You’ve asked some good questions about being an online volunteer M*ss*ionary.  I’ll try to answer them:

————————–

They come from all over the world…amazing!  Isn’t it?

Were you nervous at first?  Yes.  I was so nervous that I do something to mess up.  I didn’t.  And the staff is great at encouraging.  It is one of the most fulfilling parts of my day.   

When:  Anytime.  It is my “coffee time” most mornings or my bedtime wind-down time.  I count it as part of my time with Jesus as I minister to and pray for others around the world with needs, questions, and concerns.  As I talk with them, I review scriptures to send to them, applying them to people’s daily situations.  Some respond, others do not. 

Time:  I’d say I generally answer an average of 10 per day, in about 10-20 minutes.  But, you can give whatever time you think you can consistently give.   

How do you know what to say?  There are pre-form letters that come up for each person which you can modify to make it easy to get started.  I use them often.  or if I’m short on time. 

Who writes in?  All kinds of people. 

What if I can’t answer a questions?  There is a “reassign” button.  

Do you get to win people to Christ?  Yes.  I’ve even led several people to Christ on-line this year, a great experience.  Others are follow-ups to sites like www.4stepstoGod.com who’ve already made decisions by reading scriptures on-line and need to know how to live a full life in Christ to protect them from other teachings!

Do people across the world have computer access?  Many do at the schools or workplaces, or pay for computer time.   We are now also getting the gospel message to people by cell phone, responding by computer.

How long have you volunteered?  About two years.

Are there language internationally?  Many people around the world who use the net know English!  Very cool.  

How do you deal with other faiths?  Answering them kindly, with truth and grace is better than fears of doing it wrong and not sharing Christ at all. 

What do you do with questions you can’t answer?  Seasoned volunteers are always available.

What if I need to be away from the computer?  Take breaks!  Your assignments can be re-assigned…but, I have answered emails on vacation…I love it that much.  It’s refreshing to see people seeking Christ.  Personally, I also don’t like to lose long relationships with people while I’m away…often they are at “critical points”, and I enjoy continuing to finish out what was started.

Who are community leaders?  They are all great to work with.  They answer any questions, send you emails and tips, encourage you in your own faith-walk, and visit the boards/forum to help answer questions.  They make sure all is well with your group, and provide a level of oversight to make sure people are getting Bible-based advise and counsel. 

Can you be my community leader?  It’s possible right now.  I’m working on my first group now–sign up before I get too full. 

Do you receive training?  Yes, initial and on-going by on-line videos, web conferences, and emails.  But, it’s not time consuming.  It’s efficient and to the point for when you have time.

Culture/differences:  You are more alike than different if you both use the web.  And, there are always training and tips to help you improve.

Email me or comment if you have other questions or are interested in trying it!  It’s free evangelism opportunities.  How can a person resist? 

If you want to try it on your own, here’s the link:  (you’ll need a good reference to sign up):  Becoming an email volunteer.  There are many who need Jesus…we need your skills and gifts!

ME: “MAGGIE”

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.

Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)

Please know that I am not posting as an expert, but as a fellow traveler. I recommend that you research and double check things on your own before taking any advice or instruction from this site.  Information is given in good faith for the time period in which it was written. I am also an affiliate of the Sure Cuts A Lot software, for Cricut, which means you don't need Cricut cartridges to cut any font or .jpg on your computer.  I get some pocket change for introducing you if you choose to buy it by clicking on my site.  And we all know I need more cardstock, so I do appreciate it.  I sometimes review other products for a fee, but I am not required to give a positive review, and post honestly as to my experience.  I hope you find this useful.
