Returning home

Articles and information on how to return home from your mission trip after such an incredible experience abroad.

The articles below are focused on helping you return home from your international mission trip. This is often called “reentry” and it can be a tough process to adjust back to “normal” life after such an incredible journey abroad.

Returning home often leads to reverse culture shock, which is what happens when you're caught off guard by what you see and experience after you return to your home culture. Often times after we return home we notice things like how much stuff we own or how often we throw food away. It can be disturbing to see your own home, family, and friends through this new perspective.

The articles below will help you navigate what to do with many of those feelings as you attempt to reengage with your normal life, without forgetting what God has shown and taught you while you were away.
