A "Nu" Prayer Request

There's a new prayer request out for the Nu people (yes, shameless pun) from Today's Prayer that popped up on Thursday the 21st. It's an update from a previous request that I wrote about (here) a couple weeks ago.
NU OF COLOMBIA (noo). Thank you for your prayers for the national missionary family who works with the Nu people, asking that the Lord would provide for them to be able to return to a major city for a time of counseling and renewal and that they would hear and respond to God's leadership concerning the areas of their life that need to be examined and submitted to His correction, healing and victory. Praise the Lord that He has provided housing and financial sufficiency for the needs of this family during their time of counseling and healing in the city. Please continue to pray that God will show them what they need to see and hear from Him during this time of rest and renewal. Pray that they will have good times as a family and learn what God has purposed for them.
Talking about "national missionaries" has got me thinking. Who do you consider to be a national missionary? There are plenty of pastors who are living away from where they grew up in a city or area that is foreign to them in the States. Though I have a full-time job, I am heavily involved in our Hispanic ministry at church. Am I a missionary?
I don't know, but I do know that we are all called to be on mission wherever we're at, including our homes, schools, and workplaces. Pray for the national missionary family in Colombia, and remember to pray for the national missionaries you know in the States as well (or wherever you happen to live).
