“Missions is not the ultimate goal of the Church. Worship is. Missions exists because worship doesn’t. Worship is ultimate, not missions, because God is ultimate, not man. When this age is over, and the countless millions of the redeemed fall on their faces before the throne of God, missions will be no more. It is a temporary necessity. But worship abides forever.” – John Piper (Let the Nations Be Glad! The Supremacy of God in Missions)
When asked of how effective our MMK ministry is, in particular regards to lasting fruit, I suppose the question is valid when we consider that many of migrants have accepted Christ through our work of evangelism. But, what happens when they return to their homeland? Did the seed we plant, grow and bear fruit?
Based on the reports we received from visitations made by full time MKK workers to two Christian-hostile countries, it is apparent that the converts have been sharing about their salvation with their family members, friends and neighbours with great ease! This is an amazing breakthrough. Under the same circumstance, foreign missionaries would not only face police surveillance and various restrictions posted by the countries, they would also need substantial time to establish friendship with the people before presenting the Gospel.
Through His guidance, we observe that several strategies over these several years in which MMK embarked upon, have yielded much fruit. These include:
Another project MMK undertakes is establishing the Theological Education Fund to support those who feel called to dedicate their lives for the ministry.
We’re reminded of John15:16 – You did not choose me, but I chose you and appoint you to go and bear fruits—fruits that will last.
