Adjusting to a new culture can be difficult. This article is an optional resource from the CIT Next online course Culture Shock. This Internet article provides some helpful general information about how stress is brought on by change and how stress can result in physical and psychological negatives.
Are you past the fun and now into the challenges of living and ministering in a new culture? There are some good principles that you can put into practice as you seek to weather culture shock and adapt well to the place where God has sent you. Survival is not the goal; rather, the goal is to allow God to grow you in a way that prepares you to understand and love others around you. Cultural Shock may be just the course that will help.
