When your mission partner visits, are you sometimes at a loss for what to say to them? Maybe you want to know what’s happening but don’t quite know what to ask? There are some questions they love to answer and some they dread. But mission partners love to talk about the people and country they love. And good questions fuel great conversation.
Read up before they come! Look at their recent prayer letters, remind yourself of their work. This helps avoid the discouraging question, ‘What are you doing there again?!’ Be specific: no one knows quite how to answer the question ‘How is Kenya?’ (or wherever they live). And remember, they’re based overseas because of the people they’re ministering among, so ask about them! Some ideas to get you started:
