GREAT QUOTES

ON THE

GREAT COMMISSION

Those who have gone before us in missions have left us with their wisdom and the example of living out the Great Commission
that Jesus gave to His disciples after His resurrection and before His ascension into heaven:
As I wander from village to village I feel it is no idle fancy that the Master walks beside
me and I hear his voice saying gently, “I am with you always, even unto the end.”
Lottie Moon (1840–1912)
With God, anywhere. Without him, not over the threshold.
John R. Mott (1865–1955)
