What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Worth a Smile Do you have a creative flair. Do you possess training and skills in media production? Do you have a knack for writing meaningful relevant Bible studies? Would you like to try?

The Evangelical church in East Timor is small and lack a voice. Attempts by evangelicals groups to aid and assist local people are often met with opposition by local priests. They warn against associating with evangelicals or attending their gatherings.

The hearts of the people however are slowly being warmed; trust is being built. Children and Youth clubs have reached into many communities and through these, TV programs of the children doing dance and gospel drama have been produced and shown on Dili Television.

Help give a voice to the local church.

Innovative people to produce children and youth resources are needed. People with technical and production skills are actively being sought to capture these moments so that they might be widely shared. Worker are needed to produce materials that represent the true heart of the Gospel. Use your skills to assist in the production of ministry resources.

Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals

There is a great need for born again Christians to demonstrate the power of God at work in and through them. We need people to really pray for a break through where people see that He is God, and that there is freedom and liberty in following and walking with him.

Demographics of People Being Ministered To

Who
People Group(s)
Religion/Beliefs
The Portuguese influence and early Catholic missionaries has resulted in more than 90% of the population being nominally Catholic, and East Timor becoming one of only two Asian nations with a Catholic majority. However this is often only a veneer over traditional animistic practices. Most people live in constant fear and bondage to evil spirits, and do not know of the freedom that Jesus can bring.
