Duane Elmer polled people all over the world about their attitudes toward Western missionaries. What was the reaction? “If missionaries didn’t think they were better than us, they might be more successful.” In cross-cultural ministry, the last thing we want to do is offend people from other cultures. Unfortunately, our acts always express dominance, paternalism, racism, and greed, even though we don’t mean it.
Raising help as a ministry worker can be a difficult challenge. However, it does not have to be frightening. It’s not about money or calling for donations. It’s about trusting God to take care of you. He’s given you a vision for ministry, and now it’s up to you to share it with others. Your duty is to pray and work diligently to find those whom the Lord has already chosen to invest in you and your ministry. God has completed His mission. It’s now up to you to finish yours.
The Insanity of God chronicles the personal and lifelong experience of an average couple from rural Kentucky who believed they were going on a typical missionary pilgrimage, only to find out that it was anything but.

Cold climate vs warm climate culture

In the current political environment of conflict between Islamist regimes and Western governments, essentialist views of Iran and Iranians have proliferated in the West. The dynamic evolution of Iranian identity that occurred in the years following the Constitutional Revolution (1906–11) and the anti-imperialist Islamic Revolution of 1979 is not reflected in such perceptions. Despite the Iranian government’s adamant opposition to Western policies and strict adherence to religious values, Iranian film and literature represent a conflict between a nostalgic pride in Persian culture and an evident obsession with more Eurocentric modernity. By putting together essays on poetry, novels, memoirs, and films, Mannani and Thompson set out to examine the contradictions surrounding the ongoing formulation of Iranian identity. These include both canonical and lesser-known books, as well as works of literature written in English by diaspora writers.
