Dr. Ralph Winter once said “All men are equally lost but not all men are equally needy” We affirm that all men are equally lost… and we would add that all men are equally loved by God. And yet in light of roughly one-third of the world with little to no access to the gospel perhaps its ok to stop and evaluate where the need is greatest. One concept we have found helpful is that of “triage”. If you have medical training and you come upon a bus accident with over 40 injured individuals you would know that your first task is to triage (evaluate and prioritize) who needs help first. In the case of world missions, what are some of the factors or elements we could/should consider as we do triage to determine where the need is greatest?
