While White House policies are changing, a missionary's is not

If you're like me and can be a slightly meloncholic when the moment allows, you might have felt a little depressed the night of the elections or the following morning.  For me, I've followed the candidates quite a bit recently and am still a bit unsure of what Obama's plans are on a number of issues and if they're going to work.  It is obvious that he knows how to create momentum, cast some kind of vision, and get people to follow him.  
But the slight feeling of depression probably came from the understanding that more babies than ever in America may be killed in the very near future.  His comments to Planned Parenthood were pretty clear about what he planned to do immediately after entering the White House.
But our Lord's commands will never change, and neither will our job as missionaries to teach the Truth and share a loving Faith with everyone we can.  While our mission to change the culture was never any less important, it may have in this country just become a little more important - if that makes sense.
