I got the following from Jeff Bush’s blog. One of the best lists that I have ever seen for missionaries:

(J. Hudson Taylor’s Missionary Equipment)

1. A life yielded to God and controlled by His Spirit

2. A restful trust in God for the supply of all needs

3. A sympathetic spirit

4. A willingness to take a lowly place

5. Tact in dealing with men

6. Adaptability toward circumstances

7. Be real in service

8. Steadfastness in discouragement

9. Love for communion with God and for the study of His Word

10. Some experience and blessing in the Lord’s work at home

11. A healthy body and vigorous mind
