10 Feb: Understanding People Beyond Our Cultural Lens

The ideas of missions and the movement grew drastically ever since different methods of transportation evolved. After airplanes became available to the public, it was a revolution in missions to go and visit places that could never be explored before. Now traveling is such a popular and possible idea that the majority of young people would dream of and pursue. Not only that we can travel to different places, people from other countries come to our nations and cultures are being merged and mixed while we don’t even know it. We call it globalization, and it seems that more people are being open to new ideas and new cultures. However, it is still challenging to see people and understand others beyond our own comfortable perspective.
