 May and June have been filled with travel for me. First to Budapest for the [[http://​sendutraining.blogspot.com/​2011/​05/​new-leadership-couples-retreat-in.html|New Leadership Couples'​ Orientation]]. Then to Khabarovsk to teach a course at the Far East Russia Bible College. Next to Germany for our first-ever "​[[:​belt_-_germany|Becoming an Effective Leader of a Team" training]]for all the team leaders from Eurasia and the Eurasia Family Conference. And finally back to Canada for a short home service this summer. May and June have been filled with travel for me.

-Our SEND U Leadership Team has been discussing ways that we can strengthen our pre-field training for new missionaries. [[:​member_orientation_program|Our goals in MOP]] are not primarily to "​cover"​ or deliver a certain body of information,​ but rather to equip our new members to bond to SEND and successfully navigate the transition to effective cross-cultural ministry. To better accomplish our objectives, our Member Orientation Program has been recently revised and this summer ([[:​file_view_weekly_20schedule_202011.xlsx_237126710_weekly_20schedule_202011.xlsx|July 10-22 in Farmington]]), we will be addressing new topics such as disciple-making,​ teaming and working with the national church. We will also be putting a bigger emphasis on church planting training in MOP. We will be taking all the MOPers to Dearborn to gain a better understanding of engaging the unreached, particularly M people groups. For the future, we are exploring how we might include an on-line component to the MOP training, so that the actual face-to-face interaction at MOP would be less content-heavy.+Our SEND U Leadership Team has been discussing ways that we can strengthen our pre-field training for new missionaries.

-We are also wondering whether we need to do some sort of an on-field refresher (a "​Re-MOP"​) midway through the first term. So much is forgotten in the years between MOP and the time that a first-term missionary transitions into their first ministry assignment. During our recent Eurasia Family Conference, I had the opportunity to interview many of our first-term missionariesand learned much about the questions and challenges they face as they face multiple transitions from home culture to host culture and from language school to ministry assignment. Our SEND U regional coordinators are currently talking to first termers and area leaders to assess the need for such a refresher program. I invite any of you to write us about your thoughts on what SEND U can do to better equip first-term missionaries for incarnational ministry and cross-cultural service.+We are also wondering whether we need to do some sort of an on-field refresher (a "​Re-MOP"​) midway through the first term.

-Equipping for effective ministry must also include equipping people to work with those of other cultures, not just the host culture of the people we are seeking to engage, but also the diverse home cultures of our fellow teammates. At the Eurasia Family Conference this month, Regina Waschko facilitated an excellent training session on multi-cultural teaming. You can find her handouts as well as many other resources on [[teaming|teaming building on the SEND U wiki]]. Regina will be also addressing the topic of multi-cultural teaming at MOP this summer, and Frank Severn will be teaching on this subject at the [[:​belt_-_taiwan|team leader training (ARES)]] in Taiwan in October. Both Regina and Frank are well qualified to teach on this subject, and I encourage you to contact them if you think your team or area could benefit from this type of training.
