I wrote this post about six months ago, but decided not to put it up on my blog. The audience was really for missionaries, and that's not usually who I am writing for. So instead, I submitted it to A Life Overseas....and they took it! It's up on their blog today. Check it out here....especially if you are a missionary.
"I needed people, someone who could walk me step by step through my life. I was thrust onto a new team, and into a larger missionary community. I knew nothing about these people, and yet I needed them desperately. How should I navigate those relationships?"
