QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Q: How do I sign up?
A: Visit this link: www.glownorthwest.org/million.
Q: What is the cost for this mission trip?
*NOTE: Missionaries are not allowed to pay any costs until they been accepted.
Q: Is there an age requirement?
A: Yes, you must be over 18.
Q: Who will be leading this mission trip?
A: Leaders from the Upper Colombian Conference and the Pacific Northwest.
Q: What kind of outreach will we be doing?
A: During the week we will divide up into teams in minivans. There will be placing of tracts on doors in neighborhoods (note that this is not talking about knocking on doors and talking with people. We aim to get out 1 million tracts and that will take maximum efficiency. If we are close to finishing and have extra time then we can knock doors and get Bible study interests, for now, the tracts will do that for us.). There will be placing of literature on cars in parking lots. There will be distribution of literature in areas of public transportation and on busy streets. The bulk will be parking lots and neighborhoods.
Q: Will we go two by two?
A: Yes. We will be going out in teams of 7 and two on a street across the street from each other in neighborhoods—not two people at each door. Parking lots and other public venues will have us in teams close by each other as well.
Q: Will we be giving literature directly to people?
A: Yes. We will be alternating between placing literature in neighborhoods, parking lots, public transportation venues, crowded downtown streets, and potentially large crowds. Each participant must be willing and able to give literature directly to people even though it might not be for the majority of the time.
Q: Will we be doing anything else like signing people up for Bible studies or praying for people or…?
A: If time permits, yes. Our first and primary goal is to make sure that we distribute all 1 million tracts. This will be our only focus until we know that we have some extra time to slow down. The tracts will enable readers to sign up for studies. Please do not plan on getting into long conversations with people. There is a time for everything, and this time is going to be devoted to reaching as many people as quickly as possible.
Q: How will meals work?
A: The trip organizers/conference will provide two vegan meals a day (breakfast and lunch). We will be running on a two meal a day schedule. A late breakfast will be in the morning and we will have time for a break for lunch in the afternoon. If you need to have more than two meals a day, feel free to bring non-perishable items to snack on or have a light supper with while on the go. Please let us know in advance if you have any special dietary requirements.
Q: Will we do anything illegal or will people get mad at us?
A: No. Everything we do will be protected by our proselytization rights under the first amendment. In fact, each participant will carry paperwork indicating our freedom to proselytize in such a manner.
Q: How will we get from the airport to the place where we are staying?
A: We’ll arrange that on a one by one basis as you figure your arrival times. We will likely be picking you up in the rental vans. Please arrive so that you are at the facilities for our first meeting on Sunday, October 22 through Tuesday, October 31, 2017.
