Why do we raise thousands of dollars of monthly support, move ourselves and our families to foreign cities, learn their languages and cultures, and seek to plant churches or establishing disciple-making movements within those cultures?
Because Christ tells us to go and make disciples of all nations. Matt 28:19-20.
But the response we often get from those who have thought about the human and financial resources being expended in this effort:
Wouldn’t it be cheaper and more effective to train and support indigenous believers to reach their own people?
How should you and I respond to this pushback?
