Bitten by the Missions Bug

Missions is in my blood. I grew up with a mother and a grandmother who loved missions and it has always been a part of my life. Even though my love for God and missions started at a young age, becoming involved in missions requires no set age or way.

People both young and old can pray for missions, give to support missions, and participate in missions close to home or far away. Once you have been bitten by the missions bug, praying, giving, going, and serving are things you will continue to do forever as you develop a missions lifestyle.

  • Discover new members.
  • Organize groups.
  • Teach churches.
  • Spotlight entry points.

For me, stepping out on faith and encouraging others to get involved in missions by moving beyond their comfort zone has taught me so much and helped me grow in my faith. I love seeing the reactions of people who are on their first journey with God to the missions field. To see how they interact with and love on others the way they never thought they could do. To give God glory for getting them to the very place they thought they would never be. To hear in their own words how God has changed their lives forever.

Susan Bartholomew is married and has 2 girls. They are involved in many children/teen activities and they love missions, most of all serving together as a family on the missions field both at home and abroad.
