WHAT IN THE WORLD IS BRIGADA?

Brigada Logo Brigada, pronounced “bree-GAH-dah” (rhymes with armada), is the rough equivalent of a “brigade” — in Russian, Spanish, Portuguese, Albanian and even Filipino! Founded 25 January 1995, the idea is to stand side by side to pass buckets of hope for those most in need of Christ’s eternal message! Check out nearly 5 years of weekly back issues at http://www.brigada.org. See recent back issues and links at http://www.eGroups.com/list/brigada-today. Brigada Today is compiled by Doug Lucas DLucasatteamexpansiondotorg  (DLucasatteamexpansiondotorg)  , Louisville, KY.

WHY 2K!? STEM THE TIDE: BRIGADAFEST 2000

Brigada Logo So why, after 2000 years, would there still be 2000 people groups, tribes, castes, and kindreds without sufficient numbers to evangelize their compatriots? In our opinion, this is the real Y2K crisis. Want to make a difference? Why not attend BrigadaFest 2000 in Louisville, KY, Feb. 3-5. Stem the tide of the “Why 2K!?” crisis! This meeting is especially designed for

  1. missions mobilizers to share “shop talk”,
  2. church leaders to discover ways and means of adopting and reaching those without Christ’s message and
  3. bringing together “a” and “b”.

Hear Caleb Project on people group advocacy, learn about PACE (a prayer-based approach that follows a special church-oriented strategy for accomplishing Mission), and sit down with Interdev to learn about forming international partnerships. Register on the web by going to http://www.teamexpansion.org or write Angela AKeeranatTeamExpansiondotorg  (AKeeranatTeamExpansiondotorg)   in Louisville, KY.

--------------------------------------

MUSLIM PRAYER FOCUS BEGINS IMMEDIATELY!

praying hands Coinciding with Christmas 1999 and the beginning of Y2K, millions of Christians worldwide will again humbly learn about, intercede for and reach out with God’s love to our “biggest” religious neighbor–the Islamic world. As Muslims seek to honor God and fulfill one of their religion’s major obligations, we will ask God to indeed draw near to them. Booklets are available in over 25 languages and the N. American English edition is in full color this year. For more information about the 30 Days Muslim Prayer Focus, write wcnatxcdotorg  (wcnatxcdotorg)  , or call toll-free if in the USA (or via Net2Phone) (888)WCN-NEWS.

UPDATE ON JOSHUA PROJECT PEOPLES

Joshua Project 2000 logo Dan the man, from AD2000 & Beyond, wrote this week to update us on the status of the Joshua Project List of Unreached Peoples. He’s currently listing 1596 peoples with 1118 having no church of 100 reported. Together, some 542 have no on-site planting team, and 188 haven’t even been claimed yet. We’ve still got some work to do! But look how far we’ve come!!!

DYNAMIC EQUIPPING OF THE CHURCH

WE FINALLY GOT A CHECK FROM IGIVE.COM

dollar sign Okay. It’s for real. We got our first check from iGive.com this past week. Granted it was only $12, but hey… that’s $12! They have tons of shopping sites there . . . and you can add others. Just go to http://www.igive.com first, then use the links there to connect to other sites to buy toys, electronics, and more. Your designate your shopping points to your favorite non-profit (make sure yours is registered there first!), who then gets a check, not unlike a frequent flyer awards program! It doesn’t cost the consumer a dime to participate… but could result in great gains for the non-profit . . .like . . .maybe a $12 check! :-) (Thanks for the reminder Eric!)

HERE’S HOW TO TAKE GOODS TO THE FIELD

Larry had to know. So he asked! We put the word out on Brigada Today (September 24, 1999) and he got 22 responses… in 4 general categories (Detailed Packing Tips, Container Recommendations, Keep It Simple, and Shipping Agents/Consultants). Folks told him about trunks, boxes, barrels, Rubbermaid trashcans, cubical computer boxes, tea chests, hockey bags, bicycle boxes and even shipping agents/consultants — the works! Several individuals gave detailed packing and travel tips. And some gave a caution to seriously consider what message the things you take can send to the people of your host country, with reference given to the article “18 Barrels and 2 Big Crates” from the April 1992 issue of Evangelical Missions Quarterly. A word to the wise. To get the full report, write to: packingatbrigadadotworldchurchesdotorg  (packingatbrigadadotworldchurchesdotorg)  . Thanks Larry!

These texts are offered freely to any missionary or worker who can use them in their own situation – either in easy English or translated into another language. Translation is easier because of the easy jargon/idiom-free nature of the English version. Considerable freedom is given to modify material for local needs.

GLOBAL GLIMPSE FROM CHINA

world globe A Christian communicator asked a Chinese pastor for prayer requests about the persecution there. He answered, “Please do not pray that the persecution will end but instead pray that God will give us strength to endure it. Persecution makes Jesus more attractive to the unbelievers and makes Christians stronger in their faith. Please pray that God will grant our vision to see 40,000,000 people come to Christ from 1 Dec 1999 to 30 Jan 2000. For two months, we are asking every believer to win 3 people to the Jesus and each leader to win 5 people.”
(Source: Wolfgang Fernandez of Dawn Ministries, via CMDNet Weekly Update, November 14, 1999, http://www.cmd.org.nz)
Global Glimpse is gathered occasionally by John Hanna, Caleb Project, Littleton, CO.

UNLIMITED WEB PAGE HOSTING FOR FREE

WebWatch That’s right… Ray has found a place on the web that will offer that and more at: http://unit1.myfreeoffice.com/mfo/signup.cgi?sponsor=raymholt Note that Ray is serving as sponsor… (so we presume he gets some kind of credit from your using this URL :-) )… but the free services include unlimited web page hosting, free-for-life unlimited space domain hosting, web page design wizard, fax to email, fax to anywhere in US, two email accounts, Office 2000 Compatible Software, autoresponder messaging, mailing list manager, graphics library, group chat, bulletin board messaging, document sharing, online scheduling, technical support, and more. I checked out this service and it indeed appears to offer all these services . . . and the only downside I could find is that you will receive quite a bit of commercial ads from MyFreeOffice sponsors. Plan on at least one per day… and maybe more… from various vendors hoping to catch your attention. So . . .for now, I think I prefer the eGroups model — where the only ad is the tiny one at the bottom of this newsletter. But you might like some of the other perks, so feel free to check it out! Thanks Ray!
