We've been talking on the board lately about people falling away from their Christian beliefs, turning their backs on God, and their difficulty of finding meaning in life.
It was uplifting for me to see that missionaries are coming to western countries to evangelize people and bring them back to God, God's Word, and the Christian lifestyle.
For centuries, the West sent evangelists to Africa, Asia, and South America to preach the Gospel, plant churches, and create Christian communities where none existed.
Pew Research predicts that Africa will be the most Christian continent within about 40 years.
Poor, developing countries that once benefited from Western missionaries coming into their cultures have started sending missionaries of their own back to the rich and increasingly irreligious West.
Between 2010 and 2015, the number of African missionaries jumped 32 percent to over 27,000. Korean missionaries jumped 50 percent to 30,000 in the same period. And the countries receiving the lion's share of these missionaries are Brazil, Russia, and--wait for it--the United States.
Psalm 121:1-2 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
