Family relationships...

When considering cross-cultural mission service, it is important to evaluate the health and vitality of your relationships with family members and others close to you. God can use these relationships to help you grow in trust, respect, sacrifice, humility, and forgiveness. Look for relational beliefs and behaviors that will help you stand strong during spiritual warfare.


Scripture to explore: Matthew 19, Galatians 5–6, Ephesians 4–6, 1 John 4:20–21


Wycliffe expects…

…that unmarried men and women have thought through the implications of serving as singles.

…that married couples and families are communicating well and agree about the direction that God is leading.

…that those who have been divorced are willing to discuss those circumstances openly with a Wycliffe representative. (Divorce does not necessarily preclude service with Wycliffe.)
