Greetings for Dear Missionaries

It is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" (Romans 10:15)
God's calling comes first before becoming missionaries. What does a missionary do and what qualities should he have?
The duty of missionaries is to spread the gospel of heaven to all the nations. Not everyone can be a missionary and be qualified for evangelism, the spiritual work.
Jesus said, "Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it." (Matthew 10:39) People who are afraid to die are not worthy of the Lord. We should spend our lives for truth when the faith of the Lord is opposed by the devil or the world. Since missionaries often have to make life and death choices, they are required to have guts and courage to work for God.
It is known that James Hudson Taylor, a British missionary to China, contributed to the development of today's Chinese church. He worked with might and main for the Chinese church and his entire family even died in China. How can we not be moved by the missionary spirit?
Apart from being courageous, missionaries should have a strong will.
It is missionaries who preach the gospel and save souls. It is they who present the gospel with their blood. It is their blood that inspires us.
Greetings to our dearest missionaries! May God give more dying souls to them. May they understand the will of God and spread the gospel of God in their words. May their hands strengthen the church of God. May their feet step through the gates of their enemies.
May God who is infinite be with them!
