Another Milestone in My So-Called Retirement

Working as an Online Missionary for Global Media Outreach!

As many of you know, I have devoted many hours each day of my retirement, since February of 2012, to working as an online missionary for Global Media Outreach. This has been a very rewarding adventure for someone who is physically less than optimum.

In all fairness, I’m doing reasonably well for an 89 year old man and I’m very thankful to the Lord for his grace to me each and every day!

April 25, 2022 Marked a Milestone in my Work as an Online Missionary

Global Media Outreach produces and updates a working home page for the OM’s which provides the elements needed to work with people all over the world. Part of the home page looks like this:

On April 25, 2022, my working home page noted the number of people I have helped as 11,000; this has been done since I first started work as an on line missionary in February of 2012. I was pleased and excited by the opportunity the Lord has given me to serve him in my retirement.

The 11,000 number represents individuals; in some instances, there has been a large volume of correspondence with some of them. I have no idea how many individual letters have gone back and forth but I know that number is vastly larger.

I have mentioned before how I had started my retirement with absolutely no idea of how I would spend my time; well, I didn’t need to worry about getting bored as the Lord had already carefully laid out a plan for me which has far exceeded anything I could have imagined!

This opportunity is open to all born again Christians who seek to serve the Lord and are willing to commit some time to sharing the good news of Jesus Christ! More information is available here where you will find the following word of encouragement:

The opportunity to make a difference is waiting for you if you are willing to accept the challenge!


  1. One of the best uses of technology around, spreading the good news of Jesus Christ

    • It is very gratifying to help people in remote areas of the world that I’ll never see in person. The hunger for God’s word and the good news of Jesus Christ is stirring people all over the world!


  2. David, you’re a treasure! We’re so grateful for your earnest application of your training in our ministry. I wish every Online Missionary dedicated themselves to the kind of in-depth personal care with Contacts that you do.

    Thanks for letting me know you’d made this post! Here’s my blog in return:

    • Hello Mike and thank you for your kind words. I have been richly blessed by the Lord for the opportunity to serve him at my rather advanced age. The Lord is so gracious to his children!
      Your brother in Christ,


  3. It’s arduous to search out educated individuals on this matter, but you sound like you realize what you’re speaking about! Thanks
