He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?" - Romans 8:32

You Are Not a Missionary If...

  • you just live in a different country
  • you are just learning a different language & living in a different country

  • you are just employed or supported by a missions sending agency

  • you are just building friendships/relationships

  • you are just doing a lot of administrative work & strategic planning

  • you are just learning the ins & outs of a new culture

  • you just learn all about the new culture & adjust flawlessly to it & thrive in it

  • you just serve in deed only with no words (clean water, english teaching, sewing classes, food distribution, etc...ad nauseum)
But you are a missionary if by words & deeds you are sharing the Gospel cross-culturally in a land that is not your home. And that's bare bones. For the Bible shows me so.

I just thought some clarity would be helpful.
