Emotional Needs
Here are some emotional needs that your missionaries have.  They are divided into two categories.  First, personal needs.  Second, family needs.  Believe it or not, missionaries have more emotional needs than you or I since they not only have the daily challenges that life brings, but they have to cope with them in a completely different and at times confining culture.  Also, we tend to forget that the missionary family is just like ours.  They have to train (and discipline) their children.  They have rough spots in their marriage and conflicts with co-workers.
