My fear is that many of the things we call “missions” are simply inter-church aid. We talk about “serving the national believers” or sending our money to them to “do it.”
But what do you do when there are no believers there? Send money? We all know that the unreached people groups have nobody in them to send your money to.
But the fact that 86% of the Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists of the world do not even know a Christian, simply must change. What are you doing to help that change?
