Misplaced Ministry Priorities

I’m astonished at the people who will spend $4000 for an overseas mission trip so they can simply stack cement block…and the trip only lasts about one week! But the same people won’t even bother to invite anyone from their own community to attend church with them. What's that all about? Just think what $4000 could do in regards to outreach in your own community instead – one hundred percent of the funds go straight into the field without the overhead expense of travel, food, lodging, or an airline ticket - and with longer lasting results.

The Great Commission begins in our own backyard.

Acres of Diamonds! by Russell Conwell, it's a good read! One of his comments at the end of his famous speach was
"remember this, that if you wish to be great at all, you must begin where you are and what you are"
