We want to build community here at a Life Overseas, and we get that sometimes an online one has immense value– whether you are living isolated in Siberia, packing suitcases in Florida or hugging orphans in the Sudan. Over the past five years, we’ve seen the blog-world explode with sites about and from missionary families and humanitarian workers, and here’s one way to find them (and to be found by others).

If you have a blog about living overseas, humanitarian work or about global Christian missions, please enter the address below. You’ll be asked to include an image from your site, a description (in the “name” section) and your web address. If you do choose to add your blog, we do ask that you place either our title and site address or (preferably) our actual button on your sidebar or somewhere on your site. (Scroll to the bottom to find buttons and images.)

If you don’t have a personal blog, feel free to blog-hop by checking out the listed blogs from, literally, around the world. Make sure you leave a few comments encouraging the authors. You never know what your note of encouragement might mean to a discouraged missionary isolated in Siberia or culture-shocking-it during their first year in China.



Remember, if you’ve added your blog to our community, please add us to yours by placing our button or link somewhere on your site– blogroll, sidebar, about page, etc. The details:

        Hello Jen,

        I was born in Mato Grosso, but when I go to Brazil I go to a town close to Recife. My mom’s town is called Pombos. Do you need help with Portuguese? I can maybe help you… Also, I have a Christian blog (in English):

        If there is anything that I can do to maybe help you, please let me know. I know that living in another country can’t be easy. I’ve been to Canada. I’ve lived in the US most of my life.

    From Kansas to Kenya with Love

    This is a blog my husband, a Kenyan native, and I, an American, started to share our story of being in an intercultural marriage. We hope to use this as a springboard for an organization we’re working on here in Kenya to train youth to provide a strong Christian influence in Kenyan arts and media, but right now we’re taking the year to allow me to adjust to a very new culture and marriage.
