OUR MISSIONARIES SHOULD NOT BE PASTORS OF NATIVE CHURCHES
We must not “localize” our work, but keep the vision of the “whole field”. The “whole world” must ever be kept in view. As soon as converts have been won and a church formed, elders should be appointed to act as overseers of the flock, and the missionary pass on, following the example of Paul, to unevangelized fields.
