living stones

SOS's primary call is to be a Ministry of Presence not a Ministry of Presents Our primary focus is in developing a long term relationship of mutual trust and respect with the indigenous Maya.

Sending Out Servants (SOS) living stones...our mission continues back home...


Frequently, team members return from their mission experiences among the indigenous Maya with a vague awareness that an "unidentified internal shift' has occurred within them. Experts tell us that these experiences require further reflection if we are to grow from them and discern what God wants us to learn through them.

With this in mind, SOS encourages returning team members to participate in a six week Mission Re-Entry Program called Living Stones. Each week participants receive by email a module that focuses on a topic to reflect upon for the week. To reap the most benefit from the reflection modules, participants are encouraged to journal. This is strictly between them and God. SOS's role is to be a conduit through which to help participants continue processing, preserving and integrating their mission experience into their daily life and to help them find a path to remaining faithful to what God has shown them through their mission experience and to who they have become.

"I have enjoyed the living stones modules. I am not finished, and take them slowly. They are good for keeping the mission alive and integrating it into daily life. Even though I am talkative, I am not into a lot of words when I pray. So, I focus on the Scripture and questions for reflection. The steps for quiet are great for anyone not used to praying in that way."


“Thank you for continuing to send the Living Stones Modules to me.  The latest one, Who is God?, stirred a need for a response in the form of a poem for me which I have attached.  Since, I don't have an opportunity for reflection in person within the mission community, I thought I would just pass it on to you for sharing.  If you wish to pass it on to others, please keep me anonymous just because my shyness surfaces when encountered with a broad audience”
