Doing Missions in DAYS

Days on the calendar can create a rhythm in your home and a natural way to gather other families to serve with you. The keys are to:

  1. Only pick one day a month or you will get overwhelmed.
  2. Choose varying topics to cover different issues.
  3. See if there are local events on the day and serve together.
  4. Come up with an event or research, learn, and pray about it!
  5. Choose other days outside this list if an issue suits you better.
