Julie has been involved with From Mission to Mission since 1991. She has been the director since 2002. Originally known as F.R.O.M., or the Federation of Returned Overseas Missioners, the organization was started in 1980 by missioners who had served around the world and upon returning "home" found their re-entry the most difficult part of their experience. It became From Mission to Mission to reflect their belief that mission doesn’t end when you return to your home culture and in recognition that those who serve domestically struggle with re-entry as well.
