People have been asking us exactly what we did at our recent Phase IV training with TEAM. It is hard to summarize exactly what we did… but basically we were in seminars/workshops for 8+ hours a day in preparation for leaving for Mexico next month.
We love TEAM and the staff in the home office and we felt there was not one hour wasted over the course of the week…really!
Spiritual Warfare, Intercultural Competency, Helping Your Kids Transition, Church Multiplication, Personal Well-Being, Crisis Preparedness, Protection Policies, Working in Multicultural Teams, Language Limitations in Communicating Religious Truths, Kingdom View vs Personal Salvation, Retirement Savings & Health Benefits, Cultural Contextualization, Ethnographic Study, Medical Issues Overseas, Worldviews, Financing & Budgeting, Culture Shock, Preparing to Say Good-Bye, Leadership Development, Personal Growth Plan & Day of Vision/Prayer, Communicating with Ministry Partners, Cultural Learning Activities….and lots of time getting to know the wonderful staff in the main office who oversee and assist us while on the field!
I’m tired just thinking about all that again!
