Frequently Asked Questions

What happens after I give a gift?

ANM’s native missionaries deliver every gift in Jesus’ name to someone in need. Every gift you give is part of the mission to share the Gospel and start new churches where people still need to hear the Gospel for the first time.

Where will my gift go?

Your gift will be given to a person in need in one of the 100+ countries where ANM works. Our native missionaries always share the Gospel along with the practical gift, so your gift will make an eternal impact wherever it goes.

What if an item receives more donations than needed?

That would be wonderful! Any extra funds will be distributed in the form of other highly needed items that will transform lives and spread the Gospel around the world.

Who is ANM?

As Christians, we all want other people to experience the Gospel that has transformed our lives. But it can be difficult to find the best way to make a difference as a Christian, especially beyond your local community. For the past 30 years, ANM (Advancing Native Missions) has helped Christians like you, as well as churches, get involved in global outreach that transforms lives and communities in the name of Jesus.

What does “Native Missions” in your name mean?

Instead of sending American missionaries to other countries, we send and equip native missionaries serving in their own countries. They already know the local languages and cultures where they work, and they live on local budgets. That means your donation goes farther than with traditional “foreign missions.” ANM currently works in more than 100 countries, focusing on sharing the Gospel where it has never been heard before.

Microloan for a Woman Entrepreneur


Help a woman support her family.

More Information

Women are sustaining families worldwide. At the same time, they often have fewer job opportunities, fewer rights, and less access to education. Your gift can help a woman start a simple small business to earn money and support her family. Women with microloans have launched produce stands, beauty salons, butcher shops, and more. When one entrepreneur pays back her loan, the money is loaned to another woman to help her start a business.

Former Prostitutes in Rwanda Find Hope

The Rwanda Genocide plunged thousands of women into poverty. In desperation, many sold themselves to earn money for their families. Through a microloan program, women in seemingly hopeless situations have found dignity, opportunity, and hope. With a $50 loan, Mary Jose started a produce stand and began meeting weekly with other women for encouragement, business tips, and discipleship. Soon she was leading the women’s business group and the church choir. Mary Jose and some other women eventually pooled their funds to open a salon. Now she is a respected business owner who returns to her former streetcorners to share the hope of Jesus with women who need the Good News and a little help.

“I am a widow. During the 1994 genocide, I was desperate … [Today,] I can feed myself and my family … I’m recognized by the community as a human being.” – Mary Jose
