Here’s one apology that you don’t see often: A Pacific island tribe has apologized to the descendents of a Christian missionary—for killing and eating their ancestor! While things are not so dire anymore, missionary work is still a path fraught with danger and worry, and it is just common sense to purchase adequate missionary insurance.

One of the reasons missionary insurance becomes so important is that the work of missionaries and that of non-profit workers (who are often included in missionary insurance) focuses on the downtrodden and the less fortunate in the world. That means that they live and work in places that make them more susceptible to illness.

Usually, these places also have little or no quality medical help available, and the nearest hospital is miles away. So, keep in mind that when you purchase missionary insurance, you must look for a policy with emergency medical evacuation.

Most missionary insurance plans also offer coverage in the home country and throughout the world, so you need not worry about break in coverage when you visit home. However, keep in mind that the co-pay is usually higher in the home country. Most missionary insurance plans also offer repatriation of remains benefits, although it wouldn’t have been of much use in the case of the missionary who was eaten!
