The cross-cultural connections and the cross-cultural stretching, the faith struggles, the reverence of older missionaries, the questions about God's sovereignty in the midst of catastrophe, and the confusion surrounding the loaded word, Calling. It's all here.
We need this story. The missions community needs this story. Yes, it's one person’s history, but this is a book that missionaries and TCKs of all stripes need to read, because Passages through Pakistan ties us to our shared history. It links us with the bigger Story, and it reminds young cross-cultural workers that they're not the first. Not the first to travel. Not the first to care about social justice. Not the first to raise children abroad. It shows us that we are part of a larger plot arc that both preceded us and will in fact follow us. These reminders are much needed and deeply enriching.
I am sure that Marilyn's gentle storytelling and textured memories will encourage and inspire and heal many.
