From Central Africa to Egypt: A Surgeon’s Journey
When medical professionals step out of one culture into another to serve in mission, the transition is far more complex and difficult than even those with wide international experience may realize, especially if it involves a change between widely divergent cultures, the need to learn a new language or work through a translator, and understanding a completely new worldview. Understanding how these issues affect medical practice requires a mixture of humility, curiousity, and perseverance, and can bring about successful transition and widen doors to successful ministry.
