Changes must be made

 We should see to it that no Christian student goes out into the world without having been brought face to face with the question of his responsibility to carry out the final commission of his Lord. All students who are to become leaders in the Church at home and abroad should be enlisted and guided in the scientific study of missions.

Men and women of high qualifications should be enrolled by the thousands as volunteers for foreign missions, and all practical measures should be employed to insure their receiving the most thorough preparation. Only by carrying out such a comprehensive and aggressive policy will the missionary societies be supplied with a sufficient number of thoroughly qualified candidates to evangelize the world in this generation.
