8) Al Massira: (The Journey) English To Spanish Translators Needed

Al Massira is a series of 40 min videos, 13 in number, that tell the gospel story in a Middle Eastern/Mediterranean context, mostly through the eyes of selected Old Testament prophets, as recognized by the Muslim world. These include, Adam, Noah, Abraham, David, Mary, John the Baptist, Christ, Peter and Paul. The videos contain Biblical stories & exposition, roundtable discussions, man on the street interviews, personal testimonies, etc. The idea is to present our beliefs in a friendly, informal atmosphere, where questioning is invited in a non-judgmental manner. To date, all subtitles have been translated into Spanish. Now they need additional hands to translate the Notes, Questions, Leader’s Guide and Other Resource material. Those interested in lending a hand can contact
AlMassiraSpainatgmaildotcom for details.

5) Amused by adverts saying, “Learn Spanish in Seconds”?

Spanish / English classObservation clearly indicates that very few Spanish learners who’ve tried to learn simply by immersion or by language helpers learn to communicate deeply. Many come to the school after months or years of frustration, still misunderstanding and being misunderstood! Why go the “what I need to get by” route when it’s the inimitable person of Jesus Christ that we’re wanting our friends to learn of and His yoke to bear!

The Roca Blanca Spanish Language School is located in a coastal fishing village in Oaxaca, Mexico, where students often live with a host family or in a rented furnished house. You get the benefits of both immersion and of a classroom environment. Missionaries and cross cultural Christians need enabling to communicate clearly and profoundly to Hispanic peoples. We can’t imagine settling for anything less. Can you?

4) Pre Mission Trip Devotional Now In Spanish

spanish missionAn effective pre mission trip devotional adopted by many ministries and churches has been “Before You Go” by former YWAM’er and Pastor Jack Hempfling. For ministries and churches working in Latin America, it has now been translated into Spanish. A few minutes a day in the presence of the Lord is where a heart is prepared for the cross cultural challenges that only God knows are coming your way (Team unity, servant attitudes, pride, humility towards the culture, and many more).

The “Before You Go” Spanish version, “Antes de Ir,” is for those whom God is sending from Latin America to the nations. Check it out at…

10) Special Website for Spanish-speaking “Third-Culture Kids”

spanish galWhere would you send missionary kids or “third-culture kids” as they are sometimes called? Les tipped us off this past week to a great site especially for those who have Spanish as a first language (or strong second language):

2) Is poor Spanish sufficient for communicating the Gospel?

Spanish / English classThe Roca Blanca Spanish Language School doesn’t think so either! They’ve been helping missionaries and cross-cultural Christians learn to communicate well in Spanish for the last five years from Oaxaca on Mexico’s Pacific coast. Students like the quality curriculum, methodology, and teachers, as well as the reasonable cost, and the great environment, both natural and spiritual, that they live and learn in. Learn more at…

8) Pro-life Videos in Spanish

Gabriel International

http://www.gabrielinternational.org

is inaugurating the Spanish version of two pro-life videos and accompanying literature with a workshop detailing how best to use this wonderful material. The workshop will be held in Medellín, Colombia on Saturday, July 27, 2013. The first video, “Una Admirable y Singular Creación,” leads viewers to understand the miracle of human life from conception to birth. The second, “Escoja La Vida,” tactfully shows the evils of abortion, and also teaches counselors how to help people heal who have already participated in an abortion. Representatives from other countries are encouraged to come to the workshop to learn how to most effectively use these tools. The workshop, DVD’s and literature will be provided free. For more information please contact Mark at

1) A Spanish school for missionaries and crosscultural Christians —

Located on the Pacific coast of Oaxaca, Mexico, far from any drug cartel activity or violence, the Roca Blanca Spanish Language School uses a culturally integrative approach to language learning. Missionary linguists assure us that you can’t fully learn another people’s language without also understanding their culture. The Roca Blanca Spanish Language School agrees, and includes into its already integrative and missionary minded curriculum several “culture days” which feature information and insights into various aspects of the surrounding cultures, and on Latin America in general. In most sessions the students also participate in indigenous mountain village medical brigades, helping the medical teams and/or doing children’s outreaches in these genuinely needy areas. Also, all of your tuition, after salaries for teachers and course materials, goes directly into the evangelization and medical work among the region’s indigenous peoples.

is where to look for lots more information. New sessions for all levels start every two months. And they’re always ready to answer whatever question, concern, or need for clarity that you might have through their contact page or at rocablancaspanishathotmaildotcom. Take a good look if Spanish and a heart for Spanish speakers are in your future! (Thanks to Roca Blanca for supporting Brigada, too!)

1) Who says Mexico isn’t safe!? (New School to Learn Spanish) —

It was necessary to add a “safety” page to the website at

http://rocablancaspanish.com

because some students (and their scared families!) have only heard the border horror stories, and don’t know that the Roca Blanca Spanish Language School is a long way removed from Mexico’s problem areas. You also easily avoid those areas when traveling there and back. The dates for the 2011 courses have also been revised, and new information has been generously added. Take a look!

The school is for those who are serious about communicating in Spanish. Located on the campus of a Bible school, Music school, and Medical Clinic for Oaxaca’s indigenous, it’s an ideal setting for learning, conversation, cultural integration, practical ministry, and rich interaction with both missionaries, Mexican staff, and local townspeople. The setting is beautiful, too, right on the Pacific Ocean. The course is written by missionaries who’ve learned the language themselves, and the grammar classes are done in English by a native English speaker. All of the other classes (six other distinct classes every two days) are taught by Mexicans trained in teaching their native language. Mission agencies send their new missionaries (presently from four countries), and then there are those who simply want to learn Spanish as part of God’s general plan for their lives.

All levels have openings now for the 2011 sessions. The school exists to equip you, and all profit goes to the Clinic and Bible school operations. Organizers say, “Come on down, and/or tell a friend!” (Thanks to the organizers for a $50 gift to Brigada!)

5) Operation World Spanish (2005) is still available! —

This translation is from the latest version, revised in 2005. (A team has just begun on translating the new 2010 edition, but it will probably not be out until late 2011.) You can get copies of this 2005 edition for the actual cost of printing/shipping to you. But you must order a full case of 20. The price is $4 per book or $80 per case, including shipping in the continental U.S.
