Saturday morning Plenary Session will include the following speakers: Dr. Duane Elmer, Professor at Wheaton College, will lecture on the purpose and goals of Short Term Mission (STM) trips. Dr. Muriel Elmer, International Health and Education Consultant, will lecture on public health issues involving STM trips. Dr. Christine Sine, author and lecturer from Seattle, Washington will lecture on the goals and obstacles of medical STM trips. Dr. & Mrs. David Thompson, career missionaries as a general surgeon and nurse in Gabon, West Africa, will end the morning Plenary Session discussing the goals and obstacles of being career missionaries. Lunch will be provided for attendees.
A total of 9 Breakout Sessions will be held in the afternoon with each of the morning speakers presenting an in-depth session on their individual specialty topics in the afternoon. Dr. Charles Kelley, Professor at Indiana School of Medicine, will present a typical day on a medicine ward in Kenya, East Africa.

DISCLAIMER — Please note that there’s no way we can possibly screen all the text on all the web sites or items we recommend. We try to check them out first… but if we miss something, please don’t assume that the opinions on those sites are identical to those of the Brigada family of networks. “Eat the corn, leave the cob!”

SUBMITTING CONTENT — To submit content or ideas to Brigada Today, first please get a copy of “Guidelines for submitting items to Brigada” Then, once you’ve composed your item in keeping with those guidelines, send your item for Brigada Today to DLucas@teamexpansion.org.
Emphasis is placed on items relating to unreached peoples and challenges faced by those reaching them cross-culturally.
PLEASE DON’T SUBSCRIBE US TO YOUR LIST — It’s always better to ask before manually force-adding anyone to your list-serve or mailing list. Recently, tons of well-meaning people have been subscribing Doug to their lists. Since he often travels overseas, he doesn’t join many of those, for obvious reasons (like being charged big-time for overseas access). So as a general rule, please don’t bulk-mail us! See the note above if you’d like to submit items for Brigada Today. Thanks for understanding. Bottom line: We will never create Brigada Today items from bulk mail. Bulk mail gets deleted immediately — sorry. Nothing personal. We suggest you apply the same standard to everyone. Ask first!
WARNING ABOUT FORWARDING EMAILS — Please, before forwarding any kind of request (even if it says “please send this to all your friends”), please check to make sure it has a VERIFIABLE ORIGIN, a VERIFIABLE PURPOSE, and a VERIFIABLE CLOSURE (OPC). By following this simple approach, many “email viruses” could be nipped in the bud… at least in the Brigada family. More information about the full Brigada OPC protocol is available. Thank you.
