What is a Luke 10 Exploration Trip?
Luke 10 Exploration Trips take place when teams who include the four types of participants travel together to a location in which Friends are exploring the possibility of launching a new mission field. These teams get their cues from Luke 10 and use EFM’s CAN GO Criteria to evaluate the experiences they are having on the trip. This same criteria is used when they return home and report to the Luke 10 Think Tanks, determining whether this potential site is a “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” in regard to further exploration or launching a new mission field in the visited location.
What are the Luke 10 Trip Destinations?
EFM currently has 11 sites/peoples in mind for exploration for possible new fields. Plans are being made for Luke 10 Trips to 10 of the sites by 10 different planning and traveling teams by the end of 2022! Then follow up visits will be made over the coming months or years as appropriate.
