should i stay or should i go?

the sermon at my church today was piped in via video and it was a big push for our overseas missions to the 10/40 window of the unreached. it actually used that song line should I stay or should I go now, by the clash, and used Isaiah 6 where god asks "who shall I send?" and Isiah answers "send me." the whole message was to like pray seriously for which we should do, that if we were to stay then pray for what we should do here.

this is something that has been heavy on my heart for a long time. I finished seminary with an MDiv and am not really doing much with what I have learned. I tried to open a church, and that didn't work out for a number of reasons, and now I am not doing much at all. I tried to join a local ministry that is doing outreach to aliens here, but I went through a lot of changes to apply, and have not gotten much of a response from them. they just send me advertisements to come to their outreaches in emails.

I have seriously considered going on a missions trip, but my health would not allow it. I am on meds that are expensive and a problem to obtain, and I need to go to a neurologist and have tests regularly. I would have real problems in a 3rd world situation, but I am doing fine here. so I am stuck staying here, but I am not sure what I should do here. I have been a part of a few small group missions at my church, and I feel like I am needed in them, but I feel I could be doing more.

what more can I do god?

Hi Rocky.

If you really are needed then you should consider exercising your skills.

We call those countries 3rd world countries, but they don't use clay-buildings as hospitals and witch doctors.

I've been there and their doctors are well educated. Specialised medicine might be hard to get but it's due to local prices. The local population can't afford it.
