This blog is a resource for churches and individuals involved in sending and supporting Christians who live and work in a foreign land, to help you understand what life is like for your friends oversees, and how best to come alongside them. It is also an encouragement and challenge to missionaries who are serving. I also hit up other topics such as missiology, church planting and spirituality.

Brian is married to a lovely lady and together they are raising three wonderful young men and longing for their daughter in heaven.  The Stankich family has lived and worked previously in Macedonia and Egypt.

Taking on mid-life with a coffee snob mentality, Brian enjoys basketball, soccer, social media, gardening and nature.  Brian lives in Orlando, Florida; calls Denver, Colorado home; grew up in Indiana; and considers himself a world citizen.
