An Introverted Missionary

Recently a friend shared a link on Facebook about missionaries who are introverted and it couldn’t have come at a more perfect time.  God used it to open my eyes and my heart to accept myself for who I am and not try to conform into “the perfect missionary”.  While I will always try to improve weaknesses when it comes to sin I also need to realize that knowing my limits and resting and being alone when needed is not a sin or weakness but can be a strength. Especially
since I am teamed up with my husband the extreme extravert! Hopefully I will be able to
take this to heart so as not to burn myself out to a crisp! http://www.alifeoverseas.com/the-introverted-expat/

”I wasn’t God’s first choice for what I’ve done for China. I don’t know who it was. It must have been a man—a well–educated man. I don’t know what happened. Perhaps he died. Perhaps he wasn’t willing. And God looked down… and saw Gladys Aylward. And God said, ‘Well, she’s willing.’” – Gladys Aylward
