2) Balancing the Sword is a Comprehensive Study Guide for the Bible

…and we mean the whole Bible. It literally asks you questions about every single chapter, beginning to end, Genesis to Revelation. Honestly, we can’t remember ever seeing anything so comprehensive in our whole lives. This would *especially* be useful for the business as missions type guy or gal who went to a university, but didn’t get to study at a Bible college. But it would also be SUPER for the Bible college or seminary grad because it would act as a cool review for the whole book! Check out the two books at…

5) Make Strides in Language Learning before Going Overseas!

Seats are filling up for the upcoming Four-Dimensional Language Learning course, August 19-22. The course is offered in Minneapolis by Professionals Global (at4Goddotpro) in partnership with Arrive Ministries (@ArriveMinistries).

 

The 4DLL course introduces meaningful language learning principles, focusing on the Growing Participator Approach. This approach is used throughout the world to help language learners, often in places where there is no formal language school. The methods used in the approach are easy, fun, and firmly based in linguistic research.

 

It’s a beautiful time of year to visit Minneapolis!

7) Brigada Participant Feels Strongly that Mobile TSA App is Great

A Brigada participant gave input this past week once again on the mobile passport app that TSA now honors in certain airports.

 

www.cbp.gov/travel/us-citizens/mobile-passport-control

 

His point was — for many, it’s a GREAT deal financially. He spoke as a field worker and requested that we not mention him by name as we write or report. But, bottom line, choose the deal that works best for you and thanks for being a part of Brigada.

10) Google Translate Works So Well, it’s Plain Weird

When we were kids, growing up, science fiction movies would speak about a universal translator that not only could translate into just about any language you choose, but, in addition, it would even figure out what language your new contact was speaking. Hello 2019. Google Translate is nearly there.  Check it out at…

 

translate.google.com/

 

Just type in any language on the left and watch the translation pop out on the right. It’s astonishing.

11) Howard Culbertson Amazes Us

When we grow up, we want to be like Howard Culbertson:

 

home.snu.edu/~hculbert/

 

He pretty much just about archives the world there at his site. The missionary call, missiology, maps, introduction to biblical literature… the list goes on forever. Please Lord, bless this man.
