Culture shock and adaption to a new country

A few days ago, just before their arrival in Asuncion, Paraguay, Troy Spradlin began chronicling his and his wife Andrea’s reactions on The Fellowship Room in a series he calls “Culture Shock Chronicles.” I invited him to register daily in a single paragraph some of their reactions and adaptations.

It makes for enlightening reading and serves as a growing resource for churches who want to understand better the process of cultural adaption.

In many things I’ve been able already to relate to Tony’s posts as they send me back in time to those days when we passed through similar phases.
