Description :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.
