by: Sue Eenigenburg (Author)
Screams in the Desert is an invitation to participate in one woman’s cross-cultural journey and the lessons she learns along the way. Sue Eenigenburg’s poignant and humorous accounts of life overseas provide insight into issues that many women encounter in the mission field. Join Sue for trips to the zoo, bouts of illness, landmine fields, miscommunications, and other everyday experiences of life in a foreign country. Providing women with examples to learn by, scripture to meditate on, and space to write about personal experiences, Screams in the Desert offers hope and humor to women working cross-culturally.


  • Insightful and creatively written, this book is a companion on the road of ministry, an apt encouragement for the weary on the way. Sue's stories echo a refrain of praise in danger and humor in disappointment, encouraging and enabling worker and supporter alike.
    Cynthia A. Strong, PhDSimpson University
  • Not many people understand the unique stressors of working cross-culturally. Sue's candid and humorous description of her everyday experiences as a missionary gives insight into her spiritual journey. She is transparent with her emotions and struggles - acknowledging that each story does not necessarily have a happy ending. What better way to encourage fellow sisters to persevere than to share the realities of life with the truth of Scripture?
    Lorrie LindgrenExecutive Director, Women of the Harvest
