Survival of the Fittest: Keeping Yourself Healthy in Travel and Service Overseas
Survival of the Fittest Keeping Yourself Healthy in Travel and Service Overseas Author:Dr. Christine Aroney-Sine When God calls us to work overseas, he doesn't expect us to leave our common sense at home. Yet many of us do. Expecting a greater degree of divine protection because we are doing "God's work", we become careless and take unnecessary risks. Dr. Christine Aroney-Sine knows how dangerous, even deadly, this kind of presumption can be, and she wants... more » to counteract it. As a physician working aboard the Mercy Ship S.S. Anastasis, she treated many patients for illnesses and injuries that could have been prevented. And preventable health problems are costly. They place additional stress on fellow missionaries who already have too much to do. They use up valuable medical resources. And they slow down the work of furthering God's kingdom.
Over the years the author has conducted seminars on how to stay healthy overseas, and the overwhelming response to her presentation has been "Where can I get this information in written form?" This book is her answer.
Written in a language and style that people with no medical training can easily understand, the book tells readers how to stay healthy as well as how to treat common illnesses. And it addresses all areas of health--emotional and spiritual as well as physical. For anyone venturing overseas, whether for a short trip or an extended stay, Survival of the Fittest will be a useful traveling companion.« less
