Mary was the first

Q: Archbishop J, who was the first missionary disciple?

First, we must determine what is a missionary disciple? To answer this, I will turn to Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation, Joy of the Gospel, 120:

“Every Christian is a missionary to the extent that he or she has encountered the love of God in Christ Jesus: we no longer say that we are ‘disciples’ and ‘missionaries’, but rather that we are always ‘missionary disciples’. If we are not convinced, let us look at those first disciples, who, immediately after encountering the gaze of Jesus, went forth to proclaim Him joyfully: ‘We have found the Messiah!’.”
