Here’s an article by Eric Simmons on evangelism and the mission field:

“Many Christians have been giving a lot of attention to places like the ’10/40 window,’ for which we should praise God.  We should also keep praying that the Lord would send more workers into overseas harvest fields.  But in our own post-Christian society in America there is an emerging unreached people-group.  They’re not in a foreign country.  They live right down the street.”

Close your eyes.  Imagine yourself standing in the middle of a wheat field.  The wheat is up to your chest as far as the eye can see, it’s white for harvest, the sun is shining, and there’s work to do.  We all have a mission that God has given us in a field that he has prepared for us.  You’re in a mission field even now; find it, prepare for it and labor in it.
