American Missionaries

Every year, tens of thousands of Americans go abroad to work as missionaries. It can be controversial and sometimes dangerous work, which was highlighted by today's deadly attack on American missionary health care workers in Yemen. NPR's Eric Weiner profiles a pair of Americans who work as career missionaries in the southern Philippines.
