Publisher's Description

"A question for church leaders and mission trip leaders: Are you adequately preparing your short-term teams as they go into harm's way?" Chapter 1"Short-term mission teams are in most cases not prepared to prevent crises from happening nor are they prepared to deal with problems once they develop. As a matter of fact, we believe teams are drastically underprepared and as a result may be put into high-risk situations by their sending churches." Chapter 1"A crisis prevention and response program supports short term teams by building upon a set of principles and processes that establishes a 'safety versus ministry' equation for each trip..." Chapter 5"Drinking water - even bottled water - is probably the number one cause of sickness in a foreign field." Chapter 10"Lee and Steve have given a wonderful and I believe a life-saving gift to the church. They have given us a workable, well thought-through way of anticipating eventualities and how churches can or should respond. It is a wonderful tool to help us to be good, responsible stewards of the people God has entrusted to our care. Your church or organization will greatly benefit from their insights and suggestions."
