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?

You're right, one should always question how accurate claimed numbers are. Also, how comparable are such numbers? Who is counted as a missionary? How good must one be educated to be called a missionary? How many hours a week must one spend on the mission field to be called a missionary? How good are the missionaries supported spiritually and financially by their home organizations? Does somebody with no Biblical education who does more harm than good, and practices mission in his spare time (as UBFers do) count as "1" just as a fully educated, fully supported, full-time missionary? I fear that even UBF "missionaries" are counted as missionaries in that statistic.
