Vedanayagam Azariah was the first Indian Bishop
in the Anglican Church. He attended the
well-known missions conference in Edinburgh in 1910. His words to the Western Church: please give us partnership instead of paternalism.
In your idea of missions, are you a partner who is willing to give AND receive, or do you do ministry/missions in a way that causes other to rely on you constantly?
