Short Term Missions

5 REASONS MISSIONS MUST STAY TOP PRIORITY

Jesus said in Acts 1:8 that we will receive power to be His witnesses in Jerusalem; Judea; Samaria and ends of the earth.

Here are 5 REASONS MISSIONS MUST STAY TOP PRIORITY even in these difficult times.

IT'S TIME TO PAINT YOUR OWN BUILDING!

"We're sending a team down from our church (in the U.S.) to paint the Sunday school rooms and build some shelves and lead a VBS."  These were the words from a well -meaning missions pastor to me as we conversed over dinner in a Central American country.  He's a smart guy and represents a church of loving, good-intentioned people who want to do something for missions.  The only problem is that we from the U.S. have been doing the work for too long that local, indigenous people could and should be doing themselves!
