About the Book

Love Thy Neighbor II, the sequel to Love Thy Neighbor, will lead you to fall in love with people the media has told you are enemies. The stories show the delight of not taking oneself too seriously, and how that frees friends from your host country to laugh with you, and thus bond your hearts forever.

“They’re mostly Muslims—they’ll hate you!” was the dire warning given to the author before she embarked upon the adventure that would change her life. Time disproved that and many other negative predictions.

In this world of “East versus West” or “Christian versus Muslim” mentalities, the real-life experiences of ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher Alice Crocker disprove much of what many people expect when they become full time residents in a country, culture, or even religious environment that is not their own. With endearing, earthy wit, infinite delight in her experiences—even the embarrassing ones—and most of all deep, abiding love and respect, Alice’s true stories prove that friendship knows no bounds and that of being a fish out of water can be the most humbling, instructional, and meaningful experience of all.

Be encouraged to fully entrust your life to God, because a joyous adventure awaits, and open your heart to people who are “foreign” as individuals, not stereotypes. Because in the scope of creation and journeying through this temporary world with all its joy and promise, struggle and uncertainty, Alice and her beloved Indonesian friends, students and colleagues, prove that we are all in this together.
