'Life with God in a different land'

"Once, a friend back home messaged me and said, 'I’m so surprised you have internet. I thought you were struggling over there with no electricity out in the jungle,'" said OMer Ava. "Another friend when he heard I was making dinner said, 'I thought you guys had someone to do all your cooking, cleaning, shopping and all you have to do is ministry.' At first, I thought these comments were quite absurd, but then I realised that I would have thought the same thing if I wasn’t here."

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?
