Nurturing a Long-Distance Relationship on the Mission Field: Part 1

Distance amplifies normal relationship struggles and areas of friction like differing expectations, miscommunications, scheduling challenges, balancing work/life, etc. Add the unpredictable, unique challenge of full-time ministry and missions life, and it’s a high-stress environment in which to nurture a healthy relationship. 

The good news is, it’s hard, but not impossible. 

Two are better than one

Working in communications, half of my job involves being out and about visiting different ministries to conduct interviews and capture photographs. The second part is taking everything I hear and see on those visits and sharing it with the world via newsletters, stories, blog posts, etc., all of which can be done from home. Maybe I would accomplish more working in solitude, but if I did, I would be missing out on something vital: relationships.
