Labor of Love  

A pastor in Central Java Province, Indonesia has become self-sustaining through a microenterprise project of raising rabbits. Before obtaining such loans, 125 pastors and other Christians on the island did not have enough income to provide for their families' needs, including their children's schooling, or to sustain their ministries, the director of the ministry that provides them said. "We were able to not only give them loans but also to give them business training, basic Bible teaching, mentoring and encouragment," he said. About 70 percent of those who received loans have repaid them. Some pastors have been able to share the gospel through their businesses.

"We also hope their profits will increase so they can expand their ministries."

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).
