"One Size Fits All" doesn't work for men's suits, women's shoes, or automobile tires.  "One Size Fits All" also doesn't work when it comes to church planting.  What works in America doesn't necessarily work in Australia, and what might wind up working in Australia probably can't be duplicated in Poland or Mexico.  From my conversation with missionary Chuck Linkston, I learned that a "cookie cutter" approach to missions just isn't practical or even desirable.  Instead, he used a word that I'm discovering is vital to missionary work--flexibility!
