- park in the Mosque's parking lot.
- enter the Mosque property, unless you are invited in by the Imam and you have spoken to your team leader.
- pass out tracts within the festival or Mosque grounds, even if you have been asked for a tract by someone.
- put fliers or materials on car windshields located in any private parking lots.
- give your home church’s name to anyone during the outreach. If someone asks, say you are individuals from many different churches who are there to share the love of Christ with him or her.
- answer any questions from Muslim officials or law enforcement officers, rather refer them to your team leader or give them the M2M office phone (714) 533.6659.
- get caught up in endless discussions that do not lead to Jesus.
- answer in an argumentative manner.
- leave your team without first clearing your request with your team leader.
- be ready to give an answer for the hope that lies within with meekness and humility (I Peter 3:15).
- pray for the Muslims before and after each outreach.
- show God’s love no matter what is happening.
- have discernment.
- expect persecution for sharing Christ with Muslims (Mark 8:34). Because our nation is moving further from our Christian heritage, persecution may come from Muslims, as well as from law enforcement officers.
- pass out tracts only while standing on the sidewalk.
- always have at least one team member with you while ministering.
- try to share only with your same gender. Men should always minister to men and women to women. There are rare exceptions.
- quickly come to the aid of our sisters when heated discussions begin. (i.e. if a Muslim man is saying derogatory things to a woman teammate, come and stand with her and take over the conversation. Sisters leave the discussion at this time).
- be within eyesight of your team and team leader. Always look out for each other.
- If a law enforcement officer asks you to stop:
2. obey the orders if he or she wishes you to stop.
3. ask for a business card, badge number, and telephone number. M2M will contact them if your First Amendment rights were violated.
