Veterans of Global Missions Association, UPCI


Written By: Admin - Apr• 07•11

The Veterans of Global Missions Association was organized several years ago and has proven a be a great blessing, especially to the missionaries who have returned to the homeland. The VGMA directs its efforts in helping missionaries readjust to North America and find their place in the country from which they were sent to the mission field. It has often been said that the adjustment in coming back to the homeland is greater than that of going to the foreign field. After a missionary has adjusted his life to the people of a different language and culture and has lived and worked among them for many years, it is, indeed, a great challenge to return to live in the homeland. Global Missions Division is grateful for the tremendous blessing that the VGMA is providing our missionary family.
