Not Quite Home: A Journey in Mission

Steve John

Not Quite Home: A Journey in Mission

Steve John

$21.99

Paperback

Daily life seemed like a series of frustrations. A normal day may have seen me paying bills at offices filled with clouds of cigarette smoke and crowds of people jostling for attention, battling blocked toilets, and stepping around dead animals letting off pungent odours. Yet Indonesia was where we felt called to be. When we had exciting conversations about faith and we could see God at work, the comfort we had given up in leaving Australia seemed insignificant... Despite the challenges, we knew that we had found our place, our God-given niche.

Steve's story, like that of many born in other cultures, traces a journey highlighted by the celebration of difference. He reflects on culture through his own experiences in Nepal, Indonesia, Cambodia and Australia, seeking insight through stories, poetry, songs and a quirky sense of humour. Steve's experiences prove that God can use ordinary people to serve Him in extraordinary places. The benefits of such a life are countless, but the challenge is that, after embarking on this journey, everywhere you go will be not quite home...

Real Humorous
3 stars By Christine, May 12 2016
3.5 stars

This book is honest and real. It throws light on mental health issues and how it feels, both to the person dealing with the issue but also their family. Steve's humour shines throughout. As does his trust in God. 
Many of the images used in description 'clicked' with me and made me laugh. 

Helpful for anyone dealing with mental health issues within their family. Also, for anyone wanting to better understand these issues as they minister to others.
