Attendees at Summer Under the Son 2023 heard from Sydney-based Richard Shumack, who has a background working in Muslim communities.
Dr Shumack spoke about the changing nature of mission work, including the need for missionaries to be able to apply their skills to multiple cultures at the same time.
