The coronavirus isn’t the only obstacle to North American missionaries, and Global Disciples believes it is time for a new approach.
Everyone is talking about the coronavirus (now named COVID-19), which continues to spread across China and the rest of the world with over 73,000 people infected. Millions of Chinese are still in lockdown, mostly in the area of Wuhan where COVID-19 first emerged.
Missionaries from North America also face trouble getting into certain countries because of totalitarian governments, wars, and language and cultural barriers. But Barbara* of Global Disciples says today’s world provides new opportunities as well.
And Global Disciples finds the best way to spread the Gospel to any given culture is from the inside: partnering with someone who was born in that culture and who understands the language, economics, and customs.
Barbara says, “They also have an understanding of the historic context that we coming in from the outside wouldn’t have, because they’ve been there. They’ve lived through the crisis. They’ve been the refugee. They’ve been through the economic ups and downs, they understand how things work in their country because they’ve lived it their entire life.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
