Missions is often far from our thoughts. However, spreading the Gospel is not just the responsibility of the missionaries. We, as Christians, are called to be witnesses for the Lord. We hope that this Mission Conference can inspire us to make missions a part of our daily lives, whether it be in our communities, in our workplaces, or in our families. May we please the Lord by living out God’s calling, and be vessels of honor, sanctified, and useful to the Master.
