Frequently Asked Questions
Q: If there are more Christians in Kenya & Uganda than in Canada, why should Canadian missionaries go there?
A: God calls individuals to the places of His choice. Paul wanted to visit areas in Asia Minor in Acts 16, but God had other plans. Peter was later sent there.
Q: It is cheaper to sponsor third-world nationals than for Canadians to live overseas. Why should Canadian missionaries travel abroad?
A: Nationals are certainly gifted, and are well able to fill many roles in church outreach. Canadians, however, can offer certain ministries that are needed, and are still useful on the overseas missions field.
Q: Why should we interfere with other cultures when their beliefs don’t harm others?
A: The Bible teaches that it is only through believing in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of our sins that we can be “saved”. Other believers might be sincere in their beliefs, but the only way to God the Father is through Jesus Christ. Also, in the Great Commission, Jesus commands His disciples to “go and teach all nations” (Matthew 28:19-20); and to “go into all the world, and preach the gospel to all the creation” (Mark 16:15-16).
Q: Wouldn’t it be better to send money for relief, such as food, tools, and medical supplies?
A: We value the ministry of other organizations in social outreach, but we feel our ministry is vital to reach children who will become tomorrow’s leaders.
