This is a good day to get a glimpse of the joys and trials of serving Christ in a cross-cultural setting.

Let’s start with a bird’s-eye view, following this missionary from Uganda as he flies in ChadFlying in Chad and Flying in Chad 2.

On to Cambodia – a simple post about The Top 6 Things I’m Learning and Living this Year.

This next post, for some reason, gave a very good look in a few words at a part of missionary life. Don’t miss this Crazy day with missionaries (Japan).
Niger and more
Although not every missionary is living in a hot climate, right now this one most certainly is! From Niger, You Know It’s Hot Season When….

These are the kinds of people God is reaching (He reaches all kinds, doesn’t He?) – Jesus loves Elisa! (Ecuador)

Finally, some training and unifying in Kenya and beyond – Transforming Mission: Growing in Partnership.


Mom & SonIn most countries around the world, though not all, Mother’s Day is sometime in May. And although it’s actually in July in South Sudan, what is it like for an ex-pat to celebrate Mother’s Day far from “home”? What is Mother’s Day like for a missionary mom in South Sudan?

Many suffer heartache around this time of year – which is why we so appreciate Unexpected Friends (Chile).

Speaking of kids and birthdays, sometimes being remembered on your birthday is a reason to cry (South Africa) – Happy birthday: he beamed, she cried.

Another birthday (Russia)! New Life!

And completely unrelated (but still interesting) … what is that sneaky missionary really up to? The Nefarious Western Plot to Stabilise and Strengthen Pakistan
