Vision Baptist Church has 135 official members. Of those members, 22 are missionaries. That equates to 16% of the total members. Those missionaries are going to 8 different countries on 5 different continents.
And at first, 16% doesn’t seem very impressive, but consider this: if 16% of the world’s total population were missionaries, that would be over 1 billion missionaries. One billion.
That’s one out of every six people, give or take. And with all those missionaries on the foreign field, Vision has given over 450k to missions. Yes, that’s almost half of a million dollars. $450,000. That’s enough to buy any of the following:
1 very nice house
10 new cars
45 in ground swimming pools
450 designer suits
And while it might seem foolish to send so many church members around the world, and spend all that money when we don’t own a building, the truth is this: we’d be foolish not to send and spend. Missions is the heartbeat of God’s word, and it is the heartbeat of Vision Baptist. So as we look to send more missionaries to the field, and give more to missions, we would love to have your assistance as we strive to get the gospel unto all nations.
