Jesus instructions to the first disciples were to "go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." (Matthew 28: 19-20) The plan was to start where they were and move out to the whole world. He directed them to in Acts 1: 8 be his witnesses in Jerusalem (those in close proximity, family, co-workers, classmates, neighbour) Judea (those living with-in your city, town or province) Samaria (those of a different culture or ethnicity) and to the ends of the earth (those who are living in other countries).
