Though as binding on faithful Muslims as the Qur'an, we know so little about them. Hence, we really appreciate Phil Parshall's efforts to help us fill that gap in our knowledge." Dr Andrew Ng, SIM

From: (Dave Imboden) The USCWM is pleased to announce the completion of a resource that has long been in the works--the Mission Mobilizer's Handbook. Containing 45 pages of resources, overviews of 9 national level "generic" mobilization/service agencies and movements and 14 articles related to the frontier missions movement and mobilization. This 140 page handbook was initially created for USCWM reps, offices, and Perspectives Coordinators, but now it is tailored to be used also by the Mission America campaign--hence it carries a Mission America banner at the top of the front cover. Prices are: $8.95 retail $6.50 discount (your price through William Carey Library) $4.92 wholesale (for purchases of 3 or more) Boxes of 56 sold for $200.00 (equals $3.57 per copy) Ideally, we envision these being utilized by denominations and agencies, as they contain generic materials that are not promoting individual agencies or denominations. We also foresee generic mobilizers utilizing the handbooks to saturate the churches and campus fellowships of their cities and areas. One strategy for generic mobilizers would be to contact all the churches and fellowships in their cities to discover who the key missions contacts are, then call these folks to arrange visits, or to find out how you can best drop off a handbook for their perusal. You can suggest that they check it out and if they want it they can purchase it. If not they can give it back. Suggested selling price: $5.00 (Note: Ideally mobilizers should be acquainted with many of the resources, classes and concepts through utilizing them in their own churches before promoting them elsewhere) Order through William Carey Library at: (818) 798-0819. Master Card / Visa orders can use 1-800-MISSION. Note: Every purchase of Vision for the Nations video curriculum includes the Mission Mobilizer's Handbook.
