Collaboration and North American missions

Mission Network News - 1 hour 11 min ago

Missio Nexus photo op in front of the MNN booth! From left to right: MNN's Katey Hearth, Joe Handley of Asian Access, MNN's Laurelle Terrero, & Noel Becchetti of Asian Access.

USA (MNN) -- The 2014 Missio Nexus Leadership Conference for North American mission groups has come to an end. However, the new strategies and relationships formed during the four-day event in Atlanta, Georgia are only just beginning. Among the major takeaways from this year's event: collaboration. "There's no way we can do the whole job alone; we need each other," notes Joe Handley of Asian Access. "That's the reality of the Kingdom of God, and I think that's the way that God designed it to be. Unfortunately, many of us just say, 'Hey, it's our way or the highway,' or 'We've got the best thing since sliced bread, so if you can't do it our way, we won't work together.'" Asian Access (A2) was among the first groups to put this theory into practice two years ago. "We realized we were lacking in an area of sending folks to Asia to serve Christ, particularly in Japan," Handley recalls. "There was a huge need, and we just didn't have the capacity [to fill it]." It took some time, but A2 and SIM USA were able to form a collaboration that worked well for both groups. Read more details here in the original article. "That has been, really, a phenomenal partnership. Together, we're working in a way that advances the Kingdom in Japan," shares Handley. "They let us lead the work in Japan, but they become the sending force."

Collaboration is woven into the fabric of A2's ministry. They don't just send short-term mission teams to Asia: they partner with national pastors to further the Great Commission. "Every one of our national directors is the leader of a church or an entire movement, or even the bishop of a denomination," Handley says. Asian Access develops Christ-like national leaders that strive to multiply churches and transform communities. A2 is working in 20 Asian nations, doing all for the glory of God. Learn more about their ministry and how you can come alongside their work here. "That's just one small example of what groups are doing; Asian Access isn't the only one." Pray for new partnerships and collaboration that began at the Missio Nexus conference. Pray that these efforts will honor God and expand His Kingdom around the world.

Violence spills over Nigeria borders into Cameroon

Mission Network News - 1 hour 11 min ago
Nigeria/Cameroon (ODM) -- Editor's Note: Due to the nature of this story and the related security issues, we thought it best to share it with you as it was written by Open Doors.

On Friday, September 19th, as trading was in full swing in the northeastern town of Mainoik, Boko Haram fighters reportedly stormed the market place around 1:30pm, opening fire on traders and killing at least 36 people. Many who tried to escape the market area were killed by stray bullets or by vehicles as they attempted to flee across the highway. The town is less than 35 miles west of Borno's state capital Maiduguri. The military say they killed at least 48 insurgents as they fled the town. One day before the assault on Mainoik, Boko Haram attacked the Federal College of Education in Kano. At least 15 people died in this attack. Witnesses said the attackers stormed the college, exchanging fire with police officers posted outside the grounds. There was at least one suicide bomber among the group whose explosives detonated when police shot him. The explosion caused the ceiling in one of the buildings to collapse. Several of the insurgents entered a lecture hall and opened fire on the students. Boko Haram's violent attacks also occurred across the border in Cameroon. The militants launched their first assault in the early evening of September 18th in Assighassia. The army responded promptly; two militants were killed and a Cameroonian soldier was injured in the ensuing fight. "Two hours later, the terrorist group again attacked the village of Ganse and killed four civilians," state-run Cameroon Radio Television reported. More than 40,000 people have fled to Cameroon to escape Boko Haram attacks in northern Nigeria. Now, the danger is following them across the border, prompting the UNHCR to try to move these refugees further from the front-lines. Meanwhile, the bishops of Nigeria, in a September 21st statement, called upon the Nigerian government to do more to protect lives and properties. "As Nigeria tragically bleeds and burns, we bishops are alarmed at the scale of human and material destruction, and at the disruption of village and community life with increased levels of hatred and the potential for more conflicts in the nation. While Muslims are sometimes targets of these destructive attacks, Christians churches and non-Muslims in general are the principal targets for extermination, expropriation, and expulsion by the Boko Haram insurgents, the perpetrators of all this destruction…. In the face of this Boko Haram group and other criminal militias arming themselves beyond our legitimate government and brazenly killing innocent, defenseless citizens, our government must do more than it is currently doing to safeguard our lives and defend our nation. It must do more than it is currently doing to fight off and disarm these actual destroyers of Nigerians and Nigeria. It must do more than it is currently doing to prevent segments of our nation from drifting into anarchy and mutual self-destruction and to bring criminals to justice," the bishops declared. Father, we pray for the nation of Nigeria and the constant onslaught of Boko Haram attacks. You call us to trust in You, and not in governments or other man-made institutions who cannot save. And so we turn to You, that You will save and empower the nation's forces to combat these attacks in a way that it will be clear that it has come from You. We pray for Christians who faithfully come to church and worship each week, knowing the danger. We pray for the girls who were kidnapped and their families, that You would protect and reunite them. And we pray for the many who have lost homes and family members, that You would provide comfort and shelter and sustenance, and that You would grant hope. In the name of Jesus, their only hope (and ours) in this life, Amen.

WorldServe Ministries sees amazing faith in Ethiopia

Mission Network News - 1 hour 11 min ago

Ethiopia (MNN) -- If life gives you lemons, build a church. That's what a pastor in Ethiopia did and continues to do, despite the hardships he faces. Wilfred Unrau of WorldServe Ministries shares this man's story, and a little about what they're doing in Ethiopia. "WorldServe Ministries works with indigenous people in their countries. We don't have any North Americans on the ground at those places," he says. They're currently working with five organizations in Ethiopia. Their work is to support, to provide for the needs these ministries have. Recently this has involved providing school desks for two schools. They're also helping to build three more schools in that area. Unrau says there is a lot of persecution in Ethiopia and surrounding countries, despite over half the population being Christian. "Ethiopia is a fascinating country. It's actually the only country in Africa that was not colonized, and it has a number of connections with our Bible," he explains. A man with the right attitude "I met a pastor that took us to his church, and we had an amazing worship service...so lively," Unrau says, explaining that he can't reveal the man's name because he is under persecution. 13 years ago, this man closed down his two night clubs after someone approached him and told him about the fulfillment of living in Christ. The next year he became a pastor and has since planted three churches. And if you count the church he planted in prison, it's four churches. This man has been imprisoned for his faith eight times over the last 12 years. You might wonder what drives a man to continue moving forward after so many years of opposition. For one thing, he is devoted to serving God. Unrau says, "He's one of the people who looks more at 'What have I got' as opposed to 'What do I not have.'" Everything he does have, Unrau explains, he uses to serve God. A church built from persecution So when people began throwing rocks at the people who came to his church services, the pastor prayed and asked God what he was supposed to do with this situation. Unrua says, "He looked at the rocks and [thought], 'Wait a minute: the people are collecting the rocks for us to build our church.' And so this pastor built his first church from the rocks that people threw at them while they were having their church service. And he thought it was so cool because he didn't have to go collect the rocks: [the church's enemies] were all collecting them for him." Unrau says it is people like this that WorldServe longs to partner with. More recently the pastor has secretly met with Christian students at a local university. Unrau says he got to see seven students graduate from the university after being discipled by the pastor. They are going back to their villages to start churches so their people can hear the Gospel. One of the students is heading back to Somalia. Those around him asked him if he knew what he was getting into, and he replied, "I could lose my life because of this. I am so happy to go plant a church in Somalia." Unrau says the pastor's Godly attitude spread to the students he discipled. Part of the work WorldServe does in other parts of the world is to establish micro loans. For the past four and a half years, WorldServe has never had a loan that wasn't paid back. They are carrying this ministry to Ethiopia in February. Unrau says that many business leaders have given them money for a specific project that is a passion of theirs. Unrau says this is a "super idea for those business people that want to see their money physically working out there." He explains that the micro loans provide a unique opportunity for gifts of money to continue to work on the field for 10 years and beyond after the donation is made. If you'd like to know more about WorldServe and how you can partner with them, visit them here. "Worldserve.ca -- we gladly lose our flag in order to empower the indigenous people. It's not about us, it's about the work God is doing there and God allowing us to come alongside of Him and just do some amazing stuff. Those are the people that we're looking for," Unrau says.

Mozambique ministry grows amid turmoil

Audio Scripture Ministries has been working in Mozambique since 2005.

Mozambique (ASM/MNN) -- A ministry in Mozambique is growing by leaps and bounds amid political turmoil. Presidential elections are coming up on October 15. Audio Scripture Ministries (ASM) has work in one of Mozambique's most politically-charged cities, Xai Xai. Just last week, a presidential candidate and his staff were attacked by members of the opposing political party while campaigning in Xai Xai and three neighboring cities. Political violence has been raging for over a year, and many fear the country will relapse into civil war. Please pray for peace during the upcoming elections and that ASM staff will be protected. Pray also for a new project starting in the Chitewe language. ASM has begun a new project in central Mozambique to record and distribute Scripture songs and stories in the Chitewe language, which is a subset of the primary Tewe language. ASM says 150,000 Chitewe speakers currently have no written Bible and no recorded Scripture materials. Pray for national staff as they record the life-changing messages of God's Word and distribute them to those who need to hear.

Wolf is at the door, Baghdad

Mission Network News - 1 hour 12 min ago

Iraq (MNN) -- Despite U.S. airstrikes, ISIS is at the gates of Baghdad. Word from Canon Andrew White, also called the "Vicar of Baghdad," is that the militant Islamic terror group is roughly 2 km away. Already, there's been an attack on an Iraqi base roughly an hour from Baghdad's doorstep. The camp was overrun by militants last week. The Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East noted on Facebook that fierce fighting has been reported on the outskirts of the city. It comes at a time when the United States has admitted to underestimating what's been going on in Syria and overestimating Iraq's ability to fight the militants. Jeff Palmer with Baptist Global Response says, "Hopefully, Baghdad will hold up, but it does mean more refugees and Internally Displaced Persons. As the world knows, everybody is stretched to the limits from north Syria over to northern Iraq and now down toward Baghdad." What if ISIS does attempt taking Baghdad? It'll make a bad situation worse, Palmer predicts. "Where do you go from your capital city? If it falls, where do you go? There are a lot of people there: a lot of believers and a lot of non-believers that are just caught up in the crossfire."

(Photo courtesy Baptist Global Response)

BGR humanitarian partners have been working in other parts of the country among some 250,000 other displaced Iraqis. Palmer says one of their partners in northern Iraq reported, "Every school building--about 600--was filled with Internally Displaced Persons and refugees. They can't even get school started. How do you handle sanitation? How do you handle feeding?" It's more than that. Some of the IDPs were chased. The emotional and mental condition of the newer refugees is not good. "People have blank stares. They didn't even know where they were. They didn't know they had crossed from their country to another country. They're just fleeing, and they're just trying to find a place that is safe for their families for tonight. They don't know what's going to happen tomorrow." It's the uncertainty that shatters what refuge exists. Uncertainty breeds despair. Despair often leads to hopelessness. "The Gospel plays a huge role because on top of the food and the shelter and the things that come to meet people's needs, it actually is the only thing that REALLY gives hope for the future."

The team helped several hundred families by providing locally-purchased tents, drinking water, infant formula, and basic food staples. The same partners have helped an earlier group of refugees begin developing small businesses that will support their families and, as loans are repaid, help even more displaced families in turn. More are coming, and their resources won't hold out. "We've not seen anything like this in terms of man-made disaster, war, civil war in a long time, if ever. I would say that you're looking at the millions and the millions displaced. They're fleeing into Turkey. On the other side, they're going into Lebanon, Jordan. They're displaced in the country of Syria, north Iraq." Yet, it has been difficult to raise the money needed to provide more than a drop in the bucket. Blame compassion fatigue, but Palmer says it's more than numbers. "You can look at the millions and say, 'Yeah, they're just numbers,' but also they're individual stories of people fleeing, like a son carried his father 60 miles on his back to get him to safety." The displaced families represented the range of northern Iraq’s residents who would rather flee than submit to radical Islamist rule, including many Christians. Some observers believe northern Iraq’s ancient Christian communities are on the verge of extinction. Palmer says, "Pray for peace in this area. Pray that the Prince of Peace would come and change hearts. Until hearts are changed in this conflict, I'm not sure we're going to see an end to it." Ask God to make His great love known to every Iraqi heart that is searching for peace. Learn more about how you can help in this crisis by clicking here.

Home in South Asia provides refuge for abused teenagers, women

Mission Network News - Tue, 09/30/2014 - 5:00am

South Asia (BGR) -- Baptist Global Response shares the following prayer request for women in South Asia: The Atulya Home in South Asia provides a safe place for young women coming from backgrounds of abuse, exploitation, and rejection. “The vision of the home is to see the women healed and set free from their past, to find hope for their future, and to move into a destiny in God,” a ministry partner says. “These women come from places where they are considered worthless, so we long for them to discover who they are in God—that they are ‘atulya,’ which means ‘precious and of great worth.’” The home currently houses seven women but has a capacity for 10. The staff creates an environment for these women where they can experience safety, healing, relationships, and community. Atulya also offers education, social and practical skills training, and vocational training, hoping to eventually equip inhabitants to live independently. The staff would like to eventually expand and find a bigger facility so Atulya can house up to 15 women at one time. Pray for the young women, and ask that they start to feel like they belong. Pray that they continue to want what God has planned for their lives. The holidays are particularly difficult as they watch others from the community return to their homes. Pray, also, that staff can raise enough money to cover costs. Give to widows, orphans, and children here.

The Treasure: multifaceted audio Scripture

USA (MNN) -- While globalization is one of the key issues highlighted at this year's Missio Nexus Leadership Conference, so is urbanization: the movement of people from remote locations into the city. Laurel Verburg of World Mission shares why their audio Scripture device, The Treasure, is perfect for both settings. "No matter what your mission is, chances are the population you're working with is going to respond to an audio Scripture," Verburg observes. "So, The Treasure is a great tool for doing that. "Small group ministry is huge in churches," she adds, "and if you're talking about urbanization--where people are coming in from remote areas, or coming en masse, illiteracy is still an issue. "I would see that [The Treasure] would be used very appropriately for a local Christian that's trying to reach people that are coming in. You could set up listening groups that give hope [to foreigners] with the Truth of the message of Christ." World Mission uses The Treasure as a tool to deliver God's Word to those who have never heard, targeting especially unreached people. Verburg is one of the World Mission workers spreading the word about The Treasure among Missio Nexus attendees.

"Unreached people groups: that's our hotspot," states Verburg. "But, we love other people to consider it as a resource for what they're doing." When other mission groups or churches ask World Mission for Treasures, Verburg says they first ask which people groups are being ministered to. Then, World Mission loads blank Treasure devices with whatever language is needed. There are over 6,000 recorded languages World Mission can load onto The Treasure. But, this small organization didn't record all the languages by themselves. "We share a library with other organizations," Verburg explains. "We don't want to redo what's already been done well."

Introducing people to Christ is the first purpose for The Treasure. But it's not the device's only function. "It can be used in so many other ways besides evangelism," notes Verburg. "For example, in northern Kenya, Swahili is a very common language. But we might be working with the Rendille people. We can put two languages together if that's appropriate. "Of course, we want the heart language first, but Swahili might be very valuable for them in learning, increasing their literacy, [etc.]."

Ebola numbers staggering, Church source of life-saving information

Mission Network News - Tue, 09/30/2014 - 5:00am

West Africa (MNN) -- Ebola is more than a virus. It's more than an epidemic, and more than a deadly outbreak. Ebola is a harsh and blatant reminder of our mortality. U.S. troops are on the ground working against the spread of Ebola, says The Wall Street Journal. CNN says experts are developing possible vaccines and beginning to test them on humans, and another doctor exposed to Ebola has arrived in the United States for testing. These are the updates on Ebola. How big is Ebola, really? How big will it get? CEO and President of Living Water International, Mike Mantel, commented on some recent numbers released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Early last week CNN reported the CDC estimated 550,000 to 1.4 million cases by January. Mantel says, "There's fear within the health community and church community that if we take reported and unreported cases together, that number by January may be as high as 1.4 million." He explains that this larger number includes the unreported cases as well as the officially recorded ones. LWI works in the two most dangerous countries: Liberia (ten years) and Sierra Leone (seven years). Most of the workers on ground are nationals. "Their focus is water access, sanitation, hygiene, and working with the local church to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ," Mantel says. He shares that LWI needs to adapt their strategy in light of Ebola. Some basic precautionary movements have been to have greater protection of those drilling the wells. That includes proper equipment of boots and gloves as well as separation from community members. Mantel says their message about hygiene and prevention must be conveyed mainly by radio rather than shared in groups. As the problem continues to grow geometrically and therefore exponentially, Mantel says LWI must ask themselves this question: "If in fact the numbers get as high as 1.4 in Liberia and Sierra Leone, how do we then continue to pursue our mission, given those incredible numbers?" What effect it has on the movements of the Church

So far, Ebola has managed to be one step ahead of any effort to stop the spread. Whether it's people stepping in too late or not working together effectively, Ebola draws up more than medical questions all across the globe. "There's a lot of misunderstanding, there's a lot of fear. There's a lot of death and fear of death. So, always when we're confronted with our own mortality or how we've spent our lives, or what's the meaning of life and what's the afterlife, certainly people are thinking about the Gospel," Mantel says. Churches are asking themselves how they can best show up on a daily basis to encourage those living in fear. Mantel says there is a very interesting link between Ebola, the Church, and sanitation. Take Liberia, for example, where 85% of the population calls themselves Christians and attend church. This is an opportunity for church leaders to share information about Ebola, how to prevent it, and what behavioral practices they need to change to protect themselves and their communities. And since Ebola brings up questions about death and eternity, this is an opportunity for churches to engage in that conversation and encourage communities with the truth of Jesus Christ. "As we continue to educate and engage with the Church, the Church in a very real way can help stop Ebola as well as respond to the openness that people have for the Gospel because of the tragedy," Mantel explains. And churches around the globe can encourage their congregations to step up and help. Mantel says support is needed both for prevention efforts--such as those done by LWI--and for medical treatment done by other organizations such as Samaritan's Purse and Doctors Without Borders. To help Living Water International, click here. Another way you can help is to pray. "I often hear from our teams on the ground that there is spiritual darkness hanging over both Liberia and Sierra Leone related to this Ebola crisis, and they ask for our prayers: that the truth of the Gospel will shine, that the Lord will intervene, that knowledge will spread, that teams will work together, that NGOs, the governments, and the Church will work together. There's no more powerful response than prayer," Mantel says. While the rest of the world grapples with the questions that arise from Ebola, Christians are supposed to have the answer: Jesus. "I think it is an opportunity for Christians around the world to rally, to lean into an advocacy posture with governments, with non-governmental organizations, with Churches," Mantel says. And if you're not concerned about Ebola because it's so far away, consider what that attitude will mean in light of the CDC's predictions: "If the modeling tools really predict the future and 1.4 [million] will be infected in these two West African Countries, clearly Ebola will spread to other parts of Africa and the world. It's important to get ahead of, even at this point, the spread."

Muslims can’t defend ISIS idiology

Mission Network News - Tue, 09/30/2014 - 5:00am

Iraq map

Iraq (MNN) -- As United States President Barak Obama admits to underestimating ISIS, the Islamic State has taken more territory. According to reports, ISIS is moving closer toward Turkey. Even though warplanes continue bombing the region, local leaders suggest it's too little to make any difference. This is making the refugee crisis even worse as non-Muslim and nominal Muslims flee for their lives. Voice of the Martyrs is an organization looking out for the needs of the region's Christians. Todd Nettleton just returned from the Kurdish region of North Iraq. He describes the human tragedy. "The total is over 1 million people who have been displaced, including tens of thousands just that have come in the last six weeks."

Todd Nettleton in Northern Iraq visiting displaced Iraqis.

Where have most of them come from? Nettleton says, "They're coming from all over, but primarily from the Nineveh plain, which includes Mosul and Qaraqosh and other Christian cities and villages where [most people were] Christian. ISIS seems to have targeted each village for takeover and to move the Christians out." This was a difficult trip for Nettleton. He was fighting fear. "My role at VOM is to be a voice and to tell these stories. How could I sit in my comfortable office and talk about the bold faith of our Christian brothers and sisters if I'm not willing to get on a plane and do that?"

Todd Nettleton visits with a displaced Iraqi family in Norther Iraq.

Voice of the Martyrs is working through local church partners to provide aid to those who are now in the region. Is it helping? "They don't have a lot of hope. Almost everyone we talked to [spoke] about leaving Iraq and going someplace safe. They don't trust that ISIS is going to be stopped." Through local church partners, VOM is providing food, clothing, shelter, and Scripture to those in need. "When they go and distribute the aid, they also give them a Bible and also pray with them. For many of the people that they're meeting, it's the first time in their life that someone has prayed directly for them." According to Nettleton, this providing outreach to non-Muslims as well as Muslims. He says Christians are seeing something new. "Muslims are far less defensive about Islam. Muslims know that ISIS is representing Islam, and they can't defend that. They are much more open to at least listening to the Gospel." Many of you have been asking MNN how you can help victims of ISIS: you can help VOM.

Are you "N"?

Nettleton explains. "We set up a Web site, http://www.i-am-n.com specifically to keep people updated on what's going on. It also provides an easy way to give online to support the work. And finally, you can order a T-shirt with the "N" symbol on the front of it." $10 of every T-shirt goes directly into the Middle East to help displaced Christians.
