Unreached and Waiting  

The horizon that indigenous missionaries saw evoked the unknown as they approached villagers who had yet to hear the gospel in Burma (Myanmar). Whether by boat, motorcycle or on foot, native missionaries travel to remote, jungle mountains to bring food, equipment for water wells and the message of Christ's salvation. The ministry director said that sometimes as many as 200 people from various villages attend three-day gospel events where lunch and dinner are served at a cost of about $200 per day. "Sometimes we kill a pig, sometimes a cow, and we feed them," the director said. "In some places there are no believers, so our missionaries stay there for one to three nights to share the gospel, and then they come back. If we have new believers, they follow up and help to meet their needs."

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).
