Children are natural missionaries, and can sometimes almost effortlessly invite a neighbor, friend, teacher, or coach to hear them speak or sing in church. The Primary Sacrament meeting presentation is a golden opportunity!
The following invitation ideas make it easy. You can give several to each child to give to someone they’d like to invite.The message of the invitation — Jesus Christ, making good choices, families, etc. — is a positive one for nonmembers, whether or not they come to church.
Jen gave an invitation to a playground mom who ended up being baptized! Read about it here. Don’t miss “Be a Missionary Now” in the September 2012 FRIEND, page 10, for other wonderful ideas about children as natural missionaries.
