Meet some of WorldVenture’s newest missionaries! They’re headed to all different corners of the world–Kenya, Uganda, Cote d’Ivoire, the Philippines, and Bolivia. They’re doing things like community health, church planting, photography, and business as mission . . . plus who knows what else when they get there.
This week I have the privilege of helping them learn (or at least reviewing) some important information. My sessions will cover conflict management, language learning, cultural adaptation, writing well, saying good good-byes, transition, and servanthood. Of course, I’ll probably chime in if I think they need to know something else that hasn’t been said in another session. They get to hear from me a lot; let’s hope they don’t get sick of me!
In the past the bulk of my teaching happened on Wednesday. We’re all a little dubious of my stamina these days, so I’ll have a session on Tuesday and Friday as well as a few on Wednesday. I’m sure I’ll be tired but it will be a good tired.
This introducing new people to the WorldVenture family and helping them learn some major ideas before they head overseas is a bit daunting. Thankfully, I know it’s not dependent on me or anyone else on our training team. We can give them ideas and some preparation, but it’s God who called them and ultimately He is the one who equips them. I’m just thankful I get to be part of the process.
What process are you thankful to be a part of?
