In this discussion I want to ask you to ponder that in this world there are over 6 billion people. Our Creator, Lord of majesty, our God, knows the names of each one of them! In fact, He knows us better than we know ourselves. He will leave us alone, if we want, to live our own lives, we can even deny Him, if we choose. Or, He will rescue us, if we ask Him.  God is in the rescuing business.
 
Some fascinating info: Some say there are more Christians outside the church in the US than in regular fellowship, meeting at church weekly. It’s not hard to believe in today’s world. Why is that? How many are so tired of regular church?   We will die if we are not in fellowship with other believers in the days ahead. Why do so many feel wounded by their former church? Why have so many turned their back on the church? People are tired of “double speak”, yet people want to see God, to experience God.
They would love to say, “now, I believe”. A life poured out, emptied, makes room for God to shine. What will it take for multitudes to say "now, I believe"? It is not more eloquent preaching, nor more talking to, nor more of man's traditions. Jesus was radical, but more importantly, He obeyed His Father. Lord, teach us to hear and obey the Spirit of God. 
 
I challenge you to join us on an “encounter”.  The worst that can happen is that you will end up serving some one and helping some one who is needy and hungry.
 
I want to give you 7 reasons to leave the US.  Some may say, “yeah, with the war in Iraq, crime, threats of terrorism, and all the messes we’re in, sure, I would love to leave.” Well, that is not what this is about. 
 
            First, let’s put some things in context: of all Christians in the world, American Christians make up around one percent! We are not the only show in town, guys! It is a big world in terms of culture and in terms of the diversity of God.
 
The same old approach our predecessors took in regard to missions won’t cut it anymore, plain and simple. Some say that American missionaries actually may do more harm than good. I have seen many US teams feel really special when they fly into town in another nation and a thousand or more get saved. The first few times I saw that was really, very cool. But, when we go in with just a little bit of Christianity, and while salvation, by faith, in Christ Jesus, is the greatest miracle, if we leave town soon after, without getting the new brothers and sisters plugged in to fellowship, we may have actually done more harm than good. Bob Weiner, one of the great evangelists of all times, says “that a little bit of Christianity is like a vaccine, it keeps you from getting the real thing!”
 
The Great Commission is still in effect though. We are to go and make disciples in all nations. Some say there are more Christians alive on earth than in Heaven, if so, then something big is about to happen! Something really, really big!
 
Mark 16:14-20 is a key scripture we use often at CMM.
 
And John 20:19-23 “Peace be with you....As the Father has sent me, I also send you”
 
Who do we live for?   
 
I would ask you to read 2 Corinthians 5. Paul wrote “We have as our ambition, whether at home or absent, to be pleasing to Him. The Love of Christ controls us. He died for all, that they who should no longer to live for themselves but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf. God reconciled us to Himself through Christ, and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.” 
 
Reconciliation with Father God can be in many forms, and one of the surest, quickest way to experience reco nciliation is going on a mission trip. That intense one-two week adventure is part of the reconciliation process in restoring us to the Father. Let me explain.
 
At CMM in the last 8-9 years, I know of there have been over 2,500 people, many of them young people, who have gone on mission trips outside of the US and many of those have been on more than one. 
 
I believe 100% would say that it was a life-changing experience for them, that they did not come back the same. You often end up doing things you never thought possible. You could encounter situations you never thought you could or should endure.
 
           On any mission trip, you must remain flexible, sensitive to the Holy Spirit. You will have plans, an outline, a schedule, but remember, that much of Jesus’ ministry that we read about, where signs and wonders and miracles occurred, happened as a result of interruptions and obedience. Be prepared to be interrupted. When the Holy Spirit moves on you, phooey on your schedule! Be prepared to be interrupted, did I already say that?
 
You could be in situations where you have no choice but to trust in God, to rely on His strength, not your own.   Your expectations get blown out of the water and you are forced out of your comfort zone. PPPPPPOPPP! Like a baby coming out of his or her Momma, PPPPPPPOPPP! Get ready to be birthed into your destiny. True heartwashing occurs when you go serve! Let that waterfall of God's love wash over you, by His Spirit, and your own problems often melt away. When you forget about yourself and focus on the Father ’s heart, your life has new priorities. Try it! People will tell you that, when you come back, you will never be the same, and they will be right!
 
So, if you want comfortable, stay where you are. 
 
Here we go, the 7 reasons to leave the country.
 
#I. IF you go your view of God will explode.
 
A town leader in another land once said, “We need to meet each other from different lands, because without our cross cultural fellowship, we both stay fixed in our own cultural views of God.” “When we meet and share our lives, we discover that God is greater than either of our cultures .” “ He is not a tribal God or a village God, or an ethnic God, not white, black, yellow, or brown. He the transcendent, multi-faceted, God of the universe!” He is outside of any box, in fact, what box?
 
It is in our nature that we believe that the world revolves around our country, our culture. That makes us prone to worship a God who looks like us, and talks like us. When we visit other peoples and tribes we see that He is a God of diversity and many beauties. He really is Lord of all nations! Hearing the testimony of Hindus and Muslims in Asia, or Quechua Indians in Bolivia, or Quechee Indians in Guatemala, or Jews in Spain or Central America, or Israel, or Palestinians, Jordanians, Brits, Canadians, whatever, has given me a fresh view of the universal application of the good news of Jesus Christ, and to hear of the testimonies of miracles and healings and deliverances wh en we share the gospel and they believe! Just as in the book of Acts 1:6-8 When asked if that was the time for Him to restore Jerusalem? And Jesus said to them “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
 
 
Oh, to be in a place where it is the first time they hear of Jesus and the Father and the Holy Spirit and to see what He does! What a blessing I have had to witness the Gospel told for the first time, and people listening to what you are saying and the wind of the Holy Spirit moves and their expressions confirm to you, that indeed, this is a God moment, a moment when lives are changed for all eternity! Healings come, countenances change, lame walk, deaf hear, His joy released, that is what we live for.
 
 I pray that our ears here in this church will hear and see like it was the first time and to perceive the Holy Spirit in a fresh way like it was the first time so that we would believe and receive! I pray often, Lord, help me to believe the way you want me to believe, the way you made me to believe. Help me Lord, to see others and even myself, the way You want me to see.
 
#2. You will view possessions and material things differently. OK you know in your head that many parts of the world are poorer than here. But staying at home keeps such knowledge at an intellectual level. You can keep it at a distance emotionally. But, until you witness it with your eyes firsthand, until you smell it, you do not experience it. Go to a poor bario, an impoverished village, a home that has lived under communism for 40 years like in Cuba, or a compound where the ditches are full of raw sewage and you see children walking through it like India, or better yet, mothers doing laundry in streams where the sewage runs in Bolivia, you will confront your head knowledge while your heart is breaking right then, right there. The hardest of hearts will soften when confronted with the injustice, the oppression by the enemy of your soul, in the world today. Many can no longer live for themselves when they see the souls suffering for lack of clean water, clothes for their children, education for all. God wants us to change that. He has a plan. May our lives line up with His strategies.
 
You are confronted then with the challenge of 1John 3:17, “If any one has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him?”
 
On the positive side, confronting materialism helps each of us recognize what really matters. I have been blessed to see in Cuba, one of the poorest nations on earth, churches packed out, and people standing outside looking in the windows, hands raised, praising our God! Rejoicing and singing at the top of their lungs, singing with such joy that challenges us here in America. The joy of the Lord, our strength, is real, and when you don’t have material distractions, you sense it more!
 
We are blessed to bless others. I have seen Americans, including myself, begin to wonder if our own faith was simply a nice topping on a materialistic lifestyle? Even though we possess so much more, our faith was not as deep nor re al! 
           
Now, when I go to stores, I really see I don’t need most things, I would rather send the money overseas where God multiplies it so much more. I have seen many who have been on such trips re-evaluate their faith and their lifestyle. When I think of a full time pastor can be supported for $35.00 per month in the Philippines, $50.00 a month in India, or $100.00 a month in Guatemala, or a church can be built for only $6,000. that will reach generations of hungry disciples with the simplicity of the Gospel and the profound love of God, it is hard to live for self.
 
            #3. Your perception of hardship will change. Does it seem like your life is tough enough already? A cranky boss, an overpriced house, a bad hair day, new car p ayment, or too many bills and not enough paycheck got you down? 
 
Try walking for six hours to get a bucket of water to cook with or driving on roads so bumpy with rocks for hours upon hours that you get saddle sores. Try cooking a meal just as the lights go out or going to take a shower and just as you turn the faucet the last trickle of the day comes out and there is no more water until tomorrow or no more power until the government decides to turn it on again.
 
Stay in a pastor’s hut, 6 feet by 8 feet with a leaky roof, no bed, just a bedroll, taking a bath and doing laundry in a creek with half the village watching. I have been to many pastor’s houses in the last few years and many have one picture on their wall, many don’t even have a car, yet their life reflects one of mercy and compassion, and great love for their sheep.
 
Let me tell you about two young pastors in the Philippines who have to swim across a swollen river to get to their churches in the rainy season and all for a dollar a day, but they do it with such commitment, as if their lives depended on it! They put their Bibles and Sunday clothes in a garbage bag and swim across a swollen river.
 
This verse in Ezekiel comes to mind, vs. 3:18 ”when I say to the wicked , you shall surely die, and you give him no warning nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. Yet, if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquit y, but you have delivered your soul.” These pastors believe it, do you?
 
Yes, you will see sorrow that you will never forget, and you will know the meaning in a new way of the scripture, “Those who sow in tears will reap in joy.” God’s Word encourages us to not grow weary of well doing or give up too soon.
 
#4. You will come back with a new view of Heaven.
 
Serving on a short term mission, cross-cultural missions trip foreshadows, the multicultural, multi-ethnic, church depicted in Revelations 7:9, ”After these things I looked, and behold a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb…” Oh what an awesome eternity lies ahead! We cannot comprehend!
 
When you worship in a different culture it helps you to experience the reality of Galations 3:28. “In Christ there is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female...” Our understanding of the creative diversity of God is enlarged. Praising on a mountaintop in Bolivia as they sing “open wide the gates and let the King of glory come in”, in Spanish, or being in a tiny church near the Nepal border of India and seeing them be slain in the Spirit as God is healing them, (with no one touching them), then saving them, or on a dirt floor of a church in Guatemala, seeing joyous youth with hands lifted high, helps one to understand the awesome grace of God’s forgiveness and gives you a real sense that we are of one body, the church universal, and to experience a deep anticipation of Heaven. 
 
Cross cultural worship gives you a taste of heavenly worship before you get there. This is a taste of Heaven, worshipping with many tribes, many tongues, glorifying and exalting our Holy Father. What amazement, what joy! His throne is open for you, come up here!
Your faith will stretch like never before.
 
Unpredictable situations, unfamiliar foods, being asked to minister when you are not prepared, or in areas where you do not have confidence, all these things force you to depend on God in ways you have not before. This is just where God wants you now, so He can do His thing in your life. 
 
Hudson Taylor, founder of China Inland Mission more than a hundred years ago , said, “Unless there is an element of risk in our exploits for God, there is no need for faith!” 
 
As for comforts and familiarity and wondering what it will be like on the foreign fields, even for a few short days, let me ask you a question, better yet, let me give you a question to ask Jesus, “ Jesus, how did you like living on earth?” Go ahead, you ask Him that.  Oh! “But for the joy set before Him, He endured the cross…Romans 12:2
There is an amazing joy that set before you when you see with His eyes. It comes with a heavy price. You can know Him more only when you know about His sufferings also. You don’t get one without the other, but when that joy, that peace, that overcomes the enemy, that can not be shaken, becomes real and unshakeable, then you see what He wants you to see. It’s ok, begin to open your eyes n ow.
 
Comforts and likes and dislikes and preferences fade in the light of His glory. Too many luxuries have become necessities for modern western man that if we are not careful, we may miss what God has for us. How about winding back the clock on your luxuries being necessities. Let your necessity, be Christ alone.
 
It makes you think of Hebrews 11, the faith chapter, Those men and women chose to do difficult things, not for immediate reward, but in faith that something good would result. One missionary wrote “I too have thought that if I obey God, I’ll be truly fulfilled…but running the race isn’t always fulfilling. Sometimes I have to hang in there, as an act of endurance, not for the blessing, but because God deserves it.” Perseverance, persistence, being committed to your c alling, being fruitful, faithful, and tough in the Lord, that is your duty.
 
Our God deserves it. 
 
We are to pour out ourselves as a living sacrifice, a drink offering. We are not our own once we are truly born again, we are a new creation….
 
#5 Your faith will stretch.
 
Serving cross-culturally will put you into a must-trust environment where you no longer are in control. Your prayers will intensify—whether for finances, safety, health, or communication, because you do not have the answer without God intervening. Why, in places like India and the Philippines a trip across town can be a re al faith building situation! Hard times help shape our character, to make us more like Christ. In acceptance, there is peace. Is there a price to pay? yes! Anything worthwhile has a price, just like being a parent, or anything else of value.
 
The universal body of Christ that is all over this globe is part of the same body, the same bride, waiting on the same Bridegroom! The fire that is burning here and around the globe is spreading through short term mission trips, through folks going into full time missions and ministry, and it is spreading through the use of technology. More souls are coming into the kingdom each day than ever before!
 
Reports are that there are 30,000 salvations per day in Africa, and 30,000 per day in China. We are messengers of the Gospel, we are ambassadors for Christ. As part of the body, we move among the body of believers bringing refreshing as we get refreshed. We bring discipleship as we get discipled.  The reciprocating action of getting blessed as we give blessings brings life in Jesus to the body and He is the head. 
 
These short term trips are like a blood transfusion. We see as we go to bless the fields they are hungry for the mature word of wisdom God blesses us here at CLI with and in turn we see the simplicity of the Gospel, with joy in the midst of trials, with peace in the midst of the poverty. God uses the interchange and the exchanges of these trips to enlarge our borders, enlarge our faith, and increase our faith levels. 
 
You may have heard me say it before that an American Christian writer was asked a few years ago why we see such miracles overseas and not in the west as much. He said, “because they believe the Word, they believe what you tell them”.
We will see change here in the West and I pray that we will not have to have serious calamities for that to change us so we finally get lined up with God.
 
Our faith is being stretched in this church to reach the nations. Psalm 2:8 says,” Ask of Me and I will give you the nations for your inheritance, and the ends of earth for your possession.” Do you believe He will do that?
 
CMM is becoming a vital part of the vision the Lord has given our Pastors and leadership and new ways are being explored to train for missions. Local, regional, national and international missions and evangelistic outreach opport unities are all around us. Organized, efficient preparation, and training programs are being drafted so that these trips are productive vehicles to bless the fields without causing dependence on our dollars and to provide safe travel while being obedient to God and insuring a life changing experience and many God moments on these trips. 
 
In Guatemala a new library in an old house has been purchased and 1,000 kids a day show up for VBS. A church is now planned on that land. $4,500 is needed to pay off the land. Three pastors in Coban, Guatemala need support of $100 per month per pastor.
 
Mobile Bible schools are being developed and five years ago the response to a missionary training program brought so many interested that we had to stop it. There were over 300 trained in one year and we could not handle it. That program is starting up again. And many of these Guatemalans are being called to Islamic nations where they fit in, and Americans are not welcome. 
 
One CMM youth group performed in front of 10,000 public school children in the largest sports stadium in Guatemala and it was the largest evangelical outreach ever in the public schools. We have been asked by the education minister of the government of Guatemala to come back this summer with a character counts, ethics class, to train the public school teachers.
 
CMM have helped to build churches in the Philippines where in 1995 they started with a home group of 15 and now have 32 churches and a vision for 45 churches by the end of 2006! $6,000 builds a solid, stucco cement block building with cement floor and a soun d system. 25 pastors of 70 total still need sponsors at $35.00 per month, for full time pasturing. What multiplication is that!
 
In India we are building a Bible School to train pastors in partnership with PG Vargis who has already planted 6,000 churches on his way to 7,777 churches in northern India by 2010.  
 
A medical team visited Guatemala last month and saw 7,000. In November, 50,000 are expected for this medical team. This team now travels on 4 or 5 key trips a year reaching hundreds of thousands with love, pure love and healing.
 
“Ask and I will give you the nations!”
 
These are the days to get involved. You are not too old, too young, too poor, nor too rich to be a part of the greatest move of God in all history. We are in the army of the Lord. 
 
In John 14:12 we can read, “ Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My Name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My Name, I will do it.” That settles it! What are we waiting for?
 
 
#6 You will be used by God in a way that you will know He is God.
 
He will send you somewhere you never thought you could go, or would go, and use you to bless others in ways you did not know existed in you or He would use you for, and He will change you in a way that you did not think anything could, and your heart will melt in ways that you did not know were possible, and He will call you to those new places that you only dreamed of, and some you never even dreamed of, and you will see He had His hand on you the whole time!
 
He called me to a hilltop in Cayo Coro, Cuba where almost 70 years before the father of Sidney Correll. Sidney’s dad rode a horse around Cuba asking God to show him where to plant a church and Bible School. God allowed me to view from a hilltop where they grow sugar cane, the land where God showed them to build a Bible school in the 40’s and then Castro took it all away from them in the early 60’s and by the grace of God, gave it back to the local Christian pastors, some of whom were imprisoned because of their Jesus, and had their churches sealed and boarded up for 25 years, yet they persisted and persevered. These men came to an American church and wept at the presence of God in the place and I heard them say to the Pastor “they did not want to dirty our carpet with our tears”. There is something awesome, something very special about God’s presence. 
 
And last summer these dear Cuban pastors were given permission to reopen their Bible school and they have 65 pastors in training and about 45 churches at present. God allowed me to visit that hilltop as the sugar canes were being burned away and the smoke cleared away seeing how He protects the remnant of His people.  
 
A nd I believe God will use me to win my cousin who stayed there all those years and as a college professor makes $20.00 per month, I believe he will come to know Jesus in a personal way as His savior. (this happened in May 2002 when my son Matthew went to Cuba with Ruben Fernandez and his youth pastor from Spain. I went in 1960 as a six year old and forty years later in 2000, and again in 2002,that is God!    
 
How will God use you? You may never know if you do not make yourself available. These are not the days to hold back, to think you are not called, or you are not worthy. I have news for you, you are not worthy, but because of what Jesus did on that cross you are made worthy and you can put on the righteousness of Christ right now. You need to know who you are in Christ Jesus and this is the place He has for you to find out who you are in Christ Jesus.< /font>
 
 
#7 You will learn that you can hear from God and know His calling on your life.
 
            God is speaking to us more than we know. You do hear from God, you just need to spend more time with Him to know the Shepherd’s voice.
 
In that concentrated environment for that seven or ten days or fourteen days,
or so, you will make friendships with others that will last a lifetime. You have heard of brainwashing, well this is nothing like that, I like to think of it as “heartwashing”. You will establish a bond that you never know in the beginning what it will be like, b ut there will be one or more, maybe not with everyone in the group, but with a few, that will bind your hearts together for ever.
 
And your heart will be knit to those who you may never see again, until you’re both in Heaven. Our prayer is that you will have time while riding or flying back where you have such an intense encounter with God that you may not be able to hold back the tears. May you have many tears of joy, tears of closeness with Him. He wants that from you.
 
            Even though you may never go again overseas, or the world situation changes where it becomes no longer safe, even for a while, you will have crossed over that river in your spiritual walk where you know there is no going back. Things will never be the same again. You will read the Word w ith new passion, new zeal and you will be ready to share this Good News when the Holy Spirit prompts you. 
 
You will discover things in those places where there is no phone, no clock, none of the normal everyday things, they are not present. You are in new territory, and your senses are soaking it all in, often it takes a week or two after you get back to assimilate all the Lord showed you during just a few busy days. You can’t wait to tell your friends what God did! And it probably won’t be like anything you imagined. What a God!
 
            Do you need a heartwashing? Today is the day of the Lord and He is prepared to meet you here in this place. If you want to know more about missions feel free to see me afterwards. Remember, Luke 24:47 says “and th at repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.”
 
The Christian life, the normal Christian life, with signs and wonders and miracles and hearing God and speaking with God through His Holy Spirit is the greatest adventure, the most exciting adventure of all eternity. Don’t let the world or the enemy tell you otherwise. May this trip take you to new heights, new depths, in the Spirit, and may you experience a refreshing touch, like a waterfall, from the Lord of the Harvest.
