Lottie Moon on laborers

"The harvest is very great, the laborers, oh! so few.  Why does the Southern Baptist church lag behind in this great work?… I think your idea is correct, that a young man should ask himself not if it is his duty to go to the heathen, but if he may dare stay at home.  The command is so plain: “Go.”   

-- Lottie Moon (November 1, 1873, letter to H.A. Tupper)
