2. WHAT TOOLS ARE AVAILABLE IN MY LANGUAGE?? –- Are you frustrated by the fact that you just can’t seem to find any Christian / Church Education materials in the language you speak or the language of the people you serve? Bible Visuals International has been printing picture-based Bible lessons for over 45 years. The teacher’s texts have been translated in over 85 languages and the lessons used in over 150 countries.

3. CHECK OUT THIS CHRISTIAN ENVIRONMENTAL ORGANIZATION — On environmental matters, check out A Rocha, a Christian conservation organisation now working in over a dozen countries. Try http://www.arocha.org for details. (Thanks Chris!)
4. BOTSWANA INVITES YOU TO AN AFRICAN RETREAT — Been overworking a bit lately? Burning the candle at both ends? Have a look at http://www.limpopo-lipadi.co.za for an excellent opportunity to acquire shares (at a bargain price of USD3.30 per hectare) in a 32000ha Game Reserve – with 6 luxury air-conditioned lodges – in Botswana. Churches, families or companies can buy a share together and rotate shareholder nominees on a yearly basis. Enjoy natural wilderness in this untouched, untamed, malaria-free part of Africa (about 450km northwest of Johannesburg, South Africa). Since it is 100km from the nearest town and has its own conference facilities it makes for a wonderful retreat venue, church group break-away, or missionary resting place. For more information click http://www.limpopo-lipadi.co.za/faq.asp or email jacques(at)limpopo-lipadi(dot)co(dot)za and ask Jacques any questions about the Reserve.

5. NATIONAL SHORT TERM MISSION CONFERENCE JANUARY 20-22,2006 — This is the 17th annual conference to train, equip and mobilize teams for short-term mission. Paul Borthwick is the featured speaker and along with 15 other short term mission experts will provide insight and encouragement. The conference will be held in Los Angeles, CA. Catch 3 in depth pre-conference options starting on January 19th. Check out the website at http://www.nstmc.org for complete registration information or contact us at info(at)nstmc(dot)org [As a means of preventing spam for our contributors, in the preceding email address(es), please replace (at) with @ and (dot) with .] Registration discounts are available for early registrations, groups, spouses and colleges.
6. HOUSEHOLD CHURCHES — There is a movement for the development of house churches in the west based upon the concept of “reproducibility”. The aim is to encourage relationally based experiences of the body of Christ without the infrastructure, hierarchy and complexity of traditional church organizations. In more hierarchical and segregated societies, such as Islamic societies, this is being translated into what may be termed “household churches”. That is, the members of the church are limited to members of a particular family. Although there is much that has been written about house churches in western societies, Mark would like to find information and examples of such “household churches” that have come into existence in other parts of the world. If our readers could provide any information about “household churches,” Mark would be grateful. email: mark(dot)naylor(at)twu(dot)ca [As a means of preventing spam for our contributors, in the preceding email address(es), please replace (at) with @ and (dot) with .]
7. SEE A MODEL EFFORT FOR MISSION & THE ENVIRONMENT — “Care of Creation”, a non-profit whose first project is in Kenya in partnership with the International Mission Board, SBC entity. Web: http://www.careofcreation.org/home.cfm In Kenya, the person who is heading up that project is an MK named Craig. His hope is to empower believers and churches to have a positive impact on the environment and to use the project as a springboard for reaching some unreached people groups with the gospel. Check it out and see if you can replicate his efforts.
8. SCRIPTURE PROMOTION AND RESOURCE KNOWLEDGE: SPARK! — Check out this new website from Vernacular Media Services, a division of Wycliffe Bible Translators. Drill to this introduction to the Storying Scarf and hit the links to see how it works on four levels — products, training, case studies, and search. SPARK is an acronym for Scripture Promotion and Resource Knowledge. They’ve provide us all with a great site, whether it’s Scripture-specific or applying media within a cross- cultural missions context. http://spark.vernacularmedia.org/products/info/159
9. USE GOOGLEMAIL FOR YOUR BACKUP — Still looking for a great way to archive those official documents? Try Larry’s idea. He scanned essentials to a JPEG file and emailed the whole thing to a googlemail address and let them store it for him. Create any address you can remember — doesn’t have to be yourname(at)gmail(.)com, and email the JPEG to yourself, with subject line of say “Uncle Joe’s birthday party”, to bore to death any hacker who got this far. Leave the mail stored there with the attachment. Scan and email a copy of your ticket before you leave on an out of country trip. Lose a passport overseas? (not fun!) At the embassy explain the process and help them download a color scan of the original, with matching photo. Sort of self authenticates, since they can also match their file copy. Thanks Mark! Great idea. (By the way, Mark did not scan the SS card. He rightfully figured there was too much risk with just that number.)
10. REACHING MIDDLE CLASS THAIS — Cornerstone Workplace English is an innovative work which is reaching Middle Class Thais in the Workplace. CWE is based in Chiang Mai, North Thailand, but has the aim to grow further afield. You can view the website on http://www.cornerstone.co.th/cwe The company is looking for properly trained, experienced ESL teachers. Contact the manager on ilkkamaree(at)csloxinfo(dot)com [As a means of preventing spam for our contributors, in the preceding email address(es), please replace (at) with @ and (dot) with .]
11. PARTNERS ROCK! — Thanks to those who chip in to grow Brigada into the future. Want to help? Just click on “sponsor” in the top menu (to use PayPal or a credit card), or just send a check payable to Team Expansion to: Team Expansion (Brigada secretary), 13711 Willow Reed Dr., Louisville, KY 40299. As always, be sure to let us know if you’d like us to promote any particular service or ministry, or if you’d prefer your gift be anonymous.
12. THE BACKPAGE: THE IMPORTANCE OF SAYING THANKS — Here’s a quick thought for those who live on mission support: Let’s remember to say thanks. Regardless of the size of the gift, our donors are often making sacrifices to send us out. Let’s remember to say thanks. It’s not exactly rocket science. Write or type a note on the receipt, scratch out an email, send a thank-you note, make a phone call, or even visit them personally. Either way, let’s invest as much time and effort being grateful as we invest making requests. Long-term, we’ll be glad we did. That’s all I’ve got to say about that. :-) Doug

http://brigada.org/followership/
where they’ve taken a 5-minute survey that will hopefully allow Doug to finish his dissertation. Trouble is, he needs about 300 more people… 500 in all. One reader wrote this past week, ” Hi, Doug! Can you use my Filipino staff for your dissertation? Most of them are professionals, they raise some of their own support & we are definitely an evangelical mission organization!” The answer? Most definitely. If you’d like to help… or if you know someone (or 300 someones) who can, send them to:

3. WELCOME, BRACKENHURST CENTER FOR THE CARE OF CREATION — Reader Ed Brown reports that he and colleagues in Kenya have just formed this new organization to pursue ‘a God-centered response to environmental crises that brings glory to the Creator.’ The US base is in Madison, WI, and the organization has one project running in Kenya. Ed and colleagues hope to be a resource to fellow mission organizations while mobilizing the church toward a meaningful and effective, God glorifying response to environmental challenges. Resources for other ministries will eventually include seminars on such topics as appropriate responses to environmental problems, and using environmental outreach as entry strategies in limited access areas. Consultations are available now. Ed would love to hear from you!

13. THE BACK PAGE: WHICH IS IT — A “SIGN” OR A “SINKHOLE” — The mission with which I work, Team Expansion, has recently acquired 61 acres where we hope to build a prayer, retreat, and training center for missionaries and those who send them. In a couple of basins on the property, we have sinkholes. Think of these babies as ‘caves in formation.’ They may be interesting geologically… but they’re kind of a hassle practically. Our volunteers can be walking along through a patch of high weeds and suddenly just vanish. It’s definitely a negative motivator for recruiting new volunteers. (OK… I’m exaggerating just a bit… but only a bit.)

How are we supposed to view these sinkholes? Does it mean God didn’t intend for us to purchase this property? Unlikely… By God’s grace, the project went from start to finish — all 61 acres — 100% paid for in less than 16 months, all by means of a unique strategy that didn’t even require a capital funding campaign. (That’s the subject of another “Back Page”. :-) ) So it’s obvious to us that God has been “in it.” Besides… there are only 2 relatively small areas where they occur… and we’ve already started mitigating both areas with input from a geologist from the US Dept. of Natural Resources (using special forms of French drains). In short, we’re kind of glad they’re there. As I say — they’re kind of an interesting feature. (I say that even as we work to eliminate or lessen their impact on the basin where they occur. :-) )

So if they’re not a “sign” to turn back, what are they then? I look at them like a track runner looks at hurdles. They’re just something else we have to jump over (kind of literally! :-) ).

Sometimes it’s helpful to remember these sinkholes as we tackle other more “spiritual” projects. Having trouble entering a new country? Somebody at the conference table inevitably says, “I guess it just wasn’t meant to be.” Maybe. Maybe not. You see, what I’m trying to say is … I don’t believe each and every apparent difficulty is put there as a spiritual signpost to tell us to turn back.

So if you can’t buy the first storefront for your new church facility, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re not supposed to buy a storefront. It just might mean you can’t by *that* one. Take Paul for instance. He certainly didn’t stop his missionary journeys when he ran into just any ole adversity. He was shipwrecked, stoned, and even nearly killed — but still felt the power of the Lord urging him forward. (II Cor. 11:23-27, 12:10) When Peter and John encountered arrests and other roadblocks, they actually took them as a kind of ‘dare’, praying to God for all the more boldness (Acts 4:29). Any more, I kind of *savor* the chance to “smile into the face of stress”. By that I mean… when I begin to become aware that stress is building in my life, I break out in this telltale confident grin. In fact, sometimes I think — we must *reeeally* be on to something now, if we’re encountering this kind of challenge. (Satan isn’t going to give up these territories without a fight, you know.)

So — signs or sinkholes — you decide (but only with a lot of prayer). In the meantime, smile into the face of stress. You’ll be glad you did… because it’s a jungle out there. :-) Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go search for those volunteers. I know they’re here somewhere. :-)

  1. WHAT DO THESE THREE PEOPLE HAVE IN COMMON? — What does a Lakota/Sioux rodeo cowgirl, a doctoral student in Poland, and a ship director in Fiji have in common? All three are part of the 130 leaders, from 13 nations enrolled in the International School of Reconciliation Studies, a web-based, self-paced nine month school for leaders, associated with John Dawson’s International Reconciliation Coalition. Comprised of a world class faculty of scholars and storytellers, this school is designed to multiply creative, Biblically anchored, multi- cultural reconcilers throughout the world. Live in a nation without reliable internet access? The school is now available on compact disc. Applications are being accepted now for the next class which begins April 15.

Would you consider sponsoring too? If so, click to: http://www.brigada.org/donate.html

  2. THANKS TO THOSE TRYING IKOBO — Thanks, too, to the two volunteers trying out iKobo, the Western Union-like cash transfer organization. It will hopefully help them transfer cash sums across time zones and national barriers.
  3. Try them… and help Brigada… at:
    https://www.ikobo.com/ref.cgi?r=LD017707US


  4. CLICK TO LEARN ABOUT CHRONOLOGICAL BIBLE STORYING — Admit it. It’s the craze now. If you don’t learn it, you won’t be able to “keep up” with the latest talks at big gatherings. Learn more at: http://newwway.org/articles/10steps.htm (And … thanks for access to the info., Mark!)

  5. ENVIRONMENTAL COURSES DESIGNED FOR MISSIONARIES — Au Sable Institute of Environmental Studies under Cal DeWitt started the Christian Environmental Stewardship movement and now has a network of 59 participating Christian colleges throughout North America. They are offering courses for agricultural and development workers such as ‘Tropical Agriculture and Missions’, ‘Ecological Agriculture’ and ‘Global Development and Sustainability’. Courses are offered in May (5/14-6/3); and in two summer terms(6/5-7/9 & 7/17-8/16). You can take them at three North American sites (Michigan, Washington, Florida) and two overseas locations (India & Kenya), and you can get credit through any of the 59 participating colleges. See http:www.ausable.org or call 1-800-315-2836 (North America) or +1-231-587-8686 or write to missioncoursesatausabledotorg

  6. YOUR VIEW OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL CRISIS IN YOUR AREA — There are a lot of hints that environmental problems (degradation of agricultural land, changes in rainfall patterns) are much more severe than, say, 15 years ago. Is this your experience? Ed Brown, COO at Au Sable Institute, would like to get a feel for this problem from the ‘front lines’. If you have been working or have lived in a developing country long enough to observe such changes (or the lack thereof!), would you drop Ed a line at ebrown53717ataoldotcom Responses will be useful in helping Au Sable create appropriate courses and training materials for missionaries and development workers in environmentally degraded areas. (In a couple of weeks, we’ll look forward to a summary from Ed.)

  7. CHRISTIANS IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE TEACHING CONFERENCE — On March 30, 2004, 8:00 am – 6:00 pm, in Long Beach, CA, USA plan to attend the first conference to bring together Christians who teach ESL/EFL from many agencies, training institutions, and schools.

Topics include English camps, materials, ESL in seminaries, church- based ESL, teaching internationally, culture & Christianity, non-native speakers, mentoring volunteers, curriculum design, agency standards, and much more. The cost is $15 before 2/27, $20 before 3/20, and $25 on site. For a registration packet, please e-mail kittydotpurgasonatbioladotedu.

  8. LEARN TO TEACH ENGLISH: TESOL TRAINING — Teaching English is a wonderful “tentmaking” tool. This four week training course will enhance your teaching skills, which will enhance your ministry. Your TESOL certificate will open many doors of opportunity. Next class begins March 7, 2004. See website at http://www.ywampa.org for details, or contact YWAM Lebanon, Pennsylvania, USA at ywampaatcomcastdotnet.

  9. LEARN ABOUT THE HERERO PEOPLE — A missionary and translator approached an 80 year old man in a village. During the introductions they discovered that the man is an uncle to the translator. The man shared that as he grew older and learned more about God he could clearly see his need for Jesus. He was overjoyed that they were there to tell him about Jesus. Pray for the Lord to use born again Hereros to reach their extensive families. 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, visit http://www.forgottenpeoples.info or email swacscatiafricadotcom.

  10. UNENGAGED PEOPLES OF NAMIBIA AND SOUTH AFRICA — There are several people groups, like the Herero, Nama/Damara and Mbalantu, who have little to no evangelical witness. As they face the struggles of life and the ravages of AIDS, who will tell them about Jesus? Who will pray for them? Who will care? Pray for the Lord to build prayer support for these unengaged peoples. To adopt a people group for prayer or for more information, visit http://www.forgottenpeoples.info or email swacscatiafricadotcom.

  11. LEARN CONVERSATIONAL ENGLISH — Do you know someone who wants to improve in English?
