Be a 'safe space'

"This is what I pray as I meet with younger women," shared OMer Beth. "That I can be a safe space for them; that they can trust me, be honest with me and that I can speak God’s truth into their lives. I don’t know all the answers and I can’t heal the brokenness, but I can point them to Jesus who can do all that and more!"

Five things I learned from OM "old-timers"

Recently, I had the chance to attend the OM Middle East North Africa (MENA) Leaders Meetings. Even better, since I was there as an OM MENA Communications Intern and not a leader, I had the opportunity to talk with and interview many of the legends from OM’s past and present work in the MENA area. Their stories were often inspiring, at times terrifying, and always encouraging. While they all deserve to be told, looking back on the week, there are some common elements woven throughout each and all of them that jumped out and made me look at my own life in a new light.
