12) Budget-Friendly Retreat Locations?

Ashley recently wrote, “Sometimes Google isn’t that helpful when trying to find a location overseas to hold a worker retreat. What budget-friendly and/or missionary-friendly locations do other Brigada readers use? Particularly in Europe, North Africa, and Southeast Asia? And how many people can they accommodate? Thanks for your help!” Let’s throw a couple of ideas out there for Ashley by clicking “Comment” following the web version of this item. Thanks!

 

7) ELIM Retreats are 6-Day Experiences for Global Workers

Would you or your family benefit from attending one? You get spiritual “soul-care” in every way – mind, body, heart, and soul. Their June 2nd retreat in Green Lake, Wisconsin has already filled up, but you could still get into their September retreat in Eagle (Wisconsin) if you act fast. Learn more at…

1) Don’t Forget Emmaus Encounter

We mentioned last week that Emmaus Encounter is a debriefing ministry located in Montana (near Glacier National Park) for those in Christian ministry including missionaries, pastors and lay-people. It is a 5-day program offering listening space, time, and exercises that help you see Jesus in your journey, in the midst of pain, loss, injustice, confusion, disappointments, transition and weariness. This is a private, personal and sacred time together with only you (couple/single) and the debriefers. Don’t forget to contact them soon regarding upcoming debriefings that you might be able to attend.

7) Curious about Counselling Centers for Missionaries

RetreatMost missions strategists agree that member care is a significant part of missions and ministry health. This past week, we heard from a guy with a growing vision for starting a small business to provide a place for restoration, spiritual retreat and marriage and personal counselling opportunities for those working in Northern Africa and along the Mediterranean. He’s wondering if anyone would be willing to send him any current organizations or businesses operating retreat and/or counselling centres for missionaries (anywhere in the world) that he could use to investigate in his research.

10) Retreats for Global Women (Sent from North America)

Each retreat features self-care options, fellowship with 50+ other women working cross-culturally, worship, Bible teaching, laughter, and deeper connections in discussion groups.
