Dear FCF Family,
In the attached article, Bob Buse reminds us that we are “sent ones.” Whether we travel to a different culture or across the street, we are anointed and appointed to take the message of the Gospel of Christ into our world. Our identification as sent ones compels us to cross boundaries and borders.
David Brainerd (April 20, 1718–October 9, 1747), a missionary to the Native Americans, had a fruitful ministry among the Delaware Indians of New Jersey in Colonial America. He wrote, “Here am I, send me; send me to the ends of the earth; send me to the rough, the savage lost of the wilderness; send me from all that is called comfort on earth; send me even to death itself, if it be but in your service, and to promote your kingdom.”
