This article explores three historical components of Pentecostal theology that influenced Pentecostal missionary women by examining missions after the Pentecostal revival of the early twentieth century. This article presents four case studies of such Pentecostals and their responses to Pentecostal experiences and missionary careers for ongoing theological consideration about what it means to 'Go into all the world' as a Pentecostal. According to this study, the Pentecostal experience and reliance on the Holy Spirit was a significant part of Pentecostal women's call to and empowerment for missions, in facing the challenges of missionary service with Pentecostal eschatology, and in following the biblical mandate and narrative to serve in the power of the Spirit with gospel proclamation and accompanying 'signs and wonders'.
