EPISODE 37: Our interview with two long-term missionaries from Southeast Asia
In this episode we interview two long-term missionaries from Southeast Asia. We discuss what led them to the mission field, what life is like overseas, and what advice they have for those considering a life on the mission field.
>> We began this episode by asking questions about what let them to the mission field. We asked questions like:
- How did you get involved in missions?
- How did you make the decision to serve long-term? And were you scared to make that commitment?
- How did you decide where to serve?
>> We also asked questions about their life overseas:
- What’s your average day look like when you’re overseas?
- Do you have a local community that you have been able to “join” or do you feel like it’s you two and then there’s this community that is around you?
- How do you approach ministry overseas? What does it look like in your situation to share your faith?
- Do you feel like you’re making progress? How do you stay motivated when progress is slow?
>> Finally, we asked them about the advice they have for those considering long-term mission work:
- What do you wish you knew before you became a long-term missionary?
- How can someone know if God is leading him or her to become a long-term missionary?
- For those that don’t feel like serving overseas long-term is in their future, how can those people support people like you overseas? What do you need from us the most?
