BTW most Christian missionaries do NOT get a salary..they come back to the states to raise money by visiting churches and finding sponsers..so your dad did well...
My older brother spent 8 months in Kenya working for Africa Inland Missions. He spent a lot of time raising the money needed to cover his expenses. He sure didn't do it to get rich.
He spent the time there setting up an accounting system for them. It wasn't what he thought he was going there for, but it was where God lead him.
