RE-VIEW

RE-VIEW is a five-day period of reflection for cross-cultural workers and their families in transition. Opportunity is given to process the missionary journey with experienced cross-cultural workers who care and to prayerfully consider re-entry and gain perspective on the next phase of life. This retreat is developed based on the principles acquired at Mission Training International's Consultation on Debrief and Renewal (CODAR) program in Palmer Lake, Colorado.

*We believe strongly in the value of debriefing and currently subsidize the cost of RE-VIEW by $225 per adult and $90 per child to reduce the costs from  $750 per adult and $390 per child.  This is because of generous help from the CMKN/MORE Network and other donors. We encourage home churches to consider helping with this subsidy through donations.

Missionaries transitioning from living cross-culturally have stories of joys and challenges. Debriefing their experience honours God’s call by recognizing and celebrating His fingerprints along the journey.  A third party debriefing will provide


Dr Debbie Lovell-Hawker from the Oxford University Psychiatry Department states, “Providing emotional help… brings people to greater health and healing. Research indicates that some people who do not receive a debriefing feel devalued. Those who receive a debriefing tend to find it a positive experience and have fewer trauma-related symptoms.
