FAQ: Why are you going to Africa??

One of the most common questions I get is "why are you going to Africa when there are people in the US who don't know Jesus?"

This is a really great and brain scratching question.  Firstly, it's important to understand the attitudes behind that question - why are you spending so much money when you could stay home, why do you care more about the world than you're own neighborhood, wouldn't it be better to let people take care of their own people? I come from a church that is very community focused and many friends ask the same questions.

A teammate of mine from Côte d'Ivoire just wrote a fantastic post on this very thought - check it out.
