    Re: how missions did during tough economic times. In China, there was a revival that took place in the late 20’s and early 30’s. This revival was key in raising up indigenous leaders – leaders such as Watchman Nee and John Sung.

    A few books have been written about it. One was by Marie Monsen, who was a woman missionary who was used powerfully to both pray for and later catalyze the revival. The book has recently been republished. The title is “The Awakening”. It’s available at:


    Also, there are two other books (probably out of print) about the revival both titled “The Shantung Revival”. One is by C.L. Culpeper and the other by Mary K. Crawford. You may be able to find them through a used bookseller such as abebooks.com.

    Re: Retirement

    Brigada’s latest post featured a good one, a theme that I know we don’t look at a lot. Retirement. I am a 55-year-old nondenominational missionary with virtually nothing in any such fund. I relegate my future to what Billy Graham once said: the preacher preaches until he drops. However my wife does not settle for such a simple answer. Neither do I have one. I am working to stay in shape so I can preach too until I drop. There must be more to this issue.

    Thanks for posting this, Mark
