What are you doing TODAY to get to your goals in 3-5 years?
The journey of 1,000 miles begins with you getting off your butt and taking action.
Waiting on the Lord does not involve laziness or inaction. We are to be vigorous, aggressive and incessant as we wait. This waiting involves preparation, research, and prayer.
If you want to go into missions, what are you doing right now about it?
Suggestions: (1) pray about it, (2) talk to your elders about it, (3) take the Perspectives Course, (4) Read current missions books, (5) read about the needs of the world, (5) Research the doctrines and philosophies of ministry for various mission boards (start with World Team, www.worldteam.org),
(6) realize that you will not leave the field a week after you decide for missions....the process of becoming a missionary takes several years.
There are many preliminary mountains to climb before you even reach that final summit.
You had better start preparing now.
