When you see a missionary coming home broken in body….

These are just a few interesting quotes I came across from To Every Tribe. Hop over there and take a peek at what God is doing in previously unreached lands…

william careyRemember, when you see a missionary coming home broken in body and weary in soul, it isn’t the privations or dangers or things he’s done that leave a deep hurt; it’s the things he couldn’t do that break his heart.

I have seen, at different times, the smoke of a thousand villages – Villages whose people are without Christ, without God, and without hope in the world.

Robert Moffat, 1795-1883 Pioneer Missionary to South Africa

 

We do not truly understand the gospel if we spend all of our time preaching it to Christians. The gospel is a missionary gospel.  It is a communication of Good News to people and in places where the name of Christ is unknown.

David Sitton, President of To Every Tribe                        

 

I know enough about Satan to realize that he will have all his weapons ready for determined opposition.  He would be a missionary simpleton who expected plain sailing in any work of God.

James O. Fraser, 1886-1938, Missionary to China

 

At the moment when I put the bread and wine into those dark hands, once stained with the blood of cannibalism, but now stretched out to receive and partake the emblems of the Redeemer’s love, I had a foretaste of the joy of Glory that well nigh broke my heart to pieces.  I shall never taste a deeper bliss till I gaze on the glorified face of Jesus Himself.

John G. Paton, 1824-1907, Pioneer Missionary to New Hebrides
