Three more teams have returned from the mission field! Using their Spring Break to bring the Gospel to the nations, we have heard some amazing reports. All three teams were in Guatemala, but they were in 3 different locations. One team was in the north, near the Mexican border, one was in a village, and one was in a small city.
The teams reached out to people through evangelism, a VBS for kids, food distribution, and prayer ministry. Ranging in age from 12 years old, to 72 years young, the missionaries on these teams did an amazing job.
I have heard it said that the greatest distance is from the head to the heart—many Christians understand what they are hearing in church, or studying God’s Word on their own, yet they do not truly believe it or make it a part of their lives. I would take it further, saying that the greatest distance is from the heart to the feet—I find it hard to believe that true Christians want people to end up in hell, or live on this earth in abject poverty. I think we all want to see people come into God’s Kingdom—but thinking about it, and believing it, do not make it happen. We have to go. Go into people’s lives. Go into their world. Go where the need is the greatest. It is our feet that take us there. Paul wrote in Romans 10:14-15,
How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!”
Nothing brings the Bible more alive than when you are engaged in ministry, outreach and evangelism—especially on the foreign mission field. When I have the opportunity to stand in a village and speak to someone who has never heard of Jesus, I often think about verses like this one. If we don’t go, they don’t hear. We must go.
Pray for Global Infusion this month, as we are getting ready to launch TEN mission teams in the month of May. Many are going, so many will hear. Prayerfully consider donating to GI as well —with more funds, we can reach more people with the Gospel, feed more families, help more who are sick, and see more lives eternally changed. donate now
