Summary
Our missionary myths are false. Tales of breathtaking adventures, harrowing expeditions, and close encounters of the bug kind -- these are the stories we expect to hear from missionaries. Like a Hollywood blockbuster, we want action, tension, and a happily-ever-after ending, complete with smiling children and the sense that we've contributed to the betterment of humanity. But what if missionary life is not like that? Beyond the newsletter blurbs and well-crafted blog posts lies a missionary world that few outsiders ever see. This book peels off the facade shrouding the realities of that world. Adam Mosley offers an inside look into the life of a missionary, and an exploration of the challenges and issues facing global missionaries and those who care for them. It's time to move beyond the myth, embrace the humanity of the missionary, understand the brokenness of their situation, and tap into the restorative power of authentic relationships. To become better partners, we must begin by removing the mask and seeing clearly, perhaps for the first time, the real life of a missionary
