Men Wanted for Hazardous Journey

This is a newspaper clipping of a want-ad put out by Sir Ernest Shackleton when he was building a team to explore the Antarctic in 1914.

If, when you read this ad, you think you would have responded to it…

…then maybe you are called to be a missionary.

Or, if the ad below Shackleton’s ad is more appealing to you, (“wanted: Neat-appearing young men of pleasing personality.”)…

…then maybe you’d better stay home where it’s safe.
