More About This Book

Overview

How does it happen that two people can be experiencing the same circumstances and conditions on their mission trip, and one person is having a great time, while the other is miserable as can be?

And how can one short term mission team prepare so diligently for the practical ministry they'll be doing and be so ineffective as a group, while another team that seems less polished or skilled makes a huge mark in the culture they visit?

Could it be that the heart preparation is more important than it is given credit for?

In "Before You Go," experienced short term mission leader and trainer Jack Hempfling takes you on a 40 day journey that will bring you face to face with attitudes and issues that if not addressed, can make you or your group ineffective on the field. Get the most for your short term mission effort, finances, and preparation by getting your hearts ready. Walk with the Lord through this devotional and be equipped, informed, and made ready to joyfully pierce the darkness with all that you do.

"I wish someone had given me a copy of Jack's book when I was first starting out"
- Peter Warren, Director, Youth With a Mission, Denver

"Wonderfully done ... I would highly recommend that every missionary candidate prayerfully use this devotional tool, and by so doing, avoid many difficulties, and increase their fruitfulness"
- Tom Brazell, International Ministries Director, Elim Fellowship

"Each day the devotionals keep getting better"
- Don Richter, Director, Harvest Preparation International Ministries

"I will require every future team member to purchase and read "Before You GO," before we go!"
- Pastor Carol Missik, Living Word Church and Operation Capital City

    Awesome Book!

    Went on three mission trips already and I read it every time before I go. It really prepares your heart and touches on every issue on going out of the country.
