America: The Hardest Mission?

Four Presbyterian churches in New Jersey will be holding a lecture series about how the United States has become the "hardest mission field."

. . . . Regarding this year's topic about America as the hardest mission field, Good told CP that he believed a major factor for this was American materialism. "I think America can be a difficult mission field because of material abundance. We currently have a member doing bomb retrieval work in Laos," said Good. "The people he interacts with have much less than the average citizen here, and yet they have more simplicity and peace. We have so much, and sometimes that stuff (whether possessions or experiences) can get in the way of what is most important."
