2) With All the Instability this Spring, Need Video Security? —

Now you can order it — affordably. Just visit…

 

https://www.dropcam.com/

 

Check out the Dropcam basic (no audio) for $199 and the Dropcam Echo, with audio, for $279. Both are relatively easy to install. You won’t need an I.T. degree or even a book. All you’ll need is access to your wifi router. (If you don’t have one, then yes — you might need some help setting one up.) Highly recommended.

5) MissionMakr.com is Intent on Making Your Mission Easier —

If there was ever a doubt, check out their 4-minute video at…

 

http://www.missionmakr.com

 

Their goals? Merely to “Engage the body of Christ, impact people going on short-term trips, and do it in less time, with less effort and less cost.” Watch the video to get the whole story, but in a phrase, they’re trying to make it easier for teams to be effective in short-term mission trips. Check ’em out if you travel overseas. They’ve recently reduced their price structure, by the way.

9) “The Waiting World,” = the Best New Missions DVD —

See if you agree: This DVD on the 10/40 Window and the major world religions are destined to become best sellers. I just hope they don’t sell out too soon. Just to get Israel Houghton’s “We Speak To Nations” would be well worth the $12.95. Shew. At that price, this DVD is a steal. Best thing since those Urbana videos from the turn of the new century. Finally, they’re refreshed. Yes!

12) Mama Shekinah Documentary Available in English —

Mama Shekinah is a phenomenal true story filmed in Sudan, about a missionary couple attacked by child soldiers from the Lord’s Resistance Army.  The husband is killed, and the wife who is pregnant at the time of the ambush, eventually returns with her two year old daughter Shekinah, to work with child soldiers in Uganda and Sudan. You can watch the trailer at

By the way, pray for Sudan this week, as the South votes on whether or not they’d like to separate from the North.

4) “The Waiting World, Special Edition” —

The producers of the prayer video series, “The Waiting Word” have just completed a new edition, and are making it available to readers of Brigada Today. This edition of the series contains six 7-9 minute videos showcasing the 10/40 Window, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Animism/Tribalism. There is also a bonus music video set to Israel Houghton’s song, “We Speak to Nations”.  The music video would be a good introduction for a missions seminar or presentation, while the prayer videos for each of the major religions of the 10/40 Window could be used to introduce a time of prayer for that religion or a people group of that faith.  The 10/40 Window video gives a basic understanding of the 10/40 Window along with an explanation of why it is important. As a special discount, readers of Brigada Today can email the producers at

2) Cool Video Promotes “Scripture Servants” —

When I grow up, I want to make videos like this one, promoting the idea and the opportunity of “Scripture Servants.” You’ll see what I mean:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rs8LpG3Eksk

See? So what would I need in order to become that good? :-) And by the way, you can experience 5 days of Bible storying in beautiful Orlando, Florida with Campus Crusade for Christ and learn to train others. This trainers’ training Feb 28- Mar 4, 2011 is for individuals, churches, and mission agencies. The workshop begins at 6pm on Monday and ends at noon on Friday.  The cost for on-site lodging, meals, materials, and airport ground transfers is $350 per person.  For details visit

2) Where else Can You Pick up 175 free videos from a Global Event? —

Only at Lausanne….

http://www.lausanne.org/cape-town-2010/schedule.html

Maybe you knew about videos, but maybe you hadn’t realized they’ve now done study questions, transcriptions, and they’re in the process of doing machine translations into the major languages of Lausanne. This is the conference that keeps on conferring. And the more you make use of these resources, the happier they are. So go for it. Try part of one for your next event.

2) Need to video-link with your Favorite Missionary Mobile? —

Now you can. As long as you’ve got Android or iPhone, that is. And Tango.

http://www.tango.me/

This came from active Brigada participant, Caleb. They’ve apparently found a way to squeeze a Skype-like video call into an iPhone or Android smartphone. Alas, I’ll never know (I’m on Windows Mobile). The launch was evidently so successful, within one single *hour* it became the largest social-networking craze on the entire Internet, beating out both Twitter, Skype, and Facebook — of all things. (I guess Facebook has now fought its way back into the number one spot… *barely*.) So if you’re blessed with the right phone, give it a shot. The price is right. (Free)

2) Show Journey to Everest Free at Your Church

Remember that cool missions video documentary on steroids about the short-term missions trip to climb Everest?

Well now they’ve set up a deal by which you can get the movie for free if you show it to your church or group on July 11. You can also use it as a fundraiser for your own short-term missions trip (regardless of whether or not you’re climbing a mountain :-) ). They even let you preview the entire movie online. Learn more at their website.

Be sure to watch the special online video there explaining the plan.

4) Links to Great Jesus Videos

We evidently weren’t the only one trying to figure out how to save YouTube videos for offline use. An anonymous user wrote this past week, thanking us, and also pointing us to four great Jesus videos worthy of downloading offline:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZUTt8XINPY&feature=related

(Revelation Song – Kari Jobe)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lbx8ua1B1p4&feature=related

(Revelation Song – Phillips,Craig,&Dean)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzqTFNfeDnE&feature=related

(That’s My King – Dr. S.M. Lockridge)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=trPPAcvK8_8&feature=related

(That’s My King – Rock Mix)

He wrote, “The DVDVideoSoft program for downloading YouTube to my XP laptop worked great, and I’ve now got the 3 videos above on my computer after only a few minutes.” God be praised, brother! Glad we could share a lesson learned from our own quest!

3) How to Convert a YouTube Video to an Offline Format

Did you ever face that dilemma? You wanted to show a video to an upcoming Perspectives class or to a Sunday School class… but you just weren’t sure you’d have access to the Internet in that environment. So ideally, you’d like to “harvest” the video off YouTube to some format that would play on your laptop solo — sort of like a DVD does, but from your hard drive instead. But you go to the YouTube page and… there really doesn’t appear to be any capability for that.

Well I faced that this past week with several YouTube videos I wanted to use when teaching Perspectives. I asked our I.T. guy for his favorite tool, because — honestly — every time I figure this out, it’s 6 months before I have to use it again and I forget! :-) He suggested a download service from dvdvideosoft.com. It didn’t work correctly on my browser/PC, for whatever reason. (He’s a Mac guy, so that might have been it.) But their free iPod converter seemed to do the trick flawlessly. (Play with the settings until it works for you.)

http://www.dvdvideosoft.com/products/dvd/Free-YouTube-to-iPod-Converter.htm

This URL will “wrap”.. so if you have trouble reassembling it, just go to the Brigada webpage and click on the link we’ll provide you there. Snag that free program, convert the YouTube video to an iPod-compatible video, make sure you have QuickTime from Apple (I know; it was with great fear and trembling that I installed it again. Just make sure you uncheck the boxes that add free things that you don’t want), and you’re in business. The videos played at a fairly high level resolution *and* I didn’t have to worry about bandwidth stall-outs or connectivity in general. Good luck!

1) Can’t put This Trip Report Video Trailer into Words

How many of us have made videos from our mission trips? (Hands raise all over the room.) How many of us, while on a mission trip, have been bumped from a flight? (Almost as many hands go up.) How many of us have witnessed those flights (that bumped us) going down and killing every passenger on board, sobering us with the realization that we were scheduled to have been on that flight? (The room is motionless… except for the makers of this video.)

Journey to Everest is the video of that group’s experience in the Himilayas. They are a group from Nashville that recently completed an expedition to Everest Base Camp. They became participants in a story that made world-wide news when the plane that was scheduled to fly them into the Himalayas crashed on its way into the mountains, killing the 18 passengers on board. Their team was bumped from Yeti Airlines flight 103 just before it took off, sparing our lives.

Eventually, they made it into the Himalayan mountains and experienced an adventure that changed their lives and challenged their faith. Ultimately, they were exposed to mission work in Nepal that compelled them into action once they returned home. They documented their story in this film. It tells their story as it unfolded, from the plane crash, the expedition to Everest, and the mission work of which they were a part. Since completing the film, they have used it as a tool to spread the Gospel. To date, they have raised over $60,000 for mission work. They have also used the film to raise support for over 300 Nepali refugees that were brought to our city by the United Nations.

The trailer is spectacular. This is the way mission films should be. This is the way I want to shoot movies when I grow up. :-)

6) Catch this Video on the “10 C’s of a Biblical Worldview”

[Note: We originally included this item without having previewed this free video (using our policy, “We can’t screen ’em all,” as is stated in “Closing Stuff” of each Brigada mailing). However, please remember that the content in this video is that of the producer, not of Brigada — and we’re not asserting that we believe it is necessarily the Biblical worldview. We are leaving it posted here for legacy’s sake — and in case you’d like to comment. The Editor.]

Faithe is offering this video for you!

Thanks Faithe!

4) New Video Resources for Home Gatherings, etc., all Online

createinternationalCheck out Create International’s cool new DVD resources at their online store:

http://www.createinternational.com/store

They have finished the first ever Contextual Home Gathering video for people from a Thai Buddhist background. Indigenous instruments, dance, symbols and appropriate word choices all came together for a lively presentation that will reach millions of Thais. Other new resources include “Contextualization in Action” and “Contextual Gathering Showreel”, which shows six examples of home group gatherings among Hindi, Kurds, Turks, Indonesian, Urdu, and now Thais. Subtitled in English, this is a great tool for showing believers who may worship in different cultural styles, but who are all united in their love for God.
