Another missionary works with children and youth in a Southeast Asian country. The vast majority of people in this country are Muslims, and poverty is a widespread problem.
“Our aim”, she says, “is that the children experience God, feel love, and have a family and security. We desire for each child that they would have stability in their lives and learn how precious they are and that God loves them no matter what they do. We desire that they reach their full potential in God and live a meaningful life. We want to see in the lives of the children God’s truth, which alone can bring transformation. I believe that children are God’s keys to reach their families abd country with God’s message and to bring transformation.”

In a region of South Asia, where religions and worldviews clash and where dizzying economic growth exists alongside growing social injustice, a European missionary couple has been working for many years to motivate and equip local Christians and congregations to spread the Kingdom of God in their country.
After different approaches they have recognized
Church planting movements can neither be built up from scratch nor produced exactly by the book. On the other hand, we see the best potential in the trusting accompaniment of our local colleagues on the front lines through personal relationships, encouragement, and prayer. We also accompany individual church brothers and sisters so that the Good News takes on more shape in their private and professional lives.
Since healthy churches naturally spread the Kingdom of God, the two local churches are introducing the Natural Church Development (NCD). They have trained local coaches who are available to the congregations, and they are working to transform and supplement existing, internationally accessible support materials in a culturally appropriate way. They have found that “the power of tradition, complacency, and often even saturation with Christian offerings still stand in the way of the openness to a sincere health check as offered by NCD. So they ask for support in prayer for churches and church leaders whose hearts are open to better reflect the Kingdom of God in their churches with the help of NCD and to carry it out into society accordingly.
