The Need and A Call

Missionaries are dedicated people with a rock-solid faith, a calling and convictions that compel them to go to the lost in foreign lands. Many of them have difficulty wrapping their minds around the fact that more of God’s people don’t “Go.” To many missionaries, their focus is on a command, not a calling.
