OPEN Network Gathering in Istanbul and Big Updates

Patrick Lai and the OPEN Network will be holding its second HUDDLE of the year this coming September 10-13, in Istanbul. The OPEN Network is a network of tentmakers/BAM practitioners. We have learned that though many of us are working with mission organizations, we have problems that are uniquely ours. Meeting together, sharpening and sharing with one another enables us to "build up one another." These meetings are open only to servants of Jesus who are living and working in the 10/40 Window.

Though this information may not pertain to yourself, it is being sent to you as you are known to have friends who are living and working in the 10/40 Window. To get the word out, it would be encouraging for you to pass this information on to those you know who might benefit from it. For more information write to or check our website; http://www.opennetworkers.net/ or write Laura.Meller@travelbag.org OPEN Huddle Istanbul, September 10-13, 2009 - Speakers:
  • Julyan: former tentmaker in Turkey now gives leadership to an international agency will bring the devotions.
  • Patrick Lai, owner of 2 small profitable businesses in SE Asia, who’s team has planted 2 churches and 2 fellowships of MBBs will be sharing on new mission paradigms.

The location of the meeting will be revealed after you register. Register on line at http://www.opennetworkers.net/ or write Laura.Meller@travelbag.org. Rejoice as several major events have happened this past year within the OPEN Network.

  • We have received some funding which will enable us to expand our coaching of teams around the 10/40 Window.
  • Several wholesalers in North America have expressed more than interest in marketing our goods and services and one has committed to taking our products and marketing those that meet his standards.
  • Internships have expanded to include China, Malaysia and India.
  • Huddles were held in Bangkok, Istanbul and Dubai.
  • We are forging new relationships with tentmaking/BAM trainers in several countries who may guide workers to our businesses.
  • There are several recent articles on tentmaking/BAM on the OPEN website, go to “resources.”
  • Opening an on-line store/website for our goods and services.
  • OPEN Expos planned in the USA to train business people in coaching tentmakers/BAMers and link them to OPEN workers in need of their skills or coaching.
