Travel with Impact
This will be the last MMM for this school year. As you read this, I
will be landing (joined with my wife and five faculty members from across the
U.S.) in a large, closed country in Southeast Asia. Our objective is to open
up opportunities for ministry now and in the future as these faculty have
the opportunity to lecture in major universities. Please pray for us.
International lecture trips are just one way that we help faculty to use
their travel overseas to further the cause of the Gospel. There are several
other ways you could help, as well. I have asked our International Ministry
Coordinator, Dave Wiley, to share some other ways with you...

As CLM expands its ministry activities to a growing number of countries throughout the world, there are several ways in which U.S. professors can be involved.
The first is to let us know of any Christian professors in other countries with whom you have contact.
CLM is particularly interested in establishing a worldwide network of professors in the same academic field to provide encouragement and mentoring, and to encourage joint-research projects that relate that academic field to a Christian worldview.
The second is to let us know when you're traveling to another country for a conference or other professional reasons.
For professors who have been involved with CLM, have ministry experience, and who receive a recommendation from a CLM field staff member, we can contact Crusade campus staff in the area in which you will be traveling and offer your services to speak to student and faculty meetings.
The third is to participate in a CLM-sponsored international ministry trip. We have a number of campus locations throughout the world which would welcome a team of U.S. Christian professors coming in to speak and minister.
Although an international ministry trip does not require previous experience, it does require some preparation on your part, including writing a brief personal testimony, preparing lectures that present your academic field from a Christian worldview, and learning how to communicate the gospel one-on-one. You will also have the opportunity to trust the Lord to provide the funding for your trip, but CLM staff will work with you on each of these items.
The fourth would be to arrange a sabbatical at a strategic university or in a strategic country.
For further information, you are encouraged to contact Dave Wiley, CLM Director of International Operations. Phone: 972-713-7130. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
