Once the questions are answered, it’s time for the church to PREPARE to send this worker (or team of workers) out. Although there’s not as much preparation involved in short term missions, it’s still important to be intentional about what you’re doing. Involve others in the preparation process. If they are going through one of our teams, stay connected and ensure that they are complying with the preparation process. If they are going by themselves or with a few others “on their own”, we can provide information on how to prepare and you can contact us for that. If it is required for the particular short term mission, you can let MSC help you to develop connections with the believers at the worker’s destination, sort out international travel and customs, and make sure that as your church sends this worker the finances are handled in keeping with government regulations for charitable organizations.
