It’s been a while since we featured an interview on Clothed In Scarlet, so here it is! I had a wonderful time chatting with my dear friend, Rosilind Jukic from Croatia.
It’s been just about 7 months since Rosilind launched her website, Missional Call, and it’s already become a raving success. In fact, quite a few of her articles have been syndicated by the well-acclaimed SpiritLed Woman eMagazine. Rosilind and I chatted about her blogging journey, her latest eBook, and future plans for her missionary website.
You can view my interview with Rosilind Jukic below:
Rosilind recently launched her latest eBook, The Missional Handbook – a guide to prepare Christians for local and world missions.
The Missional Handbook basically surmises that every believer is a missionary where they are planted, but need not be limited by their physical location. As an American, settled as a missionary in Croatia, Rosilind knows the ins and outs of missionary life in a foreign culture. And as a blogger, she uses the internet as a mission field to reach out to the nations with the love of Christ. She has compiled her best knowledge, combined with those of other experienced missionaries to publish this eBook.
The Missional Handbook covers some basics such as:
- How we need to approach missions in the modern era
- How we can be directly involved in global missions right from our living rooms
- How we can reach the nations without ever leaving our homes
The eBook shares a revolutionary approach to missions in this day and age, challenging readers to look at it from a new perspective. It also includes information on how to practically implement this modern missional approach, how to prepare for the mission field and different ways to support other missionaries abroad. To top it all, The Missional Handbook also has a Q & A segment and a bonus section with tips from missionaries and stories from local, global and uncommon missionaries.
What stood out for me as I read The Missional Handbook was this: we don’t have to pack our bags and leave the country in order to do missionary work. We can be missionaries right in our own backyards. There are people in our own localities who have not heard about the love of God. We just need to be willing to put aside our inhibitions, reach out and share the love of Christ with them.
Here are some of my favorite quotes from the eBook:
If your heart is beating, you are called to be a missionary.
You can be a missionary right on your own street.
I especially loved how Rosilind built up the buzz around her eBook just before its launch using freebies, inspirational quotes and relevant graphics. She followed a lot of the tips I share in my eCourse, 4 Weeks to Sell Your First Product Online. As we discussed in the video, launching an eBook takes a lot of planning and hard work, but the fruit of your labor is sweet and well worth it!
