re: tales of missing delivered packages (update Amazon is the tits) - anc
I'll post an update to my dilemma from last week. Bought from a "Marketplace" seller. Item was delivered but it was a step down from what I ordered. Seller offered refund if I shipped it back, but shipping was $96. Amazon gave me two choices: (1) They would send me a pre-paid shipping lab...

Alternative: Spend $60,000 to go to language school at a missionary training center in Tijuana? In all seriousness, Rosetta Stone is the best program out there for that type of learning. ...

re: Building a house - looking for some advice - anc
Our builder wanted $5000 on a $375k house, so 1-2% is about right. We had a budget to hit the $375k. So much for flooring, so much for appliances, lighting, etc. We went under on flooring and over on lighting. When all was said and done, we ended up just over budget (I think about $381k) and bec...

[quote]They are going to the training, school, whatever you call it. They have spoken at their church and raised a lot of money from the people there so I suppose they do support it.

[quote]What are the circumstances this would happen? [/quote] Very common. I'd say more than half of the people that go to such schools end up not being placed. Sometimes they get office work, sometimes they get support work. The fact that neither went to seminary would cause me not to supp...

[quote]For what success rate?[/quote] This is the problem of most mission work. How do you define success? Because "converting lost souls" isn't likely to happen. I can get a hungry villager to say anything or listen to me talk for an hour about anything for a loaf of bread for his family. ...

[quote]You ask them what they'll be doing and they say they don't know, that's why they're going to the school. [/quote] That's what stood out to me.

[quote]Look up Radius International, that's the program [/quote] Radius is a fine program for this. The point is that your sister and her husband may not be receiving a true call for this type of work. The fact that you are questioning it may in fact be God's way of telling them that it isn't. ...

[quote]I agree with you on short term mission work being a good option. My wife and I go on a short term trip each year with our Church (Baptist).

I say this as a Christian. WAY TOO MANY people are doing this "on a whim." I just had some friends that came back from South America after two years. They sold everything they owned and now they are back. Now, this isn't popular with the megachurch and Baptist crowd that I live around, but the...
