Prepare for your cross-cultural experience!
Are you looking to be EQUIPPED for IMPACT?
Ready for a KICKSTART?
MIST is a weekend course where participants are stimulated to think and learn about the challenges of living and working cross-culturally, whether overseas or within Australia. MIST is designed for individuals, families or teams going short-term (3 weeks – 2 years).
Hear what two past participants had to say about their experience at MIST:
Some reflections on the MIST experience:
We were indeed blessed during the MIST weekend. I am surprised it is not a prerequisite. The facilitators during MIST showed me how much they loved the Lord. Their love for God is often portrayed without words, like the game we played in silence. Such an example to follow.
The aromatic food with rainbow colours prepared with loving hands; the amount of preparation and time spent to make our training not only enjoyable but also experiential. Our minds were renewed by the word of God; our hearts stirred by what God is doing in other parts of the world; our senses and stomachs bombarded by spices and flavours from different cultures. A feast for the mind, heart and soul. Indeed, we were blessed.
