Approach to the Web Site

The authors of Operation World desire to see this work promote prayer among the people of God and serve as a global reference work for church and mission groups.

We seek to maximize the impact of Operation World, in many forms, including book, CD-ROM and Web site. In order to protect Operation World from abuse, we copyright the work, giving generous permission for Christian ministry uses.

This is our first attempt at putting significant Operation World content onto the Web. We are delighted to be able to do this, and we want to cautiously expand the content and functionality of this site, learning as we go along. Because the Web is a relatively uncontrollable media, we do not intend to put the entire contents of the Operation World book onto the Web.

We are committed to an on-going process of soliciting and evaluating feedback, corrections and updates. We carefully review all feedback, editing as needed, authorizing changes, and publicly posting approved changes on this web site.

We are continuously expanding and enhancing the Operation World ministry, including translations of the book into additional languages, additions to the Web site, and developing new Operation World-related prayer resources.
