Summer Evangelism Camps Reach Tribal People

August 4, 2011

Summer is a time of the year when most tribal people are not busy because they are waiting for their crops to grow. During this time native missionaries in Burma hold summer evangelism camps that are very effective in reaching these families. Missionaries are able to spend a concentrated time in evangelism, teaching and following up new believers.

The tribal people are mostly Buddhists/animists. Christianity is totally unfamiliar to them. That is why this ministry is glad to have a week to thoroughly present the gospel to the unbelievers. When some respond and confess their belief in the saving grace of Christ, the prolonged time enables missionaries with Harvester Missions to help them to develop a foundation in Biblical truth.

The goal after each summer camp is to leave behind a missionary who can plant a church and continue to evangelize the community. The need for Bibles and literature is ongoing. Though the camps reach many families, there are other people who do not have time to come to the camps to hear the gospel. For them the missionary needs additional evangelistic literature.
