How to Travel Abroad

Best practices for cross-cultural ministry.

Last week, we continued our series of short-term missions downloads with a download of practical articles for crossing cultures. (You can see it here.)

This week, we're continuing this focus. We've created a Listmania collection on Amazon to pull together the best resources for cross-cultural ministry. We're including novels in our list, in case you want to discuss fiction rather than non-fiction. (Some excellent, practical books are on our list, too.)

Now it's your turn. Contribute to our Listmania, or let us know about the resources you rely on for taking short-term missions teams outside of their comfort zone (and culture).

Post a comment below to tell us what works for you. If it's a book, give us a sentence or two about why it's valuable, and we'll update our Listmania. If it's a website or article, give us a link and we'll point people there.

Let's create a comprehensive list of books, articles, and websites, and let's help each other cross cultures with the Good News.
