Advocating For Peoples and Workers

Who Will Go? Who Will Pray?  Who Will Send?

The first reason SEAMIST-USA was formed was to be an advocate for the people groups in South East Asia who live day by day spiritually helpless and hopeless, far from God.  We do not apologize for believing the declaration of Jesus that He is the ONLY way that man can come to God (John 14:6).  These peoples live without a close relationship to the God Who created them, doomed to an eternity far from His Presence.  SEAMIST-USA wants churches, individuals, companies, and organizations to pay attention to their spiritual need and to do something about it.

We really do believe we can change the world because our God promises to do just that.  If God's people will pay attention to what God is doing, join Him in His work, and wait in faith, NOTHING is impossible!  We advocate the adoption of people groups for prayer and outreach, and the adoption of church planting workers who will GO and PREACH to these least reached peoples.

How does it work?  In 2007 a small church in Missouri adopted a people group, the Aeta Negritos of Mabinay.  They prayed regularly for a church to be established there.  They gave $100 to pay for galvanized iron for a roof for a "community center" that the people there wanted to build.  They gave $50 for transportation to send a worker.  As needs arose they assisted the church planters as the Lord provided them.  By July 2008, there were three churches in the area, more than 20 elders and 3 ordained pastors, and hundreds of converts.  The work there continues to grow to this day.

In July of 2008, the church planter died of liver cancer at only 31 years old.  The little church in Missouri grieved with the widow and helped her continue her husband's work with the Aeta.  Other workers were trained to coninue equiping the leaders to equip the Aeta believers to do the work of the ministry (Ephesians 4:11-13).  By July, 2009, the widow knew she was leaving to go to Thailand to work with another unreached people group.  The church in Missouri contines to this day to pray for and support BOTH the Aeta work in the Philippines and that widow who has now taken her two children and is leaning the Thai language and culture in preparations for work with the Shan peopel in that area.

You can get involved!  It is easy!

  1. Pray and ask God about a people group to pray for.  Adopt them.  We have 122 suggestions if you need one.

  2.  Pray for the people group to be reached with the good news.  Learn all you can about that group so you can pray intelligently.  Bing or Google them on the internet.  There are many ways to get information. 

  3.  Find some missionary or organization that is working to reach them or has a vision to go to them.  Get information from them.  Find out what you can do to help. 

  4.  Get others to pray together with you for what the people group needs, and listen to God while you pray.  When you are praying in agreement with God and others, your prayers are POWERFUL.  

  5.  Reach out to the people in the group.  Find some of them on the internet.  Go and visit them short term.  Go as a missionary.  If you can't go, send:    Adopt a missionary who is going to them for prayer and support.

"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent?" Romans 10:13-15

In this passage there is GOD, the LOST, the PREACHER, and the SENDER?  Which one are you?

Which ONE are you?
