Striving to succeed in God’s work often means long work hours and ministry related traveling and tempting missionaries to neglect their spouses and children. They need a way to establish a GOD – pleasing balance between home and ministry. Slow numerical progress can also discourage missionaries, especially when they hear reports of others success. This may create a spiritual crisis for missionaries and making them doubts their calling and doubt GOD. Please help them O Lord.
