Single and NOT Alone on the Mission Field
Paul, in 1 Corinthians, celebrates the choice that some make to serve as singles. As the church, we can join together with single missionaries to celebrate all that God is doing in their lives. In this session we will look at strengths of single life as well as some of the soul care needs of single missionaries. We will hear from several single missionaries with both short and long term experience. How can we, as supporters, celebrate the victories and strengths of singles on the field? How can we support the single missionary and the particular challenges they face? How are issues like trauma and burnout unique to singles? And how can we, as a member care community, identify and provide for them in areas of felt need? We will address the big issues as well as practical steps in how to care for our single missionaries around the world.
