Morocco Summit ’08

Interested in reaching Morocco with the Gospel? Looking for tips on how to begin ministry there, what to do, or how to do it better? Arise Shine Morocco invites missionaries, interested individuals, mission agency and church representatives to meet together in the Seattle, Washington area for two days in September to learn from one another and to explore together what has been done in the past and what might be done in the future. Workers with decades in Morocco will share from their experiences and teach on reaching Muslims within the Moroccan context. Panel and group discussions will address specific issues and opportunities. The overall thrust will be to unify, inform, inspire, encourage, equip and empower participants for effective ministry in Morocco. Discounted early registration is available until August 1st. For more information or to register, go to: http://www.ariseshinemorocco.org/ Or write to:

Gas Prices Up, But Travel Medical Insurance: Not

Is there anything that is not increasing in price this year?? Yes, there is! The Day Tripper travel medical plan for group short-term missions is up 0% this year! In fact, some ages actually have LOWER rates this year! If you are in need of health insurance for your short-term mission teams this year be sure to check out this great plan. PLUS when you purchase this plan from Insurance Services of America on their web site (http://www.missionaryhealth.net/brigada.htm ) you will be helping to support Brigada!

In addition to this plan, coverage is available for any international need – short-term trips, career missionaries, trip cancellation, short-term teams and term life insurance.

For coverage details, rates and the online applications of the Brigada sponsored plans, go to http://www.missionaryhealth.net/brigada.htm . Insurance Services of America has agreed to help support Brigada from sales that are made on this link, so when you purchase on this site you will be helping to support Brigada and you will be protecting yourself and your ministry from financial loss!

Teaming with an interpreter: a Tutorial

This course is for anyone who wants to communicate clearly with people who do not speak English. Since it is about a team approach, interpreters will also find this course useful. All types of organizations will benefit, including businesses, professional services, non-profits, government entities and educational institutions. Highline Public Schools, near Burien, Washington provided support for development of this online tutorial in conjunction with professional interpreters.

Web Evangelism and Missions: Resources to Help your Ministry

With over 1 billion users in 2008, Web usage is projected to double within several years. These ‘second billion’ users will be almost entirely in the non-western world, in the 10/40 Window. There are also more than 3 billion mobile phones in use – i.e. over half the world’s population. There are more mobile users in Africa than USA!

The potential for outreach, using both the Web and mobile devices, is staggering. Yet many opportunities are not being taken, by either the mission world, national churches or the wider Christian community.

The Guide Network has therefore been set up, as a partnership between Internet Evangelism Day and the Web Evangelism Guide, GCIA, Internet Evangelism Coalition, visionSynergy, and Lausanne, to share resources and encourage networking for mobile and web evangelism, especially in non-English languages.
