Are you a missionary? Although we typically think of missionaries as those who travel to foreign lands to share the gospel with people, the simple fact is that we are all called to the work of sharing the gospel. Furthermore, as HeartCry Missionary Society points out, indigenous missionaries have huge advantages over foreign missionaries since they are more plenteous, less expensive, culturally literate, fluent, and avoid nationalistic biases. What if you altered your thinking just a little? Rather than seeing your role as a member of a church or a participant in a community of faith, what if you thought of yourself as an indigenous missionary? How would that change your life?
