ATTRITION STUDY RESEARCH REPORT 2019
Fourteen mission agencies originally confirmed intent in participation; eleven agencies ended up providing data. As we built the study, we sought to gain not only data on attrition numbers, but also to garner reasoning behind the missionaries’ transition from the organization. When we interacted with the agencies, we discovered a wide range of systems for analyzing attrition. Some had very basic human resource practices for documenting separation, while others had more robust systems to seek information from the field, home office, and the worker on why the transition was taking place. We sought to provide a tool for data collection that would allow those without a system to create one and for those with a more mature data set to be able to transfer information easily.

ALDINGA BEACH RETREAT: A RESPITE MINISTRY
The Aldinga Beach Retreat is located in Aldinga Beach, South Australia, an hour’s drive south of Adelaide. The retreat house is modern and family-friendly, and has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It is sandwiched between the beautiful family-friendly Aldinga Beach and the Aldinga Scrub Conservation Park. The conservation park has many walking trails and is home to native plants and animals.
As a ministry of Missions Interlink, stays are offered at a significantly reduced cost for missionaries, pastors, and Christian workers who are in need of retreat - only $40 per night. The retreat house volunteers, Ben and Robyn, have experience in debriefing and counselling. They can provide debriefing or counselling upon request, or help connect guests with other Christian counsellors, psychologists or spiritual directors in the local area.
