As I've gone through this page, though the main info seems sound, most of the comments seem directed towards Greek/Roman and Egyptian Myths, which have been done to death. I, personally find other mythological systems more interesting- such as Norse and Celtic mythologies. Here is a book on Norwegian (Norse) Trolls. Quite comical, while still educational.

Though missions are often referred to, after the fact, as the 'best two years' of a person's life, it is often overlooked that a mission is probably also the hardest time of your life. Unlike going to college or moving away from home, a mission cuts you off from home in a way most people don't experience any other way. Rigorous schedules, hard work and rules against any contact with home except email and letters combine to make missions very difficult for many. At the same time, it should be remembered that, if you can power through those challenges and lose yourself in the work, you'll find your mission more rewarding than if you make P-day the highlight and focus of your week.
