The worldwide proclamation of the Gospel awaits accomplishment by a generation which shall have the obedience, courage, and determination to attempt the task.
-John R. Mott
The more We experience life on the mission field, the more we believe this quote to be true! The fields are rip for harvest all we need is a generation willing to attempt the task! God is working in the hearts and minds of people all over the world.
Perhaps he is working with your neighbor, you will never know unless you speak to them. If you want to be part of the generation that obeys and has courage and determination to attempt the task of global evangelism start with your neighbor. In Acts chapter 1 Jesus set forth four concentric circles of witness. He doesn’t call His disciples to go to the ends of the earth first. He calls his disciples to start where they are then, to go where it’s easy after that, to go where it’s hard and finally go to the ends of the earth. We are convinced that very few would go to the ends of the earth if they were not also faithful in every concentric circle of witness.
May we be the generation of believers who seek the face of God. May we be the ones to take his gospel to the ends of the earth.
With much love, The Downings
