Snipits from training...

This is a bunch of random snipits from training that I loved!
  • Just because you are a missionary does not mean you need to "tough it out." "If you're sick, you're sick! Tell us, we have doctors."
  • My goal should be to make Kiev, Ukraine, home, in order to live bi-culturally.
  • It is my responsibility to understand the Ukrainians and to minister in ways that make since to them.
  • God calls families, He does NOT break up families.
  • Being incarnational does not equal being stupid! We should go as far as we can to identify with people without violating our conscience and our sanity.
  • The gospel is always offensive, we want to offend for the right reasons.
  • The most important person in the church is the one NOT in the church
Random great moment: As I was leaving the airport in Atlanta, for Rio, the man checking my ticket, looked at my passport, looked up at me, and said, "With a smile like that, I would never stop smiling." I said thank you and boarded the plane.
