers so that more people could hear about Jesus.  They thought they had set a large goal to raise $1,000.   But God’s plans are always bigger than ours.  By the time they had finished with various fund-raisers, the children had raised $2,100.  Gospel Outreach was able to buy 40 bicycles with this money.  Imagine how many more people will hear about Jesus now that  40 evangelists  have bicycles to help them reach the scattered villages in their homelands.

 


What Can Adults Do?

Parents

Listen to your children’s ideas about missions

Decide on a family savings goal to help Gospel Outreach send native evangelists to unreached areas of the 10/40 window..  $10-$20 a month is a goal many families can easily strive for.

Gospel Outreach Missionary Box (left. more info at the link below)

 

Why not write to GO now and ask for a Missionary Box (will open in a new window).

 

Other fund raising ideas:

With each family saving up their spare change, the offering will add up quickly. Just deposit your coins at your local bank and write a check to GO for the amount.  You can even designate a special project or choose to sponsor a missionary.

  • Have a family yard sale and donate some of the money to Gospel Outreach.

    Teach your children the joy of giving by paying them for odd jobs around the house that they can then give to help spread the news about Jesus to unreached people groups around the world.


    When your family goes out to eat, choose to drink water instead of ordering soft drinks or juice.  Use the money saved to help with missions.

     

 

Sabbath School or School Teachers  

Kids united for mission


Class Mission Project for Gospel Outreach


Each quarter, set up a special mission project for your Sabbath School or class. Get kids involved in learning about the region of the world where your project is located.  Find someone in the community who has some typical clothing from that region of the world or download pictures from the Internet.  Learn about the culture.  What do the people eat?  Download recipes from that culture and have a potluck where everyone contributes with special ingredients and dishes.  Encourage children to engage in special individual savings plans (saving up spare change, donating the money their parents would spend on their lunch snacks for a week, holding a bake sale) in order to raise money for the project.  Have a goal of how much your group will raise and keep track along the way.  Plan an exciting way to donate the money when the goal is reached (write a special letter that all the kids sign to go along with the check; invite someone from the organization to which you are donating to come and address the class and accept the money).

Sponsor a Missionary

You can sponsor a Gospel Outreach evangelist like this man

Gospel Outreach is completely voluntary.  The only money that is used for personnel is the money that goes to the native evangelists working in the field.  Gospel Outreach trains and hires these local evangelists to spread the Gospel message in their own lands and in th

eir own languages.  These local missionaries understand the culture and the people among whom they work.  Currently, Gospel Outreach has 2,600 native missionaries working all across the 10/40 Window in countries like India, China, the Philippines, Myanmar (Burma), and many other lands. 

 Their expenses are small, enabling Gospel Outreach to sponsor more missionaries in more places. The cost to sponsor one of these native missionaries is $150.

 To sponsor a missionary, write or call Gospel Outreach.
