An observation I have about American missions is that, although it is less common to see dire physical need, the spiritual, mental, and emotional needs are prevalent almost everywhere we turn. People are hurting, lonely, and without hope. My encouragement to you is to treat your hometown like you would if you were overseas on a mission trip. Pray, be intentional, be bold, and be READY for opportunities that are right in front of you. As 1 Peter 3:15 says, "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect."

This verse has been my prayer every day here in the States, and God has been answering it! I got to share about Jesus with my banker, individuals at coffee shops, and others I see running errands (such as grocery shopping, buying Christmas gifts, and even at AT&T). The truth is...people are EXTREMELY OPEN. Throughout all of my Gospel conversations with individuals, not one has flipped a table over and left. Not one said they felt judged, preached to, or forced to listen to me. In fact, a common response has been, "Wow, you're the first Christian I have met that is willing to answer my questions, has listened to what I believe, and has had an open conversation about religion with me." 

MY FRIENDS, the harvest is RIPE!! I didn't do anything crazy. I literally just listened, engaged in conversation, and got to know the strangers around me. If you respect others and extend kindness, more often than not, they will reciprocate. It's time for disciples of Christ to set down their phones, engage in conversations, and be the salt and light that this world needs! We should look different. We should be approachable. There should be "something about us" that stands out.
