Migration and Mission and Andrew Walls

The great new fact of our time—and it has momentous consequences for mission—is that the great migration has now gone into reverse. There has been a massive movement, which all indications suggest will continue, from the non-Western to the Western world. […] The increase in population growth will be concentrated in the areas least able to sustain it, leading to irresistible pressures for migration.

Andrew Walls, 'Mission and Migration: The Diaspora Factor in Christian History' in The Journal of African Christian Thought, Vol 5:2, Dec 2002.
