John & Shelley

country: USA, travel globally to Muslim world 
organization:    Frontiers 
focus: training pastors & missionaries

My work involved four areas of focus: pastoral care of
missionaries; leadership development and discipleship
of national leaders; fundraising for Asian Child Rescue
Ministries in support of schools for the poor in
Mauritania, orphaned children in Ethiopia, a war widows
job training program in Afghanistan; special assignments
in Brazil to help churches train their missionaries for
service in the Muslim world. The past year has seen
tremendous political and social upheaval in N Africa and
the Middle East. Our team in W Sahara has faced stoning
and death threats but in the midst of this tension they
have seen the first four converts among the Saharawi people.
