6 Ways to Reach God’s World

God has called his people to go and make disciples of all nations (“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,” - Matt 28:19). Therefore what involvement can you play in the Great Commission? Could it be that God is calling you to the mission field to reach the unreached? Yet, if God has not called you in this way, do not consider yourself excluded from this mission.

Just as there are many different roles in our church; such as being hands, eyes and feet, we can also each fill the many different roles in God’s Great Commission; through

AUBURN…MISSION IN SYDNEY’S BACKYARD - Christal Cheung

Christal, where did you go on the 28th April, 2012?

I went to Auburn with a team to become aware of Muslim mission. It was an opportunity to meet some of the locals, take a tour of the Turkish mosque and become more educated on one of the biggest world religions.

Why did you go?

I’ve grown up in a Christian family and so I was never fully exposed to other religions. I had recently wanted to broaden my knowledge of this area as it would assist me in speaking to my Muslim friends about the Gospel. I wanted to go to experience Muslim mission first hand and this was the chance to experience it.

What was the most memorable aspect of the trip?

I will never forget the tour at the local Turkish mosque. The Muslims are as passionate about what they believe in as we are in our faith especially our tour guide. However, it pained me so much to hear that they are constantly living in fear of how they will never know for sure if they are to go to heaven no matter what rituals they perform.
