A social justice activist and writer shares her personal experience working with refugees and the ways her faith has been challenged and strengthenedleading her to experience the power of Gods love and find her true spiritual calling. Determined to save the world, one soul at a time, nineteen-year-old D. L. Mayfield left her conservative Christian home to become a missionary to Somali refugees in Portland, Oregon. But after a decade proselytizing, she realized that she had not converted one single Muslim. I am pretty much the worst missionary ever, she despaired. Yet in her time working with these displaced people, Mayfields eyes were opened to something much bigger. I started to read the Scriptures with new eyes, informed by the people who the Bible was written by and tothe people at the margins of society. And it was so much better than I could have believed. The blessings of Jesus were to be found in the most unexpected places. The kingdom is real, alive, and changing everythingliberating, setting free, healing, and preaching news that is actually truly good, in the here and now. Assimilate or Go Home is the story of her awakening. Mayfield shows us how Gods love is transforming lives, and makes clear that instead of saving the world, we can join Gods party by loving all of our neighborsespecially those on societys edge. With vulnerability and a touch of humor, Mayfield reflects upon how her faith was challenged, and urges all of us to reconsider our concepts of justice, love, and being a citizen of this worldand the kingdom of God.
