Back in 2006 I did a poll on being a pioneer missionary: https://www.baptistboard.com/showthread.php?t=32635 I'm going to do something similar here only with a modern, advanced mission field: Japan. Take the poll and let us know how you did! Your Rating According to “Yes” Answers (how many you checked) 0-2 "Yes" answers: Nothing but potato chips and a TV remote for you. You could never be a missionary to Japan. If you pray for missionaries, make sure you don't learn too much about their work. You'd get scared and hide in your closet! 3-4 "Yes" answers: You need to get out more! Try visiting the local zoo. You couldn't be a missionary, but you might be able to support one with prayer and money. 5-6 "Yes" answers: Don't call the mission board—they'll call you. You could be a home missionary, but might not be able to cross cultures. 7-8 "Yes" answers: Admit it, you carry your own pair of chopsticks! Visit a foreign field and try the food. You have great possibilities! 9-10 "Yes" answers: Do not pass go, do not collect $200 in support, you might be a Japanese and not know it. Head out for the mission field right now!
