Missions Incredible
South Korea sends more missionaries than any country but the U.S. And it won't be long before it's number one.

Has anyone seen this article in the current issue of ChristianityToday? I saw the cover of the magazine but I haven't read the article yet. Here is the link: http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2006/003/16.28.html

If you read it before I get around to it let me know what think. If other Koreans have a tendency to be like UBFers this could be a scary prospect. What does this say about the state of Christianity in America? Why are Koreans so anxious to go out as missionaries? Conversely, why are Americans so reluctant? Look forward to seeing what the article actually says and hearing your comments. Wonder if it mentions UBF?

Just recently, I have seen in another example how poorly CT tends to do their research.
It seems like someone gives them a handful of makeshift "facts", proposes an article (maybe pre-formulated already), they brush it over and put it into print.

So, I would agree with human12 that the numbers that CT mentions in that article are just what some ambitious Korean pastor handed them, not what reality reflects. In the same line, I would also suspiciously eye the situation with Chris' point of view, that Korea seems to be very proud to send out people who have neither the qualifications, nor the spirit of mission. All they have is an elitist "We are the best and we can change the world" mindset. I don't believe all Korean missionaries are like that, no never. But after the UBF experience, I'd rather "test the spirits if they are of God" before I embrace any missionaries.

OT: Yes, it's her.
I think she makes a very funny face on that picture.
