Full title: Exploring the Major Findings from a Recent Study on COVID-19 Traumatic Stress Among Missionaries Serving Cross-Culturally During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Description: This discussion will explore the primary findings and implications of a quantitative study conducted in late 2023, focusing on traumatic stress induced by the COVID-19 pandemic among global Christian workers engaged in cross-cultural service. Research, including a notable study by Bridgland et al. (2021), has indicated that the COVID-19 pandemic was a significant traumatic stressor with the potential to precipitate PTSD and diminish psychological wellness. However, despite their substantial global presence, there has been a dearth of quantitative research examining the specific impacts of COVID-19 traumatic stress on Christian cross-cultural workers. In addition to COVID-19 traumatic stress, this study examined variables such as life satisfaction and psychological distress to elucidate their relationship with COVID-19 traumatic stress. The findings of this study both reinforce existing evidence-based literature and offer novel insights, highlighting the necessity for further research. Additionally, these findings emphasize the imperative for enhanced prevention and care strategies within organizations providing member care.
