“The best plan is to share and share alike, that is, if we have faith enough to keep the pot full; then there will be sufficient for all. It is dangerous to pay big salaries. Most so-called ‘Faith Missions’ set aside just sufficient to meet the cost of living, and that is a wise plan. It does not put the missionary too high above the native. It does not overburden the church at home. It honors God. Too much equipment is a hindrance rather than a blessing.”
