But these are also perilous times. Pushing back the frontiers of darkness that have enveloped whole people groups is fraught with difficulties. Sickness, burnout, and death are all real possibilities for missionaries - and in certain settings almost inevitable. Make no mistake about it: obeying the Lord's command to disciple the nations has and always will be costly. It is risky business.
The current effort to reach the world's unreached requires hardy folk who are willing to work together, make sacrifices, become vulnerable, and serve the Lord whole-heartedly in the midst of stressful, challenging situations. It also necessitates a concomitant, cooperative effort to support and nurture the missionary personnel involved in these new endeavors. Both are needed as we seek to put greater closure on the Great Commission.
