Today the world is as close as an airplane flight. Thousands take advantage of this, going for short visits to other countries to be more involved in God's worldwide mission. How can you prepare for such a trip? What are the hazards to avoid and the opportunities to embrace? Here is field-tested advice you should not leave home without! Mack and Leeann Stiles are veteran leaders of more than a dozen two-month mission trips that have taken them around the globe. Their practical advice, hard-won lessons and hilarious stories will help you know what to expect as you get ready to see God in action in new ways. This book offers you the keys to

  • establishing partnerships with sending churches
  • learning from your hosts in the countries you visit
  • becoming a culturally sensitive person
  • overcoming the shortcomings of short-term missions
  • growing a servant spirit
  • learning to trust God, your hosts and yourself
  • facing injustice with realism and compassion
  • speaking about Jesus in a way that makes sense in a new culture
  • dealing with reentry culture shock when you get back home
Short mission trips can put feet on your knowledge of God and give you a God-sized picture of the world. In the process of going you will grow, and even though you may feel inadequate or scared, you will also give much to those you go to.

About the Author:

Mack Stiles is CEO of Gulf Digital Solutions and general secretary for the Fellowship of Christian UAE Students (FOCUS) in the United Arab Emirates. He has worked for many years with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship in the United States. He is the author of Speaking of Jesus and coauthor with his wife of Mack and Leeann's Guide to Short-Term Missions.

Review:

"This excellent book makes short-term missions a possibility for everyday Christians. Yet it has not avoided problem areas, and so brings a realistic and honest perspective to this exploding movement. The biblical illustrations and [the Stiles's] personal stories from their wide experience means this is a must-read book for everyone going overseas." (John Kyle, senior vice president, Evangelical Fellowship of Mission Agencies)
