    </font>[/QUOTE]I tend to agree, but I prefer to think of the whole world as a mission field. My son-in-law is the youth Pastor, and above the door that leads out of the teen's Sunday School room is a sign that says "YOU ARE NOW ENTERING THE MISSION FIELD" - that hit home with me when I saw it. Not many adults go into that room, so I mused over the knowledge and the awareness that our teens are gaining when I saw it. PLUS, I was
    really struck by the fact that, while in Uganda, I felt more relaxed at witnessing and passing out trax..and why should I? The people HERE need salvation just as much as the people THERE. But we tend to think of OVER THERE as the needy ones, when needy ones are all around us.


    Make sense?

    Well Carey pretty much proved that he was right by the fruits of his ministry which was huge numbers of people born again! [​IMG]

    DCorbett,
    Yes, it makes good sense to me! After all, Acts 1:8, gives us plenty of room to evangelize. The fields are truly ready for harvest, let's persist in prayer for more workers.
