It was about local action with global perspective. I'm hoping it was recorded in print or otherwise so that we all can benefit.

Isaiah 49:6 (MSG)
6 He says, "But that's not a big enough job for my servant— just to recover the tribes of Jacob, merely to round up the strays of Israel. I'm setting you up as a light for the nations so that my salvation becomes global!"

That would be really beneficial to those of us who wanted to be there but just weren't able to be.
