I am reminded of George Müller who at the age of 70 went out on a mission in 1875, traveling 200,000 miles (No planes) for a period of 17 years preaching to over 3 million people. He decided to devote this part of his life to a world-wide ministry of preaching and teaching, sharing his Christian faith. Leaving the orphan homes he had begun years earlier, under the direction of his daughter Lydia and her husband James Wright, he traveled to the United States of America four times, India twice and, on two further occasions, Australia and the Colonies. In addition, George Müller preached in 42 countries, including China and Japan.
From 1875 to 1892 Müller was almost constantly engaged on missionary preaching journeys. Throughout his Christian life he always set out his aims and objectives before embarking upon God’s work, and this new area was no exception. Müller wanted to share with a wider audience, the truths he had discovered about God. Further, he desired to encourage Christians to become lovers of the Bible and test everything by the Word of God. Another of his aims was to break down the barriers of denominationalism and to promote, as he put it, “brotherly love amongst Christians.”
