The seminary was a good challenge for me to not forget the passion that got me to South Asia. They said, remember to share that passion with people. In sharing with people, they had seven helpful points - one was “lead with your passion, not with your need.” A following quote was, “if we lead with our need, we give the impression that our need is our passion."
