We recently came across these blog posts and thought they would be great ones to share. They talk about misperceptions people often have about missionaries. We agree with much of it and have found many of these things to be true. So often people misunderstand how choosing this career path affects many different parts of our lives. There are pressures missionaries live with that are par for the course. Still not easy though. Some of the things listed apply more to people working overseas and not as much to our current situation, although many friends and coworkers are experiencing these things and we studied those aspects of living cross culturally when we took the Emanate course years ago. Enjoy the read and hopefully it helps you understand missionaries better and how to pray for them.
