Some Major Challenges of Every Young Missionary — Alisonomi

Being young is not a hindrance to carrying out a “successful” missionary undertaking, but it is a time when lack of experience makes missionaries look vulnerable. This is why youthfulness—not just in terms of age—is very challenging to missionaries. And among myriads of challenges they face at the very debut of their missionary work are these three points we wish to examine here. 

1. Mistaking homogeneity for universality

One of the facts missionaries learn in formation years is that the Church is universal. But one thing most fail to understand is that universality is not synonymous to homogeneity. 

When we say that the Church is universal, it means that she is true or right at all times and in all places. Its universality stems from the simple fact that it has one single Lord and received the same mission from the same Lord. This does not make her homogeneous because a homogeneous church is a church consisting of rituals, gestures, visions, pastoral activities, etc., of the same types or people that are all the same everywhere. It is a church that lacks diversity, initiatives, dialogue and growth. Brief, a homogeneous church is in a state of sameness and not a universal church. 

Young missionaries should avoid mistaking these two concepts. This they can do by taking time to read the signs of time, observing the context of their local church and dialoguing with the culture of the people to whom they are sent. It is very easy to understand when a missionary is committing this error. He or she becomes judgmental, authoritative or depressed. 

Once a missionary stops recognizing the intrinsic values in every culture; once he or she engages in an outright disrespect of people’s spirituality; reads their value from his or her own background, then the missionary has a homogeneous idea of the Church. 

And once a missionary becomes judgmental, the next temptation is the tendency of becoming authoritative. He or she tries to impose his or her vision on the people. He or she begins to see the ministry as a special one. This is among the origins of clericalism. And when his or her opinion does not matter much, the next step is falling into depression. 

2Believing that a Missionary is a Savior 

Among the greatest temptations of every young missionary is the belief that the success of a mission is based on personal credits. Of course, every missionary activity is carried out by missionaries but the result should not be seen as a credit. A mission is not a performing ground. Results are necessary but the outcome of a missionary activity is not measured in the immediate effect. That a mission is not yielding the expected result does not mean it is unsuccessful. 

And even if the mission seems successful, the missionary is not the only actor in the field. He or she is not even the only missionary. Every member of the community is a missionary. And each member of the community has a unique role to play in every missionary activity. The danger is for the young missionary to see him or herself as The Missionary. He or she is A Missionary and not The Missionary as there are many other ones in the ministry or in every mission ground for, we are all baptized and sent. 

3Forgetting that every missionary is subject to conversion 

Young missionaries tend to think that they are sent to convert others. Rarely do they take time to seek their own conversion. They often believe their formation has made them worthy and fit to go. They even sometimes see themselves as crusaders sent to bring the lost sheep of Israelite back to the fold. That is false! 

No one is perfect, not even young missionaries. Recent revelations on the ugly life of some “great missionaries,” these last decades has shown us that. And as a matter of fact, if there are people who should learn how to allow conversion processes take place in their life, they are the missionaries. Missionaries should be ready to adapt to the missionary changes. They should be ready to walk hand in hand with their missionary partners in the mission. They should, to be able to preach conversion, in truth and faith, experience true and constant conversion. It is only when they live it on a daily basis will they be able to communicate it to their fellow missionaries.
