We just want to share some resources with you about this crazy, wild season of missionary life.
Our prayer is that by sharing OUR story with you and then YOU sharing YOUR story with us, together we can walk this journey of life overseas.
Remember, what worked for us may or may not work for you. God is equipping YOU for the task ahead and we pray that this list can be a sounding board for your overseas journey! He’s creating and weaving your very own overseas life story. Never doubt that.
We believe that with a greater understanding of overseas life, you will be better equipped to connect, go or be an active part of missions around the world.
