Economy May Shift Missions From Overseas to Domestic





"It's better to get people doing missions with a $500 to $1,000 trip than having to continue to cancel $3,000 trips because people can't afford to go." —Bill Mitchell, global impact pastor for First Baptist Church of Orlando, Fla., who has had to suspend a number of overseas short-term mission trips due to declines in giving. According to Mission Data International, overseas trips have declined 15 percent since 2008 while inquiries regarding domestic trips have increased. [christianitytoday.com, 6/10/10]
