You are about to move and jump into overseas life.
Your journey to the unknown is beginning and you need resources, tips, help and encouraging advice.
You’re unsure what to do next… oh, you have a list of tasks a mile long… but what first? how? who? when?
You aren’t alone and you CAN do this.
Before you know it you’ll be catching your first one-way flight to lands unseen.
Or, you already did… and you are wondering what now?
Well, you have found a place full of resources in this wild season of missionary life.
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.
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.
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.
