Care for One Another
We trust in the Lord, but as a human organization, caring for one another is the source of our power. We, as a mission and individually as missionaries, shepherd each other. We love each other by doing what is best for one another. Many times that will mean a sympathetic ear and words of affirmation. At other times that will mean truth spoken in love frankly and directly. A helping hand can get us through a rough spot, but to make significant progress we must have our issues clearly identified and addressed. We will make mistakes in caring for each other, but we will keep trying until we get it right. The Lord has given us a fabulous opportunity, and we have banded together to take advantage of it. We need every member of our staff team, but we also need each member to be at his best and to be putting the team first. As we do this we develop energized missionaries who constantly re-energize each other. This gives us tremendous power.
