One of the greatest difficulties connected with this work is to find suitable godly persons for it. Many things are to be considered - suitable age, health, ability, experience, lover for children, true godliness, preparation to bear with the many trials and difficulties connected with it, and a strong desire to labor, not for the sake of money but to serve God.
To find godly persons with these qualifications is not an easy matter. ... But I try to find suitable individuals in whom, as much as possible, the above qualifications are united.
The laborers should work happily among themselves, and then I can work easily with them. I must be their servant; and yet, I must maintain the place of authority God has given me over this work. This need is far greater than any that is connected with money. These matters lead a person to call upon God!
