The inspiration for this month started with some friends who had come over to visit us while we were still abroad. They told me a tale of another young missionary, (we'll call him George for safety sake) in a nearby part of Asia. The story went that although he was working hard, preaching the gospel steadily, although people were listening and responding, the money just wasn't there for him to come back for a second year. At the time it was looking like he would have to go home.
"George" is going to tell us his tale in his own words. He'll use his own name and the country where he works but he will be speaking carefully about the work he does. You'll notice some "code words," and if you have any questions about what it is he's talking about, please email us as maidservantsofchrist@gmail.
