FAVORITE POST ON TUMBLR.
I’m just gonna rant a little and say this: you do not need to save Africa. I repeat, YOU DO NOT NEED TO SAVE AFRICA.
Equip Africa to save herself, but you do more harm than good by coming in on as the white knight. So much more harm!
Something for you to chew on.
Was “white knight” a pun?
Also, yes please this: You do more for people by teaching them how to fish (metaphorically) than you do by going for a week or so with fish. Short term missions are only useful if you are somehow helping the people help themselves. Like, instead of building a church building, send a missionary to teach men how to be pastors and evangelists in their own country.
