As soon as I returned, Ricardo contacted me to begin our consulting partnership (vision mapping and strategic planning) with a missionary couple who had to leave their area for safety reasons and are looking to regroup. This has opened the door to a debrief as well as processing of loss and grief and unmet expectations.
Back to Member Care (pictures)
Our member care team has been meeting on Wednesdays again. We have been doing some planning for next year: setting up missionary training classes at the Language School 3 times in the spring and 3 times in the fall, considering a missionary training event for next fall, and brainstorming workshops for the annual missionary conference in February. When we finish using the DVD series for training, we will focus in on other skills we need to continue to provide member, missionary, care.
We were at the Language School and conducted the Cultural Adjustment class twice. I also met with a new missionary couple, who is learning Spanish, for a vision consultation. They have a ministry on their heart, but were not sure what is next.
I have been meeting with missionaries at the end and beginning of each phase of sabbatical and have emailed many vision mapping consultation packets.
I had a meeting with the head of the mission board of one of our missionaries. She was interested in member care and about the Honduran Fellowship member care team.
I had a meeting with a short term missionary who helps with security issues (Ezra821). We discussed the current state of missionary security and how they approach the subject as well as if there is any way the Ezra ministry can help support the Honduran Fellowship and the missionaries it supports.
Car Accident (pictures)
The good news is that Kjell and the kids are all ok. The bad news is that on the way to bring Bekah to a school field trip, at 3am, in the dark and fog, with tinted windows, after many days of rains and debris in the road, the car (Ford Edge) hit a boulder in the road. Insurance is not covering it. So, we owe about what we would have paid on a new(er) car. Please pray for miracle provision. We know that if they had been in a small car (our old one or even a newer one), not only would the car have been totaled, but they would have been really hurt. We are praising God for His protection.
