A Trek Into Another World

A small group of Asian pastors journey into the mountains of some of the most unreached peoples in the world There are an estimated 2,000 churches in our city with an estimated average of 40 people/church. That’s 80,000 Christians, with 99% of them coming from the country’s ethnic majority. This ethnic group is considered a reached people group. That is to say that there are, essentially, enough believers to evangelize their own people through indigenous growth. While that 80,000 is only 0.57% of the population of the city, it’s still a lot of believers. It’s hard to fathom in a place that often feels so dark and lost that there could be so many clinging to the hope of Jesus. An hour west of our city you cross a river and immediately enter into another world. This is the “T world” (I will use ‘T’ to refer to the nomadic groups that make up the largest unreached ethnic group in our province). Despite a relatively large population of believers in our city, you can count the total number of workers (or m*ssionaries) sent to T areas on two hands. From an estimated 80,000 believers, there are less than 10 workers engaging people with the Good News of Christ among an ethnic group of nearly seven million people within their own province. These pastors are traveling in their own province, yet they will be crossing into another world… Once you cross the river, the terrain drastically changes from flat plains to sub-Himalayan snow-capped peaks. Many mountains climb above 20,000 feet and are visible very quickly. The oxygen becomes thin and... read more

Raising children in the Great Commission

One family multiplies their God-sized vision It was spring in Malawi. The skies were the bluest they could be, and the trees just as green. The CMM’s children and family mobilization team, Weave, was en route to visit a family who had caught a glimpse of God’s heart for the nations, and they were blown away by their discovery. The team walked into the home of the Kachala family, where maps covered the walls. One wall displayed a world map where the parents, Reuben and Elisabeth, gathered to pray as a family for the unreached. On another wall hung a map of India, where God had led their family to serve among an unreached people group for a few years before calling them home to mobilize the Malawian church. In another room was an inflatable globe. As the teenage Kachala children, Maya and Paul, tossed this globe, the family told stories of how they had used it to play games and learn about the 10/40 Window as the kids grew up. The Kachalas attended a Weave workshop during the 2015 Global Mobilization Conference, where they learned that there was an entire community of Christians devoted to mobilizing families and children. Although this was their vision long before they encountered Weave, this pairing of identical visions started the Kachalas down the path that God had for them. It was obvious to the Weave team that the Kachalas believed God created them to make His glory known around the world. They could tell by the maps on the walls, but mostly they could see it in the family’s eyes as they... read more

Start knocking on doors: What to do when the unreached come to you

Zara is from an area of the Middle East where she never once encountered a Christian, church, or Bible, meaning she had no opportunity to hear the gospel. She left everything in her home country to find a better life in Germany with her 4-year-old daughter. This decision was costly, and she feels unsafe and unstable in such a foreign culture.

Entrusting children with the Great Commission

Some people seem to just overflow with joy. They have contagious smiles, generous spirits, and hospitable homes. Assumpta is one of those people. She can light up a room with her laughter, cook an incredible meal for a multitude of people, and make you wonder just what has given her so much passion. As our Weave team sat in Assumpta’s home in the rolling hills of Rwanda, they began to see the source of her overflowing passion.
