Member Care from an Asian Perspective

EMQ » April–June 2022 » Volume 58 Issue 2

By Belinda Ng

I am privileged to be part of a pastoral care team to missionaries in East Asia constituent countries serving globally. We represent a spectrum of seasons of ministry and cross-cultural experiences. As one colleague shared: “The best care has been that the team have been listening with attentive ears, helping us to process our emotions (which have been hidden most of the time) triggering thinking from various perspectives. Practical assistance, thoughts, praying together as well as sharing tears and laughter then become a shared journey and experience.”
