Any farmer will tell you that preparing a new field for planting is hard work. The same is true when planting the seed of the gospel in an un-reached people group. But with faithful perseverance the planting will expand. The gospel seed will permeate the people group’s culture, and the church will begin healthy reproduction…..That’s our goal” – Advancing Native Missions
I got to know about this organization through a sponsored post on Facebook (later we would be exploring the options of sponsoring your posts on Facebook) and I got deeply interested as this is one area I’m passionate about.
For them they serve 250 indigenous mission partners with over 8,500 native missionaries working in 80 countries.
These native missionaries are engaging more than 450 of these un-reached people groups and are reaching out to more all the time.
ANM believes that Native missionaries already know the language and culture of the people they serve, so it won’t be a challenge reaching out in their individual communities. The native missionaries are already accustomed to the physical climate, environment, and political situation. Because their standard of living is comparable to those they serve, often vastly different from that of a foreign missionary, they are able to live and minister on a fraction of the resources. Since it doesn’t take them years to learn the language and culture, they can begin their work after minimal training and preparation. Finally, because they are working among their own family, friends, and neighbors, they are committed for the long-term work of missionary endeavor.
This is their goal,to reach out to the unsaved in local communities through their native missionaries.
