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 Online has been developed when face-to-face gatherings are not advisable and will provide teaching on such topics as transition, grief, loss, stress, and burnout. There will also be group and individual debriefing.
Missionaries transitioning from living cross-culturally have stories of joys and challenges. Debriefing their experience honours 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.

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.
The Chaplain Ministry for seafarers has had to change & adapt due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Bill shares some of the challenges, and some of the joys of ministering to the seafarers during this season.
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.
Moving a course with a global footprint and a 20+ year track record from a face-to-face delivery model to an online one would normally be a considered, careful experiment, filled with caution, evaluation and review.
Making the pivot in 2 months, with no safety net, has felt at times like jumping out of an airplane into one of those big, black clouds.
When you are tumbling through the storm there isn’t much time to evaluate. But a few months on, still facing ongoing challenges, here are some silver linings that are beginning to gleam ever more clearly.
Ask adult TCKs about the most challenging transition of their lives, and they'll most likely say, "College" or University.
It's not surprising, really. Where most young people entering higher education have left their home and fmily in another part of the country, TCKs have often left their entire universe behind - the sights, sounds, savors, customs, languages, mentalities, and belief systems of places that have little similarity and relevance in this new world.
This degree of loss, combined with the oddness of re-entering a "home" culture that feels somewhat foreign, can create an emotional-cultural-and-transitional Perfect Storm.
In this article, Michèle outlines ten tips that may help with transition.
