Mission sounds exhausting. But Tim Dearborn reminds us that

“Mission was never intended to be an exhausting human enterprise. Mission is our privileged participation in the lifegiving action of the triune God.”[1]

Rather, as we serve God in one place, the repercussions can reverberate further than anything we ever imagined. He encourages us as he speaks of…

“… the late Mother Teresa, for example, only cared for about 200,000 people in Calcutta, but all 18 million people in that city knew that life could be different because of her example”[2]
