Once we receive your email, we will return your email with a list of any information we need you to send, including a pastoral reference, your personal testimony and your vision/goals/hopes for a visit to Iris Global (i.e., what you anticipate doing while here, what gifts or service you have to offer, and what you hope to receive from God while here).
A reference from your pastor should be sent directly to us. This reference needn't be lengthy, but should include his or her reflections on your Christian walk, a description of any significant involvements you have in your church, and brief assessment of your suitability for a short-term missions experience in a setting such as we have here at Iris. Have your pastor visit the main Iris web site at www.irisglobal.org, if he or she isn't familiar with us.
