“I have no time to do courses”
Yes, preparing for the field is challenging and time-consuming. Who has additional time to do a course? This is why our courses have been designed so that you can do them at your own pace and when it suits you. The time you spend learning early on will save you time and trouble later on. Here’s why:
The most challenging time for missionaries is the time of preparation, and the first two years on the field. The time of preparation includes many challenges, like raising the support, preparing the family to go, and much more. The first two years on the field presents its own challenges: getting visas, adapting to a new country’s lifestyle and culture, learning one or two languages, and more.
Knowing beforehand what’s coming and how to handle it will be of great help to you. Some knowledge and preparation will save you time and a lot of trouble! Here our courses can help, especially Missions 101.
One of our students made a very relevant comment on our course discussion forums:
“Words are inadequate to express my heartfelt thanks to the Lord for this wonderful course. It is my heartbeat [sic] desire of reaching the unreached people in the world and faithfully proclaim the true Gospel of salvation, hence I expect to learn more about cross culture that will afford me the opportunity to minister to my hearers without offending them. Many souls are dying every second, minute, hour without knowing the Lord Jesus Christ” Opoku-Asamoa, Ghana (2020).
