Episode 35: Lion Mode Canvassing 5 – Dealing with Rejection
Let’s face it; we all struggle to some degree with rejection. Some of us are born into families where love and acceptance abounds, while others are born into very cold and abusive families. We carry that baggage with us into canvassing and it certainly can affect how we deal with rejection on the field. Today’s guest Aaron Sotelo from Texas Youth Rush shares his story on how God helped him overcome rejection. Joshua Reyna, the assistant Youth Rush director for the Texas conference joins us as well.

Quotes from Colporteur Ministry to help deal with rejection:
Our heavenly Father has a thousand ways to provide for us of which we know nothing. Those who accept the one principle of making the service of God supreme, will find perplexities vanish, and a plain path before their feet.—The Ministry of Healing, 481 (1905). CM 114.1
When there is a continual reliance upon God, a continual practice of self-denial, the workers will not sink into discouragement. They will not worry.—Manual for Canvassers, 22, 23 (1902). CM 114.3
But when tribulation comes upon us, how many of us are like Jacob! We think it the hand of an enemy; and in the darkness we wrestle blindly until our strength is spent, and we find no comfort or deliverance.... We also need to learn that trials mean benefit, and not to despise the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when we are rebuked of Him.—Thoughts from the Mount of Blessing, 25 (1896). CM 118.3
Workers for Christ are never to think, much less to speak, of failure in their work.—Gospel Workers, 19 (1915). CM 118.4
The Secret of Success:
Joshua had received the promise that God would surely overthrow these enemies of Israel, yet he put forth as earnest effort as though success depended upon the armies of Israel alone. He did all that human energy could do, and then he cried in faith for divine aid. The secret of success is the union of divine power with human effort. Those who achieve the greatest results are those who rely most implicitly upon the Almighty Arm.—Patriarchs and Prophets, 509 (1890). CM 106.2
