Could You Recommend a Book for Those Returning From a Mission Trip?

  103 views

Hello, All, didn't know who to ask so thought I would ask my friendly neighborhood CRCNA Network! Our youth group is coming back from an evangelistic mission trip in New York City through NYSUM (New York School of Urban Mission) and I am looking for a book to give to them when they return. I wonder if you have any suggestions. I remember reading about one that had to do with dealing with "coming down from the mountain" after returning from a short term mission trip, but I can't seem to think of the title or author. If anyone would have any ideas of a good book to keep the momentum going for them, I would appreaciate it.

Good luck - this is definitely an important topic!

Jeff, I wonder what you decided to use, and how it went.    Did you find a resource that really worked well?  I have found WHEN HELPING HURTS by Corbett and Fikkert to be very good.
