"This is essential reading by everyone with a heart for missions; those who send, those who are sent and especially those on the welcome committee when they return." -Graham Kerr
"I'm really excited about this book and thank God for its important and vital message. It is thirty years overdue! Short-term missions without this emphasis and teaching can easily end up as a tragedy instead of a triumph."
- George Verwer, International Dir.
"Having counseled with hundreds of returning missionaries, Peter & Donna know from experience the re-entry challenges and opportunities that await missionaries worldwide. They have much to say on this vital subject of re-entry... and the authority to say it."
- Loren Cunningham, Founder and President

Reviews - What do our customers think?
|Not just for missionaries Feb 23, 2007|
|We received this book before we returned from the mission field 10 years ago and found it very helpful. We are re-reading it now to be ready to welcome our daughter's boyfriend home from the war. We haven't found anything else as helpful.|
|Chessy but good Dec 28, 2006|
|I lead short term mission trips and this is one of the most helpful resources I have found to help folks prepare and transition to life back home. This book goes beyond "it will be hard when you go back home", but offers practical reflection points to help you think about the time and what you learned from your time abroad while you are preparing to leave. I love that he focuses on the preparation before you leave the field rather than only on what to expect after you return.|
|Essential! Jan 14, 2004|
|I always keep many copies of this book and give it out to everyone! It is perfect for both short-term missionaries and career missionaries who are returning home to the US. |
Returning home is such a challenge, and most of the issues one faces unfortunately are all to common. It is wonderful to read this book and realize you aren't alone, that people have the same experiences. Believe me, you aren't the only one!
|Great Book for People Returning Home Mar 27, 2000|
|We just returned from Russia when my father gave me this book, and said, 'read it'. That was good advice.|
Returning from an extended period in a foreign country can be a difficult experience. This book describes problems you can fall into, and how to avoid them.
It talks about how people fail to notice you've even been gone. Or don't seem to care that much what you did. When you understand these are common experiences, it helps those problems become a lot less personal.
Overall, we've applied the principles of this book, and haven't experienced most of the 'reverse culture shock' that many do. And we've been home nearly a year now, so we'll probably do okay.
Good book to give a returning, or retiring missionary, as a gift.
