Parents of Missionaries gave me some solid advice, and each page gave a wonderful sense of connection to a larger community, and relieved some of my isolation. I have new ways to pray, and new insights.
As a note of disclosure, I was also a missionary wife for two decades; the author addressed a number of the difficult situations I faced, which eventually ended our marriage and resulted in changes in our sending organization.
