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 just wanted to take a moment to say thank you, for such wonderful weekly articles. I look forward to each one, as it helps me to view beyond my own thoughts/circumstances enabling transformed and focused prayers outwardly to what God is doing around the world. It helps me to think outside of my little, local box, to see as God sees that there is more at stake than my problems. These articles and this ministry are a simple grace that is calling us to pray together as one body in Jesus Christ. Again thank you!

Terrorists Strike Near Mission Field

April 03, 2013

In a recent report to Christian Aid Mission, Gabriel Barau, ministry leader of Missionary Crusaders Ministries in Nigeria, reports:

“About five days ago, very close to one of our fields, 30 gun men walked into the town, destroyed the police station, released more than 100 prisoners, and killed 64 persons instantly. That is the tension we have in the northeast every day. We sincerely need your prayers to raise the funds needed to move our headquarters office to a safe location.”

For more than 20 years, Barau has rented an office headquarters in Adamawa State, site of this most recent deadly attack. Yet the endless barrage of attacks from Islamic terrorist group, Boko Haram, has kept MCM missionaries from using the office. Small and crowded, Barau’s home acts as a temporary shelter for ministry work until funds can be raised to complete construction on a new headquarters in a safer location.

“Every day we live with the threat of death for ourselves, our children, and the staff who lives here with us,” Barau reports.

For 28 years, Barau has worked to share the gospel with unreached tribes in Nigeria, training native missionaries and sending them out to live among the people they are reaching. Today, 183 workers are planting churches and discipling converts. Many of their mission fields are located in the country’s Muslim northern region, where the majority of Boko Haram attacks have occurred.

Despite the danger of being attacked by the terrorists, MCM workers are committed to remaining at their mission fields. Living by faith, they are in need of steady monthly support and school fees for their children.

Monthly sponsorships are available for MCM missionaries through Christian Aid Mission, and start at $50.

Construction of a new headquarters in a safer, more centralized location has begun on a piece of land provided by Christian Aid Mission. Approximately $80,000 is needed to complete and furnish the simple offices and staff housing. Smaller donations toward this need are always welcomed and can be used to build in stages.
