The church is sent into the world to continue that which He came to do, in the power of the same Spirit, reconciling people to God.  Jesus said, ‘As the Father has sent Me, I am sending you’.  No one can say; ‘Since I’m not called to be a missionary, I do not have to evangelize my friends and neighbours.’

There is no difference, in spiritual terms, between a missionary witnessing in his hometown and a missionary witnessing in Katmandu, Nepal.  We are called to go – even if it only to the next room, or the next block.
