(Hope it's up and running by the time you get this. If not already,

- 2003 KIDS AROUND THE WORLD CALENDAR -- This beautiful wall hanging
calendar is full of photographs and short narratives about kids
throughout the world. Each month, religious holidays celebrated by the
people where these kids live are highlighted and contrasted in a mini-
Bible study or devotional so you and your children can learn to pray
more effectively for them. US$7.50 each (price breaks for ordering 10
or more, or 50 or more). To order, call 303-730-4170 or purchase online
at http://www.calebproject.org/2003Cal.asp .
- ALTERNATIVE FOR MONEY TRANSFER -- There are a number of money
transfer sites on the internet. PayPal is the largest, but some people
have had issues with them. CitiBank has an online money transfer
service called c2it, and some Brigada members are liking what they find
there. There are limits to how much money you can transfer ($500/day
and $1000/4 days), but transfers between American based accounts (bank
accounts or credit card accounts) are without fee. Transfers to
international locations, including currency exchange, are a flat
$10.00. They're on the web at
http://www.c2it.com . Contact them toll-free from the USA or via
Net2Phone from elsewhere at 1-800/200-3881. They accept collect
international calls 24/7 at 904/954-7222. For security reasons, they do
not transact any business by email. (Thanks David!)
- MISSIONARY TRAINING CAMP -- Elijah Company will conduct another camp
from January 30 - February 2, 2003 in North Carolina. In this intensive
training, a staff of experienced missionaries present issues and steps
dealing with character, spiritual warfare, relationships, faith, and
direction. A person leaves with impartation to fervently pursue a
missions call, either short term or long. Church missions leaders
benefit by learning what people need to go through to prepare and how
they could best assist. Three other 2003 camps include Pennsylvania,
Virginia and southern Spain. For information, contact Elijah Company
<email@example.com>, or call (757) 474-2054. See the web page at
