“I plead this day for those who cannot plead for themselves, namely, the great outlying masses of the heathen world.
Our existing pulpits are tolerably well supplied, but we need men who will build on new foundations.
Who will do this?
Are we, as a company of faithful men, clear in our consciences about the heathen?
Millions have never heard the Name of Jesus. Hundreds of millions have seen a missionary only once in their lives, and know nothing of our King.
Shall we let them perish?
Can we go to our beds and sleep, while China, India, Japan, and other nations are being damned?
Are we clear of their blood?
Have they no claim on us?
We ought to put it on this footing–not, ‘Can I prove that I ought to go?’ but, ‘Can I prove that I ought not to go?’"
---- Pastor Charles Spurgeon
