Remember to keep our missionaries in your thoughts and prayers as they are reaching others for Christ.
A Christian missionary is a person who dedicates his or her life to fulfilling the Great Commission: to preach the Gospel, baptizing and making disciples (Matthew 28:19-20). Often, the missionary will spread the Gospel while performing a practical service, such as working at an orphanage, teaching in missionary schools, teaching national people to be ministers, or providing medical care. There are as many different types of jobs in missions as there are in normal life. Some are translators, some pilots, and others help trafficking victims recover.
It takes a particular type of person to choose to spend a lifetime reaching those who desperately need Jesus but don't want to learn about Him. Missionaries must be very certain that Jesus means more to them than worldly things, and bringing others to Jesus is more important than comfort.
(19) Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
(20) Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
