There is another blessing to a Summer Missionary - the impact on the missionary's life. The first Summer M I had when I served in another state is now a church planter in that state. How awesome to see how God used our little mission church to impact church planting. Another Summer M we had answered a call to ministry. He called me to share the news, and to thank our church for being in the program.
I believe that this is a great program from NAMB. They screen and transport the missionaries to the field. NAMB also provides health insurance and a stipend for the summer. Thank you NAMB - our church would not be able to bring in a person for the summer on our own.
