Celebrating racial ethnic contributions to transformative mission O n the following pages, you'll catch a glimpse of the rich legacy and continuing service of racial ethnic mission workers—men and women of color called to love God and love their neighbors at home and abroad. Since the beginning of Presbyterian international mission 180 years ago, these and other Presbyterian Christians have paved the way for mission from the U.S. to the ends of the earth, and from the ends of the earth to the U.S. eir unique perspectives have helped transform the church from colonial mission to mission in partnership, the missio dei—the mission of God. While we've changed our mission practice over the years, what has not changed is the 180-degree transformation of faithful mission servants who encounter Christ and accept the urgent call to share God's love with others throughout the world. We give thanks to God for their calling and commitment, and we give thanks to you for your ongoing prayers and support of them and their ministries.
