Tragedy can strike at a moment’s notice, leaving lives in disarray. Sometimes the scars left behind — whether physical or emotional — can take months or years to heal. But with the help of a caring team, and a God who loves us more than we can know, healing can be found.
A cooperative inter-agency service called the Mobile Member Care Team is the prayer focus of this issue of the Intercessor.* Through the work of this Team, missionaries are receiving the training helpful to grow resilient communities. And they are building the support structure needed to provide quick and timely care for traumatized colleagues.
*Intercessor is a bi-monthly newsletter encouraging prayer for the work of Bible translation. Each issue contains in-depth information and related prayer requests focused around a special program, initiative or present-day challenge. It is an excellent tool for personal devotions as well as for small group meetings with a missions focus.
