Dear missions, I wish you had told me…

“Dear Missions,

It’s been a while since we first started on this adventure together….It’s been good and I’m thankful for this opportunity, but there are a few things I wish you had told me before I boarded that first plane. So I’m writing you this letter with the hope that the next person to join you will know some of these things beforehand. And that those already with you will know that they are not alone.”

Packing 'life bags'

"Growing up, my dad used to share an analogy about the bags we pack in life," explained OMer Renette. "He said parents pack ‘life bags’ for their children, filling each bag with traditions, beliefs, perspectives and stories. The child repacks his/her bag as they interact with the world and have new experiences." What's in your life bag?
