    We have several missionaries who post on the BB. It would be interesting if you would share what country you are in and a little bit about the ministry. Also, if you have any specific prayer requests. Sometimes it helps us to pray for you if we know exactly how to pray & what your needs are - personal and for the Lord's work you are doing.

    Where are you serving from? Are you planting national churches? Are you sheparding national pastors? Do you feel in danger where you are? How long have you been on the field? What Mission Board are you with? Etc., etc. Things like that. [​IMG]

    I am a missionary to the United States.
    I am sent out by Christ to the lost and dying.
    My prayer request is that all unsaved will repent and put their faith in Christ Jesus. Also, that ALL Christians will rise up and get busy for God.
    My life is in danger in that I have a tendency to grow cold to this world and thus end up with a lack of concern for the lost.
    I am planting the seed- praying, sowing, reaping; yet God gives the increase and it is He alone who deserves the glory.

    Out of all the missions fields out there, the United States of America is probably one of the least evangelized. This is becoming an athiestic, humanistic country. We need the D.L. Moody's, the Jonathan Edwards, etc. to come forward.

    Praise God for the work you are doing! I find it ironic how the United States has been a leader in spreading the Gospel throughout the World and now, it has come to this.

    May God Bless You as You continue to Serve Him! [​IMG]

    May all Christians be found faithful in serving the risen Saviour. Whether it be in the U.S.A. or Antartica, we all have a mission field. Let's go out into the highways and hedges and compell them to come in, for the time is drawing nigh when the doors will be closed and the judgement will follow. Woe is unto them that heed not the call unto repenting faith in Christ.

    I have respectfully disagree with part of you point here. The US is the most evangelized nation on the planet. It is not that the gospel is not available here (where else or when else has the gospel been as available as right now?). The problem is what we have done with the gospel here.

    You mention Edwards (and, with some irony, with Moody) as an example. What Edwards did was preach to so-called believers and remind them of their sin. If you study the Great Awakening of the mid-18th century (Iain Murray's bio of Edwards is one of the best intros), you find that what was happening could be called "re-evangelism". Edwards merely preached the old truths of Scripture (his Puritan Calvinism was considered passe by his day) and it cut to the quick.

    Then again perhaps you are correct. If the US has not been properly evangelized, perhaps it has not been evangelized at all.

    This is definitely needed today.
    "preach the old truths of scripture and it cut to the quick."
