April Missions Training

In April we will be going to Los Angeles to Foursquare Headquarters for a missionary training intensive. It is 10 straight days of all-day instruction, much like a college intensive.  We have a number of reading materials to get through, such as:

  • Ministering Cross-Culturally by Sherwood Lingenfelter and Marvin Mayers.  Please take tests on pages 29 -35 prior to training and bring these with you to Orlando.
  • Doing What Jesus Did by John and Sonja Decker
  • Cross-Cultural Conflict by Duane Elmer
  • Disciples of All Nations: Continual Mission Until He Comes by John Amstutz with workbook by Gary Matsdorf     Please complete workbook responses prior to training.
  • Re-Entry by Peter Jordan
  • Culture Shock Poland

Some of it is required before the training and other parts are before we are deployed.  Eitherway it’s a lot to get in for a fully invovled family.  We are also scrambling to find someone to come with us (airfare & expenses paid, thanks to our Church) to baby-sit Emma while we are away during the days.  We’ve had a few people be interested but it just hasn’t worked out for anyone.

So that’s a quick update on what’s going on with our missions work.
