mission field

"If you think you have come to the mission field because you are a little better than others, or as the cream of your church, or because of your [qualifications], or for the service you can render the church, or even for the souls you may see saved, you will fail. Remember, the Lord has only one purpose ultimately for each one of us, to make us more like Jesus. He is interested in your relationship with Himself. Let him take you and mould you as He will; all the rest will take its rightful place."                                  -emphasis added
                -spoken by Jack Scholes and quoted in Give Me This Mountain by Dr. Helen Roseveare
