They loved the Lord Jesus extravagantly!
They had a consuming passion for lost souls
They tithed their people as well as money to overseas missions.
They believed that all of them were called, all of them prepared and longed to go. They dreamed of the privilege.
A good number of the youth did not marryâ€”all for the missionary callâ€”and it was an honorable thing among them.
They raised their children for missions.
They sent them out mature and stable in their early twenties.
They knew when they left they could be dead in six months.
Each mission church became a sending church, and the work expanded quickly.
They didnâ€™t believe in missionary heroes. It was a conviction among them that there was nothing special about the one who went; they were all ready to go too.
