Evangelizing the Isles of the Sea


Over the course of the years Christian Aid has aided over a hundred evangelistic, church-planting missions in the Philippines, plus ministries that care for needy children and operate Bible schools.

Today, while maintaining support for many of the ministries that have an historic relationship with Christian Aid, the focus is on missions reaching out to the still-unreached remote tribes and people groups, especially in Mindanao. See story on this website about native missionaries reaching the Talaandig people of northern Mindanao.


Christian Aid developed an interest in Indonesia in its early years and began helping a ministry headed by the converted son of an Islamic scholar. It sent assistance to a Christian radio station covering Java, as well as a half-dozen children's homes and Bible school ministries. In the late 1990's Christian Aid generated support for Christians driven from their homes by Islamic terrorists.

Papua New Guinea

Christian Aid also assists a Bible translation ministry on Papua New Guinea, a mountainous island nation with over 800 local languages.
