2) Former Special Ops Professionals will Help You Prepare for the Worst

Next time a donor or family member asks you if you’ve done your best to prepare for the unlikely event that you’ll face a violent encounter or other critical incident overseas, look them right in the eye and say, “By God’s grace, I’m ready.” Gear up with “STRES Training,” July 5-7, at Team Expansion’s Emerald Hills Campus on the outskirts of Louisville, KY. “STRES” stands for “Safe Travel In Risky Environments Seminar,” and it will be led by battle-hardened professionals from Morton Security. (In fact, Peter Morton himself is the lead trainer.) This experience is for anyone who is traveling or relocating to a risky location and is concerned about the safety of their org, partners or family as well as their own safety. It involves both classroom and hands-on training and will require individuals to work both individually and in a team environment. Attendees will learn how to plan local and international travel with risk mitigation in mind and ultimately, avoid a crisis. Each attendee will be challenged to question and solidify their motivations, leadership skills, experience, and even their faith. It is tailored to Faith-Based Organizations and can be attended by both families as well as teams/groups traveling to the field together. The cost is just $150, including lunch, snacks, outdoor training experiences and all materials. (Note… that’s $150 total; not $150/day. Shew. Where else could you get this kind of training for this price?!)  For more information, visit…

5) Zúme Course Continues Moving Forward (Web-Driven DMM Training)

Most disciple-making movement (DMM) trainers would say that live training is always preferred. But for places and times when you simply can’t go personally, Zúme offers an excellent training option. It’s a web-driven, life-on-life experience among 4 to 12 people, guided by online tools and short (3-5-minute) videos. Over 5,000 people from 107 countries have already registered to check it out. Over 1,000 of those have finished through the 9th session (out of 10), meaning that Zúme has already spun out over 5000 hours of training — and all the training is offered free of charge because of donors and volunteers. The course is already available free of charge in 9 languages, including English, Arabic, Farsi, Hindi, Indonesian, Somali, Spanish, Telugu and Thai. Other translations that are very close to finishing include Italian, Swahili, Portuguese, Mandarin, French, and Cantonese. Lao, German, Korean, and Turkish are in the pipeline. If you want to translate Zúme, a kit of help files is available. It can take as little as 3-5 months with the right people. If you’d like to sponsor a translation, the typical cost is around $7500.

10) Fun to Watch this "Disciple-Making Practices" Video…

The last we heard, that number had now swollen to something more than 1000 movements all around the world. Let’s give praise to God for these indicators of rapid and fervent growth, then let’s get busy and join them!
