Six Decades of Indigenous Missionary Success

After recent scandals, I have become skeptical of the native missionary movement. I have been supporting native missionaries for decades now, but these scandals have really burnt my trust. Thank you for addressing trust and accountability in Prayerline letter.

I pray that every need will be met. Our God is able to multiply every gift. Praise His wonderful Name.

A New Approach: Utilizing Native Missionaries

1. Christian Aid seeks to establish a witness for our Lord in every tongue, tribe and nation (Rev. 5:9) and to encourage and strengthen evangelical Christian witness in countries where Christians are persecuted or few in number.

2. Christian Aid locates, evaluates and sends financial help to indigenous evangelical ministries which are serving the Lord primarily in countries closed to foreign missionaries.

3. Christian Aid continually appraises indigenous mission groups, examines their doctrinal statements, and evaluates the fruits of their ministries. We make sure they are accountable and provide financial statements regularly.

4. Christian Aid encourages American Christians to help these indigenous missions evangelize their own people. As we receive offerings from U. S. Christians, we send them to indigenous missionary ministries in poorer countries. Then they send out native missionaries, who are getting the job done at a fraction of the cost of traditional missions.
