    16. 16. Definition Time: Irie: (I-ree) adj., a: a Jamaican term meaning “everything is ok”, or “no problem.” b: Often used as a term of reassurance when things aren’t going like we thought.
    17. 17. The Three-Crisis Rule “ When traveling in a mission team internationally, the team should always keep the 3-crisis rule in mind. The rule is simply this: Assume that three things for each individual will go wrong no matter how well we plan. Adopt the attitude that contingencies will arise. Who knows what they will be? Someone may become ill. The bus may break down or the rooms at the hotel may have been given away. When you begin the trip with this attitude, you are preparing to be flexible as well as facing the fact that you cannot always be in control or trust your own strength. Encourage one another to practice the mental attitude of accepting both the minor and major changes in plans that inevitably occur with foreign travel. If nothing goes “wrong” with your team, fine. But you will have missed some rewarding opportunities to see the Lord work. Difficulties give you the opportunity to discover your inner resolve. And in the face of adversity, the hidden strengths and talents that emerge in some can surprise the team.”

It is appropriate on the last day at the work site to give things such as Bibles, shoes, t-shirts, small gifts All gifts for children and staff must be given through the administration at the various sites. Due to special diets/restrictions, do not give candy or sweets to the children

    33. 33. Speaking of Clothing <ul><li>Sunday Best- We are guests in our host’s place of worship </li></ul><ul><li>Remember that we are always examples of who Jesus wants us to be- even on free days </li></ul>
    34. 34. Team Leader Responsibilities <ul><li>All team members are required to attend yearly team training </li></ul><ul><li>If you need help, please let the MJ office know </li></ul><ul><li>Registrations and Deposits- also known as… </li></ul>
    35. 35. Paperwork Things we need everyone to turn into the MJ office An email will be sent approx 2 weeks prior to due date Final payments per confirmation letter Due by Nov 15th Medical Forms With a copy of Passport & Insurance Card Registration Form (paper copy) Copy of Minor Authorization Form Sept 13 $150 Oct 13 $550 Deposits per confirmation letter With Roommates Assigned Electronic Spreadsheet due as soon as possible
    36. 36. Policy Statement <ul><li>Remember that I am a guest working at the invitation of the various sites. If bare arms, shirtless backs or exposed legs offend my hosts, I’ll cover them. If they offer me goat meat stew, I’ll try it! I’ll remember the missionaries prayer: “Where You lead me, I will follow; what You feed me, I will swallow. </li></ul><ul><li>Remember that we have come to learn, not to teach. I may run across procedures that I feel are inefficient, or attitudes that I find close-minded. I’ll resist the temptation to inform our hosts about “how to do things.” I’ll be open to learning other people’s methods and ideas. </li></ul><ul><li>Respect the host’s view of Christianity. I recognize that Christianity has many faces throughout the world, and that the purpose of this trip is to witness and experience faith lived out in a new setting. </li></ul><ul><li>Develop and maintain a servant attitude toward all nationals and my teammates. </li></ul><ul><li>Respect my team leaders and their decisions </li></ul><ul><li>Refrain from gossip. I may be surprised at how each person will blossom when freed from the concern that others may be passing judgment. </li></ul>
    37. 37. 7. Refrain from complaining. I know that travel can present numerous unexpected and undesired circumstances, but the rewards of conquering such circumstances are innumerable. Instead of whining and complaining, I’ll be creative and supportive. 8. Respect the work that is going on in the country with the particular church, agency, or person(s) that we are working with. I realize that our team is here for just a short while, but that those with whom we work are here for the long term. I will respect their knowledge, insights and instructions. 9. Refrain from negative political comments or hostile discussions concerning out host country, their culture or their politics. 10. Remember not to be exclusive in my relationships. If my sweetheart or spouse is on the team, we will make every effort to interact with all members of the team, not just one another. If I am attracted to a teammate, I will not attempt to pursue an exclusive relationship until after we return home. 11. Refrain from any activity that could be construed as romantic interest toward a National. I realize certain activities that seem innocuous in my own culture may seem inappropriate in others.
    38. 38. Safety <ul><li>Be aware of the location of the first aid kit and who on our team has been trained in first aid and CPR. </li></ul><ul><li>Be aware of the weather conditions and if you and your teammates have been drinking enough water. When in doubt, drink more. </li></ul><ul><li>Be completely aware of your surroundings while working. Including the location of your teammates. </li></ul><ul><li>Always be aware of the presence of any of the children. Keep them an appropriate distance from the actual work. </li></ul><ul><li>Always unplug any power equipment, even if only for a brief moment between uses so the children don’t pick it up and run it. </li></ul><ul><li>Use common sense. </li></ul><ul><li>Seek assistance, when you think there’s even a slight chance that you might need it. It is better to duplicate effort than it is to get hurt. </li></ul><ul><li>When in doubt, ask a question. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t do what you’re not comfortable with. </li></ul><ul><li>While having fun on the site is an asset, cutting up on the site is a liability. </li></ul>
