Let me begin by saying that I offer up a prayer for everyone on this board when I see one request. I have a nagging question that I would like to get other peoples advice or opinion about. Our church and many others that I'm aware of send many missionary's to the Caribbean nations,South American countries,AFRICA,INDIA and other Indonesian countries and have for centuries. However, I'm not aware of any other countries sending missionaries to California,Illinois,Michigan,New York,New Jersey to top the list of areas were they are needed. Is it because our great country has more faith,more church going folks, or these other countries respect Americas right,obligation and faith based strength to take care of our own? Why have these frequently visited countries not established after century's of being evangelized to, developed their own faith based strengths,leaders and followers?
