Training event successful!
Mission International's teams training event took place on Saturday 4th June. Team members were given training on a wide range of subjects ranging from how to deal with a different culture and what they need to carry with them as well as how to share the Gospel with those they will serve during their deployment. All team members, for both the Burundi and the Haiti teams, were present and began to make team relationships with those they had met for the first time.
The training was delivered by Rev. David Robertson from St Peter's Free Church in Dundee (who also kindly provided the venue for the event), Richard Woods the Haiti team leader (see pic), Gervais Nyandwi a Burundian and member of the the Rema Team (MI Partners in Burundi and hosts for this year's team), and also Hugh Henderson the Director of Mission International.
Team members expressed how much they had enjoyed and benefited from the event that they now feel more prepared for their trip and feel inspired to serve God and reach out to those their team will serve during deployment.
