On the Topic of Missions For Christians, the topic of Missionary work is always something that is met with mixed opinions. Some believe that we have fulfilled our duties of bringing people to Christ, some believe that you can only reached lost people by going to other countries, and some believe that there is a larger calling in our own neighborhoods. I think that as long as there is still one person in this world who does not know the Lord as their true Savior, then we still have mission work to do. I do not believe that it is necessary for all believers to travel to other countries to help bring the lost to God. As Christ’s followers we have to bring as many people to Him as possible.
