Grow2serve partners, MissionaryCare.com and CrossCulturalWorkers.com., provide missions and mental health resources. Ron & Bonnie Kotesky are retired member care consultants with Go International who provide member care for missionaries in their home, on the field, through orientation and debriefing events and over the Internet and radio.
Missionaries go through major transitions when they move from their passport cultures to their host cultures and when they return “home.” Of course, these transitions are discussed in this book; however, missionaries also go through transitions before they leave, while they are serving on the field and after they return. This book includes information about many of these transitions, including the final transition for all of us, the transition from earth to heaven.
People usually think of beginnings as occurring before endings. That seems to be logical because something has to begin before it ends. However, in transitions one thing may need to end before something else can begin.
