Why They Are Here

Have you been on any mission trips? Traveled? I’ve been to only a few countries. But I have pretty much lost count of how many nations are represented by the recently immigrated people I have met here on the Peninsula. There are tens of thousands of people from dozens of nations, in the Bay Area. They are here, and they have not yet heard the gospel. The door is open right now for us to reach out to Muslims and many others from all these nations with the gospel. That is why they are here.

Give us your heart for the nations,
let us be light to the world,
use us to declare Your salvation,
to the people of the earth.
May we be moved by compassion,
let us know Your love for the lost,
Lord use us to lead them to the cross.
Father, here we are,
standing in Your presence,
send us forth,
to lead them to the cross.
Heart for the Nations, by Martin J.Nystrom and Gary Sadler

Our heart, our desire,
is to see the nations worship.
Our cry, our prayer,
is to sing Your praise to the ends of the earth;
That with one mighty voice
Every tribe and tongue rejoices.
Our heart, our desire,
is to see the nations worship You.

Our Heart, Our Desire, by John Chisum and George Searcy
