Tensions around being missional locally and being senders globally

I come across pastors and leaders that describe their churches as being "missional" and that God has brought people into their communities that need to be reached. They have made a decision to pull back on their global mission support to help their people "be missionaries right here."

I don't mean they have somehow localised mission into their interior, "private" life-- that would make little sense.
