Now that we are in the beginning of Ramadan, this site has some cool resources to pray for Muslims. And you can get an email everyday during Ramadan for what to pray for. Very good info.

wow. that world map thing is much much cooler than i thought at first. if you are into world geography, frontier missions or mobilization, you need to bookmark it. Check out the interactive digital atlas.
World Map Very cool, maps of evangelization and bible translation for all the countries (or most of them) in the world. Can also search by country profiles.

Thinking about the best way to convey to the SPACE team (mostly students) that service is not an end to itself and this whole thing can be much bigger than just service projects. It has the potential to change the way students see others, the way they live day to day, the way that they view the world, not only around them, but the global world, knowing that most of the world still has never heard the name of Jesus.
“As I travel, I have observed a pattern, a strange historical phenomenon of God “moving” geographically from the Middle East, to Europe to North America to the developing world. My theory is this: God goes where he’s wanted.” - Phillip Yancey
. As quoted in The Next Christendom
Faith based service holds incredible appeal for the next generation of believers. In an email poll of the campus chaplains at evangelical Christian colleges, fifteen of seventeen respondents said they had seen a significant rise in student interest in service projects and missions trips in recent years. Short-term mission trips are particularly popular among today’s teenagers and young adults: the number of people taking them has increased exponentially, from about 25,000 in 1979 to 120,000 in 1989. By 1995, the number of short-term missionaries had swelled to 200,000.

Was doing some research for a small group leader at GCC for summer student mission for 2004. Looking at things that fit his criteria as well as being strategic, progressive (preparing his team for 2005) and taking care of logistics (meals, housing, etc.). Found some very cool other sites as well:

K - this one is for you. Destination Summit - Part of New Tribes Mission - specific to reaching the unreached.
