 Baptists urge missionaries


Baptists urge missionaries

Even though Christians continue to be targets of violence in hard-to-reach areas of the world, they need to go no matter what the cost.
That was the message at the Southern Baptist Convention this week.
This year has been a deadly one for the Southern Baptist International Mission Board. Missionaries Larry and Jean Elliott, Karen Watson and David McDonnall were killed in Iraq. McDonnall’s wife, Carrie, was critically injured.
She told the convention why they went to Iraq.“Make no mistake, David and I went to Iraq out of God’s call on our lives, to see His name glorified among the nations,” she said. “That includes the hard and violent places.”
Many Christians say it’s unwise to enter places like Iraq to share the gospel. McDonnall disagrees. “My Jesus wears scars on His body from the violence He endured. How can we sit back and say, ‘I can’t because it’s too hard’? For my Jesus, it’s the least that I could do.”
