When we read mission stories, whether old or new, we are inspired by the excitement and adventure of missionary life. We are captivated every time the missionaries’ jaw-dropping adventures are punctuated by awe-inspiring miracles and divine interventions. Somehow we come to the conclusion that the missionary life is a deeply spiritual experience. Sadly, the reality is that mission life is often more like a spiritual black hole than a spiritual mountaintop. It is so important that missionaries have a wealth of materials available to help keep our spiritual life growing and thriving. To this end, IWM is continually curating a library of podcasts, webinars and other resources to support you and your family in your spiritual journey.
