Hunger Games  

Children from an Ashaninka village in the Peruvian foothills of the Andes jostle for food prepared by Segadores (Harvesters), an indigenous Christian ministry. In one village, every Sunday 80 Ashaninka children show up for Bible study. The ministry then provides breakfast for them in spite of scant resources, with a team of Ashaninka volunteer teachers helping to keep the program self-sustaining. At another village, two of the ministry director's disciples join her to teach the Bible at a primary school two times a week. "We travel in the back of a cargo truck," she said. "There's no transportation for going back, so often we have to walk three hours." Segadores missionaries live by faith, trusting God to meet their needs. An indigenous missionary can be supported for $50 a month.

Christian Aid Mission is a 60-year-old non-profit organization that equips native missionaries around the world. We serve as a non-denominational foreign mission board that assists more than 500 ministries overseas with tens of thousands of indigenous or native missionaries in the field. These ministries are currently engaging more than 1,000 unreached people groups in more than 100 countries around the world. Our mission is to establish a witness for our Lord in every tribe and nation (Matthew 24:14) by assisting highly effective native missionaries and our focus is on reaching the unreached for Christ in areas in the world where there is no witness for Christ, where foreign missionaries are not allowed, or where Christians suffer because of poverty or persecution. Christian Aid Mission is generally considered to be the first U.S. organization to assist and promote native missionaries overseas. Since 1997, Christian Aid has been a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA).
