About the Author
Chad Owens lives in Papua New Guinea with his wife Kendal and two children, Calvin and Sydney. They moved to Papua New Guinea in 2007 and have lived there since. In 2004 God put the call on his heart to move to Papua New Guinea and he simply didn't want to leave his comfortable life in the Silicon Valley, CA. Along the way, while others were looking around thinking 'this is great, I'm finally becoming a missionary' Chad looked with different eyes. He and his family now call Papua New Guinea home, but it wasn't always that way.

I'd recommend this book to anyone who is curious what missionary life is like in Papua New Guinea - whether they are considering serving themselves, or have friends or family who are currently there. Many of the ideas in this book will apply no matter what country a missionary is serving in (like the discussions about finances, or the issues that come up being far from family), but some of it is more country-specific to Papua New Guinea (like some of the cultural stories, or things specific to the community Chad lives in).
I thoroughly enjoyed Chad's conversational writing style and the content of this book, and I would recommend the book to anyone who wants to better understand what REAL life is like for people serving cross-culturally in Papua New Guinea.
(Full Disclosure: I donated money to the Kickstarter campaign for publishing this book.)
