Christian workers in the Philippines rely on motorcycles to get them to remote jungle villages where the name of Christ is not known. A ministry native to the Philippines not only provides motorcycles to evangelists but teaches them how to maintain them. "If they break down in the mountains, you can't push it down to the lowlands for repairs," the indigenous ministry director said. "You have to be trained to do it yourself. In fact, we've even remodeled some motorcycles to become stronger." The ministry sends native missionaries to live in tribal communities where they set up social and community projects, teach the Bible chronologically, translate Scripture into local dialects and train leaders to make disciples.

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).
