  Ways to Encourage Global Workers    

  • Learn about their family and work. Read their updates and thank them for keeping you informed.
  • Let them know you are praying for them. Personally in your time, or during your small group Bible Study, pray for one of our global workers
  • Encourage them. Tell them they are doing a great job and you are thinking of them
  • Send Birthday  and Christmas  greetings
  • Recommend a good book that might be an encouragement to them
  • Share what you are learning spiritually and how God is encouraging you in your walk with Him
  • Share a photo of your family, pet., or something you found interesting on Pinterest
  • Let them know it is okay to take a break from work and enjoy the country to which God has sent them. It is okay to have fun.
  • Send them something humorous. Laughter is good for the soul.

 Content Caution

This includes email, Facebook, WhatsApp, or any other social media driven communication. When writing someone in a sensitive country avoid using the words below.
