What happens when Filipino missionaries working all over the world come home, either for vacation or for good? Just imagine them in Africa or in any other part of the world, giving their best to the people they are called to love and serve, sharing those people’s lives and dreams and struggles, learning to speak their language. Then after five, fifteen or 30 years they must come home to thePhilippines. They are somehow lost. They experience cultural shock in reverse. The Philippines has changed and is still rapidly changing.
