Being an LE is a very spiritual work. A person who has the following characteristics will be most suited to this work:
1. A love for God
2. A love for people and the desire to see them ready for Jesus’ coming
3. A willingness to work – self-motivated
If you possess these qualities God will bless you abundantly in literature ministry and you will bring many people into a saving relationship with Jesus.
How do you earn an income?
LEs go into a community and offer Christian books and literature for sale. They purchase their stock at a wholesale price and sell at the recommended retail price. Income is gained from the profit margin on the books sold. The more you sell, the more you earn, the more people come in contact with the gospel message. It is a self-supporting missionary work. You are a valued addition to the ministry team of your local church conference.
Are the hours of work flexible?
Yes, you can work full time or part time. You can choose the hours you want to work. It is like running your own business – you are the manager of your time and sales.
What is the product range?
The product range covers over 200 inspiring books and DVDs on a wide range of topics that are relevant to relationshipns, health, spirituality and family.
What response do you get?
When visiting homes you find many interesting people. Most people will treat you with courtesy and kindness. Your attitude and friendliness also plays a part in the response received. Smiling and being friendly always prepares the way for a pleasant visit. If you feel nervous now, do not worry. The free online LE training course has lessons on how to interact with people in a positive way and to share with them your products.
