Product Description

A must for people heading out on short-term missions and help for parents to loosen their clammy grip on their kids who go.

Publisher's Description

Can I drink the water?

But I don't speak the language.

You want me to sleep where?

They eat what?

How am I going to raise that much money?

Is it really God's will for me to go?

I don't know how to share the gospel.

Are you ready?

More than one million people will go into all the world on short-term missions trips this year. Are you ready to be one of them?

Anne-Geri' and Greg have been in the field and led teams there-and back. They will help you prep and pack for the trip, put their arms around you while you're gone, and offer perspective as you reenter "normal" life.

How to Get Ready for Short-Term Missions will help you:

  • Pack your suitcase and prepare your heart
  • Build genuine relationships with the locals
  • Understand cultural differences
  • Deal with physical fatigue
  • Combat stretched emotions

There's even a chapter for clammy-handed parents!

With humor and experience, Anne-Geri' and Greg ask questions you can't hide from and help you focus on your true mission.
