Coffee, anyone?… I’ll tell you when and where!


“So, being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you had become very dear to us.” 1 Thessalonians 2:8

I love how Paul talks here about how he, Sylvanus, and Timothy loved sharing their lives with the people of Thessalonica, people that they cared about very deeply. Not only did they serve them by sharing the gospel, but their deep care led them to share of their very selves.

You are all dear to me as women that I pray for and relate to in so many ways, and I hope you too have grown to care about the women who read and participate here as well (or, if you are new, that you too will soon grow to care about the women in community here). As I have grown to care all the more for you all, one thing that I would love to see happen is for us to have more opportunities to encourage one another and share our lives together.

Seeing as it is too long of a commute for us to all meet for coffee at an actual coffee shop, I wanted to “invite you to coffee” right here at Missionary Moms! Here’s how it will work:

-I will post some questions tomorrow about things that we would probably enjoy talking together about over coffee.

-Then, everyone who wants to participate will write their thoughts and experiences as a comment in that post.

-HERE IS THE IMPORTANT PART! If at all possible, DON’T read anyone’s comments until Wednesday! Hopefully that will give everyone enough time to participate if they want. (If you miss the Wednesday date, please still participate whenever is convenient!)

-Then, anytime after Wednesday, make yourself a nice cup of coffee or tea or whatever you enjoy, pull up a seat, and “go out to coffee” with some of your missionary mom friends as you read about each others lives! I’ll post a “Let’s meet for coffee” post on Wednesday to remind everyone. You can respond to each others comments there as well.

If you’d like, feel free to include your blog address or even your email if you feel comfortable (perhaps you have a secondary email address that you don’t mind giving out widely), and hopefully you will be able to connect with some new friends!  Also, please pray for one another as you feel led!

Are you free for coffee this week? I cant wait!


(P.S. Don’t miss Addie’s great post from yesterday if you weren’t around!)

    Hooray! What a fun idea! Can’t wait! I’ll post this link on facebook so other missionary moms can join us!

    Glad you like the idea! Would anyone else be interested in posting this on their facebook page? I am always looking for more ways to invite more moms to join in here, but I am not exceptionally skilled in knowing how to do that. Thanks Kelly!
