Caring For Missionaries When They Are Not Doing So Well - with Jenni Woodhouse and Stan and Clare Li

We send out missionaries. But sometimes it doesn’t work out. There’s a forced return home. Dashed hopes. And all sorts of understanding and support - from the mission agency, supporter churches, pastor friends and others.

Stan and Clare Lie were serving with the Church Missionary Society, lecturing in theology in the middle east, and serving with a church in Alexandria, before being called home during COVID.

Jenni Woodhouse is pastoral care consultant with the Church Missionary Society.

Length: 31mins
