Mission Statement

Our Mission Defined
Last Call Out Ministries

… Among Seventh-day Adventists there is a great zeal–and I am not saying there is any too much–to work in foreign countries; but it would be pleasing to God if a proportionate zeal were manifested to work the cities close by. His people need to move sensibly. They need to set about this work in the cities with serious earnestness. Men of consecration and talent are to be sent into these cities, and set at work. Many classes of laborers are to unite in conducting these efforts to warn the people. {NPU Gleaner, April 13, 1910 par. 9}

The Mission and Purpose of Last Call Out Ministries is basically twofold based on two specific needs that we have either felt or witnessed that aren’t to our knowledge being met by other ministries at least to the extent that it is our purpose to fulfill.

In a nutshell, those two specific needs are these:

The need for many Bible Workers and Medical Missionaries to go into the large cities of America from outpost centers to work side by side doing door to door work helping people with their physical needs and giving the last warning message to a dying world.

The need to assist God’s people who are heeding the call to move out of the cities into country locations by providing training in practical lines, to be more independent from the energy systems of the world and assisting the transition from city to country living so that they can go forward quickly in doing whatever work God has called them to do to hasten His coming.

In meeting these needs, Last Call Out Ministries is committed to carefully studying and following Spirit of Prophecy and Biblical counsel in all our endeavors as well as working closely with the local churches, conferences and other entities of the organized Seventh-day Adventist church.

It is Last Call Out’s purpose to meet these two stated needs in the following ways;

The need for many Bible Workers and Medical Missionaries to go…

Obtain country properties near (within an hour or so of) the large cities of America in which to establish outpost centers with simple housing for the Bible Worker/Medical Missionary teams to retreat to as needed, much as did Enoch who went into the cities to preach and teach and then came back to his mountain home to recharge in preparation to go again into the cities.

“The cities are to be worked from outposts. Said the messenger of God, “Shall not the cities be warned? Yes; not by God’s people living in them, but by their visiting them, to warn them of what is coming upon the earth.”–Letter 182, 1902. {CL 30.2}

“…As did Enoch, we must work in the cities but not dwell in them…”{10MR 241.1}

… More and more, as wickedness increases in the great cities, we shall have to work these places from outpost centers. This is the way Enoch labored in the days before the flood, when wickedness was rife in every populous community, and when violence was in the land. {Ms107-1906}

To establish small training/health centers at these outposts for the purpose of supplemental training for the Bible Workers and Medical Missionaries to increase their usefulness in working as a team in witnessing and in treating the sick. These centers would also be a place for the Bible Worker/Medical Missionary teams to come together to relate experiences and encourage each other. Those with health problems who need more extensive treatments than can be given in their homes could also be brought to these centers to receive treatments for their diseases and training in gaining and keeping their health as well as spiritual instruction.

“Let men of sound judgment be appointed, not to publish abroad their intentions, but to search for such properties in the rural districts, in easy access to the cities, suitable for small training schools for workers, and where facilities may also be provided for treating the sick and weary souls who know not the truth. Look for such places just out from the large cities, where suitable buildings may be secured, either as a gift from the owners, or purchased at a reasonable price by the gifts of our people. Do not erect buildings in the noisy cities.”–Medical Ministry, pp. 308, 309. (1909) {CL 30.3}

“…Companies (should) be organized and diligently trained to labor in our important cities. These workers should labor two and two, and from time to time all should meet together to relate their experiences, to pray and to plan how to reach the people quickly, and thus, if possible, redeem the time.”–Manuscript 21, 1910. {CME 13.4}

Connecting Bible Workers, Medical Missionaries and churches together, giving financial support where needed and sending Bible Workers and Medical Missionaries out two by two in teams to work the cities. Providing materials and other necessary resources to aid these teams in their work. Financial support for worthy individuals to receive training at the various training schools for Bible Workers or for Medical Missionary training.

“Every gospel worker should feel that the giving of instruction in the principles of healthful living is a part of his appointed work. Of this work there is great need, and the world is open for it.”–Ministry of Healing, p. 147. {CME 28.5}

“The medical missionary work is a door through which the truth is to find entrance to many homes in the cities.”–Counsels on Health, p. 556. {CME 15.1}

“…The workers should go forth two by two, that they may pray and consult together. Never should they be sent out alone. The Lord Jesus Christ sent forth His disciples two and two into all the cities of Israel. He gave them the commission, “Heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.” {MM 249.2}

The need to assist God’s people who are heeding the call to move out of the cities…

Training seminars in practical lines for those who have, or who are wanting to move out of the cities. These would include such things as; gardening, food preparation and preservation, building and construction, water systems, construction and use in alternative energy systems, auto repair and many other practical ways of becoming less dependent on society.

“If they ever become industrious and self-supporting, very many must have assistance, encouragement, and instruction. There are multitudes… for whom no better missionary work could be done than to assist them in settling on the land and in learning how to make it yield them a livelihood.” {MH 192.2}

“…To desire to bear your own weight, and not to eat the bread of dependence, is right. It is a noble, generous ambition that dictates the wish to be self-supporting. Industrious habits and frugality are necessary.” {2T 308.1}

“… It is God’s purpose that the rich and the poor shall be closely bound together by the ties of sympathy and helpfulness. Those who have means, talents, and capabilities are to use these gifts in blessing their fellow men.” {MH 193.1}

Tiny houses/small simple inexpensive homes built on our outpost centers for use as transitional housing for those who have moved out of the cities and are looking for country properties. This gives opportunity to get a taste of country living while learning from those who have already made the move so to avoid some of the mistakes and pitfalls others have made. The income received from these rentals would in part, help to support this ministry.

“…Who are the real owners of houses and lands? Is it not God? He has an abundance in our world which He has placed in the hands of men, by which the hungry might be supplied with food, the naked with clothing, the homeless with homes…”{CS 185.1}

Supply the labor for those who have purchased country property and wish to build a simple home, by sending a team of volunteers to work with them in the construction of their home in much the same way as ‘Maranatha’ sends volunteers to build churches and schools.

In God’s plan for Israel every family had a home on the land, with sufficient ground for tilling. Thus were provided both the means and the incentive for a useful, industrious, and self-supporting life. And no devising of men has ever improved upon that plan. To the world’s departure from it is owing, to a large degree, the poverty and wretchedness that exist today. {MH 183.3}
