Give a weekly lifestyle mission challenge for outside of the church – goal – make it part of your life

The evangelistic life

When things seem hopeless in the world remember we are the hope for the world

  • Can’t change the world but you can change one life/one family – generational impact

 

Ideas:

Show clips from missionary movies, talk about the history of Christian mission in tough places – highlight disciples in tough places – David de los Santos – what’s it like to spread the gospel in Sri Lanka

Ryan and Melissa share about Poland
