Description
Send Me! is a preparatory global mission workbook designed for those who desire to serve God cross-culturally and for those who want to help them. It can assist you working through the process of charting a course from where you are presently to where God would have you to be. Each of the ten steps presents an explanation of the importance of that phase of the process; and the workbook provides adequate room for you to write, reflect, plan, and pray. You and the nations await each other.
Abstract
This book outlines three major phases of missionary preparation and training, together with the steps involved in each phase. Topics covered include assessing fitness for missionary work, developing character qualities, linking with a church or mission agency for training and support, and establishing a ministry on the field with a view towards finishing well over the long haul. Study questions and journal worksheets help readers to determine where they are now, what they need to do next, and what the future will look like. Models of training paths with various churches and agencies are charted, and lists of global missions resources and training schools are provided.
