Many global missionary women are depleted from living cross-culturally. That, coupled with family and ministry demands can leave them weary and in need of renewal. On this Midday Connection
Lorrie Lindgren and Cindy Judge join us to talk about Thrive, a ministry empowering and encouraging our global missionary women.

She has been a plenary speaker for the PTM and Connecting to Equip conferences. Lorrie has been published in Evangelical Mission Quarterly and teaches webinars on the topic of helping global women thrive. In 2010, she was privileged to be one of only 400 US delegates selected to participate in the Third Lausanne Congress held in Cape Town, South Africa.
