“Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20 niv
Jesus sends His Church just as He was sent by His Father (John 20:21), and we know that is to nearby, a bit more remote (distance and culturally), and to the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8).
We want to make disciples wherever God sends us, but we must have our eyes on the places He is going, which includes EVERY people group.
Please pray for our missionaries, but also pray for our body right here in Oregon, that all of us will make disciples, and follow the teaching of the New Testament that it is all the people of God who are called to the work of ministry.
