Dan,
Make sure ALL your missions team people read that article. It was good and I LOVED the photo HA! We used to always teach "Re-Entry" to outgoing teams when doing missions work. They have to understand it because it is REAL. I always wanted a hot shower, Taco Bell, and my BED when I came back from 3rd world trips! The other ones (Western trips) aren't so hard to take but there still is re-entry to face regardless. Culture shock happens in all countries no matter how hard you prepare and then you face it again when you come back to the States.

Good article Dan.

If missions team people feel like this it makes you wonder what some of our troops feel like when they come back from overseas.
