RMI believes that in order for a team to have a successful trip they must have adequate cultural, spiritual, and practical orientation and preparation. RMI provides a number of resources for them to be well prepared for your trip. This is key for successful Short Term Mission trips.
Team Training and Orientation Manual: RMI's Team Training Manual for both leaders and team members is an amazing collection of materials designed to help team members be as prepared as possible. This manual is comprehensive and will provide such things as cross-cultural training and tips, Haitian history, geography and practical tips and information needed for a successful trip. It is required for all team members to go through this 7 session program. (Six sessions are to be studied together before the team's trip and the seventh session is an important debriefing after the team returns home.)
Team Leaders, please do this at least 4 months prior to your trip.
There are two groups of materials:
One-Time Resources - (Total cost, $82) These should be bought once and passed on from team to team.
Pre-Trip Consumables - Each team member is required to have a manual and a devotional.
The team should meet together for 2 hours or so once a week for 6 weeks. The materials dovetail and are woven together in such a way that all of the materials are used during each session. Meeting weekly not only enables a team to study the material but also builds team unity and spiritual oneness as well as provides time for planning ministry.

"The training manual had many key points in it and I was impressed how intricately it was designed to inform us with everything we need to know about the trip."
