Alabaman Mike Brooks has been writing for quite a while as a columnist for Forthright Magazine. His column is called “Field Notes,” reflecting his experiences in Nepal and Bangladesh. Mike spends about six months a year in those two countries. He normally uses some event or happening as a starting point for his articles. These serve as an excellent perspective to keep one from getting too comfortable with one’s own culture.
Others who write for Forthright also have cross-cultural experience. Jon Galloway lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland. Stan Mitchell grew up in Africa, son of a missionary. Yours Truly, of course, is a marathon guy in Brazil.
So reading Forthright Magazine, you get a huge dose of missions. FMag is unique in that way. Another good reason to sign up.
