Safe or Unsafe - Which one are you? 

Missionaries long to tell their full story, but they often ask, “Who can I trust?”  Safe people are those who draw us closer to being the people God intended us to be.  Cross-cultural workers find themselves having few people, especially from the local church where they can share their deepest issues of life.  The fear of losing financial support or the fear of being pulled off the field can hinder such depth of relationship.  During our breakout session we will explore how a theology of grace can serve as a foundation to build safety.  We will suggest and discuss some practical steps a church can take toward being a place of safety.
