Frontline Friday: Camels, taxis, and Gospel Conversations

By iGo Global Staff · July 10, 2015

I can’t believe that we are halfway through. The last few weeks have seemed to really fly by. When first getting here I was excited to step into the work and see how Father had been working. Now that I am involved I am completely in awe and humbled. Amazing things are happening here and He is working. I am also really enjoying the culture. I have ridden a camel, had plenty of hot tea and coffee, taken many taxis, slept in the desert, and overall had a really great time. People here are so enthralled in their culture that…

Rejoice, Remember, and Realize: How to Pray for the Persecuted Church

By iGo Global Staff · July 6, 2015

A timely challenge and some inspiration from iGo staffer, Rachel Partridge to get you focused on this Monday morning.  3 Ways to Pray for the Persecuted Church Rejoice: I’m fully aware of how strange it sounds to say that we should rejoice, and that in our prayers we should praise God for persecution. But when I read the stories of persecuted believers in the New Testament, I see that they rejoice, and that God’s name is made famous through persecution. Peter and the apostles rejoiced that they were counted worthy to suffer for the name of Jesus (Acts 5:41). Paul says that he rejoices…

Frontline Friday: Building Relationships and Sharing Christ in Madrid

By iGo Global Staff · July 3, 2015

God has been doing great things in Madrid! This past week we were Pr-walking through a park and we passed a young woman sitting on a bench by herself. We started Pr-ing for her and sat on a bench nearby. After a couple minutes we felt led to go talk to her, so we went over and started a conversation. She is 22 years old and speaks a tiny bit of English, so we told her we could practice our Spanish and she could practice her English. She was extremely friendly and invited us to sit on the bench next…

Frontline Friday: Park Bench and Tea Salon Conversations in Africa

By iGo Global Staff · June 26, 2015

Summer is definitely in full effect. We just finished our first week of LaunchBox 2015 last night. Pray for the students and these youth groups as they are launched back home to live on mission. We also had a Group Trek (the students from Central Baptist in Crandall, Texas) serve in Vancouver and return. Pray for them as well. Our JSIs are getting acclimated to life on mission in Madrid, and we have a team getting settled in on the front lines in northern Africa. Today’s update is from CB (one of the team leaders on that team). It has…

iGo Training: Don’t just take it from us

By iGo Global Staff · June 23, 2015

So you have most likely seen or heard us make a big deal about our training. That isn’t just a marketing technique. In fact, we are not totally sure it even is a marketing technique. We make a big deal about our training b/c we want to train you for missions. And when I say you I mean you, your youth group, your college group, your church, etc. And when I say for missions I mean for a cross-cultural mission experience, but even bigger than that, I mean for a life on mission. Jesus said that we will BE his…

Frontline Friday: Pick up that walkie-talkie

By iGo Global Staff · June 19, 2015

One Tokyo team returned last week and our Tokyo JSI team returns home today. Three teams were at Base Camp last weekend and flew out earlier this week and are getting settled in and engaging the work. Which means that we don’t always have fresh and amazing stories to share with you when Friday rolls around. But the work goes on and the work still needs your support. Pastor John Piper wrote these words regarding the armor of God in Ephesians 6: “So I do not tire of saying to our church, The number one reason why prayer malfunctions in the hands…

HGPF and The iGosian Summer Reading Club

By iGo Global Staff · June 18, 2015

HGPF This is the acronym that iGosians have come to love, despite the fact that it spells nothing and sounds strange. HGPF has been a central teaching at iGo Base Camps for well over 10 years now. In case you need a refresher course, HGPF comes straight out of Ephesians 4:1-3. The letters stand for Humble, Gentle, Patient, and Forbearing. Paul is instructing the Ephesian church to maintain their Spirit-given unity by engaging each other in these ways in light of the amazing work of Christ (Chapters 1-3). HGPF, like all of the other Base Camp teachings, ties directly into…

Frontline Friday: Sowing Seeds in Japan

By iGo Global Staff · June 12, 2015

Frontline Friday brought you to you by Addi  (one of our JSIs in Japan)  I just want to start out by saying that I have never, before this week, quite experienced how passionate of a Savior we have. How passionately and relentlessly he pursues each and every one of us. This week started out great. The team from Kansas/Nebraska arrived on Tuesday afternoon and we hit the ground running. The team is split up into treks and I am leading my own, the blue trek. I have been given the opportunity to lead around nine people, seven students and two…

All Places (and Peoples) From Here

By iGo Global Staff · June 9, 2015

iGo hasn’t just been sending students to the “ends of the earth” for the last 15 years. Our teams have actually found it. Or at least a place in the middle east that makes that claim. Our focus has always been the least reached/unreached peoples of the world. We point our students to engaging those who have little or no access to the gospel wherever they we can find them. Sometimes that is at the ends of the earth. Sometimes that is in your college dorm. Sometimes that is in a Western European gateway city. And now it also is…

Frontline Friday: Postcards from Tokyo

By iGo Global Staff · June 5, 2015

Cucumbers and Tomatoes is the place to go when you need to hear from iGo. We share updates, highlight iGosian culture,  and dispense inspiration through the C&T blog. But we also have the Flight963 blog in the summer months. At Flight963 you get updates straight from the front lines. Our students serving on 1-week teams write on a postcard at the end of each day. They share thoughts, experiences, and prayer requests. Those postcards are then collected by our wonderful JSIs and entered in as daily updates from the field. Here are some updates from our Kansas/Nebraska Super Summer team…
