This Week’s Theme: The Veteran

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!

Did you know we pray for you in the community each month? Send us a DM on Instagram with your requests or use the hashtag #VelvetAshesPrayer.

    Just curious, how many years qualify someone as a veteran? I’ve been overseas 15 years now, until 2018 as a single woman. 🙂 Excited to read veterans’ stories. Though we shouldn’t put them on a pedestal, as sometimes Father calls us back to our home country, and our experience if that happens, is just as valuable.

What do you think?
