We are so thankful for the men and women who have gone before us on this cross-cultural journey, who’ve been on the field for decades or filled us with inspiration to keep going ourselves.
We are featuring posts this week from those veteran workers as we honor them and continue to learn from their wisdom.
If you don’t consider yourself a veteran, what is one question you would love to ask them? How would you like to thank them for their service, for the doors they have opened for you?
We hope you will interact in the comments this week, but also think about ways to connect with the long-term workers who are near you, or that you know in other places. Make a phone call, send an email, schedule an iced coffee date and hear their stories. Learn from their experiences and let the Father use that encouragement right where you are in your journey.
Also join us on Instagram this week, and make sure you use the hashtag #VelvetAshesTheVeteran or #VelvetAshes!
