  • “While women weep, as they do now, I’ll fight; while children go hungry, as they do now, I’ll fight; while men go to prison, in and out, in and out, as they do now, I’ll fight; while there is a drunkard left, while there is a poor lost girl upon the streets, while there remains one dark soul without the light of God, I’ll fight—I’ll fight to the very end!” – William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army
  • “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, 1881-1963, Missionary to Venezuela
  • “Missions is not about ‘What can I spare?’ The question is ‘What’s it going to take?’ Risk. Abandon. Sacrifice. Radical dependence on Christ. Everything. Are you passionately committed to God’s glory among all peoples?” – AsiaLink Worker
  • “Remember, 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.”
  • “Missions is not the ‘ministry of choice’ for a few hyperactive Christians in the church. Missions is the purpose of the church.”
  • “Missionary zeal does not grow out of intellectual beliefs, nor out of theological arguments, but out of love.” – Roland Allen, 1868-1947, Missionary to China
  • If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.”
    ― C.S. Lewis
  • "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, Latin American Mission
  • "All the money needed to send and support an army of self-sacrificing, joy-spreading ambassadors is already in the church." — John Piper
  • When James Calvert went out as a missionary to the cannibals of the Fiji Islands, the ship captain tried to turn him back, saying, "You will lose your life and the lives of those with you if you go among such savages." To that, Calvert replied, "We died before we came here."
