Missionaries needed...

Luke 10:2
"The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field."

Many people around the world are dying every day without knowing Jesus as their Lord and Savior. These people are entering an eternity of suffering and hell, separated from the God who loves them, who created them. Did they know about the saving grace of Jesus Christ or did they die never having heard the truth?

Jesus said that people want to hear the truth, but few people will go and tell them. The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. More missionaries are needed to share the Gospel with the lost and dying world.

Matthew 28:19a:
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations..."

I know that being a missionary can be hard work and God can choose to send you to a part of the world that is not the most desirable to live in (in our Western world ideals). However, being a missionary does not necessarily mean suffering in poverty.

While in Aruba, I discovered that there are no Christian churches on the island. There were 2 Catholic churches and one Jewish synagogue, but no Christian churches. The native people of Aruba are living their daily lives without hearing about Jesus.

Aruba needs missionaries!! I know it sounds strange, but it is true. I think it would be a hard mission field, but pray that God will provide missionaries for Aruba.
