About this title
The first year for any missionary is filled with adventure and trials. Assimilating to a new culture requires more than any book can offer. This is the story of a young woman who stepped out of her college years directly into the mission field. She was vastly unprepared in language, experience, and spiritual discipline, but she encountered the Lord in a way she never could while growing up in America. The transition from an American college campus to the sandy streets of a developing country was not easy physically or emotionally. The excitement of adventure soon waned in the face of homesickness and culture shock. Through it all, she found that the practices she had been taught for years in church and student ministry were vital for survival and that there is no hope, no strength, and no joy that can sustain you outside of what is found in Christ.From the Author:
Adjusting to the mission field is not a simple process, neither is your first year of teaching, your first year post-college, or your first year in a dating relationship; for me, all of these happened at once. This novella is the product of many trials and many joys that my first year on the mission field provided. The spiritual transition from college ministry to overseas ministry was challenging and called me to a higher level of service and humility than I had ever anticipated. It is my prayer that this novella reaches the hands of anyone who needs encouragement or assurance during the transitional periods of beginning ministry.
