Jesus instructed everyone of us in Matt 28:18-19 to go and make disciples of the nations and gave us the Holy Spirit to be his witness in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and ends of the earth Acts 1:8.
We have over 3 billion people and 7000 people groups that are yet to hear about the love and sacrifice Christ made on the cross. This, I believe should be something of great concern to every believer saddled with the responsibility of reaching the nations.
With the statistics available to us, there are many lands yet to conquer. These numbers should be a weight and burden on the heart of any genuine believer, knowing that many Christ gave his life for are still outside the fold.
One of greatest challenges facing missions is the lack of trained missionaries. There are about 300,000 missionaries in the world to reach a total of 3 billion people! The harvest is ripe and the labourers are few.
At the heart of the vision is to mobilize to raise new missionaries accross the local church, support the existing missionaries on the mission field and call the attention of the body of Christ to the urgency of the task at hand.
If every Christian fulfils their part in this assignment, I believe the the mandate of reaching the nations will be fulfilled in our time.
The cry of our heart is we will rise us to take our place by going, praying, funding, and mobilizing for the great commission.
