We know from the Canadian Evangelical Mission Engagement Study, released in November 2016, that fewer people in Canada want to serve overseas full-time and only a small percentage of people – career or short-term workers– go to the Middle East. We are not concerned about this because Jesus said it is the Lord of the Harvest who sends people into His fields.
However, we have been asking the Lord the following questions: How do You want us to recruit? How do we avoid being an employment agency? How do we prepare recruits? Where do You want people to work?
