    Special Episode | Self-care for God's Servants

    Special Episode | Self-care for God's Servants

    This special episode is a recording of a live event we hosted with Tony Horsfall on the topic of Self-care. To watch the video recording of the event, visit fieldpartner.org/self-care-event. 

    ‘Self-care for God’s Servants’ asks the question ‘Is self-care valid?’ and then looks practically at ways in which we may care for others without neglecting our own needs. In particular, it looks at the discipline of stopping, and the practice of sabbath.

    Tony served as a missionary with OMF in East Malaysia, and later headed up EQUIP, a missions training programme based in England. For a number of years, he was Pastoral Carer for MAF, visiting their teams in Africa on a regular basis. Tony has a God-given passion to help those in Christian service sustain themselves over the long haul of ministry. He is an author, retreat leader, mentor and friend. He has written ‘Working From a Place of Rest’ and ‘Rhythms of Grace’.

    After being baptised at only 5 years old, Katie felt a clear calling to serve in Asia in her late teens and ended up in Taiwan doing her masters. During this time, she put down roots with a local church, starting a prayer room in her house with some friends and seeking God's will for their area, in Danshui, near Taipei. It was laid on Katie's heart that she was to dedicate her life to this area and, after meeting her Taiwanese husband, they planted a church in the area which they now lead. 

    During this interview, Katie explains her heart to walk in God's calling, even at the expense of other dreams, she gives insight into seasons of seeking God and she shares her desire to facilitate opportunities to step out in faith, as Jesus sent out His disciples in Luke 10.

    Ruth Van Reken

    Ruth Van Reken

    Christine interviews Ruth Van Reken, member care expert and world-renowned author of bestseller 'Third Culture Kids'. Learn more about Cross-Cultural Kid here.
     

    Ruth discusses her childhood as a TCK - 'Third Culture Kid' and how she did not come to terms with the impact on her life until adulthood. At the age of thirty-nine, she began journaling, trying to understand the full impact of my childhood. Eventually, this journaling became 'Letters I Never Wrote', later re-published as Letters Never Sent. Through that, she not only looked at her story but met and interacted with countless TCKs and adult TCKs (ATCKs) of all backgrounds and nationalities as well. 

    Ruth had a desire to be a missionary, which did not go completely as she would have planned it, but throughout a variety of trials, she has learnt much about trusting God and overcoming the difficulties of her upbringing. She is amazed to find just how far-reaching her work has been - not just to expats and refugees, but even children of cross-cultural marriages!  This fascinating, honest and encouraging interview is a worthwhile watch for anybody with involvement in cross-cultural work.
