“As with Gladness Men of Old” may we be led and leading others to Jesus. Praise God that US Christians have pioneered and generously supported missions on a massive scale for more than a century. The number, variety, and commitment of US missionaries and agencies have impacted the world. Pray for local churches to make the Great Commission central to their church life. Only a small minority of evangelical churches carry the bulk of the task of supporting some 60,000 foreign missionaries.
