4) Mission to Missionaries Event in Gros Morne National Park —

International Alliance for Missions, Inc. is holding its third HSP-M2M Event this summer and you are invited to apply for this time of refreshing and relaxation. This is not a retreat during which you are expected to attend workshops, participate in discussions, etc. They call this an Event because you are able to spend quality time with the Lord in that secret place that you’ve sought after before but perhaps just couldn’t find. The dates are August 20th – August 25th, 2011 and the place is the Oceanview Hotel, Rocky Harbor, Newfoundland, Canada, located in Gros Morne National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site renowned for its spectacular views of mountain ranges. See the full explanation and all registration details at…

2) And a Great place for Missionaries to Stay in Comfort (Texas)

Yes, this is the *true* Comfort inn… Comfort, Texas, that is. This tip came from the same truly warm-hearted folks mentioned above. They recently stayed at Haven River Inn in Comfort, TX (40 min. outside San Antonio). This beautiful bed and breakfast on the Guadalupe River offers two nights free to pastors and missionaries, and with 14 rooms, plus a separate 3 bedroom cottage, it’s a lovely setting for a group retreat as well.  The staff was very kind and gracious.  Take a look at
