How we come alongside

Sometimes, the spirit of the minister is as important as the content. For Paraclete’s formal methodology, see the side panel. Here are a few highlights.

With Encouragement From Nepal, after a week with missionaries one Paraclete couple got this feedback:

“We love you guys! I can’t begin to express how encouraging and refreshing it was to have you come out to visit and serve us. Thank you … You guys rock!” … …   “Thank you so much for your life of ministry and sharing it with us. What a blessing.”

With Love A handwritten note to a Paraclete associate after leading a small group:

“You have a unique ability to tie things together and see the bigger picture. You always make everyone’s input feel like ‘wisdom’ had been spoken. Thank you for your kindness, for your insight, your consistency and for your unconditional love.”

By Modeling what we Teach After co-teaching a marriage seminar, a Paraclete couple got this feedback from an African district bishop:

“I have had very positive feedback from my leadership team about your content, but especially about the fact that you taught together – something they’ve never seen before—because that model challenged them about ministering and working together as husband and wife.”

By Journeying with those we Mentor In some mentoring relationships, it’s hard to tell which person is the mentor. One Paraclete associate got this email from a prayer partner:

“Just wanted to stop in your inbox and say ‘thank you’ for being on the journey with me, praying with and for me and sharing yourself with me. [You helped remind me] that I DO BELONG, AM HEARD AND LOVED. I thank God for you walking the journey with me.”
