They say you can tell a lot about a person by the people they surround themselves with!
Perhaps in our online world… another version could be, “You can tell a lot about a person by the people / things they connect themselves to.” As we have gotten and continue to get closer to being on the field, I find myself wanting some new connections in addition to the ones I already have.

Interested in Missions?
I recently read a great article by Rev. Mark Hattabaugh (@HappyHattabaugh) in a recent Pentecostal Herald article entitled The Power of Exposure. In it, there is a zinger of a quote (among many):
“You get a burden the same way you get the measles… by being exposed!”
If you’re at all interested in missions – whether in North America or around the world – begin to tap into folks who are already involved in missions. A great way to do that is through twitter.
- You’ll hear reports of things happening (baptisms, bible studies, Holy Ghost infillings, miracles)
- You’ll come across links to articles on missions
- You’ll begin to become aware of key players that are involved
Don’t see someone listed above for an area that you’re interested in?
- Go to GlobalMissions.com / Missionaries / Missionary Directory
- Click on the country or region that you’re interested in to find the missionary involved
- Search for them using Twitter’s search feature in the top bar.
It’s one small way… but it’s a start if you’re not already connected to the world of Global Missions.
Go ahead, I challenge you. Find and connect with two new Missions tweeps today.
