The topic of Assessing and Fostering Resilience in Missionaries was the topic at a gathering of mental health workers who focus in caring for missionaries in November, 2009. Repeatedly, speakers referred to the fact that to be resilient, missionaries need to have worked out a Theology of Suffering. One of the most comprehensive outlines of Biblical teachings on suffering is in this document from Ken Williams of International Training Partners. It is set up in such a way that it can be used as a study guide, as well as a resource for missionaries and leaders--as well as a teaching tool for work within our Japanese churches.
