Caring for Parents

We are looking to research what resources there are for cross-cultural workers coping with having sick or elderly parents back home. Anything that talks about the stresses, the difficult decisions and how to make them, the trying to give meaningful care from a distance. All with the aim of preparing Christian workers for this challenging season that many go through at some point.

Feel free to offer any advice or resources here in this discussion or by email to

  • Greetings in Christ Jesus and God our Healer! Circumstances would that we here in South Africa now also look after aged parents. I recently did a short course on Palliative Care online with Open University. Honour your father and your mother. It does pose new considerations regarding the commitment to Congo River Mission.
