Cross-cultural workers often fail because of lack of spiritual readiness (relationship with the Lord), Interpersonal
skills (relationship with others), and intercultural skills (cross-cultural competence) rather than academic and
technical skills. It is so important to deepen their relationship with the Lord and face up to the emotional and
spiritual challenges of living in another culture. It is also important to deepen their understanding and appreciation
of people of other cultures. We would like to share these insights in order to make our missionary training
successful.
