Why Missionary Debriefing?

Missionary debriefing is a relational and intentional process that provides an opportunity for a missionary to tell their story—by verbally processing past and recent events from their point of view, complete with their emotional responses at the time and since then. 

Why would cross-cultural workers turn down the gift of the missionary debrief? While the value of missionary debriefing is more known than ever, there is still reluctance to purposely set the time, and possibly finances, aside. Here are words missionaries have used after their time of debriefing:
Released
Renewed
Replenished
Restored
Readied
