126 Maynor Clara Cheng INTEGRATING INNER-HEALING INTO MISSIONS EDUCATION* Introduction When missionaries undergo culture shock, they often experience feelings of uncertainty, apprehension, frustration, helplessness, a sense of inferiority, and anxiety. All these feelings threaten the self-image and self- esteem of the missionaries undergoing culture shock. New missionaries in general are more vulnerable to emotional depression. Satan would also utilize the cultural stress and the feelings of inadequacy new missionaries experience to aggravate their sense of low self-esteem. In spite of this expected effect of culture shock for new missionaries, theological educators for missionary students still tend to train students more in their ministry competency than in their hearts. The area of missionary care in missionary education is still underdeveloped. Missionary care is more on the remedial than on the preventive side. We should, however, be proactive in "creating" healthy workers for the Lord's vineyard. In training missionaries, therefore, we should offer an evaluation time for students to understand their own emotional, social, and spiritual condition.
