On Being a Missionary
By Thomas Hale
A great book of practical advice for missionaries, from a man with hand-on experience and a great sense of humor!
“This book helped me more than any other resource when I was first starting out as a single missionary. Very insightful, straightforward, practical, and entertaining!”

If you only want to get one book about being a missionary – get this one! It addresses all the key questions that people have regarding missions and all the major issues that come up on the mission field that you need to be prepared for. It also paints a very clear picture of what you can expect things to be like when you’re on the mission field.
This book has it all:
How to know if you’ve been called to missions. The pros and cons of short-term missions trips. Common fears about going to the mission field. How to choose a mission organization. Pre-field training and preparations. Cultural differences and adjustments. Common mistakes that missionaries make. Dealing with national authorities and corruption. Support raising. What to expect from being a missionary wife. Finding the balance between life and ministry. The joys and challenges of raising children on the mission field.
Also topics on loneliness, singleness, missionary marriages, isolation, stress, culture shock, team conflict, contextualization, ministry burn-out, spiritual warfare, and so much more!

Missionary women have high expectations when they respond to God’s call; of themselves, their mission agencies, host cultures, churches, co-workers, and even of God. These expectations are often times impossible to fulfill and can lead to mental and physical exhaustion.

In Expectations and Burnout: Women Surviving the Great Commission, Sue provides research and surveys from the field while Robynn lends her own personal experiences to demonstrate how burnout can happen and how God can bring life from ashes.
