Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ – How Should I Prepare For The Mission Field? March 29, 2017

AnsweringAnother installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’. Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book. There was just one big problem, many of the answers stray into either the outright bad and emotionally unhealthy to dangerous. Yes, typical Debi Pearl borderline abusive. Here’s what we’re going to be doing here at NLQ. Every week, once or twice a week, I’ll be posting up one of the questions from the message board and ask you, our readers, to answer that poor soul’s question in a way that is logical, rational and the best possible solution, in other words 180 degree turn from Debi and friends answers. As always  all spelling and grammar in the posting is unchanged from the original author.

How should I prepare for the mission field?

I’m a young woman in high school. Since long before I was saved at age 12, I’ve always wanted to be a missionary somewhere. I’m especially interested in the Central/South Americans, but I’m open to wherever God wants me to go. I’m not old enough to go yet, but I’m wondering in what ways I should prepare for the mission field? As a young single woman, what would you encourage me to pursue as far as training that would enable me to help people physically and I’d be able to teach them about God at the same time? I’ve thought about maybe going into nursing, because I really enjoy helping people in that way and that’s something that I could possibly do. I also thought about maybe taking a short teacher’s training course, because that is something I might be able to do–I’m homeschooled, and I’ve helped to teach my brothers a little. Or is there something else that’s more needed than a nurse or a teacher?

Also, if nursing or teaching is something that is needed, would any of you know of any places (preferably Christian) that I could receive the training at? Thanks ahead of time for answering my questions. :)

No one bothered to answer this young woman. What would you suggest?
