  1. “IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE” — :-) Remember that scene at the end, when Jimmy Stuart’s character is bolstered up by all those townspeople? He takes encouragement from the fact that so many from the community would pitch in to help out the “Savings and Loan.” Well guess what: this past week, I felt like “George”! What an incredible encouragement it was to receive 12 different “PayPal” gifts that added up to $575, plus a couple of other notes promising $300 more in the near future! And most all urged me to say more about our hopes of bringing on a secretary that could help us with getting these newsletters out on time. (My own time would continue to be volunteer.) So, by faith, she’s resigned her previous job and she’ll show up ready to roll on August 18th.

  3. IF WE BUILD A BRIGADA SECRETARY, SHE WILL COME — So then this Brigada participant named “Paul” writes, “Brigada has been a wonderful force in the kingdom for networking, which I’m sure you know. I’m afraid most of us missionaries are so used to getting things for free – – at least, free to us (somebody has to pay) that it takes a paradigm shift to think of supporting even something as helpful to us as Brigada is. When you said only $500 had come in :-( I was ashamed for all of us freeloaders! How about considering a fundraising drive once a year or so to try to raise the next year’s budget???? We need Brigada!!!!” [blush] [resolute sigh] So. Ahem. Here we go. [drum roll] What we need is $1300/month for 12 months. That’ll get Brigada a secretary. That’s it. U$S 15,600. Can we do it? So far, we have $1250.

  5. IMAGINE LIFE WITH A HUMAN BRIGADA HELPER — Imagine someone there, ready to help you with Brigada questions and subscription help. Imagine Brigada Todays on time!!! :-) This is where it all begins! Just log on at http://www.brigada.org and click on “Sponsor” at the bottom of the page. Donate $25 or $250 or $2500 — whatever amount you desire — from your church, your company, or your wallet. Donate once a year… or once a month (please let us know). You can even make the gift anonymous, if you’d prefer. (Please let us know how you’d like your name to appear on the sponsors’ page.) Use PayPal, or send a check according to the instructions at the bottom of that sponsorship page. And once more, to those who donated last week, thanks for your partnership! It’s a wonderful life! :-)

  6. MULTICULTURAL TEAMS WORKSHOP IN CYPRUS IN OCTOBER — If your mission is like the one for which I work, you’re probably seeing more and more nationalities in your teams. This factor has brought several questions out on the table, many of which we’re still addressing. Well if some of those questions are unanswered in your own work, now there’s help. Sign up for “The Dynamics of Multicultural Teams and Partnerships” workshop led by Dr. Lianne Roembke, who brings 28 years of experience and research to bear on helping teams relate and work well together. Author of “Building Credible Multicultural Teams,” she has designed this workshop for mission leaders, HR and Member Care staff and cross- cultural workers. It will be held in Limassol, Cyprus, October 23-28, 2003. As a new component this year Dr. Roembke is offering Step One for facilitator training of the M-C Teams Workshop. You won’t want to miss Cyprus in October! Reserve your place by sending a USD 100 or EU 90 check payable to “Scan InterAct (Cyprus) Limited”. Hotel (half-board, 3 stars near beach!) costs CYP 112 per person (USD 215 at present rate) payable on arrival. Email Kerry <kbuttramatpoboxdotcom> or call +357 25 822970 for more details. To register send your name, contact info and check to: (Mr) Kerry Buttram, PO Box 51939, CY3509 Limassol, Cyprus. </kbuttramatpoboxdotcom>

  7. VIRUS WRITERS GET DEVIOUS — Can you believe the advances the virus writers are making in being devious, derelict, and deadly? I mean, take this message I received this morning: “I would like to inform you about important information regarding your email address. This email address will be expiring. Please read attachment for details.” You open the 28K attachment, and — bang — you’re dead. … or rather… your laptop’s dead. Now by itself, this message would be unimaginative. But the tricky part about *this* message is that it comes from “adminatyourdomaindotcom”. So these virus writers are perusing the web with their “spider software”, finding companies that list a “Contact us” domain name, then they’ve harnessed this wonderfully ugly sub-routine that changes the email’s “From:” address to something that looks very familiar to you… something you think you can trust. So… boys and girls… let’s keep that antivirus software up to date, shall we? Don’t even *think* about operating on the Internet without the latest subscription to Norton or McAfee or whatever you use that you trust. It’s just an evil world out there. Yikes. Masquerading as our system administrator. What’ll they think of next! :-)

  8. HOW DO WE BYPASS YAHOOGROUPS’ ADS? — We get mail. Regularly. And one of the common inquiries we receive is… “How does Brigada Today manage to appear without the typical YahooGroups advertising?” You know… the x10 camera and the scantily-clad young lady? … or the palm-reader? Well here’s the mystery-solved. You see, ages ago, back when Brigada used to live on the “eGroups” server, we brokered a deal whereby we bought out the ads with a fairly nominal fee. Not long afterward, eGroups was swallowed up by YahooGroups and, for who knows what reason, some tech-guy (or some management-type) decided to honor the “grandfathered” deals. Since that time, to our knowledge, YahooGroups has never offered a similar “buy out”. But — thank God — they continue to honor ours, even though the only thing remaining of the former company is my old eGroups t-shirt. So… I’m not sure how that helps current group moderators. Some have said, “You must be living right!” :-) Others probably complain, because if they want to buy one of those little X10 cameras or get their palms read, they have to look elsewhere. :-) Oh well. They can deal with it, right? :-)

  9. MAGAZINE DESIGN COURSE — The Magazine Training Institute announces a Design for Magazines course to be offered in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Nov. 2-6. The course is open to Christian magazine publishers, staff members, and freelance designers who work with Christian magazines. The course is subsidized, so tuition and room and board costs are minimal. For more information, write <infoatmagazinetrainingdotcom> or check MTI’s website at http://www.magazinetraining.com . MTI has been offering conferences and courses for Christian magazine staff members since 1989. </infoatmagazinetrainingdotcom>

  10. BECOME AN ENGLISH TEACHER — This one month course, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), gives the student excellent training in techniques for teaching English, techniques that are useful world-wide.

  1. LIFE’S A BLUR — Is it just me, or is the pace picking up for you too? No, we didn’t die here at Brigada… but I’ll admit that life is a blur! :-) And, despite some passionate appeals for sponsorships to help cover the cost of a secretary, I believe our total sponsorship income for Brigada throughout the first 6 months of 2003 will total out to something just short of $500. So here’s the deal. If Brigada Today means something to you, please log on at: http://www.brigada.org and click on “Sponsor” at the bottom of the page. First please take a look at the kind-hearted souls who are trying to help us forge on … and then… please join them! The amount isn’t as crucial. Donate $25 or $250! From your church, your company, or your wallet. You can even make the gift anonymous, if you’d prefer. (Just send us an email with that instruction.) Use PayPal, or send a check according to the instructions at the bottom of that sponsorship page. We’ll certainly appreciate it… and crank out more missions resources all the more. Thanks for your partnership!

  2. HOW DO WE TRAIN THE TRAINERS!? — Mark href="markdotnaylorattwudotca"><markdotnaylorattwudotca></markdotnaylorattwudotca> <markdotnaylorattwudotca> has it right. He’s trying to figure out “how do we train the trainers?” In a recent email, he asked, “In establishing an experienced based cross- cultural training program for missionaries, the key factor is the enthusiasm and ability of the mentor to guide the process in the cross- cultural context. Are there resources: books, courses, websites, etc. which would be of help in training missionaries to be successful mentors of interning missionaries?” Do you see his point? To prepare a new generation of missionaries, how can we equip the *current* generation to be helpers? Mark will prepare a report for us once he’s finished editing your responses. Be sure and write him in the next two weeks so you can be a part of that report. We’ll make that report available here on Brigada. Thanks Mark! Very relevant question! </markdotnaylorattwudotca>

  3. YWAM DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING SCHOOL — Youth with a Mission in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, USA is offering a 5 month school for people aged 17 to 35 aspiring to learn more about the character and ways of God, how to hear God’s voice, and about God’s heart for the nations. A 3 month lecture phase is followed by a 2 month outreach. Dates are September 24, 2003 through March 3, 2004. For more information, e-mail href="%3Cywampaatcomcastdotnet%3E"><ywampaatcomcastdotnet></ywampaatcomcastdotnet> or see the website: http://www.ywampa.org.

  4. MK HOME PROVIDES UNDERSTANDING AND RESOURCES TO RETURNING MKs — MKSTAY, hosted by career missionaries Mark Tidwell and Dedria Davis- Tidwell, offers a home for high-school and college-aged MKs whose parents serve overseas. Mark and Dedria have years of experience in providing MKs and their families with understanding, care and resources to help MKs thrive and not just survive in America. At MKSTAY, MKs may stay from overnight to a few years and have access to personal transportation; educational, financial and career guidance; biblically- sound and missions-minded local churches; a network of Christian counselors; and experiential knowledge of life skills. Check them out at http://www.mkstay.org or email <infoatmktaydotorg> for more details on how to settle your MKs in a trustworthy and supportive living situation. </infoatmktaydotorg>

  5. ESL TRAINING — Improve your English by attending this three month immersion course at the Youth for a Mission facility in Lebanon, PA, USA. The next school is scheduled for September 29 through December 19, 2003. For more information, see the website: http://www.ywampa.org , or e-mail <ywampaatcomcastdotnet>. </ywampaatcomcastdotnet>

  6. NEW SPANISH BIBLE SOFTWARE — Here’s some new software for those needing the Bible in Spanish. Logos Bible Software Series X (Biblioteca De Estudio Biblico) with the Libronix search engine, is the most complete and affordable Spanish Bible software available! Includes 30 titles worth more than $600 dollars in equivalent print editions. See http://www.logos.com/prepub/products/default.asp?pid=56 for book list. This is the same search engine used in Series X collections, is user friendly and works much like the Internet. Simply enter a passage or topic and click “Go” to find Bibles, commentaries, topics, parallel bible versions etc. If you are interested in Bible software in English, check out the demo online at: http://www.Logos.com/demo . Compatible with Logos 2.0 and Logos Series X. Spanish books cannot be purchased individually. Requires Windows 98 and above, 128 Ram, 300 Pentium processor and 68 MG hard drive space.

  7. SPECIAL HEALTH INSURANCE RATES FOR SINGLE WOMEN –- International insurance companies have always made single women working overseas pay the same rates as married women. That has changed. Now several companies are offering discounted rates for single career women working outside the USA. This discount can save the single woman worker as much as 20-25 percent on annual health insurance premium. For information contact <jeffatgninsurancedotcom> or call 480/813-9100; Toll free in USA: 866/636-9100. Visit http://www.overseashealthinsurance.com . </jeffatgninsurancedotcom>

For those who are already using version 2.0, you can easily run the upgrade and please also note the new web address. If you have any questions, feel free to email <aldotschaueratnetzerodotnet>. </aldotschaueratnetzerodotnet>

  9. WEB EVANGELISM TRAINING — Online Evangelism is a new discipline, and no formal training courses seem to exist for it yet, although plans do exist for future courses. If you are a training institute and interested in adding a Web Evangelism course to your current curriculum, or are a missionary or interested in taking a course, see: http://www.gospelcom.net/guide/resources/training.php

  1. SAFE DRINKING WATER FOR MISSIONARIES — In the 2003/05/09 issue of Brigada Today we may have given a wrong impression on the type of goods TealBrook supplies to missionaries. Although they do have some camping gear, maybe we put them on the spot a bit much. :-) The primary thing they do is water purification. TealBrook has systems for individuals on a short term trip to use, for a large work team or for the career family living in a jungle hut or a high-rise flat. For the past twelve years TealBrook has specialized in helping missionaries with safe drinking water in virtually every third world country. Visit their web page at http://www.tealbrook.com/ , call them from the US or Canada at 1-800- 222-6614 or 651-365-7714. Email them at <infoattealbrookdotcom> . We appreciate any business you can send their way, since they’ve helped underwrite the cost of a future “someday secretary” at Brigada Today! Maybe then… we won’t have to work with a staff of one! (Doug) </infoattealbrookdotcom>

  2. SO WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THAT “NEW TOOL”? — So Georgia wrote this past week from TN, “Whatever happened to that new tool you mentioned last January (see January 17th issue… “NEW TOOL HIGHLIGHTS COUNTRIES AND PEOPLES OF THE WORLD”)? As a matter of fact, she’s right!!! It was to come out in March… so it’s long overdue. We’ll see what we can find out. Thanks for your patience!

  3. MORE HELP FOR OVERSPAMMED USERS — Thanks to several who wrote to give us more options for unsolicited email. We’re gathering that this problem affects just about all Brigada Today users… and, in fact, all users of the Internet. One user wrote from Germany to say that http://www.spamgourmet.com offers great spam prevention. “You can have as many email addresses as you like and decide how many replies will be forwarded to your main address. I use it every time I have to insert my email address on the internet, it works, and it’s all free!” What’s more, you can apparently set the number of emails you want to receive via a certain address — and then it goes dead. Pretty cool. Thanks for the tip!

    Bill added, “My own recommendation for cleaning up email is Yahoo. I use Yahoo to fetch my email from my “real” email acccounts because it allows me to be machine-independent. All my email is stored at Yahoo, so I can begin my email work at work, do more at home, or in another city. This fetching ability is a paid-service, but the spam-catching feature is part of their free and fee service.

    “Basically, any time you receive a bit of unwanted email (spam) you click the “This is spam” button, which sends it to Yahoo for their study and review. They don’t just block the sender, since spammers frequently change their addresses. They study and categorize the nature of the message, sender, subjects, and so on, and begin blocking them – using your input and that of all other Yahoo users.

    “The result for me has been phenomenal – my spam has dropped to near- zero. And you can view all captured spam for possible reversal. I’ve never had to do that.” (Thanks Bill!)

    Finally, Jon wrote about the problem of spyware. “SPYBOT http://www.spybot.com can remove over hundreds of different spy programs that accumulate over the months on your hard drive and especially in your “cookies” folder. It describes each invader, and gives you the option of choosing the ones you want to smash and the ones that you want to allow to remain.” (Thanks Jon!)


  4. HELP FOR *NEW* MISSIONARY PARENTS — ‘Adventuring into Parenthood’ is still available on a donation basis from WEC Publications, Bulstrode, Gerrards Cross, SL9 8SZ, ENGLAND; <infoatukdotwec-intdotorg> . It is written as “a series of letters to an imaginary missionary couple who are expecting their first baby” (a rather specialized market). </infoatukdotwec-intdotorg>

  5. SUPPORT-RAISING THROUGH BOOK-SELLING — Good Books & Company is a new source of quality Christian books sold through direct sales and the in-home party plan method. They now offer qualified non profit organizations the opportunity to raise up to 34.5% of product sales in cash for use in short-term missions and other projects. Stateside groups sell books consistent with their mission at reasonable prices to earn cash. Investigate their web site http://www.GoodBooksandCompany.com . Then contact <patodomatcox-internetdotcom> or 870-918-9922 for details and a catalog. Fundraisers may benefit group or individual activities. </patodomatcox-internetdotcom>

  6. TEE MATERIALS FOR ESL SPEAKERS –The Distance Education Department of Christian Leaders’ Training College in Papua New Guinea has developed materials over the past 30 years for Leadership Training and Discipleship in simple English. As part of the missions vision of the PNG church, they are hoping to be a blessing to others around the world by sharing these resources with those who may be able to benefit from such materials in English (or they could be translated into other languages). If you would like to find out more contact Emmanuel at <ekaunaatcltcdotacdotpg>. </ekaunaatcltcdotacdotpg>

  7. CHRISTIAN FUTURES NETWORK IN JULY, SAN FRANCISCO — “Is your ministry ready for the future?” Perspectives’ developer Jay Gary is hosting a consultation after the World Future Society to examine current theory and ‘best practices’ in raising up leaders of vision, creativity and foresight, through formal and informal training. Slated for July 20-21 in San Francisco, Missiologist Dr. Todd Johnson will join the program, along with Dr. Richard Slaughter, the world’s leading “foresight” expert from Australia. To register call 719-636-2000, email <christianfuturesatwnrfdotorg> or go online, http://www.christianfutures.com . </christianfuturesatwnrfdotorg>

  8. TESOL TRAINING IN PHILIPPINES — Sign up soon to train as an English Language instructor. The course is taught July 21-August 22 in the Philippines and covers topics like Principles of language learning and different learning styles, Program design and evaluation, proficiency testing, Team teaching, Making a lesson interactive, and Evangelism through TESOL. If you need more information about the course or an application form, contact Melody <kzkukaatjmfdotorgdotph> or write QCCPO 1415, Quezon City 1154 Philippines. </kzkukaatjmfdotorgdotph>

  9. DISSERTATION ON CHRIST’S “SELF-EMPTYING” IS AVAILABLE — Dr. Daniel Harmelink is willing to share his Ph.D. missiology dissertation on the subject of Christian mission and the “self-emptying” of Christ in Philippians 2:7. He wrote, “The increasingly significant motif of “kenosis” was researched through a systematic investigation of mission literature and over 250 written surveys by mission administrators, professors and filed workers. The dissertation is the definitive work on the subject of how contemporary mission leaders understand and apply “kenosis”, with 57 charts, 54 “prescriptive theses”and an exhaustive bibliography of “kenois” in mission literature.” Please contact Rev. Dr. Daniel N. Harmelink <missioatearthlinkdotnet> for more details, availability and pricing. </missioatearthlinkdotnet>

    1. NEW SPONSOR: TEALBROOK — Need a piece of camping gear? Please give Tealbrook a try: http://www.tealbrook.com . They cater to the needs of missionaries living in wilderness situations, with water purfiers, packs, and tons of other supplies. Thanks to Tealbrook for their sponsorship for Brigada!

    1. ARE YOU RECEIVING TONS OF UNSOLICITED EMAILS? — Often referred to as “spam”, these advertisements and scams are on the rise. In fact, they’re deluging anybody and everbody that uses the Internet. Spammers (those who specialize in sending out thousands of unsolicited email ads on a daily basis) harvest your email address from websites, web-forums, or by buying address lists from other vendors. So if you put your email address on the form at your local hardware store, the next thing you know, you’re getting weekly email updates from a fix-it-yourself magazine… and a few weeks after that, from a pornographic website. It’s insane — and out of control. As for spam in the USA, congress is up in arms and committed to coming up with legislation to address it. Only God knows if they’ll be successful. Some studies show that spam now makes up 40% of the email most users receive. (It’s lots higher than that with me.) If you want to try to address spam on a smaller scale basis, try these options — courtesy “Dan the man” (our Information Technology guy at Team Expansion): For Outlook users: http://www.cloudmark.com markets Spamnet; about 95% effective. Only works with Full Outlook (not Express). http://www.Mailblocks.com – this is Dan’s favorite. 100% effective. a penny a day. However it uses IMAP rather than POP3 so it is tricky to use with some programs. Available for Outlook / Outlook Express / and Eudora, if you can configure it correctly. http://www.Mailshell.com. 10 cents a day, about 90% effective. For POP3 only clients. Some Internet Service Providers hook up their users to spam control for no extra charge. For example, Earthlink provides a form of Brightmail. I’ve been using Earthlink since 1995 and I’ll have to say, their spam control catches hundreds of spam messages to me per day… but dozens still get through. No solution is 100% effective. Rats. :-)

    1. DENTAL TRAINING FOR MISSIONARIES — Learn a practical skill with which you can demonstrate the love of Christ and open the hearts of unreached peoples to the gospel. Dental disease is the most common disease in the world. Millions suffer for lack of available or affordable dental services. In just 9 days, Dental Training For Missions can train and equip you to bring greatly needed dental care to your community. Let us not love in word only, but also in deed… I John 3:18 http://www.dentaltrainingformissions.com E-mail: <dentaltrainingformissionsatattdotnet>

    1. U.S. WEST COAST HOSPITALITY HOME Closes —

    1. CASE STUDY FOR POLAND — A web evangelism team in Poland is using an integrated portfolio of websites with some very effective strategies. This case study presents many ideas which could be adapted for other languages and countries: http://www.gospelcom.net/guide/resources/poland.php

    1. E-SWORD — Layman Rick Myers has developed an online *free* Bible download service of 40 translations in 14 languages including Chinese, Russian and Ukrainian. More than 800,000 Bibles have been downloaded since it launched in 2001. The King James Version is included with Strong’s reference numbers which key the text to dictionary references showing the underlying Hebrew and Greek words. It includes a built-in word processor to import text, add notes, highlight key passages and print. Again, all this is free. Mr. Myers lives off of donations. http://www.e-sword.net/ (ABP) Thanks for the tip, Mark!

    1. UNHINDERED 2003: AN EVENT FOR YOUNG PEOPLE IN MISSIONS — Unhindered 2003 is a special event coming up in Frisco, Colorado, with still barely enough time for you to learn more. If you are a young adult interested in world evangelization, pray about coming to Colorado on June 25-29 for a time of networking, sharing new ideas, and worshiping the Lord Jesus Christ. Floyd McClung, George Miley, and others will be sharing their hearts for the local church’s involvement in this great task before the body of Christ. For more info check out the website at http://www.unhindered2003.com or email at <infoatunhindered2003dotcom> .

    1.
