"The guard sitting right behind me placed his gun against my head and said that if I did not go on up, he would shoot me right then. I grabbed the barrel of his gun and shoved it down into his seat, telling him to get out," missionary Jay McLaughlin said, describing one of the hair-raising episodes he and his wife, Sunny, experienced as missionaries in Africa. Most people have little or no knowledge about missions. Through this book, the McLaughlins can help change that as they share their firsthand knowledge gained through many years serving in Uganda and Kenya in East Africa. The first section is about the exciting life of the McLaughlins, revealed through the miracles, dangers, escapes, diseases, fun, sadness, and successes and failures they experienced during fifteen years of their connection to missions, both stateside and on the foreign field. Their life reads like a Christian Indiana Jones story, and you won't be able to put it down. The second section is loaded with helpful, practical, and essential information needed to make life as a missionary more successful-sorted into an easy to find and follow category list. This section provides clear-cut how-to information for everything from the different types of paperwork needed, to medical records, licensing, airline ticket savings, and even tips for getting medical and dental care, insurance, housing, land, and more. All of this helpful information is combined with more suspense and excitement for your enjoyment. Whether you're a church leader or attender, a missionary supporter, or someone wanting to go to the field yourself, you will gain a wide variety of practical knowledge and wisdom to help make your involvement with missions more effective.
