    This book communicates clearly while dealing head-on with things affecting the lives of missionaries. Practical experience in expressing member care issues shines through each chapter. As a missionary care advocate I highly recommend this book for mission personnel, mission team leaders, and as a text for any form of member care training. In equipping missionaries, her title expresses our own goals in training, “Healthy, Resilient, and Effective.”
