Many moons ago there was a certain brand of cider with the sales line: "What a refreshing change".
We reckon that this could be a good way to describe Christians Abroad.
In our recent meeting it was such a pleasure to be asked things like:
"How can we partner together to better serve the church?"
"What are your expectations of us?
"What is Tree of Life hoping to gain from this trip?"
These are refreshing questions to be asked by the leaders of an organisation that really cares about and for us and they are questions we've never once been asked before!
Our favourite though has to be:
"How can we serve you better?"
Excuse me? You mean we don't have to feel grateful and privileged to be associated with you?
