Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As someone still new to short term missions, I very much recommend this book. It is written by a cardiologist who has been on several short term missions in recent years. The missions has been to central America and central Africa. The book truly is a comprehensive manual for planning and performing short term missions. The author provides his own numerous personal mission experiences. The book covers the logistical, social, psychological, spiritual, physical, mental, and financial aspects of short term missions. This book will help mitigate any fear or apprehension you may have in performing short term missions.
