But when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, you will receive power and will tell people about me everywhere — in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. (Acts 1:8 NLT)
Jesus told his disciples that they would have an ever-expanding influence from their community to the ends of the world. God's desire is for people to become disciples, and our strategy is to serve God by serving others in our community, our state, our country and other continents.
