You Will Be My Witnesses - Part 3

You will be my witnesses Part 3
Jesus gave his first century disciples a mission found in Acts 1:8  “and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
This week we have seen that we are to reach out those who we have a relationship with, (Jerusalem) those in our vicinity who we may never naturally socialize with (Judea, and Samaria). Today we will look at how we can reach “the ends of the earth.”
When Jesus said this His disciples had limited means of transportation and communication. Today we can reach the farthest points of the world by plane in a matter of hours. We have mass communication, cell phones, and the internet to go and reach the world. It has never been easier to fulfill your mission.
We are not all called to go to Haiti to teach little orphan children about the love of Christ like the St Peter family or C3’s college group Encounter, but all of us can participate.  
Here are a couple of ways. The first is to contribute to our Annual Mission Auction on Nov. 15th.  At C3 we support dozens of missionary and outreach ministries through this one night of giving. I am asking all of you to buy a ticket and donate an item.
Another way all of us can participate is through Operation Christmas Child shoe box mission. For 15 years we at C3 have been filling shoeboxes with toys and school supplies to reach the neediest of kids around the world.   This year C3’s ladies quilting group have sewn little dresses, britches and crayon rolls to pack in the boxes. Bring your boxes AFTER the Mission Auction from Nov 16th -24th.  
The Great Co-Mission we have been given is to share the good news of Jesus Christ in our close circles as well as where it is a stretch of our comfort zones even to the ends of the earth.   
Your pastor and partner in ministry,
