The key to being a successful return missionary is transferring gained knowledge and skills from this alternative reality to real life. Here are five ways to make that happen.
1. Find your passion.
As a missionary, life was simple – you knew exactly what you were going to do each day. You had a well-defined purpose and every decision you made was centered around that purpose. Real life is a little more complicated. As missionaries come home they can lose that sense of purpose when they take off their name tags. A successful return missionary will find a new purpose. (Keeping Christ at the center of their lives, of course.)
