Many are saying “good riddance” to 2020 and hoping that the New Year will be much better. There is no doubt that the work of world missions took a terrible hit last year, just like the work of God suffered here in the US. The question is, what are we going to do about it this year? Jesus has not rescinded His commandment to evangelize the nations. If we draw back, hide out, or sit still, we are accepting Satan’s clearly stated plan for missions, “But that it spread no further among the people, let us straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name (Acts 4:17).” Perhaps you are looking at the mission field (and you ought to be) and all you see are closed doors. However, God may be saying, “This is your time and opportunity to prepare.” BBTI is not locked down! Our next class begins on August 13th. You could sit where you are and hope, pray, and wait, or you could sit in our classroom and prepare while you hope and pray. Time spent acquiring Advance Missionary Training is not time wasted, but time wisely invested!
