What Happens When You Read Missionary Biographies?
Do you think, “I could never be a missionary like that!”
Do you get excited and want to go to the mission field?
Does it whet your appetite to learn more about missions and what it takes to become a missionary overseas?
Does it challenge you to live a life sold out to Christ?
Does it challenge your faith?
Remember you don’t have to travel anywhere to be a missionary. You can be a missionary right where you are in your own home, in your own neighborhood, and in your own circles you travel in every day. It doesn’t require you to travel overseas to share the gospel.
Here is a list of some great missionary biographies that you won’t be able to put down once you start reading them:
