There are differences in male and female missionary children who have spent five or more years overseas. The variables that will be analyzed are the perceived social support of missionary children from social groups including their families, friends, and significant others. The Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support will be sent out to students of Liberty University who qualify as participants of this study. The scores of the female subjects will then be compared with those of the males concerning experiences on the mission field.
