Which prize would you like?

I love that Jesus’ first miracle was at a wedding and involved taking care of the guests. Of all the miracles needed, of all the people who needed healing or injustice to address or freedom to offer. . . God chose a celebration and something that might not seem necessary to life: wine for guests. We have an extravagant God who isn’t blind to your pain, but He’s also not confined by it. He is the God of both/and, the already/not yet, a man of sorrows and the man of the hour at a wedding. So, in that vein of what may seen unnecessary, but apparently is also part of being human . . . let’s party!

Welcome to the second annual virtual parties for Christian Cross-Cultural Workers! (Just hearing about it? it’s not too late to join!)

This is how you are invited to a party:

1. You join the January challenge and are emailed the reflection packet.
2. You print off the “Reflecting on 2020, Preparting for 2021″ packet.
3. You plan to fill out the packet (no pressure to do it all!) with a spouse, friend, or God . . .

But then the kids are sick, there is an emergency, or social media sirens call out.

We understand that it’s easy to be well-intentioned and then life happens, and we do not want that to be your story! So, to help you, we are throwing four, count them FOUR, parties. When you join the challenge you will be sent a zoom link for the parties the day before the parties.

Here’s the deal for the party, you bring something to drink and we’ll bring the party prizes. The Global Trellis team members have each donated something related to their speicality to help YOU strengthen your own life trellis. AND two special friends (Velvet Ashes and Taking Route) have also donated prizes!

You could win:

—An hour of free Spiritual Direction (two winners, for yourself or a woman you know)
—An hour of free editing (for you or your TCK)
—An hour of free writing coaching
—A one hour “Clarity Session” around transition
—30 minute chat with life-hacks specialist (and wise parent) Jenilee (two available)
—A 6 hour “CultureBound for Church Communities” workshop (take it yourself or gift it to a supporting church!)
—Picture Design (picutre card, announcement, graduation)
—Velvet Ashes 2021 Retreat (two winners, for yourself or a woman you know)
—2 Global Trellis workshops (three winners)
—A TCK-Training workshop (two winners)
—A Language Learning Journal and Tote
—A 45 min brainstorming session with Stacey (it can be for a newsletter, piece of writing, idea for a book (fiction or non fiction), etc.)
—A one hour Financial Chat (not a consultation, but a place to ask questions and chat about finances)
—A one hour grief check in (not counseling, but a check-in)

So many fantastic prizes to add to the fun! See below which party each prize will be offered, you are welcome at all four of the parties!
