Embarking on overseas missions can be both an exhilarating and daunting experience. From the day you take your first concrete step into answering the call, your life will never be the same. And it will never belong to you again. The tears, fears, financial struggles, relationship strains, rejection, discouragement, depression, anxiety, and an ever-growing sense of your own insufficiency to accomplish the task for which you have been sent are sure to be greater than you could anticipate or imagine.
