Missionary Chats 03: Culture Shock (Part 1)

Filed under: Chat,Podcast,Show Notes — david at 10:53 pm on Sunday, May 16, 2010

I talked with LaMoin Cunningham about culture shock. In this first part of the conversation we define how culture shock can effect a missionary and how friends back home can communicate with missionaries to help them through their time of culture shock, or culture fatigue.

I interviewed LaMoin and her husband in a previous episode of Missionary Talks.

The reason I wanted to talk with LaMoin about this is she gave a lecture to missionaries last year that I was privileged to hear. In it she talked about many of the same things we cover in this conversation. Her focus then was on the missionary and what he could do to help overcome culture shock. In this conversation we tried to focus on the friends back home and explain to them how they can be a help to the missionary on the field.

You can get more information about LaMoin at her website.

Please be back next week for the conclusion of the interview.
