  • Hi there, I am new to Oscar Active, but I am wondering if anyone would be willing to take a few minutes to help with some research. We are looking into specific gaps and ‘pain points’ around the issues of training and support for cross-cultural workers (pre-field, on-field or post-field) as well as their senders and supporters. We are especially interested to see if Covid has changed anything in this regard.Here is a link to our survey – please fill out yourself and forward to anyone else you can think of who fits these categories.

  • Advice needed on Vehicle Purchase for Southern Africa
    A UK church have raised £40k to fund the purchase of a vehicle for a mission partner in Southern Africa and are looking to purchase outside country and ship in. There are many companies that do this, but they would welcome any advice from folk that have maybe done this before. Please reply here or to
    • We (Zambesi Mission) have looked at shipping vehicles to Malawi before, but there is usually a 30% import duty on imported vehicles. So you would pay the UK price and then the shipping cost and 30% duty on top. Other Southern African countries may be different, but you should compare the cost of purchasing in country.

  • Hi there. I'm IT director for Wycliffe Bible Translators. Do any other mission organisations use DonorHub from TntWare ( to upload their financial information so their members/mission partners can view the gifts they've seen through TntConnect or DonorManager or other similar tools? If so, can you let me know so I can ask more about how you're finding using it.
    • Following.

      I think many agencies are looking for a solution.

      We use donormanager, but only for contacts details for personal use.
      Thanks for asking the question Paul. Maybe someone will have found an answer.
  • Personal Maths Tutor for MKs
    I have taught maths (and philosophy) for the last 20 years at my local school, and recently have started distance-teaching (via Zoom with a missionary family) at secondary school level.
    In my upcoming retirement, it is my vision to be able to teach maths to young people in missionary families where the parents (and local schools?) cannot adequately meet this need.
