To the many cross-cultural workers and their support teams out of whose experiences come the pages of this book.
Who would have thought such a little book would bring such la-bor? Yet who would have thought of the joy it also brings? The coaching team was great! The first acknowledgement must go to the Holy Spirit, our inspiration and comfort. Second, to my wife Yvonne who often critiqued and rewrote so forcefully that I tried to get her namee on the cover. To my brother Paul who didn’t laugh when he read through the first draft and used his editing skills to meticulously comb through the final manuscript To Alice Lovers who coordinated and wrote much of the Sacramento church’s case study. To the friends of El Adobe Trust who funded the first printing. And even to our kids, for, as our son Hymn pointed out, our experiences in raising them have built into us what it took to stay with this project to its completion)
And finally and foremost. `unto Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think: unto Him be glory throughout all ages" (Ephesians 3:20).
