What do you think of when you hear the word missionary? Do you think of a super-spiritual someone who has dedicated his or her life to serving in a particular foreign country for years to preach the gospel and plant churches?
Well, those guys are awesome! But Christ really has called each of us as Christians to minister, to help the oppressed, to preach the gospel - essentially to be a missionary wherever we are. Regardless of where we live, how we earn our paycheck, or how capable or incapable we feel, we are to be emissaries of Christ.
In other words, that "we" in the following verse pretty much means all of us: "We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal though us." (2 Corinthians 5:20)
And that's what this manual is all about. Each of the nine sections includes a story, a summary with scripture references, and suggested action items for the reader.
