An open letter to a friend of mine in Fresno, California. I met Eric through Campus Crusade for Christ at Fresno State. He has deeply impacted my life and tonight I just want to step back and reflect on a friendship I have known since 1999. Through crisis and hardship Eric has blessed my life deeply.

Christianity Today publishes an article about hardship, doubt and even agnosticism in the missionary field. It addresses the problems and challenges that are faced, and the harm in making missionaries idols.
