Expect great things from God, attempt great things for God.

quotes for mission trips

God isn't looking for people of great faith, but for individuals ready to follow Him

The will of God - nothing less, nothing more, nothing else.

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

quotes for mission trips

He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.

The desperately poor are not going to come to us to hear the Good News. We have to go to them.

And people who do not know the Lord ask why in the world we waste our lives as missionaries. They forget that they too are expending their lives... and when the bubble has burst they will have nothing of eternal significance to show for the years they have wasted.

God's work done in God's way will never lack God's supply.

We talk of the second coming, half the world has never heard of the first.

The Great Commission is not an option to be considered; it is a command to be obeyed.

I believe that in each generation God has called enough men and women to evangelize all the yet unreached tribes of the earth. It is not God who does not call. It is man who will not respond!

To belong to Jesus is to embrace the nations with Him.

Radical Christianity is not going on a missions trip or a big conference. Radical Christianity is staying steady for decades.

The spirit of Christ is the spirit of missions. The nearer we get to Him, the more intensely missionary we become.

The Church must send or the church will end.

If Jesus Christ be God and died for me, then no sacrifice can be too great for me to make for Him.

It is not in our choice to spread the gospel or not. It is our death if we do not.

Answering a student's question, 'Will the heathen who have not heard the Gospel be saved?' thus, 'It is more a question with me whether we, who have the Gospel and fail to give it to those who have not, can be saved.

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations

The best remedy for a sick church is to put it on a missionary diet.

'Go ye' is as much a part of Christ's Gospel as 'Come unto Me.'

The command has been to "go," but we have stayed - in body, gifts, prayer and influence. He has asked us to be witnesses unto the uttermost parts of the earth... but 99% of Christians have kept puttering around in the homeland.

I wasn't God's first choice for what I've done in China...I don't know who it was...it must have been a man...a well-educated man. I don't know what happened. Perhaps he died. Perhaps he wasn't willing...and God looked down...and saw Gladys Aylward...and God said, 'Well, she's willing.'

To stay here and disobey God - I can't afford to take the consequence. I would rather go and obey God than to stay here and know that I disobeyed.

Called to Go: 7 Inspiring Bible Verses for Your Next Mission Outreach

quotes for mission trips

08 Nov Called to Go: 7 Inspiring Bible Verses for Your Next Mission Outreach

Going on a mission trip can be an incredibly rewarding yet challenging experience. While you may be excited to serve others and share the good news of the gospel, you may also feel hesitant about being in a new environment and culture. Fortunately, the Bible offers many encouraging verses to motivate and inspire us for mission work and outreach. Here are 7 uplifting scriptures to fuel your passion and purpose for your next mission trip:

Matthew 28:19-20 – “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

This famous verse is known as the Great Commission. Jesus commands us to go to all peoples and make disciples through baptism and teaching. We can take comfort knowing that Christ is always with us in the mission field.

Acts 1:8 – “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Jesus promised spiritual power through the Holy Spirit to enable us to be effective witnesses for Him locally and globally. Rely on that supernatural strength for your outreach efforts.

Isaiah 6:8 – “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

When God asks for someone to go to spread His message, may our response be like Isaiah’s – full of willingness and eagerness to serve God wherever He calls us.

1 Peter 4:10-11 – “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms…so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ.”

Use your unique talents and abilities to serve others and bring glory to God on your mission outreach. Share His love creatively and faithfully.

Joshua 1:9 – “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

If you feel fearful or discouraged, remember God’s ever-present help and strength for every mission task ahead.

Mark 16:15 – “He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.'”

Jesus’ command is to spread the good news to everyone everywhere. Be bold in proclaiming Christ on your outreach.

Psalm 96:3 – “Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.”

35 Inspirational Missionary Quotes That Bring Life

“The greatest conduct is love in action.” ― Lailah Gifty Akita . Here are 35 Inspirational Missionary Quotes.

Missionary Quotes

1. “I will go anywhere, provided it be forward.” ― David Livingstone

2. “When I cannot read when I cannot think when I cannot even pray, I can trust.” ―  Hudson Taylor

3. “You have one business on earth – to save souls.” ― John Wesley

4. “Depend on it. God's work done in God's way will never lack God's supply. He is too wise a God to frustrate His purposes for lack of funds, and He can just as easily supply them ahead of time as afterward, and He much prefers doing so.” ― Hudson Taylor

5. “God Hold us to that which drew us first when the Cross was the attraction, and we wanted nothing else.” ― Amy Carmichael

6. “Untold millions are still untold.” ― John Wesley

7. “To me, there is no more tragic sight than the average missionary. …We have given so much, yet not the one thing that counts; we aspire so high, and fall so low; we suffer so much, but so seldom with Christ; we have done so much and so little will remain; we have known Christ in part, and have so effectively barricaded our hearts against His mighty love, which surely He must yearn to give His disciples above all people.” ― Amy Carmichael

8. “We can leave a place behind, or we can stay in that place and leave our selfishness (often expressed in feeling sorry for ourselves) behind. If we leave a place and take our selfishness with us, the cycle of problems starts all over again no matter where we go. But if we leave our selfishness behind, no matter where we are, things start to improve.” ― John H. Groberg

9. “There were two worlds, two lives, for each person: this one--brief, narrow, finite; and the hereafter-- eternal, limitless, infinite. Fame, to mean anything, should go with one into the next world, where one could enjoy it perpetually.” ― Courtney Anderson

71 Inspiring Missionary Work Quotes

The work of missionaries is inspiring to say the least, and for those who may be considering this path for themselves, it can be helpful to hear some of the quotes of wisdom passed down by those before them.

These quotes belong to those who dedicated their lives to serving the kingdom of God, not for their own glory, but for the glory of God.

These frontline workers have learned a lot, and by taking the time to read some of their words, we can perhaps gain some wisdom, encouragement, and inspiration from their experience.

33 Quotes from Prominent Missionaries Across History

Throughout the course of history, several missionaries stand out, and their words can inspire and encourage us as we build on the foundation that they laid down around the world.

William Carey: Pioneer to India

Often referred to as the father of modern missions, William Carey was the founder of the Baptist Missionary Society and one of the first missionaries of his kind.

At the beginning of his career he pastored a church in Moulton, Northamptonshire, England, while also working as a teacher and a cobbler.

However, over time, he became convinced that this was not enough, that the Bible required more of believers than to teach the good news where they are.

He believed that the Great Commission was a command to be fulfilled by every generation of Christians.

He tried to communicate as much to other leaders but they rebuked him and ignored what he had to say. As a result he founded the Baptist Missionary Society (BMS) and became one of its first missionaries to India.

John Thomas and his wife and child, along with Carey’s wife, child, and sister in law, set off for India and arrived in 1793.

He faced a lot of hardship initially with the death of his son, Thomas squandering their money, his sister in law deserting them, and his wife developing a mental illness.

Yet he persisted, and eventually relocated to Serampore, a Dutch colony where he would live until he died in 1834.

In Serampore he connected with two other missionaries, Joshua Marshman and William Ward. The three became known as the Serampore Trio, each contributing their various skills to help in India’s evangelization. Marshman as a preacher, Ward as a printer, and Carey as a translator.

Ultimately, it was the translation work that Carey would end up making a real impact. He translated the Bible into Bengali and several other languages and dialects that were prominent in India, and his Bengali Bible became vital to later translations in the language.

The ministry of the Serampore Trio became very fruitful in India, leading to 1,407 baptized converts by 1821.

It also became the inspiration for the next generation of missionaries to come after him including Adoniram Judson, Lottie Moon, and Bill Wallace and continues to be an inspiration to aspiring missionaries today.

Quotes from William Carey:

“To belong to Jesus is to embrace the nations with Him.”
“Expect great things from God. Attempt great things for God.”
“To know the will of God, we need an open Bible and an open map.”
“I’m not afraid of failure; I’m afraid of succeeding at things that don’t matter.”

David Brainerd: Pioneer to the Americas

Born in Haddam, Connecticut in 1718, David Brainerd would become one of the first missionaries to Native Americans. His story began, however, while pursuing ministry at Yale.

Desiring to become a minister, Brainerd went to Yale to get his degree. However, while he excelled academically he was expelled during his junior year for talking poorly of his tutor.

He made multiple attempts to get back into the school but was refused every time.

The law required a degree from Harvard, Yale, or another European University to be a minister so when he couldn’t get back into school he began to look for other ways to pursue God’s calling in his life.

In 1742, Brainerd was finally licensed to preach by Jonathan Dickinson who first proposed the opportunity of becoming a missionary to him.

After seeking God’s direction in prayer, God birthed in him a desire to become a missionary to the Native Americans.

Brainerd began his missionary ministry in 1742 working among several Indian tribes, preaching and teaching the people about the gospel.

However, he experienced little success in these initial ventures.

Finally, in 1745, Brainerd experienced his first notable victory among natives in Crossweeksung, New Jersey. There, many people were filled with sorrow for their sin and chose to become followers of Jesus.

One-hundred and thirty natives were saved in this first year, and 77 were baptized.

Brainerd’s ministry continued to be fruitful there, however, his health was deteriorating after years of battling tuberculosis and depression.

He eventually had to leave his ministry behind and stayed with Jonathan Edwards where he was cared for until the day he died in 1747.

While his ministry was not a long one, only four years, he made a huge impact on the lives of many native Americans and inspired the creation of Princeton and Dartmouth College.

He continues to inspire others today as well, his life being a testimony to what God can accomplish through a willing heart, even if the body is weak.

Quotes from David Brainerd:

“Lord, let me make a difference for you that is utterly disproportionate to who I am. “
“I love to live on the brink of eternity.”

Adoniram Judson: Pioneer of Overseas Missions in America

The first overseas missionary from America, Adoniram Judson received his call to missions while attending Andover Seminary in Massachusetts.

This led to the creation of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions by Judson and several other classmates.

In 1812, Judson married his wife Ann (also known as Nancy) and they left together for Calcutta, India along with Samuel and Harriett Newel. These two families would become the first overseas, American missionaries.

Judson was aware that they would be meeting William Carey in India when they arrived and during their voyage determined to study what the Bible had to say about baptism.

This was an issue that divided Judson, a Congregationalist, from Carey, a Baptist. However, in the process, he found Carey’s view to be more biblical, and he and his wife became Baptists.

As a result, they decided they could no longer be sent by the American Board of Commissioners who expected them to follow their practices of baptism. This resulted in the withdrawal of financial support.

Thus, it was agreed that Luther Rice, another missionary with them who became a Baptist, would go back and try and raise support from the Baptists in America.

When they arrived in Calcutta they were baptized by some of Carey’s associates before they began their ministry in Burma.

They worked to learn the language and culture and Judson would eventually translate the entire Bible into Burmese.

During their time there the family would experience many trials including the death of three children and sickness that would cause Ann to return to America for a time.

They also wrestled with political unrest between the Burmese government and England, landing Judson in prison for nineteen months.

During this time Ann, who was back in the country, cared for him as best she could until he was released as a translator to help with peace negotiations.

Unfortunately, Judson’s trouble continued with the death of his wife and daughter, causing him to retreat into seclusion in the jungle.

However, after forty days he emerged and was filled with renewed energy for the mission, experiencing a season of fruitfulness until he died in 1850. Adoniram Judson was an amazing missionary and we can learn a lot from his life.

He persevered through trial after trial and showed humility when he found himself in conflict with other ideologies.

He took the initiative to do what had not yet been done, and Burma (now Myanmar) thanks him for it.

Quotes from Adoniram Judson:

“There is no success without sacrifice. If you succeed without sacrifice it is because someone has suffered before you. If you sacrifice without success it is because someone will succeed after.”
“The motto for every missionary, whether preacher, printer, or schoolmaster, ought to be ‘Devoted for Life.'”
“If I had not felt certain that every additional trail was ordered by infinite love and mercy, I could not have survived my accumulated suffering.”

David Livingstone: Making a Way to Africa

The story of David Livingstone is quite different from most others. His passion for missions began when he heard about opportunities for medical missions in China.

Yet, even as he began his training that dream was crushed by the Opium War.

This, however, led to his meeting Robert Moffat, a missionary to Africa, six months later who convinced him to instead pursue missions work in South Africa.

Livingstone agreed and for ten years did traditional mission work in this area where he would eventually marry Robert Moffat’s daughter, Mary Moffat.

As time went by, Livingstone became increasingly restless. His work had not appeared to be particularly fruitful and felt a new call to explore.

This led to his expedition of the “Missionary Road” or “God’s Highway.” This road would travel 1,500 miles into the interior of Africa with the hope of opening up a way to reach more people groups.

This process began Livingstone’s new role exploring uncharted territory in Africa. He explored the territory around the Zambezi River and Victoria Falls, exposing him to the devastation of the slave trade which he would fight against from that time on.

He also spent considerable time searching for the source of the Nile River, hoping to prove African roots of Judaism and Christianity and thus proving the Bible to be true.

Then, for two years, he simply dropped off the map. No one knew where he was until an American Journalist sought him out and found him, and wrote tons of articles on the meeting.

Livingstone’s ministry was not the traditional one of a missionary, however, his work laid the foundation for future evangelization on the African continent.

He explored a dozen countries and mapped out their territory allowing for better missionary work down the line. A great reminder that not all missions work looks the same.

Quotes from David Livingstone:

“If a commission by an earthly king is considered an honor, how can a commission by a Heavenly King be considered a sacrifice?”
“God, send me anywhere, only go with me. Lay any burden on me, only sustain me. And sever any tie in my heart except the tie that binds my heart to Yours.”
“I’d rather be in the heart of Africa in the will of God, than on the throne of England, out of the will of God.”
“If you have men who will only come if they know there is a good road, I don’t want them. I want men who will come if there is no road at all.”

Hudson Taylor: Pioneer to China

Hudson Taylor was a radical missionary to China in the 1850s. From the moment he was born his parents prayed that he would be called to missions work in China, and at the age of 21, that prayer was answered.

In 1953, Taylor arrived in Shanghai to begin his ministry.

Taylor understood what many of the missionaries of his time did not, the importance of culture and worldview. Instead of asking the people to adapt to his culture, he adapted to theirs and was soon wearing Chinese clothes and grew a pigtail, as was the tradition of other Chinese men.

As Taylor began his ministry he was quickly dissatisfied with the way other missionaries were handling things on the coast that he decided to push towards the Chinese interior where he spread the gospel and met his wife until he became sick in 1861.

Back in England to deal with his illness, Taylor didn’t give up on his mission. He continued translating the Bible into Chinese, and began to create what would become the China Inland Mission (CIM).

The CIM was different than most of the other missions organizations. Namely, all the missionaries were required to adapt to Chinese culture and dress, and they were also required to just trust God for the funding they needed.

Taylor’s work in China was characterized by radical faith. He knew and understood the risks but clung to the belief that it was all worth it, even if it cost life itself.

He prayed over and over for more missionaries and over and over God provided beyond what he had asked for.

Some of his radical decisions brought him into conflict with leadership however because of his faith and commitment to the mission, he never backed down.

He also experienced a lot of family loss including his wife and four of his eight children before they were even ten years old. However, God remained faithful, and Taylor continued stepping out in radical faith until his death in 1905.

Quotes from Hudson Taylor:

“All God’s giants have been weak men who did great things for God because they reckoned on God being with them.”
“Do not have your concert first, and then tune your instrument afterwards. Begin the day with the Word of God and prayer, and get first of all into harmony with Him.”
“God isn’t looking for people of great faith, but individuals ready to follow Him.”
“All God’s giants have been weak men who did great things for God because they reasoned on God being with them.”
“God’s work done in God’s way will never lack God’s supply.”
“It does not matter how great the pressure is. What really matters is where the pressure lies—whether it comes between you and God, or whether it presses you nearer to His heart.”

Jim Elliot: Martyr in South America

Jim Elliot is one of the most prominent martyrs for the Christian faith in recent years and is well known for his sacrifice and ministry in Ecuador.

There he gave his life serving the Lord among the Auca tribe, preparing the way for the missionaries that would follow him, including his wife.

From a young age, Elliot expressed a strong desire to be a missionary. Inspired by missionaries like David Brainerd, William Carey, and Amy Carmichael, Jim applied to Wheaton College where he would prepare for a future in overseas missions, and meet his future wife, Elisabeth Howard.

In 1950, Elliot went to Camp Wycliffe for the summer where he would learn important language skills, however, perhaps more importantly, he worked with a former missionary that had worked among the Quechua people in Ecuador.

This same missionary also told Elliot about the Auca tribe, a dangerous group of natives known for their violence and sporadic murder.

Despite the risk, Elliot knew that God was calling him to work among this tribe and began preparing to move to Ecuador. After multiple delays, Elliot finally made it to Ecuador where he would work among the Quicha people until the Auca could be located.

When the time came, Elliot and his team, including Pete Fleming, Ed McCully, Nate Saint, and Roger Youderian, boarded a plane and set off for their first, in-person encounter with the Auca.

Their first meeting appeared to go well when shortly after they landed, a man and two girls emerged from the jungle.

Nate Saint gave the man a ride in the plane over his village, and everything seemed to go smoothly. However, the man that they met that day went back to his village and lied about the missionaries and made false claims about them.

When they returned two days later on January 8, 1956, the Auca ambushed them and murdered the five missionaries.

Elliot’s testimony is a powerful testimony to the sacrifice involved in the sometimes glamorized missionary life. It also goes to show that God’s plan prevails because two years later, Elliot’s wife Elisabeth and Nate Saint’s sister Rachel would return to the Aucas, and their forgiveness and love would bring about the conversion of many in the tribe.

Quotes from Jim Elliot:

“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.”
“Wherever you are, be all there! Live to the hilt every situation you believe to be the will of God.”
“When the time comes to die, make sure that all you have to do is die.”
“Forgive me for being so ordinary while claiming to know so extraordinary a God.”
“Father, make of me a crisis man. Bring those I contact to a decision. Let me not be a milepost on a single road; make me a fork, that men must turn one way or another on facing Christ in me.”
“If we are the sheep of His pasture, remember that sheep are headed for the altar.”
“We are a bunch of nobodies trying to exalt Somebody.”

Brother Andrew: Smuggler at the Iron Curtain

Unlike some of the other missionaries in this post, Brother Andrew did not grow up a Christian. His parents were believers but he had no interest in their faith, though he would carry his mother’s Bible with him for several years.

Born in the Netherlands in 1928, much of Andrew’s childhood was spent in the thick of World War II.

As a child he was constantly in hiding, evading the Nazis as best he could, and fighting back where it was possible.

When he turned eighteen he joined the Dutch Resistance Army to continue the fight against Nazi occupation in his home country, and the experience left him an alcoholic, wounded and tormented by all the memories of war.

God had a different plan for Andrew’s life however and while he was in the hospital recovering from a bullet injury he was astonished by the joy each of the nurses had in their hearts.

On asking, he was encouraged to look to his mother’s Bible to find that same joy in his own life. As Andrew began reading his Bible and going to church, he was filled with a hunger for the Lord and gave his life over to Christ.

Later, at a missionary meeting held by a visiting evangelist, he would sense God’s call to missions and dedicate his life to that as well. In order to prepare himself for the task ahead, he began praying about attending the World Evangelistic Crusade Glasgow Bible College in Scotland.

Feeling discouraged because of his lack of education and his lame leg he gave his weaknesses to the Lord and God healed his leg and gave him the courage to attend school. After finishing school and some additional missionary training, Andrew pursued God’s call to bring Christianity to communist Poland.

This led to years of missionary work distributing Bibles behind the Iron Curtain.

This also led to the creation of a new ministry, Open Doors, that would continue to smuggle Bibles into various countries across the Soviet Union, Asia, and the Middle East.

Throughout his many journeys, God was faithful and kept Brother Andrew, and the Bibles, safe and hidden over and over again, allowing the good news to spread all over the world in a time where communism had become so devastating. Brother Andrew’s inspiring story is a great reminder of God’s faithfulness and continues to inspire and affect many today.

Quotes from Brother Andrew:

“The bigger the darkness, the easier it is to spot your little light.”
“Don’t curse the darkness but light a candle.”
“Persecution its an enemy the Church has met and master many times. Indifference could prove to be a far more dangerous foe.”
“Some want to live within the sound of church or chapel bell; I want to run a rescue shop, within a yard of hell.”
“God’s real people have always been called fanatics.”
“The ‘romance’ of a missionary is often made up of monotony and drudgery; there often is no glamour in it; it doesn’t stir a man’s spirit or blood. So don’t come out to be a missionary as an experiment; it is useless and dangerous. Only come if you feel you would rather die than not come. Don’t come if you want to make a great name or want to live long. Come if you feel there is no greater honor, after living for Christ, than to die for Him.”
“There are no closed doors to the Gospel, provided that, once you go through the door, you don’t care whether or not you come back out.”

8 Quotes from Missionary Women

Missionary women have become more prominent in recent years, however, there were some very important figures in history that broke the stereotypes for women of their time and set off to reach the unreached peoples around the world.

Elisabeth Elliot: Friend of the Auca

Elizabeth Elliot, wife of martyr Jim Elliot, played a big part in the evangelization of the Auca tribe which killed her husband. But before that could happen, we need to go back to Wheaton College where they met.

Elliot was born in Brussels, Belgium, 1926 but her family later moved to America where she would eventually attend Wheaton College.

Elisabeth’s brother was roommates with Jim Elliot, and the two eventually became friends.

They later decided that they wanted to take the relationship further, however God had called Jim to five years of singleness to pursue his will. However, after those five years were up, they got married in 1953. Two years later, their daughter Valerie was born.

The couple eventually moved to the Shandia mission base and worked together among the Quichua people while continue to search for the Auca. They were later located with the help of others on their team and on January 6, 1956, the five missionary men would have their first encounter.

What Elliot didn’t know, was that two days later, on their second trip to meet with the Auca, all five men would be murdered in an Auca ambush. Elliot and the other families mourned for the losses of their husbands and brothers and fathers.

Despite the terrible events, however, these women remained thankful for the obedience of those five men. Elliot continued working among the Quechua for two more years, befriending two Auca women who lived with them.

Then, in 1958, Elliot, her daughter Valerie, and Nate Saint’s sister Rachel left the Quechua with one of the Auca women, Dayuma, to go preach the gospel and live among the tribe that killed their loved ones.

This time, they were able to build relationships with those in the community and many of the people became Christians, including Mincaye, the man who killed Nate Saint. Elisabeth Elliot died in 2015, however, the story of her and her husband lives on.

Her story inspires us with her commitment to see every lost soul come to Christ, even those of the men who killed her husband.

Quotes from Elisabeth Elliot:

“Faith does not eliminate questions. But faith knows where to take them.”
“One does not surrender a life in an instant. That which is lifelong can only be surrendered in a lifetime.”

Mary Slessor: Everybody’s Mother

Mary Slessor may be one of the most important missionaries ever to set foot in Africa. Her ministry became the stepping stone for a multitude of other missionaries who came after her and her incredible faith and perseverance inspire many more.

As a child, Slessor was exposed to missionaries and their work early on, and she became determined to bring the gospel to others, especially in Nigeria.

Inspired by David Livingstone, she began to take steps towards this goal by joining the United Presbyterian Church and the Foreign Missions Board, and eventually sailed for Calabar, Nigeria in 1876. On arriving there, Slessor had her first encounter with an evil that she would fight against for the rest of her life.

Many of the tribes she would bring the gospel to throughout her ministry had little regard for human life and would often kill for human sacrifices, superstitions (such as twins), and even as cannibals for food.

In every tribe, Slessor would work against these practices, as well as advocating for women’s rights wherever she went. While working with the Okoyong she even instituted an economic system that helped to decrease these issues.

That being said, the gospel was still, first and foremost, her primary mission.

Throughout the course of her ministry Slessor would continue to push further and further inland, working among various tribes to spread the gospel. In each culture she would adapt, wearing their clothes and eating their food, and the people grew to love her.

Then in 1892, Slessor was chosen to be vice-consul in the territory, allowing her to continue to serve the communities. However, she served through the love of Christ, not force like the British consuls before her.

Over time, Slessor also adopted several children who would follow her from place to place as she spread the gospel. Continuing to serve in every possible way that she could she was always reaching out to the children in the community, remembering her own difficult childhood, and doing her best to provide in any way she could.

Slessor’s ministry was fruitful in so many ways, and continues to be fruitful as more and more people build upon the ministry she began. It was not without hardship, she returned home several times with malaria, a disease that eventually took her life in 1915. However, she continued to persevere and point people to the gospel until the very end.

Quotes from Mary Slessor:

“When you think of the woman’s power, you forget the power of the woman’s God. I shall go on.
“Christ sent me to preach the gospel and he will look after the results.”

Amy Carmichael: Mother to India

Amy Carmichael’s story has been inspiring people for generations, from her local ministry to her missionary work in India. Throughout childhood her family struggled with money and as she got older she developed a disease called neuralgia that would leave her bedridden for months at a time.

However, these things didn’t keep her from fulfilling God’s calling for her life. Before accepting the call to missions Carmichael was hard at work in her own hometown. She started Bible studies for young girls living in the slums which led to the creation of Welcome Evangelical Church in Belfast, Ireland.

After moving to Manchester, England she chose to live in the slums there and continue to minister. She continued this ministry until her disease made it impossible and she was forced to move to a family friend’s estate until she was well.

During this time she heard from Hudson Taylor and God renewed the fire for missions in her heart that had been stirring for several years so she knew she had to go.

As she began the search for a missions agency she found that her illness was keeping her from being sent. However, after much searching the Church Missionary Society finally accepted her and in 1893 she departed for Japan.

There she had a brief but fruitful ministry. She learned the importance of adapting to their culture and developed a strong faith as she prayed for souls to come to Christ. She continued in this ministry until her disease forced her to return home. This however, would lead to her ministry in India, for which she is most known.

One of the evils that was pervasive in this culture was the slavery of children in the temple, many of whom were chosen to “marry” their gods and be forced into temple prostitution.

Appalled by this practice, Carmichael opened her home to anyone who was escaping this fate.

To support these children she started the Dohnavur Fellowship, and in 1918 also added a home for young boys born to former temple prostitutes. Her ministry was making a huge impact on the community and would continue to do so for years to come until temple prostitution was outlawed in 1948.

However, Carmichael’s involvement in this ministry would change dramatically. After an accident in 1931 that resulted in a broken leg and ankle, Carmichael would become bedridden for the last twenty years of her life.

This never stopped her though. She continued to run the ministry as best she could from her room and also wrote several books and a lot of poetry.

Carmichael’s story is inspiring to say the least and is a great reminder that when we give our lives to God’s will, he will do mighty things, even when physical problems make it seem impossible.

Quotes from Amy Carmichael:

“A cup brimful of sweetness cannot spill even one drop of bitter water, no matter how suddenly jarred.”
“All along, let us remember we are not asked to understand, but simply to obey.”
“God hold us to that which drew us first, when the cross was the attraction and we wanted nothing else.”
“We have all eternity to tell of the victories won for Christ, but we have only a few hours before sunset to win them.”
“It is a safe thing to trust Him to fulfill the desire that He creates.”

5 Missions Quotes from Pastors

In the world of missions, some are called to be senders, and others the goers. The role of a pastor is to disciple his sheep and also to send out missionaries from their church to reach those who don’t yet have a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Oswald J. Smith

Oswald J. Smith was a Canadian pastor in Toronto where he advocated strongly for missions and created several colleges to help educate people for ministry. He also founded the Peoples Church in Toronto which was established in 1928.

Author of nearly twenty books, Smith is dedicated to preparing others for ministry and is committed to the churches purpose of sending out missionaries into the world.

Quotes from Oswald J. Smith:

“If God wills the evangelization of the world and you refuse to support missions, then you are opposed to the will of God.”
“Any church not involved in the Great Commission has forfeited its Biblical right to exist.”

John Piper is a theologian and pastor with a ministry in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He has become a well respected teacher across the country and is a strong advocate for missions.

He has also authored nearly fifty books that are helping many to understand the Word of God better and has allowed him to serve even more people around the world.

“Missions is not the ultimate goal of the church. Worship is. Missions exists because worship doesn’t.”
“Go, send, or disobey.”

25 Inspiring Quotes from Pastors and Missionaries Around the World

The pastors and missionaries above have contributed so much to the Great Commission through the grace of Christ. However, the body of Christ is made up of many people who are all working towards this same goal for the glory of God.

Here we have twenty-six individuals who are also dedicated to seeing the fulfillment of the Great Commission.

“Whatever we do, we must not treat the Great Commission like it’s the Great Suggestion.” —Charles R. Swindoll
“If you take missions out of the Bible, you won’t have anything left but the covers.” —Nina Gunter

“I have but one candle of life to burn, and I would rather burn it out in a land filled with darkness than in a land flooded with light.” —John Keith Falconer
“I believe that in each generation God has called enough men and women to evangelize all the yet unreached tribes of the earth. It is not God who does not call, it is man who will not respond.” —Isabel Kuhn
“The Gospel is only good news if it gets there in time.” —Carl F.H. Henry
“The command has been to ‘go,’ but we have stayed – in body, gifts, prayer, and influence. He has asked us to be witnesses unto the uttermost parts of the earth…but 99% of Christians have kept puttering around in the homeland.” —Robert Savage
“Missions is not for the hyperactive Christians in the church. Missions is the purpose of the church.” —Robby Gallaty
“Missions is the natural response to believing the gospel.” —Cale Etter
“Life is pitiful, death so familiar, suffering and pain so common, yet I would not be anywhere else. Do not wish me out of this or in any way seek to get me out, for I will not be got out while this trial is on. These are my people, God has given them to me, and I will live or die with Him and for His glory.” —Gladys Aylward
“If we are going to wait until every possible hindrance has been removed before we do a work for the Lord, we will never attempt to do anything.” —T.J. Bach
“To stay here and disobey God – I can’t afford to take the consequence. I would rather go and obey God than to stay here and know that I disobeyed.” —Amanda Berry Smith
“Jonah stalked to his shaded seat and waited for God to come around to his way of thinking. And God is still waiting for a host of Jonahs in their comfortable houses to come around to his way of loving.” —Thomas Carlisle
“The mission in Acts is about going and gathering, not just going and telling.” —Andy Chambers
“Jesus promised his disciples three things: they would be completely fearless, absurdly happy, and in constant trouble.” —G.K. Chesterton
“Missionary zeal does not grow out of intellectual beliefs, nor out of theological arguments, but out of love.” —Roland Allen
“Missions is practicing God’s presence until His passion compels us to obey.” —Ann Dugan
“A congregation that is not deeply and earnestly involved in the worldwide proclamation of the gospel does not understand the nature of salvation.” —Ted Engstrom
“I thought it reasonable that I should seek the work where the work was the most abundant and the workers fewest.” —James Gilmour
“This generation of Christians is responsible for this generation of souls on the earth!” —Keith Green
“If God calls you to be a missionary, don’t stoop to be a king.” —Jordan Grooms
“The biggest hindrance to the missionary task is self. Self that refuses to die. Self that refuses to sacrifice. Self that refuses to give. Self that refuses to go.” —Thomas Hale
“Since God is a missionary God, God’s people are a missionary people.” —Eddy Ho
“People are still waiting at the other end of our obedience.” —David Joannes

Each one of these missionaries were inspired to share the Gospel to the ends of the earth. They could not deny the call God had placed on their life. They were willing to give up their lives for the sake of Christ and proclaiming His name throughout the nations.

29. “The concern for world evangelisation is not something tacked on to a man’s personal Christianity, which he may take or leave as he chooses. It is rooted in the character of the God who has come to us in Christ Jesus.

35.  “The work of the church is not survival. She exists to fulfil the Great Commission.” – Brother Andrew

quotes for mission trips

3 VERSES TO REMEMBER FOR YOUR MISSION TRIP.

mission discovery volunteers

Every year, thousands of people pack up and head to places around the world to serve on a mission trip. Some know what they are getting into, but others are experiencing something entirely new to them.

So, what is a mission trip?

When a person goes on a mission trip, they make a decision to commit a focused length of time to the cause of Christ. Short-term mission trips can be a day, a week, or a year. They are any length of time that is not a lifetime commitment. Mission Discovery has committed to a lifetime of short-term mission trips to make it easier for individuals and groups to connect with long-term missionaries in U.S. cities and other countries.

As His disciples, we are called upon to spread His word.

“He said to them, “Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature.” – Mark 16:15

The goal of mission trips is to help spread His word to people and places who have not yet heard the good news of the kingdom of God. As we are created in His image, we become a vessel to share the word and His blessings. Mission trips are a way to be a vessel for His kingdom, for any amount of time.

For “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?” – Romans 10:13-14

A mission trip is not only about spreading the gospel; it’s about showing His love through our work. It is about fostering compassion and generosity by serving all of God’s children. We are told to love our neighbors and those neighbors span to every nook and cranny of the world. Jesus traveled healing, preaching, and sharing the love of God. A mission trip gives us the same chance to love and serve all those who Jesus died for.

“Jesus was going through all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness. Seeing the people, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd.” – Matthew 9:35-36

Everything we do is about exposing the incredible love of God to a world of people in need. During a short-term mission trip with Mission Discovery, our groups are at the full disposal of the local ministry partners and their purposes. Working in the communities in need, volunteers not only experience God’s compassion but receive the chance to bring His love to the unreached.

With a Mission Discovery trip, all your planning is taken care of. Food, lodging, transportation, and daily itinerary are pre-planned, taking a load off your back. At Mission Discovery, everything we do is to expose His love to all of His children. Our itineraries leave time for devotional thought and reflection.

8 Inspiring Bible Verses for Church Mission Trips

Ryan Haught

Preparing for a missionary trip can be both stressful and incredibly exciting–especially if it is your first mission trip. As you prepare for your trip by packing, researching the culture you'll be visiting, and getting any necessary vaccinations, don't forget to prepare yourself spiritually. Let God's Word sink in and remind you of the significance of your trip.

Below are some verses from Scripture to bless and encourage you as you prepare to travel. Study, memorize, or simply take joy in these Bible verses for mission trips. Feel free to share these graphics on social media.

Matthew 28:19-20 – The Great Commission

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Missions Bible Verse graphic - Matthew 28

This is arguably the most known and used Bible passage on missions. Your mission is obedience to the great commission that Jesus gave to his disciples just before his ascension to heaven. And he has promised to be with you as you go.

Romans 10:13-15 – Your Beautiful Feet

“For ‘everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.' How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!'”

Missions Bible Verse graphic - Romans

This passage sums up and defines just how important your missions trip is. How beautiful you are to those to whom you are sent.

1 Corinthians 13:1-3 – Nothing Without Love

“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.”

Missions Bible Verse graphic - 1 Corinthians

On a mission, it's easy to get caught up in tasks and goals. It's important to not forget why you are going on your missions trip to being with: to share the wonderful message of the love of God. This passage is a powerful reminder of what matters most.

Luke 10:2 – The Plentiful Harvest

“And he said to them,  “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. ”

Missions Bible Verse graphic - Luke

If you start feeling your work doesn't matter, this verse is a good reminder that your help is needed. Jesus Himself says there aren't enough workers!

Ephesians 2:10 – God's Handiwork

“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”

Missions Bible Verse graphic - Ephesians

There's no reason to fear that you won't do a good job on your missions trip. God personally set up this good work especially for you. You are God's perfect choice for the mission.

Romans 15:5-6 – Spirit of Unity

“May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Missions Bible Verse graphic - Romans

Satan will do all he can to tear your missions trip apart. Each member of your team will be tested. Here, the apostle Paul reminds us to stay unified in Christ and not turn on each other.

Philippians 2:14-15 – Shine Like Stars

“Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe.”

Missions Bible Verse graphic - Philippians

In keeping a godly attitude on your mission, you and your team will “shine like stars” among the people you minister to.

Galatians 6:9 – Patience for the Harvest

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”

Missions Bible Verse graphic - Galatians

The Bible promises us that doing good isn't always easy. Again: Satan hates this work you are doing. You will be tested hard.

So here's one final bit of encouragement to bring with you. Memorize this verse for the toughest days of your mission trip.

Bible Verses For Mission Trips

May these Bible verses for mission trips be your encouragement wherever God is sending you, and may God greatly bless you and the people to whom you are sent.

Bible Verses for Mission Trips

20 Inspiring Bible Verses For Mission Trips

Mission journeys have long been a component of religious life, and the Bible contains numerous examples of mission labor.

The Bible describes how God commands us to go into the world and preach His love and message. We see Jesus speaking to people and telling them the Good News, and His message is ageless.

Mission trips are voyages undertaken by individuals or groups with the goal of proclaiming the gospel, assisting those in need, and developing relationships with the local community.

This idea is founded on various biblical ideas, including the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20, in which Jesus urges his disciples to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Furthermore, the biblical ideal of loving one’s neighbor as oneself, as expressed in Matthew 22:39, is frequently a motivating factor for mission missions.

Missionaries strive to love and care for those in need, displaying Christ’s love through their acts and words.

Matthew 28:19-20

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit Teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.- Matthew 28:19-20 Advertisements (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Matthew 28_19-20

These are Jesus’ parting words to His eleven remaining disciples in Matthew’s account of His life.

Verses 18-20 are known as the “Great Commission” because Jesus sends His hand-picked disciples out into the world with a specific mission: Make more disciples.

This includes some notable inclusions, but it is also important to note what Jesus does not say.

The disciples are specifically instructed to make more disciples of all nations. This includes people from every people group and ethnicity on the planet.

God’s relationship with humanity has expanded beyond Israel through Jesus to include people from all over the world who come to the Father through the Son.

The command of Jesus is to make “disciples.” A disciple is someone who emulates his or her teacher master by relating to him as a servant.

They learn from and submit to the example of that person. That’s what each of the eleven disciples did when they heard Jesus’ call for the first time.

It is now what they will invite people from all over the world to participate in It is worth noting that Jesus does not instruct His disciples to “print Bibles” or anything similar.

But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.- Acts 20:24

Acts 20_24

Paul is meeting with the elders of the Ephesian church in Miletus. He has already told them that the Holy Spirit compels him to return to Jerusalem, despite the fact that he will face persecution there. He explains why he is so willing to obey in this section.

Apart from imprisonment, Paul has no idea what will happen in Jerusalem. However, in the past, he did not shy away from conflict if he believed it would serve Jesus’ purposes in Ephesus, he attempted to preach the gospel to a mob that had formed in opposition to his work and had taken two of his companion’s hostage (Acts 19:30) .

The ministry Jesus gave Paul is to bring Jesus’ offering of forgiveness of sins and reconciliation with God to the Gentiles, to kings and rulers, and to the Jews (Acts 9:15).

This is the gospel the “good news” of the grace that God offers sinners: that Jesus came, took accountability for our sins, died in our place, and rose glorified so that we, too, may be resurrected, glorified, and cleansed of our sins.

To Paul, his life is nothing compared to the mission of sharing this message.

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.- Mark 10:45

Mark 10_45

While Jesus calls us servants and slaves, the roles are not mutual; the Suffering Servant of Isaiah 53 acts for our benefit, but He is God’s servant, not ours.

Our attitude is similar to His, but whereas we literally put ourselves in the position of servant or slave for others, He takes the “form of a servant” to God rather than to us.

To usher in and be a part of God’s kingdom, we must live out our realization that we are ultimately powerless.

Regardless of our circumstances, God possesses true power. Even if we are recognized as leaders in the church, that role is still in essence a servant.

When the disciples hear these words for the first time, they believe the “captives” are Jews living under Roman rule.

The true captives, according to Jesus, are those who are slaves to sin. We can be set free from the sinful nature that separates us from God through Jesus’ death and resurrection. Our submission to God frees us to love others and enjoy eternal life (Romans 6:23).

The manifestation of God’s kingdom in us is this liberty. It is, however, an alien concept to Jews, whose mission has been to maintain a separate nation of God-fearers.

Great Jewish leaders were those who condemned their subjects for idol worship and led armies to defend their borders.

The leadership of Jesus ushers in a new era. It is founded on God’s submission and sacrifice for the sake of others.

Whatever is going on in your life right now, Jesus is your servant. It doesn’t mean you can command Him, but it does mean He exists.

He came specifically to assist you. To assist you in allowing Him to give His life as a ransom for you and to serve you.

To deliver you from your sin and to serve you throughout your life. Allow this to sink in. Jesus is both your and my servant.

For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.- Acts 18:10

Acts 18_10

In most of the other synagogues Paul visited at this time, the dissident Jews would be inciting the populace’s Gentiles and persuading them that Paul was a threat to law and order.

He would leave the city and return slyly later to expand the church. God, however, has other ideas for Corinth. “Do not be afraid, but go on speaking, and do not be silent,” he instructs Paul.

Later, Paul will say to the Corinthians: “Because if I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast about. I must, for necessity’s sake.

If I don’t preach the gospel, woe to me!” (9:16 in 1 Corinthians). The assurance that he will be secure is fresh.

Paul will explain in the Corinthian church how much he has suffered during his ministry He would leave town and sneak back in later to build up the church.

In Corinth, however, God has other plans. He tells Paul, “Do not be afraid, but go on speaking and do not be silent” (Acts 18:9).

1 Corinthians 15:58

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.- 1 Corinthians 15:58

1 Corinthians 15_58

Paul ends his letter’s major message by formally bringing his advice and teaching to a close.

He will focus on a variety of different topics in the subsequent, last chapter of 1 Corinthians.

He exhorts the Corinthians to be strong and obedient in light of everything he has written to them.

He expresses his love for them in more detail, calling them his loving brothers. Then he issues them a number of brief, inspirational directives.

“Stay the course.” Paul encourages them to continue on in their commitment to the Lord and to his teaching about the Lord.

“Always abound in the work of the Lord,” the Bible says. Paul has made it quite obvious that God provides opportunities for each believer to serve Him through serving others in the church.

The Corinthians need to be eager to do this. In contrast to so much of life that will cease to have significance in years, days, or even minutes, the work they undertake for the Lord is assured to continue to matter for all of eternity.

Even after addressing all the difficulties in this letter, such as the various ways the Corinthian Christians were misinterpreting God’s intentions and mistreating one another, Paul still refers to them as belonging to the Lord.

At no time is their salvation cast in doubt because of these misconceptions.

Paul is convinced they are followers of Christ. They will be resurrected to new, glorified bodies one day and spend eternity with the Father.

Because of the Corinthians’ faith in Christ and despite their flaws, Paul remains confident in God’s grace.

Bible Verses About our Mission in Life

According to the Bible, the purpose of human life is to love God and one’s neighbor as oneself.

The two greatest commandments, according to Jesus, are to “love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind” and “love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:37-39).

This concept is founded on Old Testament law, which maintains that all commandments spring from these two rules and that all other laws are simply extensions of them.

So, from a Biblical standpoint, our job is to be obedient and faithful to God and to utilize that faith to love our neighbors and ourselves.

Romans 8:28

And we know that for those who love God, all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.- Romans 8:28

Romans 8_28

Again, we have a verse that is extremely popular, frequently misapplied, and even controversial.

Despite its incredibly comforting message, this verse has had an awkward relationship with some Christians over the years.

This is due in large part to how simple it is to remove this verse from the context of Romans 8.

By removing these words from their context, the essence of what Scripture is saying is lost. It is also possible to correctly interpret the verse and still use it to dismiss another person’s genuine pain and suffering.

Paul has described the life of Christians on this side of heaven as one of groaning as we long to be free of this life’s suffering and to be with our Father God in person.

We look forward to the day when our bodies will be resurrected and we will share in God’s glory.

What about all the difficulties that arise while we wait? The promise of this verse appears to be offered as comfort to us by Paul.

What is the promise? That, for those who are saved, all things will indeed work together for good.

All things should be taken to mean each and every circumstance one might experience, even pain or suffering. “Work,” or “work together,” must be understood in light of God taking action in the world.

He is the one who causes all things to work together or, perhaps, works in and through all circumstances toward a specific end.

Romans 12:2

Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.- Romans 12:2

Romans 12_2

The meaning of Romans 12:2 is about abstaining from the pattern of this present time, but being converted by the renewing of your mind through the word of God, and acting according to His will which is good and perfect .

It is an alteration of the mind which reflects on outward appearance and how we live.

This transformation is to be in God’s likeness and image. Transformation is not magic but a lifelong task. The world has a pattern that is different from God’s.

Following the pattern of the world will lead to a broken life full of broken and disappointing life, but renewing your mind and following God will lead you to a better life that glorifies God. We must keep our eyes fixed on Jesus and reject everything that degrades Him.

This world’s pattern is ungodly. The devil, the world’s ‘god,’ has created an ungodly atmosphere that leads people to sin.

His goal in creating such an ungodly environment is to cause people to follow such unholy patterns that lead to sin.

Psalm 138:8

The Lord will accomplish that which concerns me.- Psalm 138:8

Psalm 138_8 (2)

According to Psalm 138:8, God will “perfect” whatever concerns us. This means that He is working all things for our good (Romans 8:28), that He has a perfect plan for our lives, and He is willing to move heaven and earth to make it happen.

God’s timetable may not always coincide with ours, but we can be confident that He sees more than we do, and His perspective while far superior to ours (Isaiah 55:8-9) – will always result in the best outcome for us.

Finally, the psalmist acknowledges that God’s mercy is the reason he is secure and requests that God’s favor be perpetually bestowed upon him.

God will never abandon us, even if we abandon Him from time to time (2 Timothy 2:13).

It would be against His nature: He will always accept a rebellious heart that returns to Him.

Encouraging Words for Mission Trips

One of our primary responsibilities as Christ’s soldiers is to serve the Kingdom of Heaven and make disciples of men.

Participating in a mission trip is one way to extend a friendly hand and introduce a new believer to Christ.

These inspirational bible verses for mission trips will provide you with encouragement and strength as you take on a new role in service.

1 Peter 4:10

As faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms, each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others.- 1 Peter 4:10

This verse encourages Christians to use their God-given talents, abilities, and gifts to serve and help others in need.

They can then be faithful stewards of God’s grace, using what they have been given to make a positive difference in the world.

This text also emphasizes that serving others should be viewed as an opportunity to share God’s love and grace with those in need, rather than an obligation or hardship.

For this is what the Lord has commanded us: ‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.- Acts 13:47

This Acts passage alludes to God’s goal for the apostle Paul and his colleagues to proclaim the gospel of salvation to non-Jewish people, also known as Gentiles.

It emphasizes the idea of sharing the gospel with all nations, regardless of background or culture, with the objective of bringing salvation to all people.

This verse is frequently utilized as the foundation for mission trips and evangelism, reminding Christians of the significance of sharing the gospel of hope and salvation with others.

 John 13:34

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.- John 13:34 

This scripture is frequently mentioned in conversations about mission trips because it is viewed as a guiding principle for Christians to love and serve others selflessly, as Jesus loved and served his disciples.

Mission trips can be viewed as a chance to put this commandment into reality by serving and loving others in concrete ways, conveying the message of Christ’s love, and serving as gospel ambassadors.

Letters of Encouragement for a Mission Trip

A full-time missionary’s life is not for the faint of heart. They abandon their homes, families, and everything they know in order to spread God’s message of hope and love throughout the world.

Back home, missionaries require dedicated supporters. They require monthly financial assistance, ministry resources, and medical and technological equipment.

They crave our encouraging words. They may even request our physical presence to assist with large projects and outreaches.

But if you ask any missionary what they most need, they will always say the same thing: “Please pray for us!” However, it can be difficult.

When you’re not sure where to start, start  praying scripture  over them. Below are a few areas where missionaries most desire your prayers.

Use these verses to help direct your prayer time and speak life-giving words over your missionaries abroad.

1. Strength and perseverance

Missionaries can often feel as though they’ve sown much with a little harvest. Pray for their strength and endurance to run the race that the Lord would remind them He is working deep in their hearts even when it seems like nothing is happening.

Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.  – Isaiah 40:31

2. Encouragement

Pray against discouragement, disappointment, fear, and doubt. Ask the Lord to bring people across their path who would encourage and uplift them. Be that person yourself.

Surely the righteous will never be shaken; they will be remembered forever. They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord. – Psalm 112:6-7

3. Provision

On a tight, missionary budget, the smallest unexpected expense can create a major financial strain. Pray for God’s provision over their family and ministry.

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:19

4. Protection and safety

Pray for your missionaries’ safety and protection. Ask the Lord to protect them against illness, injury, and danger.

The LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. – Psalm 121:8

5. Joy in adversity

Our strength comes from the Lord’s joy! Pray that the joy of the Lord will sustain your missionaries in the face of adversity.

Bible verses about missions and evangelism

The spreading of the Christian gospel, or message of salvation through trust in Jesus Christ, is referred to as missions and evangelism.

The Bible teaches that all believers are called to spread the gospel and make disciples of all nations.

The apostles and early Christians were engaged in spreading the gospel in the New Testament, often enduring hostility and persecution.

Nonetheless, they stayed committed to spreading the gospel of salvation to others.

Evangelism, or sharing the gospel, is the obligation of all Christians, not just professional pastors and missionaries.

Believers are encouraged to convey their faith in a calm and respectful manner and to always be ready to provide a response for their hope.

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and Samaria, and as far as the remotest part of the earth.- Acts 1:8

Jesus was always aware that he had come to die, but he was also aware that he would continue to minister in Spirit through his people for centuries after his body had died.

These final instructions were given to Jesus’ disciples just before he ascended into heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father.

He instructed them to wait for the promised Holy Spirit (Joel 2:28) before spreading the Gospel of the Kingdom to the ends of the earth.

It was critical to understand that Jesus was not sending them to preach alone or on their own authority, but that He would still be present in the ministry through His Spirit.

This would give them the authority to do what he did and say what he said. The Holy Spirit did, in fact, descend on the day of Pentecost, and none of them were ever the same, having been empowered for life and ministry.

And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.- Isaiah 6:8

The verse found in Isaiah 6:8 has also been set to music. This song, which is popular in churches and on Christian radio, asks the Lord to send us out into the world.

Give the song a listen if you feel compelled by the Holy Spirit to go into the world and spread the good news of Jesus.

It will bring you joy and give you a renewed sense of purpose. As mentioned below, don’t take the song’s lyrics or the words of the verse lightly.

You might not know what it looks like if you ask the Lord to send you. It may take you to strange or frightening places. It’s a significant verse, to be sure.

This is not a verse to pray mindlessly. After you pray it, the Lord will say, “Go,” just as He did to Isaiah in chapter 9.

It is said willingly and joyfully. The phrase “Here I am” reveals intent. Isaiah was saying that he was on the earth for a reason, and he wanted that reason to be the Lord’s.

He didn’t wait to hear what the Lord would say because he immediately followed it with “send me,” but instead wrote a blank check to the Lord, a universal yes to God’s plan for him.

What is a good scripture for missionaries?

Back home, missionaries require dedicated supporters. They require monthly financial assistance, ministry resources, and medical and technological equipment. They crave our encouraging words.

Romans 10:14-15

How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news.- Romans 10:14-15

This is a compelling reminder that individuals who have been called to proclaim the gospel have a unique task to complete.

It recognizes the power of God’s Word and the significance of preaching to people who have never heard of Him.

This text is a fantastic source of inspiration and motivation for missionaries all around the world.

Where in the Bible does it talk about missions?

The Bible mentions missionaries several times. Matthew 28:19-20 , where Jesus directs his disciples to “go and make disciples of all nations,” and Acts 1:8 , where he promises to empower them for testimony and service, are two crucial texts.

In his letters, such as Romans 10:14-15 and Colossians 1:23 , the apostle Paul also talks extensively about his personal mission activity and encourages believers to spread the gospel.

What Does the Bible Say about Missions and Outreach?

In this article, we will consider two critical truths about the Great Commission. First, we will consider the gospel’s primacy in all missionary endeavors.

To properly “do” missions, we must recognize the gospel’s importance, seek to comprehend its contents, and train ourselves to clearly proclaim it to others. Second, we will look at theological or doctrinal aspects of missions.

The Great Commission is first and foremost a theological or doctrinal undertaking. It is not a matter of sending missionaries, but of communicating God’s truth through human instruments.

As a result, the missionaries we send must work hard to present themselves to God as workmen who do not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.

What Does God Say about Mission Work?

God has a great deal of affection for people in need, and He wants everyone to be able to feel His love.

Throughout the Bible, there is a strong emphasis on mission work and aiding those in need. In Matthew 25, Jesus emphasizes the significance of assisting “the least of these” and feeding the hungry.

God desires that His followers serve others and make an attempt to assist those in need.

This can be accomplished through prayer, financial support, participation in mission trips, and the use of our time and resources to effect change in the world.

As a result, God encourages mission activity in order to effect beneficial change in the world.

Books of the Bible to Read Before a Mission Trip

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.- 1 Peter 4:10

This verse can be taken in a variety of ways, but it is commonly regarded as a call to use whatever qualities or abilities we have to serve and praise God.

This could be accomplished through outreach activities, like mission trips, in which one is able to witness to and serve others in need using their own gifts, whatever they may be.

As faithful stewards of God’s grace, we should use whatever talents and abilities we have to help others, both inside and beyond our own communities.

 Acts 13:47

This verse is frequently used to inspire and motivate people before going on mission trips.

It reminds us that God has invited us to bring salvation to the world, as well as to go out into the world and share the Gospel with those who have not heard it.

It also gives us a sense of purpose, as though we are doing something meaningful by stepping forth as God’s ambassadors.

Please share with your friends and loved ones. Spread the Gospel of Christ

Q1 2024 In Review and Q2 Market Outlook

Our analysts put the first-quarter performance trends for stock sectors, bonds, and funds into perspective—and look ahead with a fresh market outlook for the second quarter.

quotes for mission trips

The bull kept running in the stock market in early 2024. Even the threat of interest rates staying higher for longer didn’t trip up its solid performance. Stocks staged impressive returns in the first quarter, gaining over 10%, taking total returns to just shy of 30% over the last 12 months.

Stock prices pushed higher in the first quarter despite diminished expectations for Federal Reserve rate cuts in 2024. Gains were led by technology stocks, especially the companies seen as most likely to benefit from the artificial intelligence boom. Value stocks also joined in the rally. Meanwhile, the bond market’s performance was dented by the prospect of the Fed putting off rate cuts until the middle of the year.

As the second quarter gets underway, what’s the outlook for the stock and bond markets? What stock sectors are most attractive? What should investors do from here? We’ve gathered insights and perspectives from analysts and specialists about market performance, individual stocks, sectors, and mutual funds.

Q1 2024 Market Performance and the Economy

Investors went into the first quarter optimistic that a soft landing was in store for the economy, whereby a recession would be avoided, inflation would continue to improve, and the Fed would start cutting interest rates in March. Not only has the economy avoided recession, but it’s been stronger than expected. Meanwhile, inflation has again turned sticky. That means Fed rate cuts have been pushed out to at least June. Investors previously priced in five cuts in 2024, but expectations now center on three at best.

Here is our look at the big market and economic trends from the first quarter, as well as Morningstar’s market outlook for the second quarter and beyond.

Q1 2024 Stock Performance and Sector Outlooks

Which stocks did best in the quarter? Which have taken the biggest beating? Which sectors and stocks should long-term investors be looking to buy now?

Here we dive deeper into the performance of sectors and individual stocks, along with the outlook for the second quarter and Morningstar analysts’ top stock picks.

Q1 2024 Mutual Fund Performance and Top Picks

For mutual fund investors, the story has been the continued strong performance of funds focused on growth stocks. However, in contrast with other periods of growth stock gains, value funds have also perked up.

Bond funds had a rougher quarter, with those most exposed to changes in interest rates posting losses. Strategies heavy on corporate bonds and other credit investments fared better, thanks to the economy’s strength.
