This week I take the time to define some of the terms that you will hear in Missionary Talks. This will help familiarize you with some words that we use often in our talks with missionaries that will help you enjoy the conversations more.
You will hear me mention mission boards quite a bit in this episode. I did not point this out, but it is worth noting that there are many missionaries who do not work through a board, but use their sending church to do the work that a board normally would fulfill.
I tried to stay simplistic in the definitions, which means that there was a lot of material not covered. This episode does not go into why missionaries do what they do. Nor does it cover missions philosophy. There are many good books written on this subject. This is really just a definition of terms.
