Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

I chose world Vision.

Their Mission is

World Vision is an international partnership of Christians whose mission is to follow our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in working with the poor and oppressed to promote human transformation, seek justice, and bear witness to the good news of the Kingdom of God.

Any thoughts on how the statement may be a motivation tool?

The statement in its setting likens their services to the ones of the Christian leader/king (Christ Jesus) who set a good record in helping the poor. By this statement, the organization and those interested in the activities  get encouraged that a  service like the ones offered by Christ will be offered around the globe.

Did it set the direction for the organization?

Yes it does. By the clause "whose mission is to follow our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in working with the poor and oppressed" The mission statement spells out the direction the organization is bound to take in carrying out its activities.


Could it be used to communicate the mission to the volunteers and employees?

The statement in its setting up bears a summary  of the activities the organization is involved in. It contains all the activities carried out by the organization. It can be used to communicate the mission.
