“In encouraging young men to come out as missionaries, do use the greatest caution. One wrong- headed, conscientiously obstinate man would ruin us. Humble, quiet, persevering men, men of sound, sterling talents, or decent accomplishments, and some natural aptitude to acquire a language; men of an amiable, yielding temper, willing to take the lowest place; to be least of all; and the servants to all; men who enjoy much closer religion – who live near God, and who are willing to suffer all things for Christ’s sake without being proud of it – these are the men we need.”
– Ann Judson
