It is our obligation as followers of Christ to reach the lost (I John 3:17-18). God’s word says in Romans 10:14-15, “How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent?” Jesus gave us a command to “Go and make disciples of all nations.” Those who have not gone themselves are encouraged to pray and give for those in the field.
Today, over 85 percent of Asian countries do not allow western missionaries to come and freely preach the Gospel and plant churches. For the gospel to spread throughout these vast regions, native evangelists and pastors believers must be equipped to reach their families, friends, and communities.
This is why Reach Himalaya Ministries is committed to training and supporting native pastors and evangelists who have been called to church planting and sharing the Gospel, as well as providing for the physical needs of people via food, medicine, clean water, and shelter. With few or no cultural barriers to overcome, as they are already integrated in the area and speak the language, native labourers can readily preach the Gospel to those who, unlike their western counterparts, have never heard. Although there are many difficulties, native workers for the Gospel are much better prepared to overcome them and reach the people effectively.
However, they need ongoing training, encouragement and tools to win souls for Jesus Christ.
While there are many native missionaries called to serve who are ready to go, sadly many of them cannot because they serve in poor villages where the native church just doesn’t have the means to support them. That’s why they need your help. You can sponsor a native missionary for as little as $100 a month! This small investment can reap huge returns in souls won for Christ in the unreached areas of the world! Would you prayerfully consider committing to $150 to $250 a month to bring the Gospel to the Himalayas?
If you give to this ministry, you will receive a photo and testimony of a missionary working in the field here, thanks to your generous donation! We are looking for individuals, churches, and businesses to contribute to our ministry according to their ability. Without support from Christians around the world, our brothers and sisters would not be able to complete the task of sharing Christ with every village and people group in the Himalayas.
Our native evangelists have planted and lead many home groups and churches. Within these churches are people whose lives have been changed by the Gospel message. People have discovered a new way of living, filled with hope and faith in the Living God and grounded in the truth of His Word.
The churches planted in each culture are truly indigenous in character, self-governing, self-propagating and, as soon as possible, self-supporting.
Many native brothers and sisters are waiting to be sent. They just need your help!
