I think missionaries don’t receive as much credit as they need to. After all, most missionaries leave their homes to go into other countries to spread the Good News. Some people find themselves in cultures that are vastly different from the ones they left.
In particular, there are those individuals who go on missions to places where there isn’t a drop of running water in sight. The people they are trying to reach congregate themselves as tribes with rituals and customs we in the developed world may find strange, unusual, and downright horrific.
The modernized world would say these people do not need religion to mess up their way of life. They’ve existed like this for a long and don’t need our help. Yet Jesus commanded us to go into the entire world and preach the gospel. Why?

We all are different from our culture in many ways and very stereotypical in other ways. The stories in this book all fall in line with those I write in the following genre:
