“What You Should Know Before You Go” was originally written in 1983 and updated in 2001. Written by Robert and Evangeline Rodenbush, the book has been a go-to resource for church groups and individuals planning to serve overseas in missions as part of a short-term trip or a longer commitment.
The book provides an overview of practical steps to take when preparing to travel overseas. The book covers numerous topics including passports, finances, ethics, and logistics. It also contains supplemental material on how to speak through an interpreter and preaching in an overseas environment.
Rev. and Mrs. Rodenbush wrote the book based on their experiences serving as missionaries in West Africa, leading the short-term missions programs of Global Missions, and serving as Regional Directors for Europe and the Middle East.
This book will help ensure any missions trip is productive, rewarding, and enjoyable.
