Gracias. I should've thought of looking at the RAE dictionary. Anyway, I guess either is good for my purposes.

looking at the two RAE definitions I would say in some contexts they are synonyms and in other the misionario may be more generica, and may not be religious in usage

looking at the two RAE definitions I would say in some contexts they are synonyms and in others the misionario may be more generic, and may not be religious in usage (emissary)
