Re-Entry - Sender


a process, not an event

  • Please don’t view the missionary’s return as an event, but rather as a process that may be difficult for them.
  • Reverse culture shock (or ‘re-entry stress’) can be as difficult, or even harder, for returnees to navigate than the original culture was! Often that is because it is unexpected.
  • Be prepared to love and welcome the returnee home, even if they appear ‘difficult’ as they struggle with this phase.
