1) Joshua Project Introduces “Wall of the Unreached”

The Wall of Unreached Peoples

Check out their page about the Wall of Unreached Peoples…

http://www.joshuaproject.net/unreached-wall.php

This giant Wall resembles the Vietnam Memorial on the mall in Washington, DC, but instead of remembering the fallen, it reminds us of those outside the reach of the gospel. So for a love offering of $150 (and the cost of shipping the exhibit on to the next location), you can stage a $6000 traveling exhibit at your church, college, or event. Check it out today.

3) Where Does One Buy Signage/Displays

Wes is looking for the best value on printed graphic banners for tabletop displays. He had previously ordered 30 at less than $30 each from a vendor called Designs2go. However, recently the price has more than doubled to $65 each. If you had to try to beat that price and find a great quality vendor, where would you go? If possible, jot down your favorite option by clicking “Comment” below.

  • SPONSORS PAVE THE WAY FOR A NEW YEAR — Thanks to the sponsors that have paved the way into the new Brigada year! The anonymous sponsor that gives $10/month regularly, using the new “Subscribe” feature that he asked for, was back at it again this past week. (Thanks!) Thanks, too, to Info. & Learning Systems Int’l, producers of the “Countries & Peoples of the World” CD, who sent $461.25 more to express their appreciation for Brigada readers who have purchased the product. Yahooo! :-) And hats off to the anonymous couple in N. IN ($50!), the Irving Bible Church (also $50), the anonymous couple with Young Life Europe ($100)!!! We appreciate your help! Please consider joining these and others sponsors at: http://www.brigada.org/donate.html You’ll see one button for “Donate” (any amount, one-time), and another for “Subscribe” ($10/mo). These great sponsors help us get Brigada out the door and to your screen each weekend! (If you help the new Brigada Secretary, then she’ll help keep me on time. :-) Also, please remember, once we make our goal for the year [$16,021], we will no longer ask for sponsors.)

  • OPTIONS FOR SIMPLE MISSIONS DISPLAYS — Remember Mark, the guy that wanted to track down some options for creating simple missions displays? Well guess what: he followed through! To view his full report, click here. (Thanks Mark!)

  • RETREATS FOR PROSPECTIVE MISSIONARIES — “The Journey Deepens” is a weekend retreat to help prospects explore, discover and connect with how they could become a missionary in another culture. These weekends are for college students, professionals, and high school seniors who are willing to become a missionary but not sure if that is God’s will or how that could unfold. Each retreat of 100 participants and 10 experienced missionaries from multiple agencies is highly relationship with extended worship, small group discussions, personal reflection and much prayer. Discussions include the missionary call, support-raising, singles/families, etc. The next retreat will be April 2-4, 2004 in Davis, Oklahoma (between Dallas and Oklahoma City). The Journey Deepens is presented by MissionsFocus Int’l and co-sponsored by ACMC, Caleb Project, Perspectives and the U.S. Center for World Mission. Browse http://www.TheJourneyDeepens.com or email missionsfocusataskamissionarydotcom or phone 1-800-366-6641.

  • RESULTS OF THEIR DEMISE GREATLY EXAGERATED — It turns out that Interdev might not totally disappear after all. I heard this past week from a former Interdev Central Asia Team member that maybe she wouldn’t end up being a “former”! :-) She wrote, “The ministry will carry on, even though some formal office spaces have closed in USA, UK, and India. We still have offices—they’re just … in our homes, garages, or church corners. … The functions needed by Interdev Partnership Associates will inform the structure, and we will begin as a decentralized group, committed by covenant with one another, founded on our relationships, connected through a facilitation team! Rather than one central INTERDEV organization, INTERDEV Partnership Associates connects 16 Partnership Advisors, basing from 10 organizations, dispersed regionally across India, Indonesia, Africa, Philippines, USA, Canada, and UK!” Sounds great! Bravo to those forging on!

  • WHO ENCOURAGES MISSIONARIES? — Here’s a Brigada reader desperate to learn more about organizations and missions that minister and encourage missionaries around the world and in their home country. Would you write Felicia feliciabucatearthlinkdotnet with information on the group, what they do and offer, how long they have been ministering and any links that would prove helpful? She wrote, “Many churches and individuals are interested in ‘ministering to the ministers’, so they’d like to know who is already doing it and how well they are doing it. Individual organizations and groups within missions or any other ideas are welcome.”

  • MASTERS DEGREE IN PHILIPPINES — Azusa Pacific University offers a Masters in Social Science (with an emphasis in Servant Leadership) in the Philippines! The cost is 1/3 of on-campus prices. Fly to the Philippines and pay less for your flight and your courses than you would pay on campus for the same courses! 4 courses are taught each summer (June). For more information contact Melody kzkukaatjmfdotorgdotph, Box 1415 QCCPO, Quezon City, 1154, Philippines. 632-658-3807

  • FLY IN THE MICROSOFT MISSIONARY-LICENSING OINTMENT? — A recent Brigada item recommended purchasing licenses for Microsoft software through http://www.1computerbargains.com They are one source for the open charity licenses from Microsoft. A contact from one mission agency, however, has stated that their licenses can be used in the home office but not by their missionaries serving around the world. (They cited a Microsoft policy says that a license cannot be used by affiliates outside of North American. See http://www.microsoft.com/licensing/programs/open/opencharity_faq.asp ) The same mission would love to know if Microsoft has indicated that missionaries working out from a USA office may use these licenses in spite of the policy wording. If you have info. on this, write Lester semdeanataiiasdotedu and he’ll report back to us in 2 weeks. (Thanks Lester!)

  • A RESOURCE FOR MENTORING — Most leaders want to mentor others but often don’t know where to begin. “Mentoring thru Intentional Relationships,” by Phillip Jeske, is a model that is designed to help someone intentionally mentor others. This 12 chapter, 250-page manual (printed or as PDF) is not only has an introduction to mentoring but also a tool with which to walk through key personal and leadership issues with someone else. Partnerships are also possible to translate the materials into other languages (currently English & German). For more info check out http://www.icmeurope.org/mentor.html or contact International Christian Ministries ICMcanadaatcsdotcom

  • VANCOUVER MISSIONS CONFERENCE — Catch it Jan 30 – Feb 1, 2004, in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Hundreds of agencies and tens of thousands of participants take part in the weekend. For more info check out http://www.mfest.bc.ca

  • CLOSEUP ON THE UNREACHED: THE NAMA/DAMARA PEOPLE — These unreached people can be found in central and southern Namibia in Africa. Among them is a young Nama mother who welcomed a presentation of the Gospel. She indicated a desire to have a personal relationship with Jesus. However, while surrounded by older Nama ladies who were unwilling to pray to receive Christ, she put off the decision. As she held her baby she explained that she is an unwed mother living with the father. In her mind she needs to “clean up” her life before accepting Christ. Pray for the Lord to build prayer support for the Nama/Damara, an unengaged people group. To adopt the Nama/Damara people for prayer or for more information, please visit http://www.forgottenpeoples.info or email swacscatiafricadotcom

  • TESOL TRAINING IN THE PHILIPPINES — If you feel the Lord calling you into missions and would like to use TESOL as a tool, check out these two intensive classes of five weeks each this spring. April 19- May 21 is in Manila, and April 12 to May 14 is in Davao with a practicum to an unreached people group. For more information and applications contact Melody at kzkukaatjmfdotorgdotph or Box 1415 Quezon City 1154, Philippines, tel. 632-658-3807.

  • CLOSEUP ON THE UNREACHED: THE HERERO PEOPLE — Among this African group (in central and eastern Namibia) is a 50-year-old man who has lived in the small village of Okatjoruu, Namibia all his life was open to hearing the Gospel. He follows the tribal religion of the Herero in ancestor worship. When asked about going to heaven when he dies, he said that the “ancestors will keep” him. He resisted accepting Christ. He said that he was too old to change and preferred to go the same way as his ancestors in death – wherever that is. Pray for the Lord to build prayer support for the Herero, an unengaged people group. To adopt the Herero people for prayer or for more information, please visit http://www.forgottenpeoples.info or email swacscatiafricadotcom

  • MISSION INTERNSHIPS AVAILABLE — Mission to Unreached Peoples is looking for kingdom-minded people aged 18-30 who are interested in experiencing life on the mission field while being supervised by a long-term missionary. Placements are available in Eastern Europe and Asia, and last 3-9 months. Check out http://www.mup.org or email Pete PeteEatgatiwadotcom, or call(888) 895-4657 or (509) 483-4792

  • NEW DISCIPLESHIP GUIDE — Winkie Pratney & Trevor Yaxley have teamed up their years of experience in evangelism and discipleship to produce “Ultimate Core”, an in-depth approach to discipleship designed for teens and twenty-somethings who want to experience and radiate the core of heart commitment to Christ. Covering topics from purity to spiritual gifts and evangelism, this is a great life manual for missions training centers. You’ll find more information and an excerpt at http://www.bethanyhouse.com To order, write ordersatbakerbooksdotcom or call 1-800-877-2665 or dial (616) 676-9185.

  • SHARPENING YOUR INTERPERSONAL SKILLS (SYIS) — Catch this workshop in Toronto, March 22-26, 2004. It’s designed especially for missionaries and those in the local church who relate to missionaries on Home Assignments. This interactive workshop will increase your knowledge, attitudes and skills in relating to others. A 216-page work book is provided covering such topics as: Loving Listening; Confronting effectively, Building Trust; Helping others Grieve Well; Managing Stress and much more. For more information contact Robert at missionprepatsympaticodotca

  • ARE YOU CATCHING THE INTEREST IN ORALITY? — It’s swelling. For example, in about a week or so, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary In Fort Worth, TX, will host the “2004 Consultation on Orality, Literacy & the Oral Bible.” It’s very significant here that this conference is being co-sponsored, so to speak, by Wycliffe, Campus Crusade, YWAM, and the Int’l Mission Board. (In sheer numbers, those 4 organizations probably represent the geocenter of evangelical mission outreach.) As I interviewed personnel from the Jesus Film and Wycliffe this past week, I couldn’t help but take note of the fact that interest in the Oral Bible is at an all-time high. See this page… http://www.oralbible.com/ for more information. The idea is that many of the world’s remaining unreached peoples value *oral* tradition, as much or more than written. As a result, these organizations (and now a dozen others, as well) are setting bold goals to produce and utilize recorded *stories*. (They’re using the IMB’s term: “Chronological Bible Storying.”) Watch this trend… and the growing interest in addressing it. For example, the 4- way partnership above has now embraced a common strategy and sending approach, as can be seen at http://www.bibleless.org/involved/epic.html

  • THE BACKPAGE: LAUSANNE III? — Will it become Lausanne III? Only time will tell. You’ll probably recall the now-famous missions conference held in Lausanne, Switzerland in 1974. There, Ralph Winter announced his outlandish suspicion that there were *thousands* of groups of people “hidden” from the gospel. Out of that consultation came a movement of people that later came to bear the name of the consultation’s venue: The Lausanne Movement for World Evangelization. I was just a junior in high school, so I didn’t make that one. But I definitely enjoyed Lausanne II in Manila, in 1989. At that conference, Ed Dayton made sure every participant understood our changing world, the complexities of reaching out to urban masses, and the hazards of modernity. Now I’m wondering how this fall’s conference in Thailand will shape up. Billed not as “Lausanne III”, but rather as 30 smaller conferences running simultaneously, I’m curious about how things will play out. See http://www.gospelcom.net/lcwe/chartdia.htm for a timeline chart of the “big picture” of Lausanne’s various meetings. See http://www.gospelcom.net/lcwe/2004/issues.htm for a breakdown of the 30 issues. And http://www.gospelcom.net/lcwe/2004/brochure.pdf is a summary brochure. On behalf of Brigada, I’m supposed to participate in Issue #6, “Those who have never heard the name of Jesus.” Would you begin praying today for this conference, slated for Sept. 29 – Oct. 5, 2004 (in Thailand)? Let’s ask God to act in this way:
    *** To reawaken His global forces to bold new steps for those who remain untold
    *** To speak in a resounding way through veteran leaders, so that younger generation leaders will gain a clearer sense of purpose
    *** To stoke the fires of passion for today’s churches and agencies, so the fire of world evangelism won’t die down until we completely finish the task of world evangelism! Thanks!!! Doug

  1. COMPLETELY FLOORED BY YOUR GENEROSITY — I want to be perfectly honest: I am completely humbled… even *floored* by your generosity, compassion and love! This past week brought us *significantly* closer to our goal of paying for a Brigada Secretary — to help us stay “up to date” and “in the air” for the long haul, churning out resources and mobilization ideas in Brigada Today. One anonymous donor gave [drum roll please] $5000. (That’s five *thousand* dollars.) He had nothing to sell, declined to feature his own work, and even declined a receipt for a tax deduction! I *will* tell you that he is indeed involved in Christian outreach, but his mission work takes place in a sensitive land. Perhaps you can identify… he wanted to help, but didn’t do it for any personal reward. It was totally an unselfish act, to try to help us get the word out regularly. He wrote, “Thank you for your faithfulness in serving the missions community through Brigada. … I have sent a $5,000.00 contribution toward your secretary. I clearly remember the days when I wished I had one and didn’t have the resources. Please keep this anonymous. Our mission is much better performed when only God knows who we are. You have been faithful to God and God is always faithful to you. We are simply thankful to bring this cup of cool water to your door.” Whoa. That’s quite a swig! :-) I’ll admit, when I first read the note, I figured it was one of those Internet scams. Then seconds later, I saw the PayPal notice that $5000 had been deposited in our PayPal account. Suddenly, weekly Brigada Todays started passing through my mind, … all the way back to January of 1995. Suddenly I realized there really *are* some people out there reading this stuff, and maybe some who are actually *using* it.

  3. OTHER SPONSORS THIS PAST WEEK — John Walton writes, “Here’s $25 with thanks to the 5 Brigada readers who bought a copy of The Toolbox for Video Storytelling during the month of October. John keeps his word. Don’t forget, if you need a good book on producing videos for your church or mission — John is making good on his promise to donate $5 for each copy sold. Learn more at: http://www.VillageAve.com/Brigada Thanks, too, to our new friends at Wilcannia, NSW, Australia, who minister to Australian Aborigines. We appreciate their sponsorship of $25! They have seen in the last 6 years 39% of their town turn to Christ. Learn more at http://www.wilcanniariveroflife.com Thanks to these new Brigada sponsors!

  4. BLESSED HOPE LONG DISTANCE GIVES *MONTHLY* HOPE — Now you can help create a *monthly* income for the Brigada secretary and save money at the same time! Through a partnership with Blessed Hope Long Distance, Brigada will begin earning a significant commission each and every month on all the long distance bills of those who subscribe to long distance service through this link: http://www.lowermyphonebill.com/brigada 200 new customers would provide about $200 extra dollars each and every month. 1000 customers might just about pay for the secretary! This is a great domestic plan and the state-to-state rate (in the contiguous U.S.) is 4.9 cents/minute with 6-second billing, NO fees and NO minimums. You can find your instate rate and international rates at the website. Blessed Hope is a Christian-owned company so you’ll also know your dollars are not going to fund what some feel are ungodly and anti- family causes of larger secular long distance providers. Our agents for this program, Neil & Darla Sautter, are the missions-minded parents of five who are building their Blessed Hope business as a way of becoming self-supporting so they themselves can return to overseas ministry in the future. Neil would like to be a TESOL teacher in China, Japan or Spain, should the Lord so lead. (Thanks Blessed Hope!)

  5. NATIONAL MISSIONARY TRAINING FORUM — Here’s a course that… I’ll have to admit… looks *great*. “Outstanding Practices in Mission Training” is the theme for the Forum from January 15-17, 2004, in Richmond, VA , at the IMB’s Missionary Learning Center. NMTF is a gathering of mission trainers from agencies, church, and schools (over 140 people from 60 organizations attended in 2003). There will be 14 workshops profiling “outstanding practices.” Participants will interact with practitioners, learning together how to make mission training more effective. There are three “pre-Forum” sessions so that trainers can get training, including: Church Planting Movements (Training for Trainers), Leadership Encounter with Jesus, and Situational Leadership II. To learn more as well as register, go to: http://www.icelonline.com/NMTF2004.html

  6. CONTACTING MISSIONARIES — Do you want to find missionaries for missions promotion only to be blocked by missions agencies concerned about security? PeopleTeams.org has 576 teams of missionaries online. In fact, PeopleTeams.org boasts of having every missionary team Web site in the world. These are not individual missionary family Webs, but instead, you’ll find online the way that missionaries *prefer* to be contacted. That way you can dialog with the personnel who are working in some very difficult places, not just the easy-to-reach field personnel. PeopleTeams.org is a mixture of many different agencies, too. Individual Web sites are frequently a coalition of many cooperating missions groups that pool their efforts to present the material you see online. You can send emails or letters to teams who will be happy to see that you receive a reply in a timely manner.

  7. RETHINKING BIBLICAL WITNESS AMONG HINDUS — From January 2-4, 2004, the Rethinking Forum is sponsoring a conference on the Hindu-Christian interface from the perspective of the Rethinking Movement in Indian church history. Friday will focus on the work and witness of individuals past and present while Saturday will be a seminar on practical perspectives and concerns in ministry. The Chicago area conference will close by lunch on Sunday following a worship service. For more information contact Jamie infoatrethinkingforumdotcom

  8. FINISHERS CANADA FORUM — The first forum of Finishers Canada is being held Saturday November 22nd at Tyndale College in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Speakers include Nelson Annan, Dave Toycen and Dave Mannings. Participants may choose between 5 seminars during the day. Further information, costs and registration information are available from finishersatiatwdotca (or 519-763-6147). They’re also working on a website at http://wwwfinisherscanada.ca though at press time it still returned a “The page cannot be displayed” error.

  9. FOLDING DISPLAYS? — I’m in the thick of trying to purchase a folding display. I must confess, I sometimes go through phases where I ask myself, where did we ever come up with this display thing, anyway? I mean… on the one hand, it seems like few church members actually really *look* at these things up close. Yet a decently designed portable “lit” display seems inevitably to cost hundreds of dollars. Either way, it seems like part of the “missions fair” culture is to ask us to all come with “nimlocks-in-hand”. Yikes. I’ve scouted some sites, but if you have some good ones … or if you know of the “best price” for a Skyline or a “ShowStyle” or whatever, Mark mark_simpson53athotmaildotcom is willing to take down the URL then assemble a report for us. (Thanks Mark! We appreciate your help. And to those with suggested sources, no need to copy me. Mark will compile the list. Thanks again!)

  10. GLOBALMISSIOLOGY.NET — After years of planning & preparation, www.globalmissiology.net – a new quarterly electronic journal is now being launched. The organizers there would like us to spread the word, especially to those who can’t afford subscribing to traditional missiological journal but have internet access.

Groups such as New Tribes Missions, Red Sea Team International, Frontiers, YWAM, Operation Mobilization, Calvary International, Wycliffe, the US Center for World Missions and many more will be represented for this “10/40-focused” event. The goal is to get the word out about the needs in the 10/40 Window and to provide a place for those working there to meet and share their experiences. There will be speakers, workshops, booths, and time just to fellowship with those who share a similar heart. The conference will be held in Talladega, Alabama.
