God had an only Son and He made Him a missionary.
~ David Livingstone ~
My nephew, Jordan, and his wife are missionaries to the Hunkpapa
Sioux on Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in north central South Dakota. One of the highlights of our Christmas season was having them stop by on their way home to Ohio and Pennsylvania. Melanie fixed a delicious lunch and their three children were able to run and play while we visited a bit.
A missionary is defined as "one who is sent on a mission, especially one sent to do religious or charitable work in a territory or foreign country." Oswald Chambers defines a missionary as "someone sent by Jesus Christ just as He was sent by God."
According to Chambers' definition my daughter is a missionary in her own home. As a writer, I am a missionary whose words are sent out to be read by others. My pastor is a missionary, sent by God to open the Word to his congregation. Missionaries--all of us. I want to be faithful to the sending.
