The Literature Evangelist
As members of God’s Remnant Church we must continue to affirm the value of "bookwork" and rebuild confidence in this vital ministry. In many countries, literature evangelists are the only Adventist missionary group who still knock on doors and visit homes in a systematic way. Although their work hours are long and arduous, and their financial reward is limited, most of them maintain that soul winning is their goal and real reward.
It is vital for all our members to support and believe in literature evangelism because it is an excellent example of global mission. Every time colporteurs enter a home God is using them to tap into an unknown territory. Not only do they sell books to individuals and families, but they pray in homes they visit, seek to register their contacts in correspondence study courses, give Bible studies, bring interested contacts to evangelistic meetings and church services, and lead souls to Jesus and His church.
Colporteurs work in harmony with the pastor and bible instructors to make the church more effective. It will do well for pastors, church leaders and local members to support colporteurs at all levels with the view of making their work more productive.
Below are a few simple ways pastors, church leaders and local members can help to make colporteurs work more effective:
Finally, we can value them because their work is spiritual and God has entrusted them with a sacred responsibility. The books they place in homes have power to direct families to the cross. Furthermore, the fruit of their ministry is perennial. -Pastor Nikita Thompson, Publishing Director
