missionaries in the usa

I have been thinking recently about our jacked up view that missionaries are the people that go to foreign countries and that we are not missionaries here in America. I have some ideas on why that kind of thinking is common, and in the next few posts, I plan to write some of my reasons. In the meantime, though, I'd love to hear from you. Just click the "comments" button below and give your thoughts. I'll look forward to hearing from you.

There

    Before we bash actual, real life, foreign missionaries too much, let me add this thought. Yes, believers here in the USA SHOULD be missionaries to our own country but are we in fact doing that? One of the reasons foreign missionaries seem to have "saint" status is because they are in fact, actually telling people about Jesus.
