Missionary Talks 74: Bill and LaMoin Cunningham

Filed under: Podcast,Show Notes,Talk — David Peach at 8:36 am on Tuesday, April 6, 2010

It was a joy to sit and talk with Bill and LaMoin Cunningham about their adventures as missionaries. While they have had many changes through their long missionary career, it is obvious in talking with them that they have trusted the Lord each step of the way as He has led them through their journey in missions.

They share good advice for both new and veteran missionaries. In doing so they help the person in the pew who is praying for missionaries have an insight into some of the struggles and joys of working for the Lord in missions.

LaMoin has written a wonderful book that will help the reader understand that missionaries are normal people. While the outside struggles may be different on the field from what it is back home, the internal struggle, and fleshly battles are the same no matter what country you are in. You can check out the book as well as sign up for her monthly newsletter at their website.

Filed under: Chat,Podcast,Show Notes — David Peach at 5:32 pm on Tuesday, May 25, 2010

This is a continuation of the Missionary Chats 03: Culture Shock (Part 1) interview with LaMoin Cunningham. Please take time to listen to that episode to get a background of where this conversation came from.

LaMoin and I ended the last episode talking about what friends back home could do to help the missionary as he deals with culture shock, or culture fatigue. This episode continues with other ideas of what friends can do by suggesting certain types of things they can send and how to send them.

Missionary Chats 03: Culture Shock (Part 1)

Filed under: Chat,Podcast,Show Notes — David Peach 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.
