Go in Christ's name.  Matthew 28:19

Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and

of the Holy Spirit. Time is growing short. Jesus stated in John 4:35, “Don’t you have a saying, ‘its still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.”
