Here’s what some missionaries say

Missionary Quotes

Send me anywhere, only go with me. Lay any burden on me, only sustain me. Sever any tie, but the ties that bind me to Your service and Your heart.       David Livingstone

Tell the students to give up their small ambitions and come eastward to preach the Gospel of Christ.     Francis Xavier

No reserves, no retreats, no regrets.      William Borden of Yale (Died in Egypt soon after having arrived – 1913)

God’s work done in God’s way will never lack God’s supply. If I had 1000 lives, I’d give them all to China.     Hudson Taylor

Expect great things from God, attempt great things for God.     William Carey

The Spirit of Christ is the Spirit of missions. The nearer we get to Him, the more intensely missionary we become.                                   Henry Martyn, missionary to India/Persia

Some wish to live within the sound of a chapel bell; I wish to run a rescue mission within a yard of hell.     C.T. Studd

The history of missions is the history of answered prayer.    Samuel Zwemer, missionary to Muslims

 “Not called” did you say? Put your ear down to the Bible and hear Him bid you go and pull sinners out of the fire of sin. Put your ear down to the burdened, agonized heart of humanity and listen to its pitiful wail for help. Go stand by the gates of hell and hear the damned entreat you to bid their brothers not to come there. Then look Christ in the face and tell Him whether you will join heart and soul and body . . . to publish His mercy to the world.                      General William Booth, founder of The Salvation Army

In encouraging young men to come out as missionaries, do use a word of caution. One wrong-headed, obstinate fellow would ruin us. Humble, quiet, persevering men; men of sound, sterling talents (though perhaps not brilliant), of decent accomplishments, and some natural aptitude to acquire a language, men of amiable temper, willing to take the lowest place, to be the least of all and the servant of all; men who enjoy closet religion, who live near to God and are willing to suffer all things for Christ’s sake, without being proud of it, these are the men. But oh, how unlike to this description is the writer of it!         Adoniram Judson of Burma
