- Our reliance on the Holy Spirit who empowers (Acts 1:8 : But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.).
- Our need for the church that commissions, and releases us.
- Our dependence on the home support team that fuels the mission with prayer and encouragement.
- Our desire to empower those in the places we serve through mutual learning and discipleship, and to reach places where the churches is not yet.
The only way to get an expansion of the the mission force is by making it much more accessible to volunteers.
I see young people from Bangladesh, helping out to evangelize in some of the strong Hindu strongholds, and experiencing the power of Christ. I hear laughter of a retired German couple, playing with children in a refugee camp in Jordan. I sense a feeling of excitement in local churches being able to become involved in mission, by sending one of their young man.
