Goals and Assists  

During a break in soccer action, a player in Egypt shares his experience of Christ with youths of varied religious backgrounds. A ministry based in Egypt has seen hundreds of people come to Christ through its sports programs, such as a boy who recently put his trust in Jesus after soccer players shared their testimonies. "I can see how the Lord came again to shake the community in our village as he shook me personally, making me see Him as the living Christ, not merely the doctrine that I had learned," he said. Another youth said he had an encounter with God for the first time through the program and accepted Jesus into his life. "God united us all as one community in Egypt and touched my heart," he said. "He is a God of love." Will you assist native Christians working to break down barriers between peoples of different faiths and reconcile them to Christ?

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).
