Zara is from an area of the Middle East where she never once encountered a Christian, church, or Bible, meaning she had no opportunity to hear the gospel. She left everything in her home country to find a better life in Germany with her 4-year-old daughter. This decision was costly, and she feels unsafe and unstable in such a foreign culture.read more
Northern Ethiopia, part of the 10/40 window of unreached people, is one of the most challenging areas for evangelical Christianity. Persecution and living ostracized from the society has been the story of believers in this area.
But God is at work, and opportunities to hear the good news are growing for people living there. Partnership efforts between evangelical churches and mission organizations are raising up mobilizers who are catching God’s heart for the nations with a focus on reaching the unreached in northern Ethiopia.
“Now I’m aware I am a significant part of [God’s] Great Commission, and He has purpose for each one of us,” shared Anna-Lena, a German believer.read more
Some people seem to just overflow with joy. They have contagious smiles, generous spirits, and hospitable homes. Assumpta is one of those people. She can light up a room with her laughter, cook an incredible meal for a multitude of people, and make you wonder just what has given her so much passion.

This was a question raised by college student, Ashlee, during a CMM vision trip to our mobilization team in Germany.

As they read the location, dress, customs, and statistics of the Ming people, Jordan’s eyes widened. She had seen these people, but always assumed they were just a part of her own people – she didn’t realize they were a people group all their own. “These people are right next door to me, and I never knew,” she shared. “We are learning about the unreached, but maybe they are not as far away as they seem.”read more
“Through this training, I now understand that support raising is a means of how God provides for us. I believe this method will really help us as Chinese missionaries to serve more steadily for the long haul.”read more
It all started during the lesson on prayer. “That’s how I will get involved,” Levi thought to himself. “I will pray for more laborers. This takes the least amount of work, and I’m still doing something.” As Levi began to pray faithfully, God began to change his heart.read more
Elizabeth has always known that God had a role for her to play in reaching the unreached, but did not feel called to be a cross-cultural goer in the conventional sense. How could she get actively involved in reaching those who have not heard of Jesus?read more
A new season of building relationships began for the CMM team in Germany as mobilizers, Shana and Brandi, sat in the candle-lit home of a young German woman named Mira.
Mira told them stories of refugees whom she was helping out of abusive relationships, sharing the gospel with, and spending hours investing and pouring into. Mira was clearly living a lifestyle that models Christ’s mandate to make disciples of all nations.read more
