Breakthroughs Among the Yao of Mozambique

We were young, excited YWAMers, and we went in 1998 to live among the Yao people. At that time, there were just about ten Yao believers in the whole of Mozambique. It was the hardest people group in that whole area. That was like the stronghold, where the devil really had his hands on the Yao people.

For the first eight years, we lived in the city, and we saw very little happen. We basically learned what not to do. Then we got connected with Frontier Missions, and we started learning to do a few things differently. …continue reading…

God’s Sure Guidance

Craig and his DTS outreach team were asked to help long-term missionaries locate an unreached people group in an Asian nation.

After a long bus ride out into the countryside, the team divided into two groups. Craig’s group was told to hike into a large area and look for the people group’s villages. They had a map and a majority-language translator with them, but they didn’t have a clue where to begin.

Simple Clues Lead to Treasure

Effectively sharing the gospel with Muslims seems like a daunting challenge; there are so many barriers of culture and belief that it’s hard to know where and how to begin. Some of our workers are finding encouragement in a simple practice they call “treasure hunting”. Before going out, they spend time in prayer, asking God to give them words, pictures, or impressions that will lead them to people that He has prepared for the Good News. Then they search for those clues and follow up as best they can. A team in the Middle East …continue reading…
