Zambian Led Field Day

Our goal as missionaries is and will always be to train Tongas to reach Tongas.  It is them, not the white missionaries, who best understand the culture, the struggles and mindset of the people.  And it is them who can best contextualize the gospel so that it is relevant to the people, but still true to its very foundations.

A few weeks ago, we realized a bit of this goal, as three of our guys led a majority of a field day for Foundations for Faming in Mazabuka.  It was awesome to see them not only teaching technique, but addressing the heart issues of their brothers and sisters.  Terren, Lloyd and Movety each brought something different to the table that day, and each did a magnificent job.

Hopefully, we’ll be able to hand this ministry off to them and other guys like them to run with in the future!
