Product description

About the Author

Dr John Chenoweth MB, BS, FRANZCOG, FRCOG graduated from the University of Queensland in Medicine in 1976. He worked as an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist and fertility expert in Brisbane Australia until he retired in 2018. He is married and has four children, with ten in the following generation. His parents took him to their mission work in Thailand at four years of age, and sent him to Chefoo boarding school in Malaysia at age five. He was there until eleven years old when he was sent home to stay with relatives in Australia for further education. The events described in this book have been of critical importance to him.

Dr. Jenny Ostini is an Australian applied social scientist working in social and policy settings on gender, literacies and understanding workplace experiences and behaviours. She credits her complicated childhood for her enduring interest in the choices people make and the impact these choices have on their lives and families.

Bernard Dainton and his wife live in Tortola, in the British Virgin Islands. After secondary education and university in England, he studied at London Bible College 1988-91, before working in an inner city church in London for nearly twenty years, at the same time as earning a living with a series of charities. He attended Chefoo Boarding School from January 1970 to June 1975. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

"There are no words that could express the honour of being invited to write the Foreword for this collection of amazing stories. These stories full of true loss and hope, authentic wonder, gratitude and thoughtful fury." Wm Paul Young, author of The Shack, Lies We Believe about God, Eve, Cross Roads.


"In watching, I have seen the truth that adult Missionary Kids are not victims of the past but can make choices for the present that can change old messages into new. It is a powerful message indeed..."

Ruth Van Reken, author of Letters never Sent: A Global Nomad's Journey from Hurt to Healing, and co-author of Third Culture Kids: The experience of growing up between worlds.
