Western missionaries often define partnering with nationals as moving into a country as a PAUL looking for a national Timothy and Titus to minister to. Live Global is different as we partner with nationals. We go as a BARNABUS looking for in-country national PAULs who make Timothy and Titus leaders within their own culture.
Sometimes God makes it easy to link a national partner with a church in North America, this time thanks to some baseball in Nicaragua.
As Theo and Chrys operate an under-funded Christian radio station in Cyprus, the logic and the facts are saying to close it down; the faith, though, says to continue!
When we in North America saw the news reports, photos, and videos of the earthquake in Türkiye and Syria, we might have felt helpless. Our heart asks questions and makes reasonable excuses: “What can we do from so far away?” “Would the little I can give make a difference?” “I don’t speak their language.” That’s why national partnership ministry is so valuable. You actually can make a difference through partnering with Live Global’s national ministry partners like Robin and Salina*!
We at Live Global marvel at our national partners’ faith and endurance as they serve diligently in circumstances it’s hard to imagine from North America. We love sharing how God is working in Myanmar through the stories of our partners.
So, does the Bible really teach that the millions of people living in the most distant, most isolated, most remote and most difficult to reach places in the world, still must literally hear the gospel message (and believe it!) to be saved?
