MKs on the Mission Field

Volume 14 Number 3 (Spring 2005)


In This Issue

The years of childhood are sometimes difficult ones. The awkward days of adolescence are not always the proudest memories for many. In recent years, more than ever, the goal of fulfilling the Great Commission is a collaborative endeavor, involving children’s efforts as well as those of adults. A consequence of this trend is increasingly evident, as a focus of mission literature on personnel issues has gradually shifted from the adults who are working in the mission field to the children who live in it.

As an adult, it is not easy to find one’s own identity, even with many definitive parameters such as careers, families, and other personal choices. As a child, it is even more difficult, especially in the mission field, when children inadvertently become an extension of their parents’ identities. MKs often face the ambiguous issue of making their parents’ beliefs their own. BKs (children of business people) often misinterpret the role of religion in their lives and seem to separate career and religion, as if one cannot exist in the world of the other.
