Dear Team Member,
We are very excited about having semester missionaries serving with us. Our excitement is doubled by having you serve back-to-back semesters. God is going to do great things through both of you.
The information on the pages listed below is to help you get ready to come serve with us. I have tried to give some practical information that will make things easier for you as you decide what to bring, what not to bring, and how to prepare. It answers most of the "Questions to ask your supervisor" listed on the IMB student website.
More resources to help you prepare can be found on the IMB website. They give a lot of practical information about preparing physically and spiritually to come, raising support, etc. Please search through this information. It can be found at http://thetask.org/students/approved/default.htm.
Another resource that you should make time to read is the volunteer preparation guide at the IMB website - http://going.imb.org/vim/Step_2/prep_guide.asp. When this letter was prepared there was a note on the IMB website that the current preparation guide may contain contact information that is not correct. A new guide is being prepared but the current version still has a lot of useful information in it.
This is going to be a great year. God is already at work redeeming this people back to Himself, and He is going to do great things through you.
Love in Him,
