Overview

Member missionary work often seems intimidating and difficult, but it doesn’t have to be! When Clayton Christensen and his wife, Christine, were newly married, they wanted to be diligent member missionaries. Using a twelve-step process, they created a list of people to prepare for the missionary lessons. However, at one step or another, each person declined. Clayton set out with friends and family members to find a more effective approach. Their refreshing new ways to think about member missionary work are presented in this volume, which includes inspiring, un- usual stories that demonstrate the effectiveness of the ideas. You’ll learn how to initiate conversations about the gospel, how to make sharing your testimony a natural part of your interactions with others, and how to help people grow in their commitment. Along the way, you’ll feel the deep joy that comes from sharing the most precious blessing in the world: the gospel of Jesus Christ.

I found this book exhilarating in the way the author presented the topic. He certainly makes it seem easy to be a missionary. I was grateful that some of the "old" ideas of being a missionary were addressed and "put to rest", such as befriending then letting go if someone is not interested. Great read!
