Missionary from Southern University Killed in Micronesia - WRCB Channel 3 Chattanooga News, Weather
Missionaries are a topic that we have not talked about yet on this blog. Anytime one travels overseas they are potentially placing themselves in a more hostile environment then if they were to remain in the United States. This statement is going to fluctuate based on the location that they are visiting. It has been my experience that most missionaries tend to travel to locations that are less familiar with the gospel. These same locations also tend to be in more remote areas, many times having higher crime rates and a lower presence of law enforcement. Many of these governments are corrupt and even hostel to the work that the missionaries are attempting to complete. Some of these remote locations have poor health care therefore good medical service is not always available.
Check with your local insurance provider on the many options available for international travel insurance. Don’t get caught overseas without the proper medical and financial coverage.
