Country-Specific Reading Lists:

Besides this general reading list, each of you will also have a country-specific reading list. Each SEND receiving country provides a list of books, articles and/or videos that will be helpful in understanding the history, culture and ministry challenges in that particular country. You can find the list of resources on the SEND U wiki under Country reading lists. If you cannot find a book or video, please contact the country field leader. From the list provided you should complete a minimum of 400 pages of reading. Field-specific reading is also to be completed by appointees before their first departure for the field.
