    Other groups

    As I follow many of these threads about joining the Amish, it occurs to me that many people who are led to seek fellowship with an Old Order group may not be looking far enough. There are other Old Orders out there that are much more approachable than the Amish. The Old Order River Brethren and Old German Baptist Brethren groups come to mind. These groups are very open to outsiders and both have numerous members who were not born into the church. Both are very conservative, plain dressing, English speaking(no need to learn a new language) and both have smaller brotherhoods that are horse and buggy for those being led that way.

    joining the Amish

    I know of a guy that lived with them and pretended he was going to join to avoid the law.

    Are the horse and buggy Mennonites similar when it comes to Converts?

    Yes, the Old Order Mennonites (horse and buggy) would be equally difficult to join. There are car driving Old Order Mennonites as well. The same obstacles as with the Amish would be present with the OOM.

    If you seriously consider to join the Amish, you should read this Wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seeker_(Anabaptism) This article contains a lot of information for seekers who want to join an Old Order group.

    Comment on Searching for a certain Amish Gal. (March 20th, 2018 at 00:26)

    Searching for a certain Amish Gal.

    It does help to become a part of an Amish family to have acceptance in there faith. I am from north central Indiana and there is a certain Amish Gal I once knew who had an interest in me but at the time, the time was not right for me. I don’t remember her name but she used to work at The Cheese Hause for a long time which is between Middlebury and Shipshewana Indiana. She frequently worked as a cashier at the Yoder Consignment Auction and The Haiti Benefit Auction. She was kind of tall, frequently wore light colors, dark hair, and big beautiful smile. By now she is probably in her 40s. Last I knew, she was still not married. She did act very Christian and committed in her faith. It would probably not start as anything serious but who knows. Just have dinner, walks in the park, and some devotional time. If anyone thinks they know who I am talking about then respond or even let her know about this so that contact can be made.

    need help in becoming Amish immediately!!!

    Good evening, everyone, I’m writing this because, since 2009, I have wanted to become fully, 100% Amish. I have been, for years, completely ready to totally leave English/mainstream American life permanently, And to go live in an Amish household, perhaps as å hired girl. I am 40, childless, already Christian, already believe in The Amish faith, don’t use that many high-tech things, and already dress Amish. I did ask an Amish girl, through å postal letter å few years ago, if she could help me find an Amish person to talk with who would get me started, but my question was completely ignored. PLEASE, I want so badly to become Amish NOW!!!I am sick of waiting!!! Is there even one person who can introduce me to some Amish people who would be open to me? I especially need help because I am extremely shy. Please, someone help me to become Amish!!!@!

      Joining the Amish

      The Amish won’t come looking for you — you will have to go to the Amish. I feel sorry that you are shy but if you can’t take the steps to take action, nothing will happen. It is not an easy change to make and overcoming shyness is just the beginning.

    Eagle Valley Contact

    Does anyone have contacts with the Eagle Valley Ministries in Libby, Montana? I sent an email to them, but it was returned because the address could not be found or is unable to receive mail. Thanks
