It has already confirmed what I believed about the rollercoaster of emotions you go through living overseas AND that if you are not well prepared the results can be catastrophic!
Because of the emotional rollercoaster magnifies emotions (both highs and lows) we are talking suicide, mental health issues, self harm, life controlling issues, addiction. Serious stuff!
woot woot!! Hands up if love this book just from that!
Many of you will know I started this blog because I was watching several friends live overseas and struggle. I hated the fact that churches, corporations, missions agencies, businesses, etc thought they could just send people to live overseas with little or no preparations and they’d be fine.
ummm, no they won’t. It is hard as heck! Over the last 23 years I have learned that preparation is one of the keys. It doesn’t guarantee success, but it certainly helps!
Anyway, I shouldn’t get ahead of myself. I am only 18 pages in after all, but it is already looking to be a GREAT book!
