Mr Wu is a graduate of Stanford who thought he would be a missionary. Instead, he helped to design really inexpensive solar light bulbs–and now sells them across Asia and Africa.
Missions was never meant by God to be a program of the Church: missions is the DNA of the Church. The Church was commissioned by Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit to be his witnesses locally, internationally and to the ends of the earth. Missions therefore can be engaged in and through a Church congregation, in and through a missions agency, in and through a non-profit entity, as well as in and through a business.
