"People who do not know the Lord ask why in the world we waste our lives as missionaries. They forget that they too are expending their lives ... and when the bubble has burst, they will have nothing of eternal significance to show for the years they have wasted."—Nate Saint
Known as the missionary pilot who flew with fellow laborers into the midst of the Auca Indians, a tribe inclined toward killing without restraint, Nate Saint* uttered these words not to condemn those who didn't approach missions the way he did, but to bear Holy Spirit conviction against those who believe devoting one's life to the furtherance of the gospel to every nation, tribe and tongue is a waste of time.
Every nation (my associates and my enemies -- grand and unseen, petty and provocative), every tribe (those outside my echo chamber), every tongue (the thousands in my path every day who reflect cultural differences) ...
Lord, let me not waste a minute more ...
