Attitude

Recently, I have been thinking about the effect “attitude” plays in a missionary’s life.  We send missionaries out to challenging places, and I believe a massive part of their success can be attributed to the way they view God, each other, and their circumstances (in other words: attitude).  Some seem to be discouraged about everything. ...

That Wednesday I was talking... Continue Reading →
