I attended a two week-training at ACM, my teacher mentioned that there are an imbalance in missionary distribution and missions finances, for the past years, missions offerings has decreased .
I’ve read from Joshua Project website that over 85% of all cross-cultural foreign missionaries minister among nominal Christian people. For every million unreached Muslims there are less than 3 missionaries. There is also imbalance in Missions finances, for every $1 Christian giving to all causes, half a penny goes to finance a pioneer church planting among the unreached people.
While downloading and reading the unfinished task powerpoint from Joshua Project Website I was challenged to give more, to commit my time to pray for the unreached, I am praying and hoping that soon I’ll be one of the 200,000.00 tentmaking missionaries from the Philippines. The Philippines is number one when it comes to tentmaking and in sending missionaries in the 10/40 window, that’s according to Project Joshua.
Jesus Christ commissioned us to go and make disciples of all nations, you may not be called to be a frontier missionary but you can give, you can pray, you can mobilized, or you can be a welcomer to the missionaries returning home.
Let’s continue to pray for the unreached people, for more information about this, visit the Joshua Project’s website.
