(USA) — We begin today in the United States where the country founded on God is now a country in need of missionaries. That’s the word from American Missionary Fellowship‘s Lee Iseley (iyz-lee). “All around the world Christianity is the fastest growing religion. The only country where Christianity is not growing is America. And so, we’re discovering that America is the new mission field. And, I think it’s not just apathy, but it’s a sense of not understanding the seriousness of reaching our land with the message of Jesus Christ. We’re seeing that God is bring the world to America.” Iseley says American Missionary Fellowship is retooling their evangelistic efforts. “We have committed ourselves to reaching the children and the young adults for Christ because the statistics tell us that 85-percent of people who come to Christ, come to Christ before they’re 25 years of age.” Iseley is recruiting young Bible school graduates to help in this effort.
