You Don't Want This To Be You!

Motivation!  Why do I want to exercise some level of expertise when observing and learning about a new culture?  My motives may be really strong and pure.  I want to be a loving and effective messenger of the the Gospel of salvation and life in Jesus Christ.  I know that I need to understand and function well in my host culture where I minister.  But what if my methodology for becoming competent in the culture has some flaws?
