pioneer in the area of international student reentry and served as the national director of International Student Ministry Department of InterVarsity/USA

We live in an exciting time! More and more students go abroad to do (part of their) studies there; Europe being the number one destination at the moment. This gives us amazing opportunities to reach them with the gospel. Many Chinese students are very open to connect with local Christians and learn more about Christianity. Some of them come to faith in Christ. But how can we help them when they return to their home country which is so different? Debbie D. Philip has done extensive research in this field and has now written a very helpful and practical book. I highly recommend it to anyone who is involved in ministry and encounters Chinese students.

IFES International Student Ministry coordinator for Netherlands and Europe

Philip’s knowledge of China and its people shines a light on the cultural factors that create dis¬sonance for Chinese returnees. Her in-depth interviews with returnees, including stories of both thriving and waning faith, richly illustrate the challenges that Chinese returnees face. Philip pro¬vides cogent analysis of those interviews, as well as very practical suggestions to help Chinese return home well. This book will enable the reader to reach Chinese international students with the greater goal in mind: to see Chinese returnees successfully transplanted back to China, thriving in their faith and serving the Chinese church.

Engaging the Church in Missionary Mobilization

What would it look like if your church really took the last words of Jesus seriously? The Great Commission was not just a suggestion by our Lord, but an imperative mandate given to his followers. Missionary sending agencies are deploying workers to the field, but many of them come from disengaged churches that are not producing well-equipped disciples. We need a fully integrated global supply chain—a pipeline—that has disciples as the precious commodity, as well as an effective infrastructure to distribute and replicate them around the globe. Pipeline seeks to re-engage the church in mobilizing the next generation of workers for the harvest. This is a collaboration of forty different authors from churches, agencies, and cross-cultural servants. As people in distant places wait for a messenger of hope and salvation, will your church venture into the pipeline?

Comprehensive in scope and replete with firsthand accounts of how people have responded to the call of missions, Pipeline is both informative and inspirational. Here, compiled in one volume for the first time, is the most practical mission mobilization wisdom from a broad range of “in the trenches” mission mobilizers that can be found.

Public health, when threatened not by Obamacare but by exposure to infectious diseases, natural disasters or chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN) agents, is an area where members of Congress have been able to build bipartisanship.

Continuing such cross-party work will be tantamount to ensuring Americans are protected against these increasing and evolving threats, said members of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee during a Jan. 17 hearing that kickstarted the reauthorization process for the Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Act (PAHPA). Many of the law’s provisions are set to expire in September.

“I look forward to a timely, bipartisan reauthorization of this crucial legislation to ensure we are prepared to respond to natural disasters like hurricanes, and protect Americans against bioterror attacks and infectious disease outbreaks, like the Zika virus or a pandemic influenza,” said U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), chairman of the HELP Committee.

Several of the committee’s members have been involved from the start in crafting the national legislation designed to protect public health from such threats.

Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) introduced both Senate versions of PAHPA; the original bill, S. 3678, which became law in 2006, and the Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Reauthorization Act (PAHPRA) of 2013, S. 242, which became law that same year.

“This is the first of two hearings we plan to have on this topic,” said Sen. Burr, who chaired the Wednesday hearing. The next one is scheduled for Jan. 23. He noted the critical importance of both hearings as lawmakers undertake a revamp of PAHPA, particularly because CBRN and other threats, he said, “jeopardize the health of all Americans.”

“Our bipartisan work has resulted in strong partnerships with our states and local counterparts, created greater certainty and accountability to bring forward medical countermeasures, and established a clear strategy with which we can combat the full range of public health threats we face today and those we may encounter in the future,” Burr said during his opening remarks.

“But despite this progress, we’re not fully prepared,” he said, adding that gaps have left the United States vulnerable to terrorists and natural threats.

“I want to make clear to the committee that this is a reauthorization of a national security bill,” Burr said, even though the federal agencies that oversee public health are funded by non-defense monies.
