Mari Eygabroad was ready to be a single missionary in Ukraine, providing physical therapy for disabled children and education for their caregivers.
But her meticulously laid plans were about to get a God-sized edit.
When her senior pastor suggested she pray about marrying Bryan, a missionary pilot in Africa, she thought God was crazy. After much thought and prayer and scrolling through Bryan’s online social page, Mari chose to join him. And she was completely unprepared for the path God had laid before her. Mari and her husband were, in a sense, “paired up in a cramped cockpit, trying to figure out how to work, live, and be together all day, every day without the luxury of a handbook.”
This isn’t your average missionary story—this is a missionary manual for spouses who want to best support their husbands on the mission field. Written in a poignant and humorous tone, Living Uprooted: Encouragement for the Missionary Wife is the book the author wished she’d had and is intended to prepare the next missionary wife for her unique role in overseas missions.
I have served over eight years in Africa with my husband and our two children. I am a stay-at-home mom, and I homeschool our children.
I have an affinity for coffee and chocolate, and love being outdoors amongst the trees! Take me hiking, take me to a lake, and I’m a happy girl.
