What is Biblical encouragement? Why is it essential in the pastoral care of missionaries? How and by whom can it be effectively expressed? Jan Whitmore (nee Rowland) and her colleague and friend, Mintie Nel, have pondered those questions for thirty years as they ministered to struggling missionaries. Now in their year of retirement from mission work, Jan tells their fantastic story of faith and discipleship and explains the surprising counsel for pastoral care that God gave through the heavenly pattern - the pattern of the Tabernacle of Moses. You can draw but one conclusion, God has a tender love for His workers, and He expects us to be involved!
For every Christian that seeks to know the ways of God and loves a good testimony, this book will thrill you. It challenges church pastors, home mission committees, mission agency leaders, member care personnel and the missionaries themselves to think again about improving member care.
