ABOUT THE BOOK
There is a land beyond the Mekong: mysterious, isolated, a backpacker must-see, cultural melting pot, natural wonder, and an immersive experience into Buddhism. Tuk Tuks, Whiteboards and Sticky Rice is an invitation to join a teacher and his family as they seek to live out the life of faith in this beautiful, challenging, and needy country.
What is it like to live in a far-away land among people with dramatically different languages, belief systems, and ways of seeing the world? What can family life and witness look like? How can teaching be professional and uphold integrity while acting as a signpost to good news?
Tuk Tuks, Whiteboards and Sticky Rice is a testament to how God partners with ordinary people, everyday life, and even mistakes to draw people closer to Him. It is for all who long to witness cross-culturally through their vocation, particularly English teachers overseas, but also those seeking to connect with Buddhist people, from the Mekong region and further afield.
Daniel was born in Asia and raised in one of the most multicultural areas of the UK. Married to Mei, they have two children, alongside a houseful of pets and books. Daniel and his family had the privilege of living in a wonderful and challenging country in South East Asia for many years. There he discovered there were few better ways of sharing life with people than through teaching English and working with teachers. When he’s not thinking about cross-cultural life, Daniel loves watching fireworks, climbing small mountains, and exploring with his family.
