Be a Missionary

My grandson is a missionary. He wanted to tell people about Jesus, so he went to Kenya. Then my grandson heard that people in Liberia needed to know about Jesus, so he went there. He is now helping start a church in Liberia.
Before Jesus went back to heaven, He told His followers to go everywhere in the world and tell them the Good News about God’s plan of salvation. Our Bible Reading today tells us that some of Jesus’ followers were being persecuted. So they moved to other places. Then these followers became missionaries in new cities.
When the church in Jerusalem heard that there were new believers in Antioch, they sent Barnabas to help them. Barnabas encouraged the people by saying, “Always be faithful to the Lord. Serve him with all your heart” (verse 23b).
My grandson and Barnabas went to different places to tell people about Jesus. You can be a missionary, too — right where you live. Tell someone about Jesus today!
