2) How to Find the Bible in Over 1500 Languages.

If there is a Refugee, International student or a immigrant in your life, and you would like to help them find the Bible. Check out


You can search by country or language — and find 1500 language resources. Seriously. A woman teaches a Bible study to a group of Kareni women, before they read it in English she goes to ScriptureEarth and plays it in their language. It really helps them understand what they are learning in English and the Scriptures.

6) POLAND Ajmera Haven Retreat 2017

Azmera’s mission is to Impact Women Who are Impacting the World. If you are an English speaking, Kingdom-minded women (worker or expat) from any nation, serving overseas, Azmera would like to invite you to a nurturing, restful, transformational haven retreat in Krakow, Poland, Oct 21 – 24. The cool thing is that they help make it affordable for workers by raising Haven Scholarships. Check out Azmera and register at


7) Scripture Prayers for Unreached Peoples (Eng., Russian, Ukrainian)

Praying Scripture is praying God’s way. Unlike many prayer resources with demographic data or prayer points, this 24-page full-color booklet allows you to insert a people group’s name into scripted prayers oriented in the Biblical text. Visit


for FREE downloadable PDFs in English, Russian, and Ukrainian. Order printed copies in English with up to 50% off on bulk orders. Declare and pray God’s truth over peoples living in falsehood.

8) Hear How Churches and Individuals are Shifting Resources

Jon Hirst, outgoing President and CEO of GMI, has participated in a really cool Christianity Today article about GMI’s closure — and how churches and individuals are redirecting some of their support from service ministries to field destinations. What’s your thought about this shift? Please jot your opinion in “Comment” box immediately following the web version of this item. Thanks! (And thanks to those who made the site possible!)


11) Hats off to the Folks at 4KWorldMap.com

We recently asked for help from the folks at the 4K Mapping Team. We were putting together a teaching exhibit for churches and convention delegates to learn more about the unreached. We were, in a word, THRILLED, by the results. They were easy to work with, quick and efficient to deliver, and spot-on with what we needed. What’s more, it’s really obvious that they love the unreached. We’re grateful to the 4K Mapping Team for their commitment to Christ and the Great Commission. God bless you guys! Also, they’ve inherited part of GMI’s legacy of research and information, so be sure to stop at their site after Aug. 15th to see that collection. Learn more at…


12) Still Amazed by Clipmate

We’ve been using this little utility for a decade. It helps you copy and paste like a Pro AND it’s extremely affordable too (the best $34.95 you’ll ever spend). It essentially gives you an unending clipboard — along with protected folders of clipped items you want to save. Use it also to “clean up” clipped items (e.g., remove unwanted carriage returns or stray formatting characters added by word processors like Word). You can even stitch together multiple clipboard items and a whole lot more. Learn more at…


Highly recommended.

14) The Last Bit: Have You Checked out Google’s Products Lately?

Whoa — they’ve expanded. See the whole line-up at…


Of course, keep in mind that many of these products are trolled for information that will help them advertise more proactively toward you (and those you list in the apps themselves). So maybe be just a *tad* careful if some of your friends work in sensitive places. But the range of offerings is amazing. Just remember that you (the end user) are not really the end-user. The advertisers are the clients whose hearts they want to win. : )
