After this the Lord appointed 72 others and sent them two by two ahead of Him to every town and place where He was about to go.
What you just read is record of the first short-term mission trip in church history. That’s right! Short-term mission trips started with Jesus! He chose a number of His first disciples and sent them out ahead of Himself to prepare His way. They were to bring God’s Kingdom (healing) and proclaim His Kingdom (Gospel). And what they saw God do through them literally left them in awe! Well, guess what church? He is still doing the same thing today! You and I have the privilege of bringing the healing and salvation that come through His name to people in need all over the world! And, if you GO, I believe that you too will be in awe of God and your life will never be the same! So, will you be one of the new 72?
