About the Book

From a daily commute through Seattle rush-hour traffic to equatorial jungles, the Olsons experienced a radical change in lifestyle when they answered a call to serve God in Christian radio. Their travels over a nine-year period brought challenging and joyful experiences in cross-cultural living in the twenty-first century. Their stories range from compassionate to humorous as they relate their extraordinary adventures.


Travel along with the Olsons as they move from country to country across five continents. Author Patti Olson captured the sights, sounds, and emotions of new discoveries as they experienced them, allowing her to recount them in rich detail in Frogs in the Loo and Other Short-Term Missions Tales.
