One of our Live Dead Team Leaders recently said, “This is costing us more than we expected, but not more than we’re willing to pay.”
Missions among unreached peoples is a costly enterprise. It’s not just the financial cost. It’s the spiritual, the emotional, the social, and the health costs that weigh the heaviest.
The enemy has held many peoples under his dominion for centuries. When missionaries begin to proclaim Jesus to those bound in darkness, the enemy does not turn loose easily. It’s a battle. Our team make-ups consistently shift. It’s the nature of what we do.
That Team Leader has experienced incredible health obstacles, visa issues, spiritual attacks, and sleepless nights.
They don’t run; they stay.
Please pray that Jesus will raise up more Team Leaders willing to pay more.
