The Finest Missionary

The Rich: 
Our lunch is so tasty and luscious 
It’s like in the mission we will see 
Hmmm….the air so cold and affectionate 
I can finally use my money as well as charm 
Crap! My gadgets will indeed save me 
Branded clothing will be an impression 
That is why; I am the best missionary here 
Because I have everything the world 
Could ever desire. 

The Intellectual: 
Yes, to teach is my dearest passion 
I’m not like you bird brains 
Who are ignorant of knowledge and prestige 
I’m the only one who can feed minds 
One that thinks and reflects 
I will make them understand 
The meaning and essence, from Soc to Sartre and beyond 
That is why I’m the righteous lad 
To be an instrument of God 
The Humble: 
Just think of the adventures we will encounter 
I’m not that rich and smart 
But to be with the people is our real task 
Not to impress, not to be a cutie, and play with coconut husk 
All I want to do is be with God’s people 
To serve Him with all my heart 
My oblation is  everything 
This sacrifice is only for Him to offer 
Not for man but to the transcendental One 

The Adjudicator: 
That is all true of what you say 
But remember that every minute there may be danger 
Snakes, NPA’s, ancient spirits and the current as you walk along the river 
Remember,  you are all unique in different talents 
Use them well to do great things 
Be sure that before it gets dark you will find your way 
Because the best among you 
Just lies beneath the veins. 
How precious is the life given for mission? 
You will all now become a real servant of the Lord 
Doing the same, but in different ways 
And let us all rise and pray 
Evaporate! Be gone and sleep early 
For tomorrow you will get wet and dreary 
Finish your food; it may be your last 
Godspeed and in Him put all your trust!
