“Returning Well is a comprehensive resource for cross-cultural workers returning home from the field. These leaders bring a wealth of hard-won understanding and experience home with them. In an increasingly multicultural world, this wisdom could be transformational for the local fellowship, community, and the world. Yet oftentimes the transition home is challenging and difficult, and what could be a transformational season for the cross-cultural leader as well as for the home community, sending organization, or the local fellowship is lost.
“Returning Well creates a bridge for the returning cross-cultural worker to journey home, not just physically, but emotionally, culturally, relationally and spiritually. Crafted with creativity and with great honesty, Returning Well invites those who are returning home to go deep in dealing with every aspect of cross-cultural transition, from leaving to readjustment. Because learning takes place best with support, the book also advocates that each worker have a companion (which may be a life coach) to walk through the transition with them and includes a section for the companion.
“I would highly recommend this resource to returning cross-cultural workers, to coaches and pastors and to the local fellowship!”
