Item description for Oh Lord, What Have I Gotten Myself Into? by Lamoin Cunningham...

Overview
You will certainly laugh and cry as LaMoin opens her heart and memory to her adjustment to living in the backward and impoverished country of Ethiopia, East Africa. You will see her as a "real" person as she tells about her experiences as a young missonary wife and mother of three small children. Does she always demonstrate perfect faith without fear? No! Does she always have perfect love for the nationals? No! Does she ever want to forget the whole idea of missionary work and go home to America? Yes! LaMoin has written with complete honesty, humor and transparency. Her desire is that you will be entertained, but that you will also be able to better understand missionaries. There is no mold from which missionaries are formed. They are all unique in looks, personalities, and attitudes. LaMoin doesn't fit the sterotyped image of a missionary. Many have said to her, "You don't look like a missionary." However, with God's help, she has the unique ability to adjust to any mission field so her work can be effective. Laugh with her as she tells you about hair in her food, fleas in her bed, and childbirth and surgery in a primitive environment. You will enjoy learning about: WHAT MOTIVATES A MISSIONARY DEPUTATION-RAISING SUPPORT . CULTURE SHOCK . NORMAL FRUSTRATIONS FOR MISSIONARIES

Reviews - What do customers think about Oh Lord, What Have I Gotten Myself Into??

Funny and Encouraging with honesty  Mar 11, 2009
A great read for anyone who is planning to be a missionary, has sons or daughters or other relatives who are missionairies, or, just for a fun read. Lamoin shares her experiences of how her husband Bill and their three kids managed the many issues of being missionairies in a foreign land while remaining true to their faith and purpose. A prolific and creative writer, she shares with her readers the truth about missionary life and that missionairies, after all, are people too. They have the same challenges that all of us face, but with purpose driven lives that mandate their involvement and dedication to the people in the many places in the world they serve. You will laugh at their many situations, and come to know the Cunninghams as extraordinary people living out their convictions, while always relying on their great faith and the provisions of the God in whom they completely trust. You must get a copy and enjoy the adventures of this genuinely dedicated family.
