Many churches that partner with us have developed their own training for short-term teams that is specific to the nature of their team and their projects. Here are some additional resources that previous short-term teams have found helpful in preparing them to serve in Nairobi:
"Toxic Charity”- Robert D. Lupton
"When Helping Hurts”- Steve Corbett & Brian Fikkert
"Walking With the Poor”- Bryant Myers
"More Than Good Intentions"- Dean Karlan & Jacob Appel
"From Foreign to Familiar”- Sarah A. Lanier
Here is a great article to share with your team that offers a good perspective about short-term missions: Things No One Tells You About Going on Short-Term Mission Trips _ RELEVANT Magazine.pdf
You can contact Linda Brock at CMF (firstname.lastname@example.org) about CHE (Community Health Evangelism) training designed for short-term teams.
Additionally, an essential component of a successful short-term missions trip is the debriefing time upon return to the U.S. Please email us at email@example.com if you would like some resources to assist you with debriefing.
Please share with us the resources that have been helpful to your team so that we may share it with others!
