Opportunity is given to process the missionary journey with experienced cross-cultural workers who care and to gain perspective on the next phase of life. RE-VIEW has been developed to provide insight on topics such as transition, grief, loss, stress and burnout, among others. There is also group and individual debriefing.
Missionaries transitioning from living cross-culturally have stories of joys and challenges. Debriefing their experience honors God’s call by recognizing and celebrating His fingerprints along the journey. A third party debriefing will provide the extra time, experience and confidentiality that missionary organizations may not be able to offer. As well, sharing and learning with other transitioning missionaries in a small group setting has proven to be very enriching.

One day our churches will reopen. As we prepare for that eventuality, churches would do well to discern the difference between treating newcomers as visitors or guests.
The House of Omeed (House of Hope) exists to inspire hope in the hearts of refugees and newcomers to Canada as they make the necessary huge adjustment to their lives now transplanted into a new, unfamiliar, and often incomprehensible society.
From the very beginning, the existence of the House of Omeed has been a story of miracles.
Given their track-record, it's not surprising, on a recent visit in the middle of Covid restrictions, to find that the staff and volunteers are as busy as ever. In fact, perhaps they’re busier than ever, as they tackle the needs of the community in a way that complies with public health directives.
The idea that older people can’t participate fully in society, let alone the church, is all too prevalent. Especially when it comes to missions. Pastor Norm suggests Intergenerational Ministry as a possible solution & encourages churches to include people across a variety of ages in church ministry, including short-term mission teams.
We can let what’s happening around us mold us or we can be purposeful and seek God’s help in adapting to the changes that are going on around us and in us.
We like Top Ten lists, don’t we? Bite-sized bits of information we can easily process and implement if we choose. Fashion trends. Vacation spots. I figure if it’s good enough for God’s Commandments, it’s good enough for MK mindsets.
I’ve written extensively in the past three years about attitudes and choices that can help MKs and TCKs to avoid some of the pitfalls inherent to being multi-cultural. Here are, in my estimation, the top ten most valuable of them.
