Serving As Senders – How To Care For Your Missionaries  by Neal Pirolo


This book is published by Operation Mobilization Literature Ministry, and is formatted for individual and group study.  The purpose is for the education of missionaries and of those who support them in their efforts.  The preface points out that in secular warfare, there are nine persons in various support roles for every soldier on the front line.  Missions is spiritual warfare, so the comparison is being made.

There are six categories of support listed:

  1. Moral
  2. Logistics
  3. Financial
  4. Prayer
  5. Communication
  6. Re-entry

Financial support is the most readily understood, and is taken care of best.  The others may tend to be poorly done, or may not be done at all.  This study book presents the opportunity to learn to be much more effective in support of missionaries.  It could form the basis for a small group/home study of those interested in missions.

Rating:  Highly recommended
