Why does MTM conduct Biblical leadership training seminars among native Christians in SE Asia? The Title Of This Post Says It All! Ninety Three baptized believers (all from the unreached tribes of Nepal) in one year. The result of the sacrificial living of native Christian missionaries who daily lay down their lives to take the gospel to the unreached. This is the testimony that came to our ears as we recently conducted a MTM training seminar in Dhading, Nepal. How long would it take a foreign missionary to learn the language, learn the culture to attain such a success rate among the unreached? Perhaps three to five years and quite possibly….never. These dedicated passionate native Christians are fully equipped with the native language and culture and their dedication and passion for Jesus Christ is a great challenge to every western Christian ….including myself.
We had approx. 50 native Christian leaders attend the MTM leadership training conference. Many of them came from distant remote villages which can only be reached by on foot. Their hunger and great desire to hear the Word of God taught is extremely invigorating for any Bible teacher. They will sit for hours on the floor to hear the Word of God taught. How privileged were Brother Rick Rhodes and I to experience such a blessing as this? Darren Sommers also was greatly blessed to be part of our MTM ministry team.
After the conference we traveled approx 5 hours by bus to Pokhara, Nepal to continue our ministry there. Saturday morning Darren and I ministered in two different churches and then Sunday morning we shared in the baptism of 18 new believers who came to Jesus Christ from the unreached people groups of Nepal. All 18 of these new believers are the result of native Christians laying down their lives in reaching the unreached for Jesus Christ. Words totally fail me to express the joy I experienced in that baptism. This really is the bottom line of what MTM is all about. A Very Special Thank You To All Who Support This Ministry And Make MTM Possible.
