Dear Friend,

As Navigators we are connected with like-minded labourers across the globe who are labouring to spread the good news of Jesus and make disciples. God has laid on the hearts of an East Asia Team the vision to recruit, train and support a long-term work effort venturing to the unreached.

Those who do not know Christ, and do not have followers of Jesus near them, are truly “unreached”. Going to the unreached is at the heart of the Great Commission Jesus left us. Historically, for every 31 gospel workers sent globally, only 1 goes to the unreached. This East Asia team strongly felt led to be a light to another nation and continue the generational flow of the Gospel onward and outward.

“Our hope is that, as your faith continues to grow, our area of activity among you will greatly expand, so that we can preach the gospel in the regions beyond you.”  

– 2 Corinthians 10: 15-16

The task at hand

A team of fifteen, including couples and singles, have entered a 2-year training program to prepare them to go a nation in need of Christ’s love. Phase 1 began in late 2023, where the team was sent to an area local to them who have not heard of the good news of Jesus. By God’s grace and with your help, phase 2 will begin at the end of this year. A select group from the original 15 will move to the unreached nation along the Silk Road.

Late last year, four labourers visited this Islamic nation for a survey trip. The Lord provided the entry visas and they travelled to two potential cities where they could launch their work in the second half of this year.

They spoke with businessmen who have lived and worked there for many years to glean wisdom on how to successfully enter and thrive in this country. They also spoke with other gospel workers who shared helpful tips about ministering to this people group.

They were encouraged by the overview of what was needed to help prepare them for access into this nation, life, and language training. It became even more clear that safety was a key concern in this line of work.

The Lord strengthened the team with Numbers 13-14. Encouraging them to have a spirit of faith and not fear – like that of Caleb and Joshua when exposed to the challenges of entering the Promised Land.

“But because my servant Caleb has a different spirit and follows me wholeheartedly, I will bring him into the land he went to, and his descendants will inherit it.” 

– Numbers 14:24

Partner with our global workers

For this long-term faith venture, an interest-bearing account for an ‘Endowment Fund’ was created where US partners raised 1 million dollars. The team is trusting God to raise an additional $500k, with $300k raised from nationals and $200k from the Asia Pacific – which includes the Aussies!

Thank God our Jehovah Jireh, our Provider, who graciously meets all our needs according to His glorious riches.

By faith, the East Asia team will mobilise and send more teams and future generations of labourers.

Your gifts and prayer will not only support a pioneering disciple-making movement in an unreached country now; but will also begin the mobilisation of a new wave of labourers to go to the ends of the earth.

Thank you for your continued partnership! Please prayerfully consider if God would have you contribute and participate in this strategic faith venture. We would be honoured to have you give to our global partners in this noble task.

Labouring Together,

Grant Dibden
National Director
