We were fortunate to work with missionaries who firmly believed in the equipping of the national believers around them, and we saw the importance and effectiveness of it. “There is no junior Holy Spirit”!
Our family also represents Final Frontiers when able, a ministry whose model is mildly similar to Compassion, Intl., except that support goes directly to national church planters who are already on the field, ministering to their own countrymen and women, speaking their language, embracing their culture, and living life alongside them. Ultimately, Indians will reach India. Chinese will reach China. Americans will reach America. I believe we work against our goals when we believe otherwise.
