They watch your kids so you can take a much-needed date night, tell you when it’s time to take those parasite meds, or sit with you when the culture shock or ministry disappointments feel like too much.
Our team can be like our adopted family when we are very far away from relatives and friends during the holidays and throughout the year.
What do you do with your team to celebrate? Are there cookie baking extravaganzas, pajama parties or Christmas Eve services huddled together in a living room?
We love hearing about your traditions!
What traditions have you started with your teammates near and far while living cross-culturally? Share your images on Instagram this week using the hashtag #VelvetAshesTraditions. Tag your teammates and thank them for all they have done for you this year and make sure they check out our posts this week too!
