Too often mission leaders and supporters take for granted the need for language proficiency in missions. Many of us come from a mostly monolingual society. We short-circuit language learning or press for minimal time and effort so that, in our view, the missionary can get on with the program. Little do we realize the significance of a higher level of language proficiency in order to teach and explain and proclaim the glorious intangible truths of biblical truths, theology, and the Gospel. We must change our attitudes and minds in order to encourage and insist that the missionary learn the language or languages! really well.
