What is re-entry?
Re-entry is when a family that has been serving overseas returns to their passport country "for good." It is the process by which all members of the family try to integrate back into their current society. This is often challenging, especially for the children and teenagers.
As a church, we can play a part in creating a welcoming and understanding environment for these families. This includes praying for the transition, checking in on the family, being up-to-date on current issues being faced (e.g. school applications, house renovations, etc.), and being an available friend.
Together with support, time, and God's grace, these families can come to find their "new normal."
