FROM Mission to Mission (FROM) provides a network for laity, sisters, brothers, priests, and ministers who have been involved in cross-cultural or global ministry. FROM helps its members by counseling and coaching missioners during their time of "reverse culture shock," offering periodic re-entry workshops and retreats, convening regional and national gatherings of missioners, publishing and distributing booklets and tapes pertinent to transition issues, circulating a directory of member missioners' names and addresses, and publishing a periodic newsletter. FROM's goal is to ease the re-entry process through sharing the joys, angers, fears, and frustrations that mark the missioners common experience upon re-entry.
