Create International

Reading and listening to John Piper has ignited an interest in fulfilling the Great Commission among the unreached people groups of the world. A brief definition of an unreached people group would be: any distinct ethno-linguistic group that has no indigenous evangelizing church of it's own. I've been educating myself, praying and seeking to make my church more globally minded. It's often easy to focus missionary energies on places that already have a significant Christian presence and ignore the hard places. This morning I was reading from the Global Prayer Digest (a great tool!) and learned about Create International, an organization using technology and cultural contextualization of the gospel in remarkably innovative ways. For instance, by sending a team trekking through the Himalayas passing out native-style art and storytelling booklets in the Tibetan tradition! Check out this 5-minute promo video...
