Humanitarian work can be extraordinary, fulfilling and purpose-driven; and in many cases may provide a cure for the emotional exhaustion many us feel at home. On the other hand, the stress and demands of providing care in low-resource settings can also cause these exact same problems. We will examine how medical mission work could be the cause OR the cure for burnout and how to prevent compassion fatigue.
Dr. Kristin Long will conduct a breakout on Saturday morning entitled, “Running on Empty: Wellness, Burnout, and Compassion Fatigue in Humanitarian Work”. This session will address the critically important and timely concepts of burnout and compassion fatigue in medical providers.
Come here Dr. Long and many more speakers at M32020. Register today! www.m3missions.com

Twenty-five years ago, 23.3 percent of the world’s population lived in hunger. Today, that number has dropped to 12.9 percent giving rise to the renewed hope that what once seemed unthinkable, is now within reach. The challenges are great, but the fight to eliminate malnutrition and hunger in the U.S. and around the world is one we can win. Come hear Dr. Dyer speak on how you can get involved in the work of eradicating global malnutrition and feeding the hungry.

Houston’s First believes “God has uniquely gifted and impassioned you to fulfill His Great Commission in ways that only you can. Houston’s First Missions is fulfilling this commission all around the city, nation, and world, and thousands have already joined in our vast and varied efforts.” This missions team is diverse in its approach with local missions, mission trips, and missionary care.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…” (Matthew 28:19) Jesus’ command was clear: His disciples were to go and teach others about Jesus and His message in the same way that Jesus Himself had taught them. Just as they had been discipled, they were to go and make disciples. Houston’s First Missions is absolutely, singularly dedicated to fulfilling Jesus’ commission. We believe that Jesus’ command to His disciples wasn’t a last-minute adage; it was the final, natural progression of their discipleship. It was the reason for which they were called. In order to make disciples, one must be discipled. Therefore, following Jesus’ model, Houston’s First Missions is committed to fulfilling the Great Commission through providing church members, missionaries, and mission organizations with the resources and opportunities they need to be and to make disciples.
