Becoming a Missionary?

Before we were engaged, Jodi and I knew we were called to missions. Twenty-six years later, the door opened for us with the organization Mission Next.  Through our process of becoming missionaries we wanted to share our resources gathered along the way.

 

Check out the resources below on becoming a missionary, Bible translation, missionary work in PNG, and our book recommendations
