Modern Missions in a Globalized World: Looking back to the 400 years of silence between Malachi and Matthew it is interesting to study and see how God used that time to prepare the way for His Son. It was not silence at all but rather a time of great noise and activity moving the world to be a place where the stage was set with roads, language, open borders; all for the purpose to propel the gospel into the world. Today we find ourselves at a time just like that. Like never before we can travel on "roads" to enter countries in just hours. These "roads" are in the air and don't require the sacrifice that missionaries once went through to carry the gospel into all the world. The ease of travel has opened many new opportunities. In today's world it seems like many borders are closing to US missions efforts. However, there is a great opportunity in crossing these borders using new methods. Technology has created a way to do ministry like never before. Just ten years ago we could have never imagined networking leaders and churches in different countries by just setting up a screen and a modem. We can now help train, encourage and mobilize leaders who are thousands of miles away. We can create a website that will open up resources to train men and women for ministry. No matter if they are in the jungles of Peru or the cities of Mexico, a globalized world is a world of opportunity. We live in a time like no other, prepared by God to move the church to reach a lost world.
