At any moment of the day you can bring the world to you, through news broadcasts, the Internet and smart phone. But, have you ever thought about you, yourself going to the world? You may quickly dismiss the idea, but Jesus looked into the eyes of eleven followers, and said, “Go into all the world.” You can make a difference in the U.S. and around the globe.
You can also serve right here at home by praying for our teams. Visit the Prayer page for information on teams currently in the field and ways you can pray. Follow teams in the field through their blogs (links are located in the sidebar).
