This past week I was at a weeklong training session for missionaries at the Wesleyan Church Headquarters in Indiana where the Global Partners’ offices are. (you get bonus cool points when you say headquarters) I already knew Nicole, who will be going to Albania with me, and Lauren, who will be going to Zambia. I also got to meet Sean and Sam who will be going to Australia. For all of us, this was the last segment of training before leaving for the field. Which means we are that much closer to leaving!
I have so many things to tell about the training and I learned so much but I am still processing everything. But one thing I will say is I left much more encouraged and better prepared for the field!
We all stayed at the Shunem House which is basically the best place ever run by Jim and Jeanette, the best people ever. Shunem ministries provides housing for missionaries. Actually, thanks to Jim and Jeanette, they provide a home for missionaries to stay during their home ministries. Nicole and I came early to work on a promotional video for Shunem Ministries. It is not finished yet, but when it is, don’t worry because you’ll be able to see it here.
So to sum up my week, let me use some pictures : )
