Been on a mission trip? You need this book. Jul 15, 2007
Best book on re-entry for missionaries that I have read. Especially great sections for TKC (Third Culture Kids, formally called MKs). Excellent for someone returning to home, to church, friends, and family receiving them. Easy read. Right on target. Should be in every mission pastor's library.
