How to Live Missionally in Your Community

When I begin to feel overwhelmed by the lostness all around me, God reminds me that He wants me not try to save the world.  I am to be obedient and start with just one person.  One person at a time is my mission field.  Look for your one and ask God to show you what to do.  He faithfully will.
