Missions Quotes

"'Not called!' did you say?
'Not heard the call,' I think you should say.

Put your ear down to the Bible, and hear Him bid you go and pull sinners out of the fire of sin. Put your ear down to the burdened, agonized heart of humanity, and listen to its pitiful wail for help. Go stand by the gates of hell, and hear the damned entreat you to go to their father's house and bid their brothers and sisters and servants and masters not to come there. Then look Christ in the face — whose mercy you have professed to obey — and tell Him whether you will join heart and soul and body and circumstances in the march to publish His mercy to the world. — William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army

Friday, my fiance' joined my uncle, my aunt, my cousin and a team from Branson, MO and flew to El Salvador where they will spend a week doing all they can to lead souls to Christ. And I say amen! My only problem is that I'm not walking the streets with them. But God wants me here and so I am content. But my thoughts and prayers are over there with them as they speak, preach, sing, and share the love of our great God.

All of us are commanded to GO! You may not be called to go work and serve in Africa, India, Haiti, China, or El Salvador, but you are told to GO! It could be your backyard; Your school, your home, your work, etc.  If you are unable, then send someone or pray for those who do. In some form or fashion, in some way - we are to reach people for Christ. I pray you will GO!
