   PRESIDENT’S
     LETTER




DEaR FRIEND oF PIoNEERS,




T
        his is a very exciting time to be involved in global mission.
        Three things in particular encourage my heart. First, the
        global economic downturn is forcing God’s people back to
the basics. We are being reminded that life is not primarily about
“things that can be seen, but things that cannot be seen” (2 Cor.
4:18). Many of us are simplifying our lives, refocusing our passions,
and returning to a bedrock of prayer and faith.
  Second, the global mission movement is rapidly gaining momen-
tum. More and more in my travels, I am meeting missionaries
from Latin America, Africa, or Asia who are zealously pioneering
new ministries among the least reached. They serve with a simple
yet powerful faith. These people simply cannot be stopped and
their numbers are growing!
  Third, I find the variety and creativity of modern missions to be
breathtaking. You’ll see a few examples in this issue of BottomLine
Connection. The gifting of God’s people is being unleashed like
never before! I feel like we are witnessing a second Reformation as
the body of Christ rediscovers the “missionhood of the believer.”
  Don’t let the doom and gloom in today’s news fool you. We are
                   first and foremost citizens of heaven, not citizens
                   of this world. I for one am grateful to be a witness
                   and participant in the advancement of today’s
                   real news—“Aslan is on the move.”

                                                      Grateful for your partnership,
Steve Richardson is

        A visit with Pioneers teams in Peru
                         debunks the notion that Latin America
                  is already reached with the gospel.

   Eastern Europe The neighborhood boys stared in defiance as I pulled into the
driveway. We had already had a few run-ins, so they didn’t like me and I didn’t
like them. But today something was different. a couple of the hoods were cradling
musical instruments—guitars! I was tired and intended to slip past them, but a
small voice told me to check it out. I could feel the hostility as I walked up. “Can I
see your guitar?” They snickered but then handed one over. as soon as I tweaked
one of the tuning keys, a rusty old string popped. More laughter. But one thing
led to another, and soon they were all sitting at my picnic table while I repaired,
restrung and tuned their guitars. Then came the request. “Would you teach us how
to play?” The following week, as we sat down for the first lesson, I explained, “By
the way, I teach guitar using songs about God.” They looked at each other and
protested that they were Muslims. “Sorry, the lessons are free, but those are my
conditions.” It’s been about six months now. They come faithfully every Wednes-
day, and the group has grown to eight. They have come to some youth group
meetings, and one boy has started attending the Bible study. In the meantime, my
daughters say there’s been a miraculous change in their street manners. Instead
of rude comments, the boys now wave politely to them and make their friends do
the same. Still, my daughter said it was shocking the first time she came home to
find the neighborhood terror sitting in her living room strumming.

         hope is a new curriculum on children at risk created by Caleb Resources,
         a Pioneers team based in Denver. The unique feature of Red Card is the
target audience—families. It builds family unity and empowers kids to become
advocates for vulnerable children, their own peers. This 8-week family class raises
awareness of six different types of children at risk: children in poverty, orphans,
street kids, child laborers, children of war, and children affected by hIV/aIDS.
hands-on learning allows participants to step into the daily lives of children at
risk, motivating them to make a difference. Red Card will be available June 1.
