How about this one?
12. KEEP UP YOUR REGULAR GIVING FOR THE WHOLE TIME AWAY.
There will be many temptations while you travel to give up the normal disciplines. One of them will be your generosity to others. You will be tempted to think about how to save and spend the money on yourself. But how powerful it would be if you resisted?
Let's say that while you were at home, you gave 10% of your earnings to the local church, to mission and to the poor. My tip: keep giving that same amount to your local church etc while you are away. And give even more to people and mission in the countries you visit too. This, of course, will require pre-planning, and deep discipline.
Any other late thoughts?
