Byun uses his experiences with missionary work and conversations with many missionaries to give a great overview of missionary struggles. He accurately outlines the biggest threats that missionaries face and gives sounds biblical advice on what it takes to overcome those issues. Along the way, he details why it’s so important to pray for missionaries and how any church-member can do something to support missions causes.
