Missionaries know:

. . . how to connect without words.

. . . how to graciously (and gratefully) eat whatever is put in front of them.

. . . how to take cold showers.

. . . how to sleep in all sorts of circumstances.

. . . how to make the hours on a long flight pass.

. . . more than just their native language.

. . . how to make a faraway place feel like home.

. . . how to pack light, while bringing all the essentials.

. . . how to improvise.

. . . how to love the “unlovables.”

. . . how to pray through their problems.

. . . how to rejoice with the joyful and . . .

. . . how to cry with the sorrowful.

. . . how to get around in places where they don’t speak the language.

. . . how to raise a family in another culture.

. . . how to make friends.

. . . how to depend on God for everything.

. . . how to eat, travel, and live cheaply, without sacrificing the important things.

. . . how to tell you about their faith.

If you need to know how to do anything, ask a missionary.
