Why does a missionary drive thousands of miles, speak in dozens of churches, endure months away from “home,” take on several travel over-nighters, etc., etc?
The reason for the missionary is typically a tremendous passion to share with local churches the work that the Lord has opened the door to do. This passion is so intense that the missionary is willing to take risks and endure challenges in order to get to the “other side.” For us specifically, the work of training nationals for ministry is one that, in our minds, is exciting and critical for the future of the local churches in Argentina. We are terribly eager to get to the field.
