    Let's Make Memories!

    Sometimes 911s happen. So what do we do when we're the ones at home?

    If you've ever been on a mission trip, you know that things don't always go according to plan. Sometimes an emergency happens and you need to get the word out to the folks back home without causing panic. One way to do this is to have a pre-designed phone tree. This way, you can quickly and efficiently spread the word without having to go through a lot of channels. The key is to design the phone tree in such a way that it can be easily activated in an emergency. This way, you can focus on solving the problem at hand, instead of worrying about how to communicate with everyone.

    PIP from your trip!


    (Processing in Prayer...)

    Share some of the things with God about what you have learned from this experience. Tell Him everything you can remember about your trip.


    And WHY? Because He has something to tell you too!


    Colour and greyscale versions are available.

    Leaving the Quiver

    Printable Bookmark

    I invite you to look over the “overview” bookmark and I especially want you to think about the second “T” in the list. I have known some parents who have said they felt closer to their children when they were also doing an unusual work of service while their kid was away.


    It is also something you can share with your child when they return. You have some kind of common ground you might not have had before, a step towards better understanding why their eyes are aglow with new light.


    Colour and greyscale versions available.

    Not all, but most mission trips are to third world countries. This is a direct upload to a suggested packing list if your mission trip happens to be to one of those.


    Some items are tagged as something you will want to ASK YOUR MISSION LEADER about! This is a great list as it has been used multiple times by many mission groups to Honduras, Mexico, Peru, Guatemala, Argentina and Uruguay (and those are the only ones the writers at Godspeed Missions have gone on or know about).


    Processing Your Team's Mission Trip (after the trip AND, more importantly, before they go!)

    If you are a mission group leader, you know it is important to address RE-ENTRY back to their home country as it is spiritually profitable to prepare the team before the trip. You may need to help some members adjust back to their daily lives.


    This preparation, originally available at TheScriptureScout.com will open their eyes and hearts even greater as the trip continues. It is a fun and easy PowerPoint to guide you and your team through those thoughts. It does help to process these things after your trip, but it is much MORE effective before. ;-)

    Walton's Proverbs

    fun short-term missionary

    advice from a serious pro

    Dear friend,

    A missionary who had a great impact on the PrediSan Health Ministries in Honduras, Charlie Walton was a very well-respected short-term missionary to Honduras (and long-term missionary to everyone around him). This is my collection of his personal proverbs concerning mission work that he uttered at one time or another on one of his many ventures to the deep, deep south.


    A couple of years before he passed into glory, he gave me permission to use (or mess with) some of them in my book on missions. I feel sure there are many, many others. I share them with you so that they may give you a little laugh, but ultimately, a little perspective about things that can happen on the short-term mission field. Enjoy. *wink*

    Love, Angie

    you can be a missionary to your neighbour!

    A simple graphic for how you can naturally become a missionary ... and start with your neighbour! Or classmate. Or that guy who checks you out at the supermarket. Whoever!
    You already know that the only way to follow Christ indeed is by uniting with Him in his mission of making disciples - reaching those lost! We need all sorts of gifts and talents (and resources!) to assist us in our service to Him. We need wisdom from HIM so we can do this effectively!

    "Let your light so shine ..."

    This is a direct upload to a monthly list to look over at the end of the month and THINK POSITIVELY about what went RIGHT over the few weeks that passed.


    If this past year was difficult to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for you, I'll bet you still have some memories to hang your hat on. As my mother-in-love says every time we see her, "Let's make memories!"


    So I name this year-at-a-glance after her. Let's DO make those memories and I pray you to keep making beautiful ones...
