Jesse Armstrong is currently employed at the Missionary Training Centre in New Zealand, and thought he was pretty ‘missionary savvy’. That was until he met the missionaries in San Diego, California.
These missionaries didn’t have recognisable name badges and they certainly didn’t sound anything like any of the missionaries he trained back in New Zealand. These, very interesting missionaries were speaking Arabic and are assigned specifically to teach Arabic speaking ‘friends of our faith’ in approved missions.
“Check this out…I’m sitting here watching missionaries being taught the Arabic Language. They are teaching the Chaldean people who descend from Abraham! These are the people whom the Saviour walked amongst in his day…How cool is that?!?! They told me that there are less than 100 of them [Arabic speaking missionaries] around the world”.
