Practical Mission Resources

One of the most valuable resources online for missionaries is Brigada.Org.

For example, in today's e-letter:

PRACTICAL TRAINING TO HELP THE POOR TO HELP THEMSELVES -- Time is running out! The Chalmers Center for Economic Development at Covenant College, in partnership with Food for the Hungry International and World Relief, is offering training in Bangkok, Thailand on May 24 - June 2, 2004 and at Lookout Mountain, GA USA from August 2 - 11, 2004. This training focuses on innovative, best practice microenterprise development and microfinance strategies and methodologies that can be used in holistic, Christ-centered programs.

The $300 conference fee includes housing and meals and must be received by July 1. Twelve worldview workshops and 24 general workshops will provide tools for ministry including survey strategies, effective approaches in eliciting a faith response, communicating the gospel in understandable ways, strategic intercession, etc. Please contact consultwomen@cs.com for additional information, and furnish a secure e-mail address to which we can respond.
