-Description – Moving and saying goodbye are frequent occurrences for missionaries and their families. How do we deal with the grief and loss that are a normal part of missionary life? How do we help MKs deal with the pain (our own and our coworker’s children)? This final session takes a look at these issues and offers some practical advice on being proactive in the frequent changes we confront as missionaries. We spend some time as a group practicing saying goodbye to each other and responding to any last minute questions. \\ Objectives:+Description – Moving and saying goodbye are frequent occurrences for missionaries and their families.

 Description – Each one of us at SEND has a different role and we are involved in various ministry activities, but at the very heart of why we exist as an organization is Jesus’s commission to make disciples of all nations. He wants every one of us to be intentionally developing relationships with unbelievers and doing what we can to cooperate with the Holy Spirit’s work (and with other believers) to move them toward Jesus and his calling for them. The Connect & Pray tool helps SEND members live out these values and collaboratively reach their Kingdom goals. Description – Each one of us at SEND has a different role and we are involved in various ministry activities, but at the very heart of why we exist as an organization is Jesus’s commission to make disciples of all nations.
