Listening and Encouragement


Les and Priscilla Hirst


At its heart EdenRidge is a place for you, one of God’s dearly loved servants, to rest, relax and reflect. As you enjoy your time in this beautiful setting, remembering what God has done, is doing, and is yet to do in your life, it might be helpful to talk to someone. If so, we (Les and Priscilla) are available to spend some time with you. Throughout our ministry we have walked alongside missionaries in many settings, seeking to listen well, hopefully bringing additional perspective and an encouraging word; and always seeking to bring those reflections to the Lord for His guidance and direction.

Here at EdenRidge we have the opportunity to interact with missionaries of all ages, ministering in many different countries, often navigating a variety of complex issues. Sometimes they need to process past events or think through life-stage transitions. Sometimes they need to make decisions regarding family, placement, and/or ministry assignment and focus. Other times our discussions revolve around cultural dynamics and/or team and organizational relationships. Often it is all of the above because, well, life is like that! If this sounds like something you might find helpful please fill out the form below and we can coordinate a time to get together. We look forward to meeting you.
