When an indigenous missionary carries the Bible into a village that doesn’t have a church, he is already prepared to connect in meaningful ways with the local people because he —
comes from the same tribe or a nearby tribe
already knows their language
is familiar with their customs, lifestyle, and religion.
Indigenous missionaries often need as little as $250/month to live and work, because they live at the local economic level. In addition, they are committed to long-term discipleship. The result: enduring communities of believers.
