“The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” —Matthew 9:37-38
Today we are thankful for our missionaries who have obeyed God and went out as workers, sharing the good news of Jesus, and bringing in a harvest of new lives who are now followers of Him. Thank you missionaries for giving of your time, and making it your life mission to share the Gospel message with those who have not heard. Often times, we do not understand how much of a sacrifice it can be to serve, even in a short term capacity. It can involve changing your plans. It can involve giving up comforts. It can involve the challenges of learning new languages, cultures, and contexts. It can involve leaving behind friends and family, even temporarily. It can even involve going into some parts of the world that are dangerous and risky, yet you still go because you know that God’s call on your life is what you were designed for. Thank you for inspiring us and showing us what it means to go and make followers of Jesus Christ at home and around the world.
