El Vista supports missionaries at home and around the world. Through generous giving, we currently help support missionaries in places such as Brazil, Canada, Haiti, Japan, Zambia, and several others. We also support the Bible Tracts ministry, Jewish Evangelism, and our Bible College students. Frequent missionary speakers and an annual Missionary Conference in October keep our hearts concerned for the lost around the world.
Then saith he unto his disciples,The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.Matthew 9:37-38
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:Matthew 28:19
And he said unto them,Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.Mark 16:15-16
On a missions trip to China, Joe asked Yongni, a Chinese national what he would do first when he got to Heaven. "That's easy," he replied. "I'll look for Jesus and thank Him for giving His life so I could be in Heaven. After that I'll find the missionary who told me about Jesus. I'll thank him for leaving his home country and his family and friends and coming to a strange culture to tell me the good news of the Gospel. I will find every person who ever gave to support that missionary - every man who gave his hard-earned money, every child who emptied his piggy bank, every widow who sacrificially went without, every Christian in every church who gave in any way to support the missionary who brought me the Gospel. I will search Heaven until I find every one of them."
