Option 1: The Guest Evangelists:
Underwrite the cost of travel to and from their
assigned crusade site, hotel, food, visa, medical, insurance, and such other expenses must
be anticipated, and
Provide such equipment as may be necessary to
utilize evangelistic graphics.

than student-evangelists) will raise
$1,000 to be spent for the campaign expenses determined in
consultation with local church leaders,
The Quiet Hour receipt(s) indicating how the $1,000 was
will, in post-campaign reports, refer
to both the Carolina Conference and The Quiet Hour
as campaign co-sponsors, and
understands that The Quiet Hour
prefers that the guest-evangelists they sponsor invite other team
members to go who may provide health or family-life talks or
otherwise assist in the campaign.
Duration: While the total
number of meetings and number of meetings per week as well as the overall duration of the
series is open for discussion and modification, the initial suggestion will be two weeks
of meetings, including three weekends, which begin on a Friday night and conclude on a
Saturday night. These sixteen nights, plus the three Sabbath morning messages, make
a total of 19 presentations.
Topics: While each evangelist is
free to deliver a series of their own design, a suggested order of
topics is included on each campaign website.
The sponsoring church organization will download, print and distribute
to each campaign site a supply of decision cards, the contents of which
are written into the calls in the EZ-2-PREACH sermon notes. The host
fields that need Decision Cards in a language that is not provided
should download the English version of the
Decision Cards in Word
Perfect format here, translate the cards, and send the file back to
Elder Folkenberg (Send e-mail...) as an attached file. He will covert the
file to Adobe Acrobat format and make it available to others.
All who have been accepted as guest evangelists will be provided two CDs. One
CD has a set of EZ-2-PREACH evangelistic sermon notes (in Adobe Acrobat format)
and the other CD has matching PowerPoint presentations. The sermon
notes included imbedded color pictures which match the pictures being
projected by the PowerPoint presentation. To facilitate the use of
the notes, we urge that the sermon notes be printed on white,
pre-punched paper, on only one side of the paper.
Lorraine Hansen, who is gifted in computer education and preached one of

The North American Division ASI is developing a
Multi-language, soul-winning tool, utilizing DVD technology with graphics, audio sound tracks or optional
sermon notes for individual presentation. The
graphics may be shown on a standard television set or video projector.
Information regarding the availability and financial terms of this equipment can be
secured from ASI representative in the North American Division (by calling 301-680-6000).
Appeal Songs: Regardless of
whether or not it is used, the text for most sermons includes an appeal
song. Music with English and Spanish words songs in Acrobat (.pdf)
format may be downloaded here. Highlight the language of your choice.
Guest evangelists are free to use, not use, or shuffle the appeal songs
as each sees fit.
Airline tickets: Each
individual is responsible for purchasing his/her own airline tickets.
The office of Global Evangelism has requested Mrs. Julia Reid (former
director of the G C Travel Agency) to secure airline contracts in order
to provide discounted tickets. In order to compare prices we
suggest campaign participants call Mrs. Julia Reid at (240)

travel dates, please go to the specific campaign website.
Visas: Each guest evangelist MUST have his/her on valid
passport and secure such single or multiple-entry visas as may be required
by each country to be visited. The visa application forms for most
countries can be downloaded from the Internet at:
Diana Jo Beeler of the The General Conference TRIPS office has
graciously agreed to secure visas for those going on Global-Evangelism
Travelers should call her
Confirm how many applications
and pictures need to be completed and sent to her (always by FedEx).
Consult about whether a single
or multiple-entry visa may be required, and whether a tourist of
business visa is necessary, and
Inquire about the amount of the
check that needs to be included with each submission. The charge
for each visa is normally on the website mentioned above but the courier
fee charged (for delivery of the passport to the embassy and subsequent
pickup of the passport and returning it by FedEx) is only $15 per visa.
E-mail inquiries may also be

for any other countries to be visited during the trip, and 2) Begin the
application process AT LEAST two months prior the date of
Water: It is important for
every guest to assume that tap water is not potable. Only drink
purified water. Bottled drinking water is normally available and guests
may want to purchase a hand-held water-purification system at your local
camping store to purify tap water.
Food that is cooked or
peeled is normally safe. Beware of salads and ice in your drinks.
is still likely in spite of one being careful. What to do, then,
when it hits. Anticipate this before leaving and consult with your
physician and bring the medication he/she recommends. I'm not a doctor
so I will not give you medical advice. But I will tell you what I
have done under very "trying" situations.
(1) I am careful what I eat and drink, and (2) I listen to my body. If know from
experience it is easier (and MUCH more comfortable) to stop the problem before it becomes disrupting
to my work. So, as soon as I fell "trouble" is coming I will take one or more of the following
medications: a) Imodium (treats the symptoms, but provides welcome
relief), and/or b) one of two antibiotics prescribed by my physician:
Cipro (one 250 mg. pill in the morning and the other in the
evening), or Avelox (one 400 mg pill per day).
PLEASE, don't go on a trip without bringing
Imodium AND either of these antibiotics with you!
So, consult your physician before you
leave on your trip and secure such medication as he/she recommends,
since you are unlikely to find the same medication sold under the same
name in another country.
Malarial prophylactics: Malaria is endemic to
most of the tropical areas of the world. Please consult your physician and/or your
area public-health department about taking medication to help prevent
this disease. For many years Larium (or Lariam) was the medication
recommended by the General Conference Health Department for their
traveling staff. Recently a new mediation has been placed on the North
which was recommended to me by County Health Department. It is
called "Malarone." If you are going to an area in which
Malaria is known, please secure and take the medication they recommend.
Common sense also dictates that the visitor utilize mosquito repellant,
a step which protects one against Malaria (and other mosquito-borne
Inoculations: While most governments do
not vaccinations (other than Yellow Fever), general principles I recommend
that travelers secure some of the readily-available vaccinations such
as: Yellow Fever, Hepatitis A, and Hepatitis B, Typhoid, Meningitis, and

Limited insurance coverage will be secured ONLY for
those participants who are listed on
the campaign website. Coverage will begin on the departure date
and continue for 21 days--sufficient to travel, conduct the
series of meetings and return home. Global-Evangelism will submit

NOT need to be completed. To see the coverage provided select application
