Missionaries ministering cross-culturally experience many exciting stories – stories and experiences they can share with their supporters, sending-churches and people ‘back home’.
Missionaries also experience struggles, doubts and fears as well as crisis situations, conflicts and discouragements – stories and experiences many missionaries have no place to process and no-one to share with.
One of the first things Jesus did after his resurrection was to meet two of his disciples as they were walking away from Jerusalem towards Emmaus.
As he walked alongside them, he asked the question looking at their downcast faces: What has happened?
He gave them the gift of allowing them to share their story. His disciples needed to process what had happened.
The process of guiding you to share what you have experienced and processing those experiences is called debriefing.
The Le Rucher Exchange at the Cross™ debriefing model was designed and is aimed for Missionaries having served cross-culturally. This 5-day debriefing model was created by LeRucher, an international ministry focusing on de-briefing, community development and ethnic reconciliation.
