  12. Mentoring: Come alongside and spiritually encourage and exhort those who visit. Train volunteers to share the hope of the Gospel and God’s plan for believers and non-believers in their responses. 2. Prayer Mentoring. Praying for those in need in local communities, but communicating with the body globally through the web to pray for also. There is power in agreement and in unity. The body moving as one to accomplish all things and resolve all needs, locally and globally. 3. Discussion, directly or in directly through email or messageboards: People want to know why things are happening the way they are and what if anything can be done. People both believers and non-believers not being led by the Spirit have real concerns.

God is moving and we all need to understand what is happening and why…II Chronicles 7:14. • Online Courses: Topical and Bible study courses are designed to address personal and spiritual needs that one can work through at their own pace together with a personal study coach.  The lessons provide opportunity to share prayer requests and personal needs. 6. Chat rooms: Chat rooms on the web and local gathering places are places where people can meet. Counseling centers are a place to share His ways and Covenants offering real solutions for what is happening in the world and in families.

  14. Create lots of opportunities for interactivity • Build the body and each member. The body is only as strong as the weakest member. • Help everyone understand how important they are in God’s plan and that each of us have been called by God to do something in the body. • Help people understand who they are in Christ and Christ both head and body have been given all power in heaven and earth. • Understand that it takes the body moving as one body in love, unity and forgiveness being led by His Spirit. • Accept scripture as the truth. God gave us the five-fold gift ministry so the body will not be tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine so we can do all things through Christ.

  23. Ellie: a chat story She discovered a reason to live: “God has used this chat room in amazing ways. I have been given the privilege of watching people come to the Lord, watch them grow, be part of God's work. My faith has grown so much. The chat room took away my overwhelming sense of loneliness. I don't think about taking my life anymore which brought me here in the first place. I left the path which God intended for me, but He never left.” Ellie

  25. Our Daily Bread, Missions Vision: Reach all in the body globally and encourage everyone to work as one body globally to accomplish His will. Gather all believers and encourage one another in their Holy Calling and purpose and to reach all globally. Pray for one another, walk with each other in love and unity and demonstrate His will as His Royal Priesthood in His ways, Commandments and Covenants to meet the needs of all people. Understand and accept that we all have been called to be leaders and examples and people learn more from us about Christ by what we do, than what we say. Communicate the needs of those God sends you to other parts of the body so all can pray for each one. For each one that God sends to you, tell them to expect a miracle and they will see the hand of God in their lives. Help each find out who they are in Christ, their position and authority and what can be accomplished through Christ if the body works as one body in love and unity.
