Where can I help?

Cause Way Thursday
. . . . .
There are numerous causes and organizations that need help to fulfill their mission. Just as they need to continually reassess the work, so do I. Am I currently serving God's kingdom where and how He is calling me? I need to occasionally take a little extra time and ask God, again, to show me where he wants to use my talents.

Is it time for you to reassess, also?

Here are a few places to consider.
. . . . .
Catholic Medical Mission Board (CMMB)

CMMB fulfills its mission by: developing and managing healthcare programs; providing medicines and supplies; training indigenous healthcare providers; recruiting and placing medical volunteers; and responding to emergencies.

FROM Mission to Mission

Cross-Cultural Re-Entry and Re-Discovery for Mission
FROM Mission to Mission provides a network for laity, sisters, brothers, priests and ministers who have been involved in cross-cultural or global ministry. FROM helps its members by counseling and coaching missioners during their time of "reverse culture shock," offering periodic re-entry workshops and retreats, convening regional and national gatherings of missioners, publishing and distributing booklets and tapes pertinent to transition issues, circulating a directory of member missioners' names and addresses, and publishing a periodic newsletter. FROM's goal is to ease the re-entry process through sharing the joys, angers, fears and frustrations that mark the missioners common experience upon re-entry.
