This course is an Introduction to Missions . It was first published in 1999 and later updated in 2005 and 2011. This new 2018 edition is still recognizable, although it was not only updated, but modernized too. You are about to embark on a missionary journey. This course may eventually lead you to a real missions trip. It may be your first, or maybe you have already travelled abroad for missionary purposes. In both cases you will learn new things: for the newcomer it will be theory that may develop into practical experience. And you, who have already been there , will learn things that you can relate to former experience.
