Take a look at some the challenges that Chinese Christian doctors could face as they consider God’s call to missions. And this article doesn’t even begin to address the cross-cultural issues of Eastern and Western medical worldviews!
As you consider these hurdles, let’s not think ‘it can’t be done!’ Rather, let’s think that “God is the God of the impossible.” How might God move us as Western mission workers to include and partner with missionaries from other cultures. Not so much to use them for ‘our’ work but to bless them for the sake of the Kingdom of God.
At the same time let us use our resources not just to do ‘our’ work but to develop spiritual leadership for medical missions which is diverse — celebrating and demonstrating the Kingdom of Jesus.
Challenges? Yes. Opportunities? Definitely. Needed? Leadership. Why? Because this reflects the character of God and reflects His glory.
Jesus taught us, “With God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26
