In the first week of November, all the Within Reach Global local missionaries and foreign staff gathered together for a 3 day convention at The Hub outreach center. Many of them traveled nearly 10 hours from our other outreach centers that they minister at.


We heard some amazing reports, evaluation from the past months of ministry, strategic planning for the coming years and reviewing our vision and mission statement.

We are trailblazers, bringing light and living water to unreached people groups!”

There are some hurdles—from family and governmental persecution, to poverty, cross cultural difficulties, and dealing with hard hearts. Yet these unknown heroes are not giving up. In fact, our hearts burst with joy as our underground local missionaries are becoming more passionate about reaching the lost in creative ways!

Sister Deng wept with compassion as she shared her heart to open the first ever children’s ministry outreach among the Yao people group. In the history of the planet, there has never been a ministry like this among her tribe! We were thrilled at the idea, and feel that it is a great ministry to start reaching the young generation, and in turn, their families and villages.

Please pray for us and for the Yao tribe, as we just found out that the government relocated all the villagers into tents, and bulldozed all the houses to build a new community. We are still uncertain how they will be compensated. It could turn out to be a good thing, but the families that our local missionaries are ministering to are all affected.

But in transition and calamity, there is great opportunity for sharing God’s grace and love.
