Which one is the minister? Which one is the missionary?

In a few days, two of my friends will be graduation from Southeastern, one from the college and one from the seminary.

One of the graduates plans to move (with his wife) to Switzerland to learn French, then to Africa. Once they reach Africa, they will work with an organization to help translate Scriptures into local languages and dialects.

The other graduate (with his wife) plans to move to Florida and look for a job teaching history in a local public high school.

So, which graduate is the minister? Which graduate is the missionary?

Answer: Both graduates (and their wives) are ministers, and both graduates (and their wives) are missionaries.
