SENDING MATERIAL TO PEOPLE INTERESTED IN REACHING JWS AND LDS:
You support enables us to continue mailing our free English and Spanish information packets to Christians who are reaching out to their Mormon and Jehovah's Witness friends and loved-ones and Ex-Jehovah's Witnesses and Ex-Mormons needing support on their way out.
OVERSEEING ONLINE SUPPORT GROUPS AND PROVIDING PHONE AND EMAIL SUPPORT
We have a team of people (mostly volunteers) who provide email and phone support to people leaving Jehovah's Witnesses or Mormonism. Our online support groups on meetup have over 500+ members, most of who are spiritually searching. Our team oversees the discussion boards and provides one-on-one support over phone or email as needed.
ENHANCEMENT OF TRAINING MATERIALS AND WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT

Ephesians 6:12 emphasizes that "...our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places." In view of this, we have developed an email prayer support team through our website that enables you to submit prayer requests for your Jehovah's Witness and Mormon friends and relatives and to intercede for others who are likewise dealing with the same issues.

Placing ads in your local newspaper, penny-saver, secular and Christian publications are an excellent way to spread the word about our ministry to people needing help in dealing with the Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons. The following are suggestions for effective ads:
Note: For secular publications, it is best to target the Jehovah's Witness or Latter-day Saint (Mormon) audience individually by themselves rather than to try to appeal to both groups in one ad.
For a Secular Publication:
For a Christian Publication:

We have had several requests for material in foreign languages. Most of our materials have been translated into Spanish, but we are looking for unpaid volunteers to translate into other languages. If you or someone you know would be interested in helping us translate our materials for free, please contact us. We need translators who have the ability and the software to type the translated foreign language material directly into MicroSoft Word documents that we can format back into the original tracts / brochure style of the English documents we place on our website.
If you are a former Jehovah's Witness or a former Mormon who has left either of these religions to follow the true Jesus Christ of the Bible and embrace Biblical Christianity, we would welcome your participation in our online support groups hosted by meetup.com. We are looking for Ex-JWs and Ex-LDS who have a sincere desire to help others on their way out of these religions. Our online groups have several hundred members, many of whom are wounded and spiritually searching, open to solid biblical direction that points to Jesus alone for healing, and not to another church or religious organization. Due to the sensitivity of our hurting members, we desire that Biblical truth be shared in a grace-filled, loving and patient way. If this ministry interests you, consider joining our FREE online support groups at:
Ex-Jehovah's Witness Worldwide ONLINE Meetup Support Group (Ex-JW Members only)
Ex-Mormon Worldwide ONLINE Meetup Support Group (Ex-Mormon Members only)
Christian Prayer ONLINE Support Group for Friends of Loved Ones in the JWs and LDS (Christian Members Only - You do not need to be an ExJW or Ex-LDS person, we welcome ANY Christian with a heart to reach out to JWs and LDS)
I LOVE this site!
“I just wanted to write and tell you that your website is absolutely FANTASTIC and invaluable. Thank you so much for providing fantastic resources that true Christians can use to reach out in love to those caught in the lie of Mormonism and the Watchtower Society. I love this website.”
Your site is the best!
“Just want you to know that I love your website. What a wealth of information …I have been looking for a website to aid in my witnessing to my Mormon and Jehovah’s Witness friends. This is the best one I have seen by far. Please keep up the good work!!!!”
Your website is crucial in my witnessing efforts!
“Your website is crucial in my witnessing efforts to Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses. I cannot get the Mormons to come back anymore, but I had my first study with the Jehovah’s Witnesses today. ...One has been in the Society for over 50 years!!! I was very intimidated by this. ...But the thing that really got them squirming in their seats today were the questions I got off your website regarding the use of the Divine Name. It was almost as if they had never heard questions like this before. ...thank you so much for what you do. God has used your talents in such a wonderful way to bring glory and honor to our King Jesus Christ.”
I appreciate the loving tone of your website...
“I need to say thank you so much to the people involved in this website! I am a Christian and have been in contact with a Jehovah's Witness for several months, and at the beginning I was very unfamiliar with Jehovah's Witness teachings. Your website has helped me tremendously. I feel much better acquainted with Jehovah's Witness teachings and able to question her on her beliefs, and point her to the Truth of Jesus in the Bible. I enjoy the thoughtful, loving tone your website has in pointing out the error of the Watchtower organization, and the error of Jehovah's Witness beliefs.”
Thanks for providing the documentation to back up what you're saying.
“I recently became acquainted with a girl who was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness, and I am a solid evangelical Christian. Despite our differences, we have become good friends ...I have had the hardest time talking to her about my concerns regarding the Watchtower because I understood so little about it. In my search for resources online, it is so refreshing to find a website that is not slanderous or based on opinion, but that simply provides the facts. Thanks for providing documentation to back up what you're saying. This is legitimate journalism and it has been incredibly useful to me.”
I Feel So Much Better Equipped!
“I just wanted to say thanks for the tremendous amount of effort it must have taken to put together this website. I am a Christian who has been visited by Jehovah’s Witnesses for about 7-8 years… I was online …when I came across your site. Having found what I was looking for, I continued on with browsing your site. There is so much useful information here! Recently, one of the young Witnesses that had previously come to my door ...came back to my door alone. … After reading many pages on your site, I feel so much better equipped to speak with her. …I hope to show her the joy that is in the freedom we have in Christ.”
