Esther 4:14—“And who knows whether you have not attained position for such a time as this?”
We are so excited to welcome you as a NEW Evangelist! This is one of the most IMPORTANT facets of being one of His followers!!
Mark 16: 15-16—“And I [Jesus] said to them, "Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel, the Good News, to the whole creation.”
Matthew 28: 18-20—“And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has-been Given to me. Go and make disciples THEREFORE of all nations, teaching them to observe all that I have Commanded you.’”
Matthew 4:18-20 (MSG)—“Walking along the beach of Lake Galilee, Jesus saw two brothers: Simon (later called Peter) and Andrew. They were fishing, throwing their nets into the lake. It was their regular work. Jesus said to them, ‘Come with Me. I’ll make a new kind of fisherman out of you. I’ll show you how to catch men and women instead of perch and bass.’ They didn’t ask questions, but simply dropped their nets and followed.”
So since you answered the Lord, we want to help you know where He is sending you!
Isaiah 6:8—Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
What is an evangelist?
Most of us are familiar with a pastor or preacher, but an evangelist is simply any person who GOD has taken through something difficult in order to help share their journey in order to encourage (or give courage) to other people who are going through something similar. Evangelist who are able to ignite a fire of hope—in order to help others who are in a similar valley, a similar crisis, who have a similar feeling of despair and hopelessness—showing them that holding His hand is the way to escape or at least get through to the other side.
“No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13.
How can you help me become an Evangelist and help women who are crying out for hope in the same or a similar situation He’s helping me come through?
#1 Get Motivated, Stay Inspired
Women just like you are reaching out and are responding to the cries He hears. They simply share praise reports of how the Lord is using them, leading them, to the women who are desperate for hope. Follow Atarah# who has had a passion for ministering to women in her community and is now using her BNN to evangelize and her new Facebook Page to minister to women who are desperate for Hope! BNN-EV#
Follow more inspirational stories Evangelist# Evangelismo# and then be sure to share your own —inspire other women who can ‘Go into all the world and share the Good News to everyone.’” (Mark 16:15 NLT) since it was the last thing He told us to do in order to carry on for Him.
#2 Get Ready, Be Prepared!
We used to encourage women ordering our Hope Cards or print and cut them up to pass out. But now, He's shown us an easier way. When you hear someone speaking about marriage crisis, or what He’s brought you through, just say, “Here, I know something that could help” and then open your phone to show them HopeAtLast.com that you've bookmarked. Better yet, create an app (scroll down to the bottom of the page to see how).
Then, ask them to open their phone and search so you know they have it.
And, if your ministry is geared more towards Finding Love At Last, do the same thing but with LoveAtLast.ORG instead.
#3 Start Your OWN Ministry
If you've been journaling through courses 1, 2 and 3, pouring your heart into them and you've taken the opportunity at the bottom: Please share a short testimony, speaking to Younger Women, who are still Single based on the principle(s) from this chapter. Often what you wished you'd done or hadn't done that would have changed the course of your life had you know about this principle... And you overcame the hurdle by letting go and Fasting Facebook, long enough that you can safely use it again—this time for GOOD. Then you are ready to take the next step. Read how easily Eliza followed the Lord's leading in Seize the Opportunity. BNN-EV#
Eliza followed Veronica who has a huge ministry and even though Eliza found just one woman so far, that's all Erin had when she began her ministry! RMI began when just two women, ePartners began to pray, following the principles (that are now part of your courses) and then encouraged other women they met!
NOTE TOO that God's not asking you to start a ministry from scratch. See what He led Veronica and Eliza to do:
I have not published anything of which I am the author on this page. All that is found there is the message of hope found on the French site and the various links for courses in French. My goal in creating this page was that the people who find it go directly to the website aidemaritale.com. I was not trying to make contact with anyone. I prayed to the Lord to use this page to lead suffering women and men to His truth.
Post the links to everything that's helped you. If you want to, begin to post a lesson a week and then use your journal to share what He showed you. This is how Adele, our French Minister, is building her ministry—by going through Finding the Abundant Life on the French Blog.
So I went back to Facebook, opened a new account and created the page “Dieu peut et restaurera votre mariage”.
To help you discover the name to help you:
Nancy, who is another branch that's come off of Veronica's "Restored by Grace“ felt called to begin her ministry to help women Find Their Abundant Life. What's your passion? Let us help you, fill out our BNN and Your New Ministry Name.
Be sure you've first invested in your ministry by going through our courses and journaling—this is how you will know if He has called you and what direction He's leading you in.
Once we get your request and see you've gotten through a few of your courses, then we will set aside time to help you discover your Ministry and Ministry Name.
#4 GO, Evangelize ONLINE!
If you don't feel ready just yet, or if your passion is more to go looking for women who need help, then going to prayer sites is so easy to do!
Never before has it been possible to GO into ALL the nations been as easy as sitting at your laptop and looking for women who are crying out for help in their marriages. Where you will EASILY find these women is on Prayer Sites!
“Prayer Posting” Websites—
You can find women who are crying out for help by going to any search engine, like Google, you can type in “prayer posting website” and a full list will show up, actually PAGES of sites in two columns!
GO to the Prayer Wall and search "marriage" where you'll find women (or men) who you can pray for and also share HopeAtLast. If someone has already come before you to offer HopeAtLast then confirm this is where you found hope. “Every fact is to be confirmed by the testimony of two or three witnesses.” 2 Corinthians 13:1
Ask Him to lead you to other sites, then share new sites you find in your praise report to encourage fellow brides to join you.
And since women are asking for prayer, you will be their ANSWER to prayer when you SIMPLY copy and post something like this:
HopeAtLast.com is where I found hope for my marriage…. I found hope and peace and so many testimonies of hopeless marriages restored after infidelity and betrayal. Don’t give up or let it consume you. ~ Your BNN “Brand New Name”
PLEASE Be Careful
First, there are women who are very angry and may not be open to wanting help. You want to look for women who are broken, desperate and are interested in help—not a contentious woman who is only there to vent and shame their husbands.
However, if this was where you were when you found RMIEW and you sense this is who He is calling you to minister to, then follow His lead.
Nevertheless, there will be many women, especially contentious women, who may write back wanting to know more, if so, then send them to HopeAtLast.com and let them know they can fill out a Marriage Evaluation Form and get all the necessary resources for FREE.
Nevertheless, we want you to be careful and watch out—if you get pulled into a discussion, you may not give them what they “want” to hear and often it could turn into a form of counseling where they will therefore never meet the Mighty Counselor.
Additionally, we want you to be careful and watch out—if you get pulled into a discussion, you may not give them what they “want” to hear and often it could turn into a form of counseling where they will therefore never meet the Mighty Counselor.
By simply introducing women to His truth, His love and His answers they will meet Him—so please say no more than what we’ve left you to post:
MarriageHelpOnline.com is where I found hope for my marriage…. I found hope and peace and read so many encouraging testimonies of hopeless marriages restored after infidelity and betrayal. Don’t give up or let it consume you! ~ Your BNN “Brand New Name”
- If you don’t have your BNN “Brand New Name” please CLICK HERE to discover the BNN “Brand New Name” He has for you, which is what you will want to use when submitting a Praise Reports and sowing Hope Online.
So if anyone asks for more, simply copy and paste something like this:
I'm so glad you asked, on HopeAtLast.com they offer a FREE Marriage Evaluation that will help answer your question and also gives you free eBooks and videos to watch… if you’d like I can send you Chapter 1 of the book that will give you so much hope! ~ Your BNN
Unfortunately, most women who fill out the Marriage Evaluation just want to vent their anger or talk about their problems but never discover anything that will really help them. So again, be sure to send them to HopeAtLast.com so they can fill out a Marriage Evaluation Form to be given the Free resources (simply copy and paste the statement above).
We also want you to be careful how much you READ in each post. Sadly some women share things that should never be shared with anyone, so just skim over the posts, and ask the Lord to lead you to whom He wants to reach out and help. If you read only far enough to see they need Marriage Help and then stop reading then post your reply, you'll protect your mind and heart from details that can interfere with your own restoration.
** When you do see a post from a man, be extra careful that you do NOT post your name and that the site does NOT include your email address. “Be of sober [clear thinking] spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5:8.
Why a BNN “Brand New Name”?
Using your BNN allows you to turn your focus from yourself, and onto others. So, as an Evangelist, you’ve traveled far enough along your Restoration Journey to the point that you’ve been spiritually healed, sufficiently trained and now your purpose and call on your life are to help other women, rather than yourself.
Gone will be the days when you used to brag or envy or talk about nonsense, instead, having a BNN will help you post Prayer and help you minister to other women. However, this must be done, discreetly, by using a BNN, as a new wiser woman!
Just as God changed Sarai to Sarah, Abram to Abraham, Simon to Peter, you too will be given a new name that will allow you to be transparent and real, without bringing shame to your family or attention on yourself.
Would finding a name help you start your ministry? Often Erin says He helps give her the name of books, not just for herself, but like she did for Michele, like Poverty Mentality or Moving Mountains. Even How God Can and Will Restore Your Marriage which is what she would say when she met women—was given to her long before He restored her marriage!
It could be just a single word based on a special bible verse, such as our first missions, Caritas Radiantes. The name translates to "Radiant Little Faces" based on Psalm 34:4-5 ESV, “I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.”
Or, it could be based on your RESTORED Marriage Testimony like Veronica's ministry and testimony "Restored by Grace" when she started a FaceBook group, yes, using a BNN. 🙂
Have You Already Started Helping Women?
If you’ve been submitting praise reports, praise when overcoming hurdles (even hurdles not yet listed), or your restored marriage testimony and it’s been used in our Encourager blog, then you can share your unique tag that allows women to hear your testimony!
As an example, here is a tag for one of our translators, Poppy, who has been ministering to other women. When she gives a woman one of our Hope Cards: HopeAtLast.org or a LoveAtLast.org Hope Card, she writes this on the back.
How and WHEN to use your new BNN
- When you post a prayer on prayer sites.
- When you submit a Praise Report regarding your evangelism fruits—in order to encourage other women to join and become an Evangelist.
- Whenever He leads you to use it.
Philippians 2:3-4—"Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.”
TLB—“Don’t be selfish; don’t live to make a good impression on others. Be humble, thinking of others more than yourself.”
VC—“Don’t let selfishness and prideful agendas take over. Embrace true humility, and lift your heads to extend love to others.”
Question and Answers
If you run into someone who tries to argue or dispute anything, remember to remain silent.
Proverbs 26:20—“For lack of wood the fire goes out, and where there is no whisperer, contention quiets down.”
Matthew 10: 14 NASB—“Whoever does not receive you, nor heed your words, as you go out of that house or city, shake the dust off your feet.”
Simply say nothing, just walk away just as Jesus explains in Matthew 10:14 by going to a new Prayer Site.
Matthew 11:30—“For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.”
2 Timothy 2:14 GW—“Remind believers about these things, and warn them in the sight of God not to quarrel over words. Quarreling doesn’t do any good but only destroys those who are listening.”
