The aging Ngain man slowly shook his head from side to side. He had heard that the Word of God had come to the Mibus, and he thought about visiting them so he could learn what God wanted him to know. But he understood only a few words of their language. “Some day, someone may bring this message to my people so we too can understand. ”
“But,” he wondered, “what if I die before then? What will happen to me?”
It’s a question shared by countless people across the globe. “What will happen to me when I die?” Tragically, for this man — and millions among the unreached peoples of Papua New Guinea and elsewhere — the answer is still out of reach.
In fact, more than 100 people groups have asked New Tribes Mission for help. They have a desperate desire to learn the message of God’s Word. The challenge we face today is in training more people to meet the urgent demand for missionary teams.
