Five Steps to Traveling with Shalom
In Shalom we believe that a relationship with God is at the core of
who we are capable of being as viable well-balanced citizens on earth. To that end, faith in Jesus Christ has opened the door into a new a world for all who travel under the banner of our ministry. Ones profession of faith is a fundamental
requirement for those who wish to collaborate with our efforts in change the world. Admittedly, there are many people who believe that Jesus existed but if we carefully look at John 3:16 the apostle was clear and emphatic in stating that
whosoever believeth in Him would not perish… so we have to get past Christ being a historical figure and move toward placing our faith and trust in His finished work.
This all important document is integral in opening up the world to you
as a Shalom traveler. Hence the securing of one’s passport creates a possible entry point for us to share the message of Christ in other nations. The process is simple and the cost is reasonable, so please take a moment to go
3 Shalom Application and Documentation:
Shalom has an application process that each
missionary will have to complete, which encompasses data like, emergency contact information, statement of testimony and pastoral recommendation. This administrative detail is necessary in our commitment to secure the proper insurances and
planning in case of natural disasters or other unforeseen events that may require team extraction and movement to an adequate safety zone. Click here to download Shalom traveler application
There are nations that require inoculation so as to take preventative measures
in protecting the missionary from diseases that may be prevalent in certain areas. We have had very little physical harm or illness among our missionaries in part because of effectual prayer and preparation through proper inoculations required for travel.
Please see the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention
website for inoculation requirements for the region you intend to travel.
5 Preparation Shalom Institute:
All missionaries who travel under the banner of Shalom undergo
a minimum 4 hour block of instruction detailing the mission, the physical conditions under which the missionary will work, and other physical and spiritual matters that should be prayerfully considered before travel. The training dates are typically 30
days prior to one of our trips, and this comprehensive instruction will be given by a trained authorized Shalom staffer or someone with commensurate experience.
