Missionary, Resource Yourself!

My friend, David Lewis, is the CEO of the Paracletos Ministry.  He and his wife, Irene, also host a wonderful Oasis in Indiana called, Baan S’abai.  Head over there sometime when you need some encouragement, reflection, rest, and coaching.

Every Friday he puts out a wonderful blog post with a bunch of resources in it.  Many of those are blog posts from other missionaries who are excellent writers with a lot of experience.

My suggestion is to sign up for David’s blog and get these in your box every Friday, as I do, for encouragement, resources, challenge, perspective, and some laughter along the way!

Here’s a sample to take you to his blog . . .

Casual Friday Missionary Care Resources

Casual Friday Missionary Care Resources

Are you ready for this? I’ve got 22 (!) resources for you this week because…well because it was too hard to leave anything out. There’s everything from fund raising to MK raising, culture shock to re-entry, books and seminars and retreats. So here you go—have a feast!

The paradox of faith

Amy Young rattles our cages with this article on overcoming.

What if failure is staying and leaving is success?

We can all use a tune-up on our perspectives. Start with yours, then forward this to your friends.

The problem of porn

There…I’ve said it. We all know that pornography is a huge problem here in our culture. What we are probably more naïve about is the reality that many missionaries struggle with it, too. Women as well as men. Here is an online video course about breaking the bondage. You never know when someone you love will need this.
