2) JoshuaProject Now Can Print Profiles Directly from "New" Site!

Remember our item from the Feb. 3rd edition (“14) The Last Bit: How to Print a UPG Profile at JoshuaProject.net”)? We spelled out a work-around for the fact that one couldn’t print JoshuaProject Unreached People Group profiles directly from the corresponding web-pages. The work-around was — in order to print a hard-copy of a UPG profile, one had to use the legacy site. Well, as we said in that item, “Give them some time. There are few services as responsive as JoshuaProject.net.” We rest our case. Now, a mere three weeks later, they’ve completed writing new code that now allows you to print a VERY attractive profile from any unreached people group in their entire database! Way to go, Dan, Bill, and others! We appreciate you!


14) The Last Bit: How to Print a UPG Profile at JoshuaProject.net

Ever since the guys at JoshuaProject rolled out the new look of their spiffy new website (about 2 years ago, I’m guessing? maybe longer), we had lost the ability to physically print (or even generate a simple one-page PDF of) an unreached people group profile. Remember the good ole days when the old website would let us do that? So we finally dropped a note to the helpful staff to ask. Guess what they suggested! Look for the ROG3 country code and the Peo3 people code using the new site, then plug those values into this syntax to use the old legacy site to queue up the page you’re seeking. (You’re saying, WHAT?) Seriously. Suppose you want to print a one-page profile for the Crimean Tatar of Ukraine. First go to …



to find them. Put the name of the UPG in the search box, click the “People Groups” radio button, then hit search. This shows you a list of People Groups containing the search term you entered. Click on the people group. This will take you to a description of the UPG across countries (if the UPG is found in more than one country). The last element of the URL will be the Peo3 people code. Jot that down. In the case of the Crimean Tatar, it’s 11434. Now you need the ROG3 country code. You can find that by scrolling down the page until you see the list of countries in which this UPG is found. Click on the country. This will take you to a description of the UPG in that country (and I bet JoshuaProject someday adds a “click-to-print” button on this page, because this is the page we all grew up printing. : ) The last two letters of this URL are the ROG3 country code. Jot that down. Now use the template:




where XX is the ROG3 code and NNNNN is the Peo3 people code. In our example of the Crimean Tatars, the URL would look like this:




Try it. It’s like magic! : ) The odd thing is, as of today, there’s no direct way to come up with that super-helpful page on the new site. But give them some time. There are few services as responsive as JoshuaProject.net. : ) In the meantime, you can still get the page you were wanting using this work-around. : )



11) Please pause and Give Thanks for Progress among the Qashqa’i !

kashkaiA donor from this past week asked if we could pause and pray for progress among sharing the Good News with nomads of Iran and specifically the Qashqa’i. There have been amazing reports of God moving among them this year. But if you would, please also pray for continued growth and outreach — and while you’re at it, please give thanks for a donor who cares about an unreached people group enough to give to Brigada on their behalf. Talk about encouragement! May they be fully reached some day soon!
