8. DO YOU PRAY FOR MIS­ SIONARIES FREQUENTLY, SEL­ DOM, NEVER ? 158—frequently, 162—seldom, 16—never, 3—undecid­ ed; 9. HOW OFTEN DO YOU PRAY THAT GOD WILL SEND OUT MORE MISSIONARIES? 16 —frequently, 211—seldom, 58—nev­ er, 54—undecided; Id. HAVE YOU EVER PRAYED THAT GOD WILL SEND YOU OUT AS A MISSION­ ARY WITH A HOME OR FOR­ EIGN SOCIETY? 175—no, 1 5 3 - yes, 11—undecided. Many young people don’t think that Matthew 9:38 applies to themselves in a 'per­ sonal way; 11. HAVE YOU EVER CONS IDERED BECOMING A HOME OR FOREIGN MISSION­ ARY? 110—no, 217—yes, 12—unde­ cided. We can’t say that teenagers haven’t thought about becoming mis­ sionaries. But how seriously have they thought? 12. ARE YOU WILL­ ING TO BE A MISIONARY IF THE LORD WANTS YOU? 19—no, 278—yes, 42—undecided. Praise the Lord that they are willing! That’s the first step. But what a lot of will­ ing ones there are who never get to the field! 13. HAVE YOU EVER RAISED YOUR HAND OR COME FORWARD DURING A MISSION­ ARY SERV I CE TO INDICATE YOUR WILLINGNESS TO BE A MISSIONARY? 172—no, 161—yes, 6—undecided. In our church serv­ ices, we like to give people a chance to give some visible evidence of their decision for Christ, but we do not often give a call to come forward for missionary service. I believe pastors ought periodically to ask for definite commitments for missionary service, or else ask a missionary to do so. 14. IF YOU DID, HOW LONG AGO WAS IT? Very few could remember, but those that did indicated it was in the last five years. 15. IF YOU REMEMBER, WHO WAS THE SPEAKER? Here again, few re­ membered unless it was very recent­ ly. The speakers they named were often the same ones, perhaps indicat­ ing that only a few missionary speakers press for a decision. 16. DID YOU FEEL A DEFINITE CALL TO MISSIONARY SERVICE AT THAT TIME? 108—no, 1 0 2 - yes, 129—unanswered. A lmo s t a third of those questioned have felt a call to the mission field. If this holds true in our churches generally, what a vast number of recruits we would have if we could get them to follow through! 17. WHAT FIELD DID YOU FEEL CALLED TO, IF ANY? Most indicated no special field. Of the few who indicated one, it was generally a foreign, rather than a home field. 18. DO YOU STILL
