5 Reasons for Missionary Attrition
1. Lack of sufficient support
The average missionary, like most non-profits, is in a perpetual state of fundraising. This is not as bad as it sounds however, many times it is for good reason. Though many missionaries are underfunded even well funded missionaries are constantly looking to increase their support health. The primary reason for this is that as a missionary's original objectives are achieved the ability to meet a greater need often presents itself, thus the need for increased funds and a never ending cycle of support raising.
