One of the most important trends in missions today is the increasing number of cross-cultural missionaries sent by “two-thirds world” countries. Since 1991, Partners International has been assisting a unique ministry called Pueblos Musulmanes Internacional (Muslim Peoples International) that has pioneered this trend in the Muslim world. This leading Latin American mission agency trains and deploys Latin Americans to live and witness throughout the Muslim world. Today, nearly 150 Maghreb Project missionaries are ministering in 10 countries.

One of the most important trends in missions today is the increasing number of cross-cultural missionaries sent by “two-thirds world” countries. Since 1991, Partners International has been assisting a unique ministry called the Maghreb Project that has pioneered this trend in the Muslim world. This leading Latin American mission agency trains and deploys Latin Americans to live and witness throughout the Muslim world. Today, nearly 150 Maghreb Project missionaries are ministering in 10 countries.

An invisible line runs the breadth of the African continent from the west coast in Senegal across to Ethiopia on the eastern seaboard, dividing the predominately Christian south from the majority Muslim north. Many of the original inhabitants of this region were Christians until Islam washed over the continent in the seventh century, converting many. Today, most countries in North Africa are less than one percent Christian.

Due to the strength of Islam, the love of Christ must be demonstrated to the people of North and West Africa in a culturally sensitive and appropriate way to ultimately touch their hearts and lives with the Gospel. Humanitarian projects are a powerful way to do just that. People who have no access to medical care are grateful for a clinic in their own village, and families trapped in poverty are blessed by training in vocational skills. These acts of love break down barriers and create a hearing for the Gospel.

Because of the lack of indigenous Christian workers in Islamic countries, Latin Americans have taken up the challenge to reach Muslims for Christ. They are well suited for ministry among Muslims, having many cultural similarities such as their view of family, time, and relationships.

Partners International is privileged to have played a strategic role in helping to launch the Latin American mission movement back in the 1980s, and we are even more blessed today to see its fruit taking an active role in church planting across the Muslim world.
