Is it very common for missionaries to experience flu like symptoms or other illnesses after arriving in a new country?

Jim, Yes it is possible. Your body is under both physical and mental stress when you leave your home and arrive on the mission field. However do not exclude other possiblites of infection and transmission of parasites.
