5 Qs

Recently, Justin Bullington published an article on the Every Last One blog entitled "5 Questions I'd Ask a Missionary Friend Before I Supported Them." 

They are: 

  1. Have they been trained for cross-cultural ministry?
  2. Have they received biblical education?
  3. Will they learn the language and the culture first?
  4. Do they teach the Bible chronologically?
  5. Are they making disciples or making dependents?

The right answers to this questions are, I believe, self-evident. And, what Justin is getting at is this basic idea: "Are serious enough about this matter that you are willing to, first, discover what will be required of you; and, second, prepare yourself to be as equipped as possible to accomplish that which is required of you?"
