Pioneers goes to the ends of the earth in relentless pursuit of the unreached.
Tonight is baking night at Lindsey’s house!
Lindsey wrote a book called "For The Love of Baking and Jesus." It was written as a six-week study for small groups where every week you bake a new recipe and have a spiritual discussion together.
Each night, Lindsey explains what they’ll be baking and briefly teaches about different things like measuring cups and spoons. Everyone in the group has a job to do. No baker left behind!
This evening, they’re cooking carrot cake. While the cake is in the oven, the group sits down and has a discussion about a spiritual topic, in French. In general the discussion stems from one of these two questions: Am I loved? What can I offer the world?
After their discussion, they decorate the cake! The French particularly enjoy the creative process of baking… So, Lindsey always makes sure to have an opportunity for self expression!
We'd love to continue Lindsey's ministry around the world! Invite a mixture of believing and non-believing friends over for an evening, bake something fun, talk about the hard questions and earnestly pray that God shows up during your time together.
We hope you enjoy this little glimpse into what a baking night looks like at Lindsey's house 😁
Today, Lindsey takes us to see one of the churches nearby and reflects on how they've primarily become empty, ornate buildings.
To kick off our trip, along with a little music to enjoy while you read, here are 10 fun facts about France:
1. France is the world's most popular tourist destination
2. We can thank the French for canned goods including both mason jars and tin cans.
3. The reading and writing system for the blind, braille, was developed by a Frenchman Louis Braille who was blinded as a child.
4. The French invented the metric system in 1793.
5. Louis XIX was the king for an entire 20 minutes.
6. France was the first country in the world to ban supermarkets from throwing away or destroying unsold food.
7. France produces nearly 1 billion tons of cheese a year and 1,200 varieties.
8. They also eat around 30,000 tons of snails a year.
9. More than half of the world's roundabouts are in France.
10. The French value directness.

Are you willing to be someone’s Valentine?
St. Valentine was a priest in Rome during heavy persecution against Christians. Valentine was arrested for evangelising and sent to Emperor Claudius. When he shared the gospel with the emperor, Emperor Claudius told him to renounce Jesus or be killed. Valentine refused. So he was beaten and then beheaded on 14 February 269 AD. What a bold follower of Jesus!

Could you dedicate your summer to missions? You don't have to want to be a career missionary to do that.
The trip may not add value to your resume, but will add value to the Kingdom of God.
Consider how you can use your summer to glorify God and build His Kingdom among people that have never had the chance to know Him.
The Edge program is designed for you to be more like Jesus by the end of the summer than you are at the beginning. It's not about pitching long-term missions to you. It's about developing you spiritually so that you can impact the world, wherever you go.

Watch the Boyles get started on their journey to Japan as they experience the culture and meet people there for the first time. That's when they decided to trust God for the resources they would need to bring the good news of eternal peace through Jesus to Japan.
In future posts, we'll pick up with them as they continue to study the Japanese language, make friends and encourage believers who are faithfully following Jesus in Japan.

🙏 "Prayer changes us profoundly." R.C. Sproul
“Prayer does change things, all kinds of things. But the most important thing it changes is us. As we engage in this communion with God more deeply and come to know the One with whom we are speaking more intimately, that growing knowledge of God reveals to us all the more brilliantly who we are and our need to change in conformity to Him. Prayer changes us profoundly.” - R C Sproul

To a Western eye, it’s easy to see Pakistan in stereotypes. But in this episode of Multiply, one Pioneer witnesses up close the complexity, wonder, beauty and devastation found in Pakistan. And now Pioneers are challenging the Chinese church to take good news across the border into Pakistan. By mobilizing and resourcing these brothers and sisters in Christ, we empower them to be ambassadors for Jesus. And perhaps God has reserved this honor of taking the gospel to the people of Pakistan especially for them.
God is at work finding strategic roads to bring the gospel to those who need it.
An incredible example of this is how God is calling Chinese Christians to bring the gospel to Pakistan.
Make sure to watch our video "Multiply: Pakistan" that comes out on Facebook this afternoon!

Few of us would deny that today’s missionaries should strive to be like the Apostle Paul. Clear on the message, bold, willing to suffer, focused and tenacious. Paul was all these things and more. Take a fresh look at Paul’s Roman adventure!

A story about trash can remind us that God works in mysterious ways. 💸
While God is doing an incredible thing by bring the nations to our doorstep, many people with no access to the gospel live in places that are hard to get to and, according to American standards, hard to live in.
Pioneers teams in Chad work to start church-planting movements among unreached people groups with no known believers. If you wanted to visit them, your itinerary might look something like this: ✈️➡️🚣➡️✈️➡️⚠️➡️🐴➡️💤...
Once you finally arrive, you discover that there's no running water and no electricity. These hard-to-get-to places are often forgotten and still waiting to be touched with God's Word.
Are you someone who might be willing to partner with God in multiplying His Church in the tough-to-live places?
Keep an eye out for our video "Multiply: Chad" that will be posted on Sunday!

A BIG YEAR! In 2019 we received more than 700 Start forms… 719 to be exact. What is that and why does it matter?
The Start form is the first step for many people exploring serving with Pioneers. Maybe they met someone from our team at a conference or event or found us on the web.
This is the highest number of Start forms we have ever received in a single year. That’s worth celebrating, and here’s why. It represents a step of faith for more than 700 people seeking God and His will for their lives regarding the Great Commission.
Not all will go and not all should. Not all will go with Pioneers and not all should. But all took a step, and in doing so gave us a reminder that God is still raising up laborers for the harvest field.
🙏 Let's pray that God would keep, lead and use them for His glory among the nations.

Our weaknesses and limitations can be so discouraging, but sometimes God uses them more than our strengths and successes. How has God surprised you recently?
New York, the most populous and diverse city in the US, is home to nearly 1 million Muslims—most of whom are immigrants from unreached parts of the world. Whether there for education, work or political asylum, Muslims are often open to spiritual conversations. Find out how a team in New York is reaching out in friendship to Muslim seekers with the Good News of Jesus—and explore how you can get involved. #makedisciples #loveyourneighbor

Many westerners have developed a perception of Islam flowing from a culture of fear rather than a culture of mercy, love and compassion. Yet New York City alone has almost a million Muslims in need of Christ. These are spiritually open and sensitive people who talk often about their relationship with God. In many ways, it's easier to have a conversation about God with a Muslim than it is to talk with your average American about their faith. Let's not let fear get in the way of how God may want to multiply His Church among the nations. #newyork #wontyoubemyneighbor #islam #muslims

While the hope of the gospel has been spreading for thousands of years, millions of people have not yet had an opportunity to hear it. Determined to reach the ends of the earth with the Good News, we are dedicated to the relentless pursuit of the unreached.
For 40 years now, Pioneers missionaries have been using innovative and creative means to bring the gospel to every corner of the globe.
Founded in 1979 by former businessman Ted Fletcher and his wife, Peggy, Pioneers partners with local churches to make disciples and initiate church-planting movements among unreached peoples—cultural and ethnic groups without a self-sustaining witness to the gospel in their own cultures.
From business and education to healthcare, agriculture, the arts, and more, our 3,000 global members use their diverse gifts and experience to serve in needy communities. Whether in sprawling cities or rural villages, our teams make their homes in unreached contexts and learn new languages. They use innovative and creative means to build relationships and make disciples. They introduce people to the Bible and share the gospel in culturally understandable ways.
Each missionary is commissioned by a sending church. The sacrificial gifts of friends, family, and churches provide financial support. This makes it possible for cross-cultural missionaries to work alongside local believers with a heart to see disciples making disciples, worldwide.
Our goal is to exceed your expectations by offering you a POWERFUL experience with a POSITIVE word in a PRACTICAL way.
A life-impacting ministry for women focusing on the transformation of their hearts through God’s Word and prayer to live a victorious life.
