Mission: Possible 5
Ministry for the bold and adventurous! Go where people have never heard the name of Jesus. We have some friends who are running a crucial ministry to the Kham Tibetans. They have a radio program — the only one in the Kham Tibetan dialect, which plays mostly Tibetan/Indian pop songs, but also broadcasts the Gospel, Tibetan house-church meetings, and Tibetan praise-and-worship music. Most Kham Tibetans don’t even know this program exists because they don’t own their own short-wave radios. Until we deliver them.
Sharing a picture book of the Bible from creation to revelation.
Our friends are looking for adventurous short-term teams of passionate Jesus freaks to trek into villages and nomad camps to distribute short-wave radios and other gifts while using creative art forms to share the Gospel. You do not have to speak the language. Teams will identify the “man of peace” and others who are interested in what is shared. We will also be introducing a discipleship program as we return to an area we've already visited.
Dates: April 6-19, 2010.
Purpose: Re-visit those we met in July 2009, distribute radios and Bible books, and start a discipleship program. Only .05 percent of the nearly 1.5 million Kham Tibetans are Christian (about 7,500). Churches are non-existent and must be planted. Ninety-five percent of the people are Buddhist, blending Mahayana Buddhism (Zen in the West) with ancient occult practices.
