Missionaries might encounter multiple safety issues such as robberies, theft, insurrections, natural disasters, and others.
In moments like this, local families have a stronger support network. Extended family, intricate knowledge of the language, a net of connections — all advantages that expatriate missionaries may not have readily available.
The current global crisis can possibly make local situations worse leading to shortages of food or other complications. As a result, you may face unexpected challenges and dangers.
Now, we don’t want to create any unnecessary fear, but we do want to share with you best practices to handle emergencies of various kinds.
According to the World Health Organization, fear, worry, and stress are normal responses to perceived or real threats, and at times when we are faced with uncertainty or the unknown. And so it is normal and understandable that people are experiencing fear in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dear Student Missionary,
Welcome back home!
Even though your return at this time was rather an emergency response to the current situation in the world, we deeply trust that the Lord is sovereign in all of our lives.
Now that the reentry program is over, we still want to make the following resources available to you.
Feel free to leave us a comment below if you have any questions or suggestions.
Many missionaries work in places where the language is different from their native tongue.
This requires them to study a whole new language. Learning a new language allows for experiencing new ideas, exercising the mind, benefiting from cultural diversity, developing a deeper level of empathy and increase social relations at work and with the community.
Featured Theme Pages
Our goal is to help you go even deeper than attending an individual webinar event would allow.
With that, we present to you the IWM Featured Theme Pages.
Each page is a collection of all resources on this website—webinar sessions, blog posts, podcast episodes, courses and series—around a specific topic of interest.
Below is a quick sample. Slide to the left or to the right to get the idea.
