A mission in this aspect is known as carrying out a divine order.a. It could be spiritual, bringing deliverance to an ethnicity or country b.

”.
This is the full package of redemption.Today, many mission activities are only governed by fun of sightseeing and the study of cultures. This is a deviation from the command of Jesus Christ. Every true mission goeswith a divine backing that brings result in the hand of the missionary (Mark 16:20).4. Establishing the people in truth and creating of order (Acts 15:1, 2, 25-29; 16:4, 5)

Focus on the reason for the mission.3. Deal wisely with laws of the land4. Understand the culture of the people to enable the word of God have positive effect onthe people.One of the ways that the gospel has spread today is by the training of heavenly calledministers from different cultures or nations and commissioning them to evangelize their own people.

Thismethod still remains the most successful method of spreading the gospel and establishing people in the faith today.
