Be a Missionary day 7

Today is our Mexico team's last day in Tula. They will begin the journey back home tomorrow. I know that it has been an absolutely amazing and incredible trip. I can't wait to hear the stories about how God has been at work!

Here's their Bible study for today. Please pray that God will speak to them in a fresh way today.

Day 7

There is always more to do on mission trips than can possibly be completed in one week. On the last day, it is common to ache for the work that still needs to be done. It is normal to feel your heart torn apart with hopeful desperation for people you have come to love.

Jesus felt the same way during His ministry. Matthew 9:36-38, “He felt great pity for the crowds that come, because their problems were so great and they didn’t know where to go for help. They were like sheep without a shepherd. He said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is so great, but the workers are so few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send out more workers for his fields.’”

On every mission trip you will find that the need for more missionaries is unimaginable. In one week, much is accomplished, but at the same time, much is left undone. Pray today that God will raise up many more workers to share the Good News of Jesus with the billions of people who have still never heard. Pray that God will teach you to live every day as if you are a missionary.
