This course is rooted in the firsthand experience of many Global Volunteers and International Hosts. In these pages, you will find a toolkit for making your service overseas a better experience. Take your time. If you read, reflect, and ask questions, you will find your understanding of mission will start to grow in surprising and beautiful new ways. For those with previous experience, you will be wise if you recognize that every mission has uncharted territory. Spend time in preparation and listen to the voices of experience...you won’t regret it.
