When summer is just around the corner, what excites you the most? Warmer weather? Longer days of sunshine? BBQs and gathering with friends and family?
At One Challenge, summer means training, sending, and receiving. It’s time for summer programs! Each summer, the U.S. Mobilization Center gets ready to welcome new workers during Core (our training program). We prepare others to join their teams at Transition Orientation (TO). And we welcome returning mission workers for rest, renewal, and debriefing at our Personnel Enrichment Program (PEP).
It’s the best time of the year! We don’t often get to care for our workers face to face, but these programs are opportunities to connect and be in community with one another.
Pray with One Challenge
- Pray for the many who are leading sessions during training and TO. Pray they would have discernment and wisdom in preparing new and outgoing workers.
- Pray for our PEP debriefers and PEP staff as they care for our returning personnel. Many cross-cultural workers are drained and need a listening ear.
- Pray for the attendees. Pray they will be able to fully engage with the programs and let go of unneeded distractions.
