Remember missions isnt just for third world countries. Also dont forget... it's not necessarily an either/or situation. I like to say it's a yes/ and :) We are to serve locally and abroad...wherever an opportunity should arise...wherever the Lord shall lead.
Im a husband to Tonya, father to my 3 kids and a church planter. I pastor Church at the Creek in Anderson Creek NC and oversee a small network of churches called Open Arms International Ministries.
