Requirements

We conduct simple business seminars, support the write up of business plans and mentor the partners during implementation. While we help with the business we also share about stewardship and other values that enable people to be people living after God’s word.

In the future we might look into developing an even simple course or training for woman who are near illiterate people not familiar with “business plans” to mentor them into these concepts in practical ways.

The moments that make it all worth it 

"If you are starting out on the language and culture learning journey or if you have been at it a while and are feeling tired and despondent, I encourage you to persevere. To stick with it and pray for strength to continue. Keep asking questions and keep learning about the culture," urges Beth.

Trata de personas en Asia Central

Trabajadores de OM en Asia Central forman relaciones con mujeres que la sociedad desprecia, mostrando que no son menos; son amadas.

Leaving a legacy

“I love hearing from the local people here about the workers that have gone before us who have now returned to their passport countries,” shares Beth. “I hear stories like: ‘She taught me to quilt’ or ‘She gave me this recipe’ or ‘She taught me how to set a table for foreigners.’ And, of course, the best stories begin: ‘She taught me about Jesus.’ These are the things those who have gone before us have left behind.”

¿Por qué nadie nos lo ha dicho antes?

Después de años de vivir entre un grupo apartado de personas no alcanzadas, los obreros de OM ven a Dios atraer a los primeros creyentes locales a sí mismos.

First fruit in the mountains

After years of living among a remote unreached people group, OMers see God draw the first local believers to Himself.

When did this place become home?

“If I am completely honest, I think I spent our first two years in Central Asia longing to go home to our home country (or even to the USA where we had lived for a short while),” admits Beth. “I would pray: Your will God but deep down I was hoping that His will was that we wouldn’t be here long.”
