The 21st Century Way to do International Missions
I have learned so much about missions in the 12 years I have been chairman of CGM. The first thing I have learned is that you must be flexible if you are to reach as many as possible for Christ. Just when you think you have a plan, the mission field changes. Today it is not just the career missionary that is interested in going to people to share Christ, but it is often people who will have only one experience in a cross cultural mission.
The single most impactful thing on missions today is new technology. You can now reach most of the world via the internet. I was just in Israel where Israeli Arabs were Skyping their Bible study into both Saudi and Egypt. Who would have ever imagined that even 5 years ago. And, they were doing it without the benefit of $10,000 cameras. Just an IPad and a broadband connection.
