Upcoming ReEntry InterMission
February 10-11, 2017 in Nashville, TN
Missionary families who have recently returned are encouraged to join us for two days of refreshing, equipping, and gaining tools and insights for adjustment. Please register online or use our contact us form for more information.
The event takes place all day Friday and Saturday at Hillsboro Church of Christ.
Global Reunion, a camp hosted for Third Culture Teens and their families, will be held July 24-28, 2017. Separate camps will be held for Teens 13-20, parents of teens, and younger siblings 5-12 (if their parents are present). In 2014 we hosted our largest camp ever with 155 people. Because of this, numbers will be limited this year. Plan now to attend on the campus of Oklahoma Christian but be sure to register early to obtain a place. Early Bird registration for cheaper registration will close June 15. Register before June 15 to save $25 each. No registrations will be accepted after July 1. Use our contact us form if you have questions. Register when you decide to come.
InterMission South Pacific!
InterMission South Pacific was held July 1-5, 2013 for missionaries in Australia and the South Pacific. The venue was south of Sydney, in Wollongong, Australia. (Look for photos). The next InterNational InterMission has not yet been scheduled. For information on how to participate, please contact us. Invitations are currently going out. Please register.
We hosted a ReEntry InterMission October 19-20 near the campus of Oklahoma Christian.
From being evacuated for safety reasons in the Kurdish region of northern Iraq, to waving goodbye to beloved islanders on Vanuatu, returned missionaries recounted their stories at the Reentry InterMission held at MRCC, October 19-20. These stories highlighted various experiences from 7 different countries, and yet in some ways the stories were remarkably the same. Missionaries share the common joys of winning souls to Christ and then the common sorrows of bidding their spiritual children in the faith farewell. In the great battle for men’s souls, our missionaries are soldiers of Christ on the front lines. These heroes often return wounded and in need of help and healing.
While the InterMission Ministry provided tools to help with the transition process, participants and facilitators were blessed with delicious steaming pots of soup, sandwiches, salads, and sweet treats provided by Memorial Road members to express love for missionaries and their work of spreading the Good News around the world. Representatives of the eldership and the Missions Committee came to meet and welcome the participants. We are continually grateful for Memorial Road’s part in providing our missionaries a warm place to find welcome, healing, and equipping for their next steps in living out God’s purpose.
