Many missionaries bump into a God they weren’t expecting—a God who doesn’t interact with their lives how they thought he would. They’re not bouncing down the street gathering disciples like the Pied Piper. No, they’re struggling to learn the language. They’re realizing their day-to-day responsibilities are different than the job description. They’re fearful that the government will deny their residence permit application. Or they’re leaving the field in chagrin because of a child’s struggle.
