Interview with D.L. Mayfield

assimilate-danielleLast week, I had a great conversation with D.L. Mayfield, author of Assimilate or Go Home: Notes from a Failed Missionary on Rediscovering Faith. The good news is: Danielle's book is lovely and haunting, a book definitely worth buying if you have ever despaired - and hoped - about the good God wants to do in our broken world. In one of my favorite parts, Danielle pens an imaginary letter to Frank Laubach, Mayfield writes, “And I try to be like you, try to pray the love of God on the city. I try to imagine it as an ocean of longing, the beams of the sun transforming into the only presence big enough for all of our needs. And as I pray, I can’t help but hope that the finest sliver of that light would fall on me as well.” The bad news (about our interview) is: I did not record the interview properly. 

I did, however, recover the audio even if the sound quality isn't fantastic. You can listen here. I'm sorry for that, but I hope it doesn't discourage you from listening. Most importantly, I hope this interview whets your appetite for the book, which you can buy here.
