If you are like me, you have probably wondered “why do missionary’s get a whole year of vacation time while most people that support them only get a week or two?” One way to explain it is… we are like politicians. No we don’t get paid to lie! In fact we pride ourselves on being very honest with our supporters. Politicians have two jobs, being a good politician, and every few years campaigning to get re-elected.
As missionary’s we campaign/go on home assignment to get re-elected by our supporters to go back to the field.
We have not stopped working we just have a different role.
My name is Stephen Clement, missionary to Brazil, and I approve this message.
