COUNSELING / DEBRIEFING / RETREATS
In the process of researching a variety of practical missions resources, we came across many websites with member care resources for debriefing, counseling, and encouragement for missionaries. These are being made available on the website, but please note that the majority of these resources have not been extensively screened prior to their inclusion here. Please use your own discernment as you prayerfully seek help from these organizations, and let us know if you find any to be particularly helpful or if you have any concerns about any organization included.
