God calls upon all Christians to be involved in the missionary task of taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world. Beginning with a handful of disciples Christianity has become the most widespread religious faith in the world. Each follower of Christ is challenged to pass on the life-changing story to the next. Missionaries have permeated cultural, linguistic and social barriers. Many of them have paid an immense price for their faithfulness. Many of the missionaries, martyrs and ministries in this devotional are familiar, but a great number are not well known. They form an honor guard of heroes that are inspirational for young and old.
