I was impressed by how they recruited and equipped the people they send to the mission field and then follow up with missionary care. While they send their recruits and seasoned staff to the unreached people groups of the world who have neither church nor Scripture, PBT makes sure their team is properly trained for cross-culture work. God has blessed them with substantial growth, in people, funding, and facilities over the last few years. When many organizations have been struggling just to keep even, this group has been growing. They've got to be doing something right if the Lord has blessed them at that level in these tough times!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Dallas, at their International Service Center and in Madang Province of Papua New Guinea, one of their mission fields.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would refer more people to consider joining PBT's effort and encourage those who cannot go to at least send by making more and larger donations. There is still lots left to do in order for the unreached to hear the Good News of Jesus.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
It is a humbling experience to be in the company of these people! I am always impressed by their level of commitment, love for each other, and strong prayer life.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Intelligent, personable, and willing to help, in whatever capacity asked. Many are young Bible College grads, but others are retirees with many years of experience in a wide variety of professions and occupations.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
develop more facilities overseas to train foreign nationals to help in translation and developing church leadership, provide better infrastructure for the work being done.
Ways to make it better...
I had been more faithful in my own Christian witness, earlier in my life than I was. I might feel less uneasy among such dedicated people.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
Continuing to grow in the current economic climate: developing the needed financial and prayer partnerships.
One thing I'd also say is that...
Jesus said He wasn't coming back until we took the Gospel to the ends of the earth, and these are the people getting that job done; why not help them do that?
