Throughout any given day, it has become routine for us to expect to get access to anything and everything instantaneously, from ordering online with same day delivery to getting minute by minute news updates from around the globe. If it takes us longer than a few clicks or more than a few seconds to find and access what we want, we scroll or move onto the next thing.
While it does happen, for most missionaries, they don’t usually get to see instant results. Some of the greatest missionaries have toiled and laboured for decades before seeing the fruit of their efforts. Pray for those who share the Good News, that the seeming lack of results will not dishearten them. Pray that they are encouraged by the interactions and relationships that they are building in their communities. Pray that those they do speak with will be more receptive to the Gospel Message. Pray that we don’t place our instant expectations upon them
